Partner programme to help wireless developers speed time-to-market

23 June 2021 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT News

Recently, Nordic Semiconductor announced the launch of the ‘Nordic Partner Program’ (NPP), creating an ecosystem of companies with experience of Nordic’s solutions in order to drive greater adoption of wireless technology and help the company’s customers bring their wireless products to market faster.

The NPP includes both ‘Design Partners’ and ‘Solution Partners’ that can assist Nordic customers by providing products, services and solutions that complement Nordic’s portfolio of short-range wireless and low-power cellular IoT connectivity hardware, firmware, development tools and reference designs.

Design and Solution Partners

During the pilot project phase of the NPP, eight leading IoT companies signed up to the NPP framework, including Design Partners CA Engineering, Indesign, Sigma Connectivity, Shenzhen Minew Technologies, Meshtech and NORBIT, as well as Solution Partner Telenor ASA. German firm grandcentrix has joined both as a Design Partner and Solution Partner.

Design Partners are familiar with Nordic technologies and can offer design consultancy, design engineering or ODM services. They can assist with a specific aspect of a complex design or provide turnkey solutions and can be used by Nordic customers to outsource or accelerate the design and launch of new products.

Solution Partners can provide solutions that run on Nordic technology – for example, third-party protocols and development kits, or real-time location services (RTLS) – and complementary technologies such as cloud and cellular connectivity, as well as pre-production services such as programming, testing and certification.

Applications open

The NPP is now officially open to all companies already working with Nordic. Companies wishing to become NPP Design or Solution Partners should contact their Nordic sales representative (see contact details below). Following the qualification process, members can leverage Nordic Semiconductor marketing channels and gain access to dedicated technical resources including training and roadmaps.
