“Opportunity is never in the moment, it’s in the preparation that leads you to that moment,” says Bradley Agallio, iCorp Technologies’ CEO. “The Internet of Things is creating a new quantifiable and measurable world, a world where people and businesses can manage their assets in a more informed way, taking both safety and health into consideration. The world is evolving at such a fast pace that there is a huge demand for products such as machine-to-machine (M2M), wearables, gaming, computers, entertainment systems and smartphones. Simply put: if you’re not connected you’re offline. There is an ever-increasing demand for connectivity in the marketplace.
“In a year, around 1 trillion electronic chips are made and for every person on the planet, there are 128 chips produced. An ever-increasing demand for a connected world has led to an increase in demand, however the current Covid-19 pandemic has had a direct effect on supply due to major allocation issues on chips and other components. The lead time for high-end semiconductors, which is usually long, has increased drastically from 12 weeks to 36 weeks plus. Electronics firms like AMD, Qualcomm, Sony and others have also been facing chip shortages. With electronics companies working on increasing production, there is no sign that the demand for semiconductors is going to slow down in 2021.”
Over the last 14 years iCorp has grown steadily and acquired significant market share in its competing segments. As part of its Digital Transformation (DX) drive and Continuous Next initiative, the company has strategically partnered with world-leading connectivity manufacturers to offer technologies and products which showcase its IoT, NB-IoT and IIoT footprint, inter alia GSM, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Sigfox, LoRa, Ubiscale cloud services and other innovative offerings. From the design-in phase or a product concept, iCorp’s offering to its customers can assist them in creating intelligent M2M and IoT devices that connect and communicate smarter, quicker and securely.
As part of its drive to expand its portfolio, the company has secured new distribution agreements with SG Micro and CML Microcircuits.
SG Micro specialises in high-performance, high-quality analog IC design, marketing and sales, and offers innovative solutions for a broad range of applications in wireless communication, consumer, medical, automotive and industrial markets.
SG Micro has introduced more than 1500 analog IC products with high reliability and consistency, including precision signal conditioning products such as amplifiers, buffers, comparators, switches and interface products, as well as energy-efficient power management ICs with improved performance such as longer battery life, fewer peripheral components, smaller PCB space and lower cost.
CML Microcircuits is a leader in the design, development and supply of low-power analog, digital and mixed-signal semiconductors for telecommunications systems globally. Focusing on narrowband communications, its ICs are found in digital/analog PMR/LMR, wireless data, satellite communications and marine radio applications, such as TETRA, DMR, dPMR, scada systems and AIS. The CML portfolio provides components supporting both RF and baseband functionality, encompassing both leading-edge digital and legacy analog systems.
