|Leti partners with Oscaro|
Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, and Oscaro, a leading European e-business company that specializes in the sale of new and genuine automotive parts, announced during Leti Innovation Days that Oscaro will develop Leti’s new Foxy technology to track millions of parcels shipped to customers by e-business.
Developed by Leti, the award-winning Foxy is a single-chip, sub-GHz transceiver designed to connect items to Internet-of-Things (IoT) networks, anywhere in the world. It enables both marginal cost, event-based, massive IoT applications and long-lasting IoT scenarios. Thanks to the optimization found on Foxy, battery lifetimes up to 10 years are possible.
“As a major parcel-delivery and e-business company in Europe and the U.S., Oscaro provides a strong case study of Leti’s ability to deliver a breakthrough, consistent integrated solution for logistics,” said Leti CEO Emmanuel Sabonnadière. “Its differentiator lays in the low-power consumption and previously developed, very cost-effective die that is perfectly suited for e-business.”
“Oscaro needed a low-cost, low-power and reliable parcel-monitoring system that allows us to track our packages in Europe and the U.S. In other words, the real challenge is to give the real power back to the final customer for parcel tracking,” said Pierre-Noël Luiggi, founder & CEO of Oscaro. “Leti met our needs with a robust, dedicated transceiver that is price competitive with other devices on the market.”
