@Gary But Neul originally said they would leave it up to others to make the chips. I think Neul expected to make their money taking a few nanocents for each byte of data that gets transmitted and for administering the dynamic databases of available frequencies. However, it looks like they need to make the chips as well, at last to encourage others to get involved?

It is great to see silicon in the field that can demonstrate Weightless in action. A low cost, m2m communication system is a key piece of the IoT explosion that is on the verge of happening. This is the first stop towards a sub-$2 radio module that has a 10 year battery life and a 10km range. The future is bright.

WiFi uses 20MHz channel bandwidth at 2.4GHz, so BW/carrier ratio is approximately the same for both cases. It should not cause any significant difficulties. Choice of CDMA versus OFDMA is a long-running dispute and depends on many factors.

6/8MHz channel bandwidth seems quite wide compare to their carrier frequency. Is that OFDM for throughput, or spectrum spreading for CDMA? Neul website does not show technical detail such as modulation method...

Why Connect a Car?
May 11, 1pm EDT Monday
Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderators a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
