ConnectBlue, Sigma Connectivity Partner to Deliver IoT Solutions

Jan. 21, 2014
Automated test fixtures from Sigma, designed for high volume production, will enhance the production of ConnectBlue wireless modules and other products.

ConnectBlue, a global provider of industrial wireless products, has signed an agreement with Sigma Connectivity, a Swedish IT consulting firm owned by Danir, for new products supporting the Internet of Things (IoT).

Based on Classic Bluetooth, Bluetooth low energy, WLAN and multi-radio solutions, connectBlue products include ready-to-embed wireless modules as well as ready-to-use wireless serial / Ethernet port adapters and access points. Sigma Connectivity will develop automated test fixtures to be used as test tools in the production facilities where connectBlue’s latest Multiradio module OWL355 is being produced. The same system will be used for all connectBlue’s products.

The automated test fixtures are designed for high volume production and will add flexibility through modular design and increase the current capacity.

“Though our wireless products already are well-known for their robust and reliable operation under the harshest of conditions, we constantly look at how to make the production more streamlined, faster and of even higher quality,” says Rolf Nilsson, CEO of connectBlue. “This is why we have entered into collaboration with Sigma Connectivity to apply an automated test procedure in the production facilities.”

Sigma Connectivity was established in 2013 when Sigma acquired Sony Mobile’s development unit for mobile hardware in Lund, Sweden. Sigma Connectivity encompasses 30 years of experience from the development of mobile products.

Says Fredrik Hedlund, CEO of Sigma Connectivity, “Our ability to offer robust, flexible and cost efficient test solutions is based on many years of high volume production experience. We are confident that we can make a difference in meeting their demand for speed and quality.”
