Silicon Labs has expanded its connectivity portfolio with the purchase of Zentri, an innovator in low-power, cloud-connected wi-fi technologies for the Internet of Things (IoT), for an undisclosed sum.


The 2014 start-up’s mobile and cloud-connected products helps industrial, commercial and consumer firms to securely connect and manage their products on a global basis.


Zentri claims its combination of modules, embedded and cloud software, APIs and tools enables rapid development of secure IoT end node products in a matter of weeks. By eliminating the need for wireless design expertise and providing a library of cloud-connected applications, IoT device makers can focus on differentiating their products and speeding time to market, it added.


“This acquisition builds upon our strategy to deliver comprehensive, multiprotocol silicon and software solutions to securely connect IoT products to the cloud,” said Tyson Tuttle, CEO of Silicon Labs. “Zentri’s wi-fi expertise, software and tools will extend our multiprotocol connectivity portfolio to a wider range of power-sensitive IoT end node applications.”


Silicon Labs, based in Austin, Texas, is a provider of silicon, software and system solutions for the Internet of Things, internet infrastructure, industrial automation, consumer and automotive markets.
