Syrma Joins the DASH7 Alliance to Make Wireless Devices
San Jose, California, USA – October 27, 2010: Syrma SGS Technology, a leader in electronic design and manufacturing services serving global OEMs, has joined the DASH7 Alliance. The DASH7 Alliance is a newly formed wireless industry consortium with the shared goals of making wireless devices based on the ISO 18000-7 (DASH7) standard more accessible to greater numbers of people and organizations, emphasizing DASH7’s low-power and scalability, and cultivating a global network of DASH7 ecosystem partners. DASH7 is essentially an active RFID air interface technology, and Syrma brings many years of experience in radio-frequency identification (RFID) product engineering and manufacturing technology. The addition of this technology expands Syrma’s capabilities to support its OEM customer base in launching new solutions to the market. Syrma brings building block engineering, manufacturing, and testing services that enable OEMs to deploy DASH7 technology in new RFID and M-to-M communication products more effectively. This new wireless sensor networking (WSN) technology evolved from a combination of existing RFID and sensing technologies. Products with DASH7 capability built-in or attached to them will dramatically simplify how we keep in touch with the non-human world around us, improving the wireless communications capabilities of a wide range of mobile devices. Syrma’s present RFID product offerings include passive tags and transponders in 125 kHz and 13.56 MHz frequencies. All RFID and tag solutions are produced in a flexible capacity manufacturing model, enabling low-volume custom tag requirements to be mid/high-volume applications. “Participation in the DASH7 Alliance will enable expansion of our RFID tag solutions to include DASH7-based technology products. This alliance will greatly enhance our ability to lead our customers to introduce this exciting technology. We’re also proud to be the first India-based participant in the alliance, and we look forward to helping promote adoption of the DASH7 technology in the region,” said Sreeram Srinivasan, Syrma’s CEO. ”We’re excited that Syrma has joined the DASH7 Alliance’s growing roster of industry leaders. Our mission is to make the benefits of DASH7 wireless sensor networking a reality for government and commercial organizations throughout the world in 2010,” said Patrick Burns, DASH7 Alliance President.
