The ZigBee Alliance teams up with Texas Instruments to add IP capabilities to its wireless devices, opening the door for lots of exciting connectivity options

Monday, April 27th, 2009

“We’ve seen ZigBee wireless functionality showing up in everything from remote controls to robots, but apparently that was all just the beginning. The Alliance has announced plans to expand its low-power standards to support Internet Protocol, a move that member-company Texas Instruments is apparently quite pleased about — perhaps seeing an opportunity to make up some of those declining sales in the mobile phone area. IP connectivity in all sorts of random devices should open the door for plenty of exciting and new-fangled connectivity options, all of which can only mean one thing: dung beetle MMO.”

Eginity Invited to Present at FVF Early Stage Venture Capital Conference

Eginity Invited to Present at Florida Venture Forum Early Stage Venture Capital Conference May 15

ORLANDO, Fla. (April 23, 2009) – Eginity, an Orlando-based company that specializes in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology, has been invited to showcase itself at the Florida Venture Forum 2009 Early Stage Venture Capital Conference May 15 at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate.

Rob Allen, president and co-founder of the one-year-old start-up firm, said he’s confident that Eginity’s new EON Platform – an end-to-end WSN solution – will get a lot of attention from venture capital investors.

“The WSN market is substantial,” Allen said. “WSN has already been spotlighted by leading IT researchers as one of the top 10 technology growth sectors through 2012,” he added.

“WSN technology gives an IP-address to an object, making it ‘smart’ – meaning it can gather and transmit information about its condition or environment over the Internet,” explained Allen. “Although WSNs are used extensively in defense and industrial settings, high costs have limited use in other areas. The EON Platform eliminates this issue, paving the way for the development of hundreds of new ‘smart’ commercial applications,” he said.

“Eginity’s EON Platform was designed to be licensed or acquired by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for incorporation into existing or new products,” Allen said.

“We have expertise at every level of WSN technology, and the resulting uncomplicated design of the EON Platform will make it the cornerstone for new WSN applications,” he added.

EON Platform technology will enable manufacturers to substantially reduce the costs of existing sensor networks, enable current “stand-alone” sensor applications with WSN functionality, or invent and rapidly develop new “smart” solutions.

Eginity is a member client of the University of Central Florida Business Incubation Program.
