Panasonic Acquires Tropian for Polar Modulation in Wireless Transmitters

Panasonic Corporation of North America will acquire the assets of Tropian, a start-up developing polar modulation techniques for use in wireless transmitter applications. Tropian's technique, when applied to the transmitter function of wireless communication systems, will enable significant reductions in power consumption and size of equipment.

Panasonic plans to integrate Tropian's intellectual property and core team into Panasonic Emerging Advanced RF Laboratory (PEARL), a new unit of Panasonic R&D Company of America that will be established this month with approximately 40 employees.
