Ozmo Devices Cites Traction for Low-power Wi-Fi

Ozmo Devices announced a milestone for its low-power Wi-Fi Personal Area Network (Wi-Fi PAN) silicon -- the shipment of its 1 millionth OZMO2000 chip, which started shipping earlier this year.

"Ozmo is addressing a very large market opportunity currently served by Bluetooth and proprietary 2.4GHz technologies," said Bill McLean, Chief Executive Officer, Ozmo Devices. "Shipping one million units so soon after introducing the OZMO2000 demonstrates rapid market adoption and is a strong validation of Ozmo's compelling value proposition. We are determined to further expand our market leadership in the low-power Wi-Fi market."

Ozmo said its Wi-Fi chip is designed o overcome the battery life, cost and compatibility issues that have limited the broad adoption of Wi-Fi for HID (human interface device) applications. Furthermore, the OZMO2000 has demonstrated its applicability for wireless audio when Intel selected it to power the Intel® Wireless Music adaptor for Intel® WiDi-enabled laptops. It is compatible with Windows 7 SoftAP as well as Intel's My Wi-Fi Technology. Furthermore, the OZMO2000 is designed to be compatible with the Wi-Fi Direct standard from the Wi-Fi Alliance.
