Synapse Wireless Simplifies the Complex

By Paula Bernier January 26, 2016

Synapse Wireless is at IoT Evolution this week in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., talking about how it provides an easy way for folks to focus on their apps, and create complex systems.

The company, which was founded in 2007, started life as a design house. But when one of its clients engaged it to work on a connected solution, the company realized existing solutions were too hard to work with. That was genesis of the Synapse Wireless SNAP platform, explains Jonathan Heath, solution architect at the Huntsville, Ala.-based company.

SNAP enables out-of-the-box development and distributed processing at the edge of the mesh network. As a result, millions of diverse devices fitted with Synapse sensor technology for wireless communication can communicate in a way that makes each sensor and device part of an intelligent system. Synapse Wireless, says Heath, is focused on things and how to program devices, commission devices, and get those through development phase with the engineer.

Synapse Wireless sells its solutions to application developers. One of its customers is

Sigma Automation, which provides solutions to food companies to use at their plants. Its solutions do things such as temperature control for meat processing, predictive maintenance on machinery, and more.

Among the recently launched Synapse Wireless solutions is a gateway with Wi-Fi connectivity for interacting with devices locally, and an optional cellular interface. The company also recently rolled out its simplySNAP remote-control lighting solution. And it’s in soft launch with its EK2100-220 and EK5100 development kits, both of which will be available in the next couple of weeks.

Synapse Wireless is here in Ft. Lauderdale presenting on a connected home panel as well as talking about how to build better betas. The company also has some of its people attending the certification series at Telit DevCon, which is related to the IoT Evolution Expo and collocated with ITEXPO.
