Ember Corp., a startup developer of Zigbee wireless chips for embedded systems, has opened a new facility in Cambridge, England, to house an expanded radio IC design team and a business development team serving Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Ember acquired a portfolio of 802.15.4 radio frequency (RF) integrated circuit technology from Cambridge Consultants Ltd. (Cambridge, England) in March 2004 and also hired the engineering team that developed the technology.

"One measure of an industry standard's market success is its adoption across all regions of the world. Ember's growing base of international customers, partners and offices demonstrates that ZigBee is achieving that goal," said Bob Heile, chairman of the ZigBee Alliance, in a statement. Ember claimed it had achieved 50 design wins in the first half of 2005.

"With major customers like Philips Lighting, Eaton, Control4, Raymarine, NURI, rolling out Ember-enabled ZigBee products, the market is set accelerate rapidly over the next several years. We are also getting ready to announce more major customers in the coming weeks," said Venkat Bahl, Ember's vice president of marketing.
