LEGIC Identsystems and Dresden-based Sensry (http://www.sensry.net), a leading provider of IoT sensor and sensor fusion nodes, announce a long-term strategic partnership to create a secure, end-to-end “Industrial IoT sensor platform”.
“This new platform will combine LEGIC’s 25 years of end-to-end security expertise with Sensry’s deep knowledge in high-performance, low-power, wireless sensor node technology”, said Anthony Fitze, Head of Business Unit IoT at LEGIC, “Building on our recent acquisition of the Bosch XDK Platform, this partnership will provide existing and new customers with a secure and powerful solution for deploying high-end sensor nodes that can be provisioned, configured and managed from the cloud. This eliminates the need for factory pre-configuration which reduces cost, increases flexibility and simplifies logistics.”
Backed by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the leading organization for applied research in Europe, as well GlobalFoundries, the world’s fourth largest semiconductor foundry, Sensry is led by a senior team of IoT veterans with over 150 man-years of know-how in the development of smart and secure sensors for leading-edge IoT applications.
“We are excited to work with LEGIC to combine our best-in-class technologies to create a secure, configurable and affordable platform that allows customers to focus on their IoT applications and business models, and not on underlying connectivity, sensor or security issues” said Konrad Herre, Co-Founder and CEO at Sensry.
Sample and prototyping kit for the platform are planned for Q2 2022.
Sensry supports customers with sensor and sensor fusion nodes developing customized high integrated modular systems of sensors, powerful computing and control units and
communication interfaces. The system components are based on the latest technologies and manufactured in cooperation with market leaders for volume production and are supported with software development kits (SDK). Sensry was established in November 2018 in Dresden, Germany, the largest microelectronics center in Europe and number 5 in the world and has development collaborations with several Fraunhofer institutes as well as strategic partnerships with GlobalFoundries and MST Group to ensure production within Europe. www.sensry.net
