Reicom develops new multi-standard SoC

In a world where information travels everywhere in real-time, drivers have a constant need to remain connected – receiving context aware and constantly updated information.

Reicom, an Italian engineering company specialising in microelectronic systems for telecommunications and advanced embedded systems, has developed patents and technology solutions that can change the way the automotive industry approaches the infotelematics V2V and V2I business.

These solutions work over all well known IEEE standards like 802.11 a/b/g and 802.11p, DSRC and IEEE 802.15.4, and are already applied in the railway industry – allowing services that would not have been possible just a few years ago.

Reicom is one of the world's first companies to develop and integrate broadband connectivity within low-cost OEM multi-standard radio devices that include:

  • A software defined radio platform, capable of being updated even at the modulation level time by time
  • All IEEE standards and modulations, from the IEEE 802.11 a/b/g up to IEEE 802.11p, from the DSRC up to the IEEE 802.15.4 (WSN) and IEEE 802.20 (MBWA)
  • A set of advanced coding-and-decoding, signal management and equalisation techniques that give the baseband (the radio ‘core') the capability of working perfectly, while moving, even in very harsh environments at 300 km/h

Reicom has now introduced its new challenge to the automotive industry: a new multi-standard System on Chip (SoC) optimised for low-cost IEEE multi-standard wireless OEM transceivers specific for automotive applications, enabling the era of V2V and V2I.

Any Tier 1 or vehicle manufacturer can have, in one turnkey OEM broadband radio module, the benefits of Wi-Fi, plus the benefit of IEEE 802.11p and DSRC all together and open to the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) devices, to Bluetooth and to the GSM/GPRS/UMTS world.
