Morse Micro Named to Fast Company’s 2023 List of the Next Big Things in Tech

List Recognizes Tech Breakthroughs Across Industries That Promise to Transform the Future

SYDNEY & IRVINE, Calif., November 29, 2023 – Morse Micro, a fast-growing fabless semiconductor company focused on Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, today announced its inclusion in Fast Company’s third annual Next Big Things in Tech list. This prestigious list honors technological breakthroughs with the potential to shape the future of industries— from healthcare and security to artificial intelligence and data.

Morse Micro’s Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow technology marks a significant breakthrough in wireless connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT). The rapid growth of the IoT has sparked a rethinking of conventional Wi-Fi, revealing technological gaps and the protocol’s role in today’s increasingly connected world. The higher demands for long-range connectivity and the low power requirements of today’s IoT devices require a new type of Wi-Fi.

At the forefront of this transformation, Morse Micro’s Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow system-on-chip (SoC) products offer unparalleled wireless capabilities. Wi-Fi HaLow overcomes the limitations of traditional Wi-Fi by operating on narrow frequency bands in the unlicensed sub-1 GHz spectrum. Wi-Fi HaLow excels in penetrating obstacles and offers 10 times the range, 100 times the coverage area, and 1000 times the volume of traditional W-Fi technologies. These features position Wi-Fi HaLow as an optimal choice for low-power, long-reach IoT use cases across various industries, including home and building automation, industrial IoT, smart agriculture, transportation, logistics, asset management, access control, security systems, smart city infrastructure and wearables.

Morse Micro’s dedication to advancing Wi-Fi HaLow technology is evident in their $200M (AUD) in funding for research and development. The company’s Wi-Fi HaLow SoCs, modules, and reference designs are available now for deployment, ensuring readiness for Wi-Fi certification and multi-vendor interoperability, while accelerating time-to-market and gaining consumer acceptance.

“Being included in Fast Company’s Next Big Things in Tech is a testament to our team’s innovation and dedication and our technology’s potential to redefine IoT connectivity,” said Michael De Nil, co-founder and CEO at Morse Micro. “Our Wi-Fi HaLow technology is not just another wireless product—it’s a pivotal innovation for the future of smart, connected IoT solutions across numerous industries.”

“The Next Big Things in Tech is not just a look around the corner—it’s a look around the corner after that,” says Brendan Vaughan, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. “These are the products and ideas that will define technological innovation for the rest of this decade and beyond—and solve some of the world’s most pressing issues. We are thrilled to honor the organizations that are making them a reality.
