Morse Micro is a Sydney based fabless semiconductor startup developing Wi-Fi HaLow chips for the Internet of Things (IoT) market which are 5x smaller & cheaper, 10x longer range and 200x lower power than conventional Wi-Fi chips.
Morse Micros chip uses a 900MHz radio band which boasts extended range and lower power consumption compared to the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands used by conventional Wi-Fi.
Morse Micro was founded in 2016 by Michael De Nil & Andrew Terry and is based in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, with additional offices in Irvine, California and China.
Morse Micro's mission is to enable the multi-billion device IoT market with its low power Wi-Fi HaLow chips.
Morse Micro's Wi-Fi technology is designed for any IoT vendor looking to incorporate a robust, long range, ultra-low power wireless solution. Wi-Fi HaLow technology covers 100 times the area, and 1000 times the volume of conventional Wi-Fi. A single AP can service cavernous warehouses with thousands of low-power trackers and security devices.
Morse Micros chip supports high bandwidths and very large networks: over 8,000 devices can be connected to a single access point, with data rates of many megabits-per-second. This enables its use in a wide range of applications beyond the traditional IoT use cases of smart homes and sensor networks, including industrial controls, asset management, video, retail signs and displays.
Morse Micro is backed by Ray Stata and Main Sequence Ventures, CSIRO Innovation Fund, Skip Capital, Blackbird Ventures, Right Click Capital, Uniseed, and the Clean Energy Innovation Fund. The company has raised a total of AS$29.2M ($23.8M) in its single "Series A" financing on May 27, 2019.
