SAN JOSE, Calif., June 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synaptics
Incorporated (Nasdaq: SYNA
), today announced that its SYN4381 Triple Combo
--the industry's first Matter-compliant SoC with integrated Wi-Fi 6/6E, Bluetooth
5.2, and 802.15.4/Thread--won the "2022 Best of Sensors" Award for Connectivity. The award was presented last night at Sensors Converge in a ceremony that honors the best technologies in the large and growing ecosystem. Synaptics' FlexSense 4-in-1 sensor fusion processor
was also recognized as a Finalist in the "Best of Sensors" Awards' for wearables.
Launched earlier this year, the Synaptics Triple Combo is the first SoC to combine: Wi-Fi 6/6E (802.11ax with extended 6 GHz operation), Bluetooth 5.2 (BT 5.2) with BLE Audio and High Accuracy Distance Measurement (HADM), and IEEE 802.15.4--with built-in support for the Thread protocol and Matter application layer. Integral to Synaptics' mission of engineering exceptional experiences, the Triple Combo--and its supporting SynFi [TM] software--simplify product development and reduce time to market. Together they accelerate the transition to seamless, secure, and scalable connectivity between devices across heterogeneous Internet of Things (IoT) networks, regardless of platform, OEM, or brand.
