Boston, February 14, 2012 — Ambient Devices and Ember are teaming to create cost-effective and reliable In-Home Display solutions for the smart energy market.

Ember is providing its EM300 series platform to Ambient Devices to develop a new line of IHDs. Ember's ZigBee-certified Smart Energy Profile platform will be integrated into Ambient's line of in-home, smart meter energy products.

Ambient's energy products, built using Ember's ZigBee technology platform, will enable utilities and their customers to efficiently manage their energy consumption with up-to-the-moment information at a glance.

Ember's ZigBee networking systems — chips, ZigBee protocol software and tools — simplify the complexity of integrating embedded software, networking and RF for developing low-power, wireless products in the connected home, smart energy and other remote monitoring and control applications.

The EM300 Series chips from Ember are the industry's premier ARM Cortex-M3 based family of system-on-chip delivering unmatched performance, power consumption and code density in a compact package.
