COMPANY PROFILE

EchoRing™ is a software that turns standard radio chips into real-time wireless communication systems. With EchoRing™ new application scenarios, including wireless safety human-machine interfaces (HMIs), wireless safety communication for automated guided vehicles (AGVs), drones, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and even wireless harnesses for aircraft are possible. The EchoRing™ software runs directly on the silicone and can, thus, be also described as a radio-frequency (RF) chip firmware. EchoRing™ has 7 international patent families. At the moment, we are in close cooperation with Texas Instruments, who granted us access to the source code of the WiLink™ 8 RF chip family. EchoRing™ easily integrates with existing industrial communication protocols such as PROFINET, PROFIsafe, Industrial Ethernet, or even (unsynchronised) EtherCAT.

Some competitive advantages of EchoRing™ are:
• It is cost-effective
• It can be based on different wireless standards, such as WiFi, but also Bluetooth or 5G
• It features high data rates
• It is ultra-reliable with low-latencies. The product family of radio boards using EchoRing™ includes: EchoRing™ Radio Board Mini-
Hardware developed by Clarinox
• Liebherr Telematics Unit featuring EchoRing™
