Nordic Semiconductor today announces it has been nominated in both the ‘Most respected emerging public semiconductor company achieving $100 million to $500 million in annual sales’, and the ‘Outstanding EMEA semiconductor company’ categories in the Global Semiconductor Alliance’s (GSA) annual awards program.
Launched in 1996, the GSA Awards have recognized the achievements of top performing semiconductor companies across a range of categories. They are widely considered one of the most respected and prestigious awards a company can win within the global semiconductor industry. The GSA’s 400 strong membership decide the winners within the ‘Most respected emerging public semiconductor company’ category by casting votes based on the nominees’ success, vision, strategy, technology, and market leadership. Nordic previously won the award in 2016 and 2018. The ‘Outstanding EMEA semiconductor company award’ was launched in 2009, and recognizes companies headquartered in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa that have demonstrated product leadership, vision, and market success. The GSA’s EMEA Leadership Council will determine the winner.
The GSA says its global footprint represents over 30 countries and approximately 400 corporate members comprised of top companies in the semiconductor industry. Global membership ranges from emerging companies to industry stalwarts and technology leaders—representing 75 percent of industry revenues.
Recognized as the world’s leading Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) semiconductor chip company, Nordic has today evolved into a full-blown wireless Internet of Things (IoT) company able to wirelessly ‘connect anything’ be it via ultra-low power, short-range wireless technologies such as Bluetooth LE; or low-power, long-range wireless technologies such as the latest IoT-targeted version of cellular wireless technology, LTE-M and NB-IoT.
The GSA Awards winners will be announced at a gala dinner on December 5th at the Santa Clara Convention Center, California.
