SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 20, 2020 – Palma Ceia SemiDesign, a provider of next-generation wireless connectivity solutions, today announced it has entered into a sales and support representative agreement with BLRLABS of Bangalore, India. Under the terms of the agreement, BLRLABS will provide expanded sales and technical support for Palma Ceia SemiDesign’s NB-IoT products in India.
“Establishing sales and support capabilities for our customers in India is critical as we expand our global footprint,” said Roy E. Jewell, chief executive officer of Palma Ceia SemiDesign. “BLRLABS has an outstanding record of success with some of the world’s top technology customers and we look forward to a strong and long-lasting partnership between our two companies.”
BLRLABS seeks to co-create next-generation products by combining its expertise with that of its customers and technology partners.

“We are excited to bring Palma Ceia’s NB-IoT technology to India, where some of the world’s top semiconductor companies operate,” said Ravishankar Balasubramanian, chief executive officer of BLRLABS. “India welcomes these technologies as a platform to enable smart systems across the board.

Palma Ceia SemiDesign’s NB-IoT products support cellular standards targeted to support applications such as industrial IoT, smart cities, smart health and smart home — sensor and cellular connection applications which typically need to operate under battery power for 10 years or more.
The relationship with BLRLABS is the latest step in Palma Ceia SemiDesign’s global expansion. In October 2019 the company added a design team in Cambridge, United Kingdom, and previously opened facilities in Hong Kong and China. Contact information is available on the Palma Ceia SemiDesign website.
