BSQUARE (NASDAQ:BSQR) and Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR) (TSX:SW) have teamed together to reduce development time and cost for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) integrating Sierra Wireless embedded modules into Windows Mobile and Windows Embedded CE powered devices. Now, Sierra Wireless customers developing Windows Mobile and Windows Embedded CE powered devices have access both to Sierra Wireless professional integration services and to BSQUARE’s go-to-market radio integration service package for Sierra Wireless modules.
The BSQUARE radio integration service package includes Windows Mobile and Windows Embedded CE radio interface layer (RIL) software that has been pre-integrated, pre-tested and performance-optimized for use with the Sierra Wireless radio drivers and with the Microsoft Windows CellCore radio stack. BSQUARE will also offer a Sierra Wireless-based cellular 3G hardware option within its DevKit hardware development platform product line. The new DevKit product is targeted to ship in Q2 2008. Both the radio integration service package and the DevKit option support Sierra Wireless embedded modules for GSM and CDMA technology. Together, they can significantly reduce the development time and cost for Windows Mobile and Windows Embedded CE OEMs.
