Lime has a rich heritage of transceiver design and a record of challenging the established ways of doing things. Lime can point to a number of industry firsts in terms of:
- Technology — both at system and device level
- Vision — around open resources and virtualisation
- Business Model — A trusted ecosystem providing a complete solution, including manufacturing and systems integration and validation from the open source community. Largely funded from corporate sponsored crowdfunding campaigns generating pledges from over 10,000 backers.
These products offer an unprecedented level of configurability and allow system designers to create wireless communication networking equipment that can be set and reconfigured to run on any wireless communications frequency and mobile standard.
Lime’s technology has been adopted by organisations around the world for a wide range of applications from consumer communications equipment — femtocells and repeaters — to software defined radio devices for military and emergency services. Applications include comms infrastructure, disaster relief networks, M2M technology and test / verification systems.
The company is renowned internationally for its analogue, mixed-mode and RF design as well as its expertise in end-system applications. Its technology enables a single platform design to be implemented anywhere in the world, regardless of the countless local standard / frequency variants.
Lime works closely with industry partners to optimise RF and baseband solutions to ensure the ecosystem for the entire end equipment design is in place. Its partnerships help customers achieve high performance with lower device and manufacturing costs, less design resource and optimised inventory.
