u‑blox, the Swiss positioning and wireless chip and module company, has acquired San Diego-based Fusion Wireless, a provider of CDMA wireless modules for consumer and M2M applications in North America.
“The acquisition of Fusion Wireless immediately gives u-blox new, cutting-edge wireless module products plus access to the huge embedded CDMA market in North America for both consumer and M2M applications.
