About Altair

Altair Semiconductor is the leading provider of single-mode LTE solutions, playing a pivotal role in realizing the vision of the Internet of Things (IoT).

By offering LTE-only semiconductor solutions, unhampered by the high cost of 3G silicon, bill-of-materials and patent royalties, Altair has created disruption in the ecosystem, and enabled the deployment of millions of 4G-connected consumer devices at price points previously thought impossible.

As the IoT expands beyond consumer devices to include all types of connected “things,” from wearables to smart homes, cities, cars, utilities and more, Altair’s comprehensive portfolio of high performance, ultra-low-power silicon solutions enable these connections.

Established in 2005 by former Texas Instruments executives with extensive broadband and wireless silicon experience, Altair is the world’s leading supplier of 100% LTE chipsets, having shipped millions to customers around the world.

Altair’s products are qualified by the world’s leading LTE carriers, and have been adopted by tens of OEM/ODM device makers as their LTE solution to power millions of devices, including tablets, netbooks, Chromebooks, mobile hotspots, USB dongles, routers and M2M applications.
