SIG Company Board Members
The work of the Weightless SIG is performed by Core Members who work within sub-groups and regularly meet for Plenary Meetings. The Weightless SIG is managed and run by the Board of the SIG, which comprises Promoter Group Members. Promoter Group Members are companies that have agreed to devote significant time and funding to the organisation.
There are currently four Promoter Group Members: ARM, Cable & Wireless Communications, CSR and Neul.
ARM designs the technology that is at the heart of advanced digital products, from wireless, networking and consumer entertainment solutions to imaging, automotive, security and storage devices. ARM’s comprehensive product offering includes RISC microprocessors, graphics processors, video engines, enabling software, cell libraries, embedded memories, high-speed connectivity products, peripherals and development tools. Combined with comprehensive design services, training, support and maintenance, and the company’s broad Partner community, they provide a total system solution that offers a fast, reliable path to market for leading electronics companies.
Cable & Wireless Communications is a global full-service communications business. We operate leading communications businesses offering mobile, broadband and domestic and international fixed line services in most of our markets as well as pay TV, data centre and hosting, carrier and managed service solutions. Our operations are focused on providing our customers - consumers, businesses, governments - with world-class service. We are the market leader in most products we offer and territories we serve.
CSR is a global provider of innovative silicon and software solutions for the location-aware, media-rich, cloud-connected world.

CSR's technology solutions and market platforms enable its customers to deliver a superior user experience and are adopted by leaders in the auto, computer, home and mobile markets.
We connect devices using our innovative NeulNET™ cellular technology. We pioneered the Weightless™ open-standard and use license-exempt and licensed spectrum below 1 GHz, on both fixed and dynamic spectrum access (DSA). Weightless™ is so light that small batteries last for years, it is so well-designed it will operate non-line of sight for up to 10km from NeulNET™ base stations, it is so penetrating that even devices deep indoors can communicate with the network and it’s so simple to use that terminals do not need a SIM card or even any mobile network operator contract. Instead, they just need switching on and linking to a NeulNET™ network.
Neul provides the integrated base stations for NeulNET™ networks and delivers the entire network management service, authentication and API’s to your cloud based application as a service. At the device end, we supply terminals for both outdoor and indoor use which can be simply integrated in the field, they need no SIM and they find our base stations themselves. To allow easy integration of our technology into sensors, meters and industrial machines and even home appliances we also develop small footprint modules together with the software development kits needed to allow rapid product realisation. We will even provide licenses to our chip that implements the Weightless™ standard to semiconductor partners and module vendors.
