Trident IoT, a Carlsbad, CA-based silicon provider and RF technology company focused on decreasing time-to-market for connected device manufacturers, raised $10m in funding.

The round was led by Todd Pedersen, entrepreneur and founder of Vivint and Vivint Solar, who will join the Trident IoT Board of Directors.

The company intends to use the funds to expand silicon/hardware solutions development, engineering support, and certification preparation services across the gamut of IoT and connectivity platforms, including Z-Wave, Zigbee, Thread, Matter, LoRa and more.

Led by CEO and co-founder Mike Lamb, Trident IoT offers Z-Wave silicon solutions and product design and development consulting services to simplify RF tech development, increase product success rates, and decrease time-to-market for connected device manufacturers. With an initial focus on companies manufacturing Z-Wave devices, Trident IoT seeks to expand and build new relationships through a human connection at every level, including certification and market knowledge.

Coinciding with the fundraising close, the Z-Wave Alliance approved Trident IoT as an official Z-Wave device certification testing lab on Tuesday, April 9. The company will continue to expand and diversify compliance testing and certification resources for Z-Wave and other platforms, allowing the company to offer holistic support for manufacturers bringing new IoT products to market.
