The Internet of Things

The Internet of Things enables “things” such as machines, sensors, or household appliances to communicate with each other and with humans. By adding sensors to these products, they can collect information and exchange it with other systems.


The Internet of Things creates new possibilities. This includes various sensors that help us improve the environment by continuously measuring air or water quality, or by tracking wildlife in their natural habitats. In the medical field, the Internet of Things is used for measuring blood pressure, pacemakers, or advanced hearing aids. Additionally, in industrial settings, existing products such as streetlights, bridges, and wind turbines are being equipped with smart sensors.


LoRa stands for Long Range Radio and is a technology that enables data exchange over long distances without consuming much energy. As a result, some sensors can remain active for up to 15 years on a small energy source. LoRa is used for equipment that doesn’t need to be constantly connected but only sends data periodically. The internet speed of LoRa is limited to 0.3 to 50 kbit/s.

Printed Circuit Boards

There is no one-size-fits-all printed circuit board for the Internet of Things. It’s important to consider all environmental factors in your choice. Where will the sensor be used? Do you have a lot of space or very little? We can assist in choosing the right base material.
