The LPWAN game changer – 1 Euro per SIM card and year

1 Euro per SIM and year

The Germans are the masters of long words and long sentences with the verb at the end (frustrating simultaneous translators the world over). German datasheets are 30% longer, or in a font size so small they are hard to read.  But, Germans are capable of short stories as well. To cut a long story short, […]

NB-IoT shields with Arduino header plus consulting, service and antenna design in support with a value of Euro 10000+ to win

Today the bunny will jump out of the heat. Next week at the embedded world you have a chance to win a Gold, Silver, Bronze and Student kit. The Student kit has a higher value than the Bronze kit. Students are our future. All kits together have a value of mare than Euro 10000. The […]

GSM GPS Bluetooth module as a glance

New GSM / GPS / Bluetooth module adapter for STM32 Nucleo, Arduino, Intel Galileo plus compatible PCBs Your ideas? Your wishes? Your recommendation? Your advice? I will listen to you. Before I started to write the IoT / M2M Cookbook I asked business friends what they would like to pay for such a book. A […]

Which embedded LTE antenna to select for your LTE module?

LTE chip antenna - SMT

Embedded LTE antenna consideration Choosing the right integrated LTE antenna is not easy. The large number of LTE bands makes the construction of integrated LTE antennas more complex. All that glitters is not gold. You have to look closely at the data sheet of the LTE antenna. The lowest LTE frequency is 698 MHz. The […]

Low ESR capacitors for GSM application – The good, the bad and the ugly

Be aware that a GSM module will charge up to 2 Ampere peak current during 2 Watt TX power Take care that your power supply will be able to drive the current peaks. Have a look on  short PCB tracks in right width. And have a very close look on a capacitor with low impedance […]
