What are the challenges when developing a LoRaWAN device? We would like to take you on a journey through the hard- and firmware design process.

What do you have to pay attention to, what are the basic challenges? Beyond that, the question naturally arises, why develop a product at all?

The key lies in the so-called Total Cost of Ownership, many only consider the pure device costs when comparing products. However over the lifecycle, the device costs are only a small part of it. Costs for configuration, installation, the cost of battery replacement and radio performance because additional gateways may be required are additional factors.

Our experience is that a precisely tailored product significantly increases the benefit of the overall solution. In the case of battery-powered devices, the service life of the battery can be optimized through special functionalities. Many of our customers in the industrial and professional environment have the requirements that they can obtain devices in this design for 10 years or longer. With a standard product, it is usually unclear how long it will be possible to obtain it in exactly the desired version and whether the firmware will suddenly have new or different functions.

The small but powerful development crew of comtac, led in the sense of a start-up, with a 30 year experience background, is embedded in the Amalthea Group. Together with the electronics producers www.gesys.ch and www.elfab.ch we have the possibility to offer you everything from one source from the development to delivery of serial devices.
