Our and sites are dealing with electronic components and other ingredients for edge computing devices. Focus is on IoT applications (“Internet of Things”), and particularly we are looking at the design of IoT devices. Our website provides independent information and competitive product overviews – and some inspiration and guidance esp. for people specifying requirements and ingredients of an IoT project.

Key elements for a successful IoT design project are

  • Wireless networks and related operators and service providers incl. SIM management,
  • Electronic components and subsystems like modems, IoT MCUs, sensors, actuators
  • Cloud services for device management, application layer services like MQTT, data analysis + reporting, etc.
  • IoT demonstrators, network testers and mockups
  • Embedded IoT security incl. public-key infrastructures

Sites and are for design engineers or technical project managers or other electronics professionals who are exploring the semiconductor market to identify suitable candidates for their business. Typically, products reviewed here are so-called ASSPs (ASSP = application specific standard product) or multi-chip modules. In fact, this website is reviewing certain product groups from user perspective, i.e. with the eyes of an application designer. provides independent market scans, product overviews and competitive comparison. Our articles collect and consolidate public product data in an effort to support component selection process. Besides technical aspects our articles are focusing on the needs of online customers and distribution customers who rely on decent online resources and support services offered by the product manufacturer.

As of today, we offer several articles and market reviews for the following product categories:
