The Guppy LoRaWAN

This is the first small scale Guppy production run - hot out of the oven.

The Guppy is a LoRaWAN tag. It has a LoRa radio, accelerometer, runs on 2x replaceable AAA's, and has an IP67 housing. No GPS in this product. We've made 868 and 915 MHz variants, so it should work all over the world.

Here is the Product Page.

And here is a discussion on what to do with the Guppy LoRaWAN.

Now we wait to receive the PCB's from the factory, test them, and assemble them. Sounds easy!
A partially populated PCB panel.
The best view of the pick and place machine I could get - video not working yet...
This is how solder paste is applied to the PCB. A stencil and a big scraper.


Another view. Look closely and you can see the detail in the stencil.
