LTE-M and NB-IoT is the future. I've been watching these technologies evolve over the years, and have also been a happy Nordic customer since 2013, so selecting Nordic’s cellular IoT solution for the nRF9160 Feather was an obvious choice. If developers using the development board need support, DevZone is a great resource. One of Nordic’s engineers spent a lot of time working out an issue with me, which is surprising as most companies couldn’t care less. I look forward to working with Nordic for many more years.

What separates our oral health technology from anything currently available is the ability to continually monitor pH levels without disrupting the patient’s lifestyle, and during development Nordic as a company has been absolutely awesome. The Software Development Kit and testing applications were unexplainably helpful, and I can receive incredibly detailed responses to my questions from Nordic engineers, often in less than 24 hours. Nordic is certainly our top choice without a second thought.

What makes Nordic’s products so good is that each SoC provides an all-in-one solution. When we started designing the world’s first capacitive fuel level sensor powered by Bluetooth Low Energy, we selected the nRF52832 SoC because it offered us simple implementation, high functionality, and performance in a cost effective package. All of Nordic’s solutions are designed to make development simple. The SoftDevice is a mature, stable and proven Bluetooth LE protocol, and the SDK provides a quick and easy start to development while keeping the application and protocol software separated. The abundance of available development tools is incredibly valuable.

Apricity Ara reduces the need for peaking power plants (power plants that generally run only when there is a high demand for electricity) by connecting domestic water heaters to utilities over cellular communications. This allows utilities to remotely monitor and, during peak energy demand, reduce the standby power of heaters not in use. What we got with Nordic’s nRF9160 SiP was a highly reliable, plug-and-play cellular solution that is perfect for energy companies. Working through the development of this pioneering application with Nordic was also very rewarding. Go to Nordic’s technical team with a challenge and their eyes light up with excitement at the chance to solve it.
