How Satech Beacon come

Not all PCB & PCBA manufacturers are qualified to build up a business group of BLE beacon if they have no any experience in the field especially if they have no special team to develop the casings and firmware, etc., likewise, not all BLE beacon suppliers are able to finish all the production steps in their own factory especially if they can not build up a professional line for PCB fabrication and assembly. SATECHBeacon can come true because SATECH LTD is both a professional PCB & PCBA manufacturer and a technical BLE beacon developer. Let’s view together how our SATECHBeacon tags come.

How Satech Beacon Come

SATECHBeacon Firmware & App Design

A qualified software team focus on designing and optimizing the firmware and configuration App branded by SATECHBeacon. Except for the original iOS firmware for iBeacon and original Google firmware for Eddystone, the team have developed the exclusive SATECHBeacon firmware (iOS+Google compatible protocol) for iBeacon + Eddystone.

PCB design

This is a conversant job for us as a PCB & PCBA manufacturer, especially after we had rich experience in cooperating to produce and sell BLE beacon with some brand suppliers. Besides, the conversant PCB design team is better to work for any ODM service for any BLE beacon brand or order.

Component Sourcing

With 10+ years experience in the PCB & PCBA field, we have developed strong and stable associations with the vast majority of electronic component manufacturers and sourcing channels, e.g. Avnet, Digi-Key, Newark, Samtec, Mouser Electronics and of course including Nordic. nRF51822 and nRF52832 from Nordic are the key IC for our SATECHBeacon tags.

PCB Fabrication & PCBA

All the PCB fabrication and PCB Assembly of SATECHBeacon tags are produced and quality controlled by ourselves. After finishing the PCB fabrication and assembly, a series of technical testings on the PCBs and PCBAs are also done and supervised by ourselves. This is an important step for any beacon quality.

Patent Housing Design

All the housings of SATECHBeacon tags are self-designed and then patented. Besides, in the process of designing, we have considered how to facilitate the better combination between the aesthetics and performance, for example, we always considered better waterproof level, better material hand-feel and easier dis-assembly for changing battery.

Housing Manufacturing & Assembly

The NRE cost for moulding each housing always comes first as long as the beacon housing is patented, but we don’t stint this because the moulding is exclusive and belongs to SATECHBeacon forever. By the way, we can have more economical cost to customize yourself-designed housings. Housing assembly is easy in our lines.

Firmware Programming

Self-developed programming tool is more efficient to flash our firmware to SATECHBeacon tags in bulk after finishing PCBA. By the way, we are also glad to help you flash yourself-developed firmware to our beacons after checking the possibility.

Technical Testing

After PCB & housing assembly and firmware programming, our team always step by step come to make some strict technical testings including the function testing on each finished beacon. Before packaging, no any reject ratio is tolerable.

Beacon Lebeling

Each beacon is always labeled by its MAC code with a paper sticker so that it can be identified when being scanned. This is not an easy job. After technical testing, we have to read out the MAC code and  label it one by one.

Packaging

After checking and assorting all the necessaries (e.g. 3M sticker even some screws), each beacon is packaged into its customized packing box and then carton. Each packing box and carton is secure enough for delivery.
