Developer project by ASID

02 May 2017

ASID become a member of the IQRF Alliance. Currently, it deals with the first phase of the large-scale KRD project, in which the construction of intelligent buildings with an area of more than 70,000 square meters will take place in Bratislava.

This is an important opportunity for members of the IQRF Alliance to participate in the implementation of this project. They can bring their solutions and products from the areas of smart heating, lighting, parking, security or automation. You will be able to get in touch with ASID's projects and IQRF Alliance's technology partners personally at the IQRF Summit 2017 (www.iqrf.org/summit2017).

ASID was founded in 2005 as an advertising agency. Gradually expanded its operations with investment development and has dozens of successfully completed projects. In 2013, the company acquired significant contract together with a new partner – a self-government that is a guarantee of clear trading. Construction contracts of rental housing dwellings were signed, funded by the State Housing Development Fund and subsidy of MVDaRR. Demand for rental flats is still growing.

The company has experience in the field of development and construction of residential buildings both in Slovakia and abroad. It builds extensive facilities and infrastructure, housing construction and construction of administrative buildings. It tries to be a leader in development, construction and real estate.

Buildings should meet the green standard (LEED, BREEAM). BREEAM and LEED are systems that evaluate buildings in terms of their overall sustainability in several categories - for example, what energy efficiency a building has, how it contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, how much the building is a guarantee of health and well-being, what is land management, how the building pollutes environment or how it handles with waste.

IQRF Alliance exhibited at the Urbis 2017 trade fair

02 May 2017

The Urbis 2017 trade fair took place in Brno, Czech Republic, from April 26 to 29. A clever solutions were introduced at the site, including the IQRF Alliance, which featured the equipment and solutions of its members. The offer of the exhibitors extended the professional accompanying program, which included the presentation of Šimon Chudoba "Innovative solutions built on the IQRF network".

Together with the Urbis trade fair, the construction trade fair also took place, showing the latest technology and trends in the construction industry, and it turned out that the IoT solution also penetrated this sector. More and more companies have been interested in expanding their smart device solutions to collect data from a wide range of sensors, and be able to remotely control them.

In addition to professionals from the industry and the professional public, representatives of cities and towns were also interested in smart solutions at the trade fair. The theme of smart cities has repeatedly appeared throughout the fair. Of course, the IQRF Alliance could offer a very large ecosystem consisting of alliance members' products and running projects in the field of parking systems, public lighting, or air quality measurement.

The partners of IQRF Alliance joint stand were companies Protronix and Aledo. Thanks to the membership in the IQRF Alliance, both companies have been given the opportunity to promote their products at very low cost. Protronix was able to capture the attention of visitors with its air quality sensors, as many construction companies are currently considering to use air quality monitoring systems. The system of interior localization of people and objects and their monitoring of Aledo has also found many people interested in implementing a similar solution in production halls and warehouses.

We believe that the Urbis 2017 trade fair has allowed us to broaden our awareness of the IQRF wireless technology and the IQRF Alliance and its members.

TR-5xB and TR-5xD series are going to be discontinued soon

21 April 2017

Due to discontinuation of key component MRF49XA (RF IC by Microchip), all TR-5xB and TR-5xD series are going to be discontinued soon. Recommended replacement: TR-7xD series.

"Dear Customers,

Thank you for understanding that we have to bring the news on such a short notice but we have to inform you that all of our modules in TR-5xDx and TR-5xBx line as well as all related products based on those modules are going to be discontinued very soon. As much as it was planned and discussed many times, the main reason for the decision is the discontinuation of the main components (namely MRF49XA from Microchip) for the modules, which only sped up the process and is the main reason why we have to make such a decision now.

We want to assure you that we are doing all we can to secure the stock and deliveries of the modules for all your orders that will be placed no later than 5th May 2017.

If it is however inevitable for you to start migrating from TR-5xDx or TR-5xBx to DCTR-7x modules (which as you know bring many advantages and better features together with security tools coming with OS 4.0 and all working with the same development tools) we are ready to support you with the process:

We give all our support to migration TR-5xDx and TR-5xBx to DCTR-7x . Our FAEs and support teams are ready to give maximum effort. You will get the same pricing conditions (SPA) for DCTR-7xDx as they had for (DC)TR-5xDx or TR-5xBx as initial support we offer 20 pcs. of DCTR-7x modules for very special price 5Eur/pc to all our customers forced to migrate.

We are sure that the whole process as much as sudden and difficult, especially at the transition phase, will only bring in time benefits to you. Once more we would like to thank for your understanding.

Should you have any questions or requests, do not hesitate to contact us."

Yours Microrisc team

SIGFOX and IQRF – partners not only in logistics

11 April 2017

Imagine a global network to transfer small data, for example to obtain basic information about your delivery. You can see where it is and in what condition. Upon arrival to your destination you collect detailed data from individual parts and communicate with these parts as needed. Wireless technologies SIGFOX and IQRF are for this use case perfect.

Long-distance transport can carry components that are sensitive to fluctuations in temperature, humidity or impact of other phenomena. The values measured during the journey and information about the movement of your shipment pass through SIGFOX to headquarters. You do not need to solve problems with roaming, SIGFOX is one network. Upon arrival to your destination you connect to the IQRF network and collect detailed status information from various parts of the consignment. You easily find which part is fine and where recommended maximum / minimum values of the environment were exceeded. You can signal in different parts of the supply needed information to help with the subsequent logistics.

Interconnection of these two technologies is not a problem. RCD Radiokomunikace company demonstrated its solution based on interconnection of IoT technologies -

IQRF and SIGFOX - at Amper 2017. The module IOT 301 / IQRF is a part of a modular IOT system, which is a universal hardware platform for IoT devices. 

Long-distance transport is not the only case where connection of these two technologies is functional and desirable.

Other use case may be automated buildings, where sensory values are measured and in case of exceeding the recommended value messages are sent outside the building into the headquarters.

Thanks to the IQRF wireless network is the coverage reliable. Even in the environment problematic for propagation of the wireless signal you can collect data from devices. It can be temperature, humidity, lighting intensity, gas or chemicals or other values. In most cases if the measured values do not deviate from the expected limits – there is no need to send this information outside the building further into the world. Values may be stored on a local server for further processing and analysis. But if there is a situation deviating from the allowed values (e.g. temperature increase in some rooms above the expected boundary, value from CO sensors exceeds dangerous level of carbon monoxide, unscheduled room lighting appears, etc.), then you can pass this alarming information over the SIGFOX network to the Internet.

SIGFOX network can also provide backup Internet connection in case of failure of the main Internet connection line providing two-way high-speed operation.
