The most versatile IoT hardware ever designed.

The Internet of Things just got easy.

LX IoT Cores are the most versatile, industrial grade hardware engine powering IoT applications from microchips to the cloud and beyond.
We have taken care of the complex stuff so you can focus on developing applications, solving problems and building product.


Remarkable Design.

LX IoT Cores is a new way of thinking.  Designing and deploying custom IoT solutions from the ground up has never been easier. We have created a hardware development engine that allows rapid customisation and configurability whilst retaining miniature form factors and commercial grade quality.  Oh and we seriously mean rapid.  LX IoT Cores allow you to switch on 50 to 100 times faster than traditional custom design.

The heart of the hardware system consists of 3 IoT Cores that can be added to, subtracted from, combined with daughter boards and sunk into new circuit boards.  LX IoT Cores have been designed by an elite team of product development professionals using advanced methodology in order to create massively miniature boards that are loaded with all the IoT features you could want for your application.


Attractively subtractive.

Tired of adding on extra shields and crusts and ending up with a kitchen sink? We see a lot of IoT prototypes that are far too big, costly and power hungry that need to be completely redesigned come production time.

With LX IoT Cores, everything you need is already on board from the start. Don’t need all the sensors? We’ll slice that section off the PCB and the rest still works. The LX IoT Cores are fundamentally different from every other board in that they are designed to be cut down smaller when you don’t need everything.


Prototype professionally.

This ain’t your Grandad’s dev kit, nor is it another Arduino or Raspberry Pi… this is the real deal. Created by an elite team of highly experienced engineers and product development designers with over 200 IoT projects already completed, LX IoT Cores allow you to easily deploy commercial grade hardware from the get-go.  Prototype like a pro from the beginning, then move straight into volume production.


Incredible power that hardly uses any.

The LX IoT Cores have been designed from the ground up with power consumption in mind with every decision.  Real world IoT applications very often rely on battery powered sensors and transmitters, operating for long periods in the field without intervention.  LX IoT Cores power your solution for years to come.

3 tiny cores.   Endless possibilities.

All the connectivity options you will ever need. Hugely optimised for low power consumption. Commercially scalable and low cost.

  • Remarkably tiny

    Starting at 12.5mm x 30mm and growing as you add functionality. Unlike stacking approaches our cores are only as big as the functionality you need.

  • Microamp power

    5uA sleep with complete power control over all subsections. Every subsection designed for low power operation. Inbuilt support for a range of battery chemistries, gas gauging and charge mechanisms including solar and inductive.

  • Ultra low unit cost

    Designed for high volume production with parts from quality suppliers while only paying for the features you need.

  • Amazingly versatile

    From carrier grade base stations, long range networks, sensors & control devices, through to trackers and wearables – there’s not much in IoT you can’t do with one of our cores.

  • Sensor agnostic

    Connect any external sensor or control device. We’ve also built in 10 of the most common sensors including 3 GPS options.

  • Connectivity covered

    Short range networks, long range networks, cell networks & home networks – it’s all possible (Bluetooth/BLE, WiFi, LoRa, SigFox, Taggle, 2G/3G, LTE, Ant+, ZigBee, XBee, 4-20mA, USB, RS485, UART, SPI, I2C).

  • Market ready

    Prototype quickly, then scale to volume production. OTA updating right out of the box. This is not a toy prototyping platform – it’s ready for commercial deployment to get to market fast.

  • Plug n Play

    No external circuitry needed. Just connect the peripherals you want directly to the core: battery, solar panel, inductive charge coil, antennas, sensors and more.

LX IoT Cores love the Internet.

The LX IoT Cores are not just about amazing hardware design.  At the end of the day, it’s all about the vertical applications, enhancing performance, solving problems and building product.

We get your IoT data to a safe place for you to use how you like. The hardware is plug and play, so you just power it up, no fussing, and then visualise your data on a configurable dashboard.

The LX Cloud backend is built to scale: we currently have thousands of devices running all over the world.  It is secure and simple to use – built by developers for developers.

Don’t have a cloud application or don’t want to write any of your own code?  Just use ours.  You can drag and drop graphs and charts, and set simple rule based alerts.

Keen to cut code and get fancy?  We’re developing a simple API for you to build with.  Join the beta list to get early access to dev kits and training material.

Beautiful, rugged enclosure solutions.

One does not simply mount a bare PCB outside and hope for the best. Although we think that our cores look awesome, we get it – you may want to wrap them in something a little more appropriate for the conditions…

From base stations, mounting brackets and industrial housings, to solar panel connectors and rubberised wearable collars, we have your application literally covered with a range of enclosures to get you up and running fast.

You are also able to design your own enclosures and ask us to massage our cores into custom form factors to optimise for industrial design where needed – we understand that most products will ultimately want their own visual design language and physical characteristics.  Call us if you want to get your design hat on and create something truly unique.

We have you covered.

LX IoT Cores are built on the shoulders of giants.

From ST Microelectronics performing the on board computing, uBlox for GPS technology and Broadcom for WiFi to Microsoft Azure and Cumulocity powering the cloud backend, to wireless protocols from the leading IoT standards – LX IoT Cores is running on trusted technology.

The world is changing very fast. Big will not beat small anymore.
It will be the fast beating the slow.
