SMATE is a team of electronics engineers specialized in the New Product Introduction and manufacturing of IOT products, and sourcing in China. 


We inspire, advise, guide clients and enable clients to optimize manufacturing for low cost, high reliability and high volumes, we ensure products complies with requirements for performance, certifications and "push-button" deliveries.


Our clients and partners include industry leaders in China, Thailand, and Europe, where products are distributed worldwide.


We look forward to becoming an extension of your team, please contact us for a free talk without obligations on how we can help you bring your fantastic product into production and out into the world.


Over the past 7 years, we utilize our knowledge and expertise to help clients bring prototypes into production, we help navigate through the jungle of Chinese manufacturers, optimize their design for low-cost high-quality manufacturing, lead it through global certifications.
We help make products affordable, reliable and prolong their lifetime. We offer services covering the entire NPI process and thus significantly reducing time to market.


Production maturing

The key procedure before final prototyping is design- + BOM-review, DFM and DFT. We help to suggest design optimizations and component alternatives from local suppliers to reduce cost and lead-time, as well as increase manufacturability.

Prototype manufacturing

Prototype manufacturing

Before a design can be locked and sent for certification, small series of complete sets of electronics, mechanics and packaging must be produced. The fitting between mechanics and electronics needs to be verified, the efficiency and scalability of the assembly process must be ensured. The factory's internal documentation and procedures for the specific product must be verified and the client must test and optimize the final design, e.g. antenna impedance matching.



Certification needs to be planned early in the NPI process to avoid delays and trouble during compliance testing. Take advantage of our experience and close connection to SGS in Shenzhen who provides very cost-effective and professional certification services. The key is early risk assessment and pre-testing by hourly renting of SGS’s labs.

Mass production

Mass production

Through comprehensive auditing and years of close cooperation, Smate can appoint the most suitable partner for your small or big quantity electronics production and box-build needs. Teamwork, simplistic test equipment, carefully planned pilot production, Smate on-site QA and corrective action meetings will guarantee a smooth 1st mass production round and future scalability.




Cost down

One of Smate’s forces is to enables our clients to manufacture at low cost, as well as fully conform with required certifications and the end-users’ needs.

For over 90% components in IOT industry, Smate is likely to have suppliers that save you time and cost.
For the rest 10%, we might not sure about specific costs, but a basic research, including our opinion, can conclude an indicative saving per part, and further on per batch and per year.

With absolutely the best supply chain in China and SMATE competence in this filed, you can anticipate that products can be made better, made cheaper and made faster with us.
