Electric Mobility & Traction

From ground-up eBike development to high performance electric race vehicles, our team has a passion for electric vehicles. We’ve engineered bespoke battery packs, custom motor controllers, and patent pending torque sensing technology. If your product has wheels we will make sure it gets to where it’s going.

Battery Cell Selection

The Glassboard team has experience with numerical modeling, as well as selecting and testing lithium batteries in all shapes, sizes, and chemistries. We’ve worked with everything from 18650s to large format automotive cells.

Battery Management Systems

Once the right cell is selected, our team can design your battery pack and battery management system to fit your application. Whether it’s high power output or tight mechanical constraints, we’ve got you covered.

Motor Controllers

Let the Glassboard team leverage our innovative sensored or sensorless FOC algorithms to meet your custom motor controller needs. We have experience designing and testing motor controllers from 12V up to over 400V.

IoT Internet of Things design custom PCB electronics product development hardware

Internet of (Things)

At Glassboard we’re the things people in an ocean of internet of. Leverage our experience in connected electronics to get you from buzzword to storefront in record time. We live and breathe wireless connectivity, cutting edge sensor technology, and the latest low power performance.

  • Asset Trackers

    Lots of companies provide generic GPS wireless connected solution these days. At Glassboard we optimize every aspect of the asset tracking product to meet your companies individual needs and budgetary constraints.

    When it comes to wireless connectivity, our agnostic approach lets us choose the best technology option for our clients. We have experience with LoRa, RPMA, LTE Cat-M1, WiFi, and Bluetooth wireless technologies.

    Glassboard makes state-of-the-art asset tracking technology work for you.

  • Connected Sensors

    Whether monitoring machinery on a factory floor or taking soil pH readings in a corn field our team has the skills you need to make your next connected sensor project a success.

    Glassboard’s expertise in battery technology and low power optimization help us get the most out of battery powered connected sensors. This, coupled with our experience designing hardware for use in rugged and hostile environments means you can sleep well knowing your sensor won’t fail out in the field or at the mountain top.

  • Smart Cities

    From security to energy saving technologies, M2M solutions to expanding connectivity and everything in between, Glassboard is able to support developers, municipalities and businesses with the latest connected sensors and data analytics tools.
