Build Your Solution Around the NanoTag

Hybrid Printed Manufacturing

NanoTags are manufactured with an innovative hybrid printing process. Developed and patented by NanoThings, hybrid printing is a manufacturing process that enables 10X the scalability of traditional electronics manufacturing. Key components, like the antenna and connective circuitry, are printed on a flexible substrate to reduce size and cost while enabling mechanical flexibility. Non printable components, like the silicon and an ultra thin flexible battery, are surface mounted after the printing process.
The result is a device with a significantly smaller form factor, carbon footprint, and cost to produce.

LoRaWAN Ready

The NanoTag has been extensively tested and commercially deployed across LoRaWAN in North America, Europe, and Asia. For North America, the NanoTag also comes FCC certified*.

*Any changes to the antenna, chip, or any other RF components of the NanoTag may void FCC certification.


Buttons add cost and user confusion. Users are 90% more likely to configure a device incorrectly when buttons are present.

Activation Tab

The activation tab has a dual purpose. First and foremost, removing the activation tab activates the NanoTag. Secondly, the activation tab can be attached to paperwork as proof of use.

Flexible Substrate

100 micron thick PET film provides mechanical flexibility without compromising tensile strength or durability.
