Collaborating with chip manufacturers, Tuya harnesses its proven IoT hardware technologies and provides a suite of guidelines for designing power supply, drivers, sensors, and radio frequency (RF) as well as design compliance. You can work with these guidelines and references to ensure your hardware designs meet the product functionality and certification requirements.

Circuit design

The typical hardware circuit of an IoT product consists of the power supply circuit, RF circuit, and functionality circuit. Tuya provides reference designs of these three types of circuits to help you build IoT products and accelerate your time to market.

Power supply circuit

The power supply circuits vary depending on power supplies and circuit topologies. Tuya offers a series of reference designs in terms of the AC-DC, DC-DC, isolated, and non-isolated power supplies and circuit topologies, to help you ensure circuit reliability and usability. For more information, see Power Design.

RF circuit

The antenna circuit and power supply to the RFID chip determine the RF performance. A well-designed power supply circuit ensures a stable wireless connection in any situation. A perfect RF layout can maximize the signal transmission performance. Tuya provides a series of reference designs to meet the needs of different hardware solutions, helping you achieve excellent RF circuit performance. For more information, see Radio Frequency Design.

Functionality circuit

Given the practice of developing IoT products, Tuya provides a collection of considerations for designing functionality circuits in terms of product categories such as electrical and lighting products, sensors, and home appliances. A variety of open source hardware solutions respond to the user expectations in the IoT market. For more information, see the following documentation.

Design compliance

Electrical products should be designed and manufactured to meet the local compliance requirements or intended market and be safe for use. Tuya provides a catalog of design references to help you design for compliance and get your product certified for a specific geography. For more information, see Hardware Compliance.

Hardware test

The hardware test is aimed at detecting and solving circuit issues and assessing the overall product functionality and performance. Tuya provides considerations for performing specific test items and suggestions on troubleshooting issues.
