Setup in early 2013 RAKtronics is mostly me, Richard Fisher.

With my electronic and software skills along with a huge amount of experience acquired over years working for various project, product, and service orientated companies I believe I bring a unique range of skills and knowledge to your projects

Based in Northamptonshire in the UK we can develop your project right from the concept stage, through the design to building prototypes and beyond.
