When Mitte was unable to obtain PCBs from its regular supplier, they began working with Newbury Electronics – who are now supplying the prototypes, PCBs, fabrication and assembly services for Mitte’s revolutionary smart water system, which replicates the natural water cycle.

The boards were initially installed in the prototype machine, which is now being used for further board testing and to verify and test the PCB design. The boards will form part of the control system, UI and sensor feedback in the water filter unit.

Fabien Bastiman, chief technology officer at Mitte, said: "We have been working with Newbury Electronics since February and the quality of both the boards and customer service has been excellent."

"Even just a few years ago we would never have imagined producing boards for inclusion in a water filter,” said Philip King, managing director of Newbury Electronics, in reference to the first-of-its-kind smart home water system (see below for more information).

“As the Internet of Things and so called 'smart' solutions continue to develop across every aspect of both work and leisure time, there are increasing opportunities for us to collaborate with companies such as Mitte to help them with the development and production of the necessary electrical components."

Mitte is a smart home water system that purifies and enhances water through a process inspired by the natural water cycle. It works in two simple steps: first, it purifies water with a proprietary distillation-based method. Then, Mitte makes the water not only pure, but also healthy by enhancing it with essential minerals. This is achieved by using mineral cartridges to replicate the process that occurs in nature when water flows through rocks – picking up minerals along the way.

This unique process adds back all the minerals and trace elements that other water purifiers remove, securing water that is not just clean, but also healthy.
