Earlier this year Laird announced its Enterprise Internet of Things (EIoT) RM1xx module series, the first commercially available solution to integrate both LoRa™ and Bluetooth® Smart (BLE) connectivity into one module. Combining Bluetooth® v4.0 with LoRaWAN™, the emerging standard in Low Power Wide Area Networks, allows for longer-range EIoT systems. The RM1xx aggregates and transmits data from Bluetooth® […]
When designing an RF system that operates at a high frequency such as the 5 GHz band, it is necessary to take parasitic effects into consideration. It is important to understand from where the parasitic effects are coming. When designing the PCB layout, you must consider landing pad size in order to reduce junction effects, […]
On August 30th LSR, a Laird Business, hosted their latest installment in the Designing for Success webinar series titled, “The Engineer’s Approach to Antenna Selection and Implementation“. Design experts Jay Gillette, Senior RF and Antenna Engineer and Carl Turner, RF Engineer walked through a number of practical tips and best practices to keep […]
It’s Flashback Friday, and today we’re swinging back to a guest blog post from Laird’s Dave Burleton, which was featured on Texas Instruments’ ConnecTIng Wirelessly blog last year.
Driven by wireless technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT) has quickly become one of the fastest growing and exciting technology sectors today. Product developers are more innovative than […]
The evolving Connected Medical industry is shaping the future of healthcare for both patients and healthcare professionals. Hospitals are seeing more admissions than ever, and with an aging population across much of the globe, hospital administrators are realizing the need to create models of healthcare deployment that are reliable, economic, scalable, secure, and efficient.
In a short time, the Internet of Things (IoT) has grown from a vision of the future to a realized sector of the tech industry. Thousands of established organizations have or are working to develop IoT connected devices. Gartner, Inc. estimates that this year, 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide, with […]
With the rapid and global growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the last few years, companies are embracing the potential of internet connected devices in order to spur innovation, improve performance, and generate growth and profits for their organization. Recently, Mike Roberts of LS Research, a Laird Business, and Gary Les of Huron […]
The Enterprise Internet of Things (EIoT) has become a massive network of connected devices and sensors that continues to take shape as new technologies bring connectivity to unprecedented applications. However, to reach its full potential an infrastructure must be in place that will enable the longest reach at the lowest power for a wide variety […]
The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the fastest growing sectors of the tech industry. In a short time, expectations from emerging IoT deployments have skyrocketed, and the world is now seeing an onslaught of new products from companies looking to capitalize on the rapid IoT adoption. Bluetooth® Smart (often referred to as BLE) […]
Much of the success or failure of a wireless product depends on the performance of the antenna. Too often, the antenna tends to be an afterthought and is added on towards the end of the design phase. While RF Design can be a challenge, following best practices and carefully considering which antenna type is best […]
