While originally designed for low data-rate applications, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) has evolved to provide increasingly higher speeds. Since its introduction in 2010, incremental iterations of the spec have increased the maximum data packet length and added a new modulation scheme to enhance the practical data-rates. As a result, […]
The EU published the new Radio Equipment Directive (RED) or RED 2014/53/EU on April 16, 2014 as part of an effort to implement the EU’s New Legislative Framework (NLF), which hopes to harmonize and simplify the CE marking process across many directives. RED requires device manufacturers of applicable wireless products to transition from the […]
Laird recently released two updates that provide new features for the RM1xx and smartBASIC series of modules.
