Everyone has an opinion when it comes to technology, but one thing we can all agree on is the importance of security. No matter the industry, it is always a top concern. Since introduced in 2004, Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) has been the primary security offered by the Wi-Fi Alliance. However, since its […]
Laird has released a new firmware package for the BL652 series of Bluetooth modules enabling alpha BLE Mesh functionality, based on Nordic’s BLE Mesh SDK (v0.10.0). With just a few development kits and our engineering BLE Mesh-capable firmware, you can begin working with BLE Mesh in minutes!
The firmware package is supported by multiple, […]
BLE is a leading technology in the growing Internet of Things (IoT). The latest specification, Bluetooth 5.0, was specifically designed with the IoT in mind, providing increased range, speed, and broadcast messaging capacity in addition to enhanced security features introduced in version 4.2 of the spec. As a result, BLE devices can now offer […]
A flaw in the WPA2 security protocol has recently been discovered. The bug, known as “KRACK” for Key Reinstallation Attack, exposes a weakness in WPA2 which is one of the most popular security protocols used to encrypt most modern Wi-Fi connections.
Laird is aware of the industry wide vulnerability impacting WPA2 security and we […]
Laird is pleased to introduce a new line of Bluetooth HCI modules for rapid enablement of Bluetooth technology into OEM devices. The new BT85x and BT860 Series of USB and UART HCI modules and adapter complement Laird’s original BT8x0 series of Dual-Mode Bluetooth v4.0 modules. These next-gen […]
