Simplify the development process with unique programming language.
In 2005, Laird created the smartBASIC programming language. Unlike original BASIC programming, smartBASIC was created on the fundamentals of being extensible, easy-to-use, and offering quicker development for embedded systems. The event based programming language has provided provides developers with the proper tools to leverage time to market. 
Learn more about smartBASIC in our latest blog post. http://ow.ly/TJHrS

Laird experts featured by industry leading publication, Design News, discussing the growing demand for thinner, lighter, hybrid board level shields that protect electronics from electromagnetic interference and heat.

With a side-by-side comparison of different solutions including aluminum, steel, and copper, the piece outlines how design engineers can maximize performance while minimizing the size of their final product by leveraging the right solution for a specific application.

Both the connected car and highway are complex RF environments. While OEMs will have a key role in developing their own value proposition of the connected car, the premise of it remains very much the same. Enabling a safer, more efficient highway system while empowering motorists through data is certainly the future of the automotive industry, but many more steps need to occur before it can be fully realized. Both the connected highway and its co...
