Laird was featured in the wrap-up publication from the anual Electronic Design Show in Las Vegas. 

The winning design was for the BT900 series Bluetooth modules. The annual ECN IMPACT Awards recognize the products and services with the greatest impact on the electronic components industry. Laird’s BT900 series of Bluetooth modules was selected because it quickly, easily and affordably provides wireless freedom to devices across a range of industries.

Laird developed a proprietary programming language for the BT900 series called smartBASIC, which allows manufacturers of medical, industrial, and commercial equipment to quickly and easily introduce wireless capabilities to their devices. This product series delivers a fully configurable balance of Radio Frequency performance, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy and power consumption making it a powerful tool for portable, power-conscious devices.

The smartBASIC language acts as a Bluetooth expert within the BT900 modules, simplifying the programming process and helping engineers and designers accelerate initial development, creation of prototypes, and mass production of end devices. This is because the smartBASIC application captures the complete end-to-end process of reading, writing, and processing data without the need for any external processor.
