Together, Laird’s Connectivity Solutions and recently acquired LSR offer an extensive range of embedded wireless products and innovative antenna options that help you connect and protect your wireless deployments. Our straightforward Bluetooth, Bluetooth Smart, Zigbee, and both Enterprise- and Professional-Series Wi-Fi solutions are ideal for robust data connectivity, mobile computers, medical devices, and other business-critical applications.

Some of Laird’s recent developments include Industrial Frequency Hopping modules for Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint M2M applications, as well as a new module series featuring LoRaWAN™ technology. All Laird embedded modules feature the Laird stamp of reliability and are fully supported for any issues that occur in the field.  

Complementing their wireless modules and antennas, Laird also offers wireless product development services as well as EMC testing and certification. Laird’s Products and Services are here to help, simplifying wireless technology to accelerate the development of connected IoT solutions.

Professional-Series Wi-Fi modules

Connecting your product to the internet through Wi-Fi™ integration is simplified with the use of pre-certified Professional-Grade Wi-Fi™ modules from LSR. The new Sterling-LWB 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® Smart Ready Multi-Standard Module provides your customers with more options, more certifications and a greater variety of antenna options, which altogether provides greater flexibility to meet the challenging requirements of many wireless designs. This certified module is based upon the Broadcom 4343W chipset, and supports IEEE 802.11 b/g/n, BT 2.1+EDR, and BLE 4.1 wireless connectivity. The module comes in three configurations to best address specific applications, and features an industrial temperature rating (-40° to +85° C) and an industry-leading breadth of certifications and antenna options.

Bluetooth & Bluetooth smart modules

As a world leader in short-range wireless connectivity, Laird offers the widest range of high-performance Bluetooth modules. Implementing a Bluetooth solution for your product has never been this easy. Whether you are looking for Bluetooth Classic or Bluetooth Low Energy, in need of a SoC solution, or a module to connect to an existing processor, Laird and LSR offer a Bluetooth SIG certified module to meet your needs.

Laird’s innovative BT900 series of modules reduce the engineering burden and design risk of integrating Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy into any OEM device. The BT900’s tiny form factor, optimized power schemes, and smartBASIC language provide a secure, stable Bluetooth environment for any embedded design. Let Laird's innovative BT900 series and decades of expertise in Bluetooth module design speed your product to market.

LSR’s SaBLE-x certified Bluetooth Smart module is built to deliver unmatched RF and power performance. This module can deliver over twice the signal range and can operate at nearly 1/3 the average power for a 1 second connection interval when compared to the previous generation Bluetooth low energy technology. Based on the new TI SimpleLink™ Bluetooth® Smart CC2640 wireless microcontroller (MCU), this self-contained module provides unmatched integration, including an ARM Cortex-M3 application processor, an ARM Cortex-M0 processor for the RF core, separate Sensor Processor Engine, FLASH memory, and both high- and low-speed clocks.   And the innovative Serial-to-BLE API and development tools make it simpler than ever to implement BLE connectivity with an existing microcontroller in your design.

Other wireless technologies

Laird and LSR’s unlicensed ISM band modules provide the perfect solution for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications where the need is to transmit serial data over longer distances, wirelessly, with the highest degree of reliability.

The all-new RM1xx LoRaWAN + BLE series of modules offer a powerful, convenient solution for long-range Enterprise IoT (EIoT) deployments. Laird innovatively combines Bluetooth® v4.0 with LoRaWAN™, the emerging standard in Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) into one module. RM1xx modules aggregate and transmit data from Bluetooth® Smart (BLE) devices and sensors over LoRa® to gateways as far as 15 km (~10 miles) away. This bridges the personal area network to the wide area network in a unique way. The RM1xx will be LoRa® Alliance certified and fully interoperable with any LoRaWAN™-adherent gateway.
