About

Wiresmith Technology is a software consultancy based in Newbury, UK. Founded in 2014, we focus exclusively on measurement based software for the engineering sector.

Wiresmith Technology was started by James McNally when he left National Instruments. We aim to reduce the risk and time associated with adopting new measurement technology so that we can enable innovative companies to do what they do best: improving the world for the rest of us with new products which are safer, more reliable and more efficient than ever before.

With our pedigree with their technologies, we quick became NI Alliance Partners, specialising in their data acquisition and FPGA based technology. If you’ve invested in and adopt National Instruments technologies, we ensure that you’ll achieve quality measurement and control solutions faster and more efficiently than if you were to attempt to do it yourself.

Who We Work With

We work with engineering companies of all sizes in the UK. Our past clients include:

  • National Grid (Power Quality Monitoring)
  • Lontra (Test Cell Data Acqusition) - Case Study
  • Sphere Fluidics (Prototype Development)
  • Nissan Technical Centre Europe (Testing)

We are best suited to applications where dynamic systems are involved so the automotive, mechanical and research sectors tend to benefit the most from our services.

We Have Even Won Awards

About James

Certified LabVIEW Architect
Certified LabVIEW Embedded Developer

I am an experienced LabVIEW developer and between my time at National Instruments and Wiresmith Technology, I've racked up nearly a decade's worth of experience. I am a Certified LabVIEW Architect, Certified LabVIEW Embedded Developer and LabVIEW Champion.

At National Instruments, I was heavily involved in on-site consulting, and quickly became the internal and external ‘go-to’ technical resource for embedded LabVIEW technologies, culminating in teaching advanced courses such as High Throughput FPGA.

When customer-facing, I found that users wanted a more hands-on approach to adopting these technologies. Whilst tools like LabVIEW have great set-up support and enhance the success of navigating a software-based project, the learning curve from zero to deploying a robust, embedded application can be both steep and challenging.

A considerable wealth of insight and knowledge is still required to get the best outcome: Get it right and you produce a solution that is robust and powerful. Fall short, and you can end up with a ‘solution’ that is unreliable, difficult to adapt or costly to implement.
