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. While working in support roles he kept seeing customers that got the basics working, but software skills got in the way of reaching the full potential of the hardware or application.

Our Mission
We believe, given the right tools, that innovative scientists and engineers can improve our society in huge ways. By providing tools that get out of your way whilst providing understanding of your systems, we free you up to spend your energy being curious and creative.

NI Alliance Partners
With our pedigree with their technologies, we quickly became NI Alliance Partners, specialising in their data acquisition and FPGA based technology.

Why Wiresmith Technology?

We focus on three key areas to ensure an excellent service for all customers:

  • check
    Technical Excellence: We don't like to settle for competent.  We invest in training ourselves on the latest and greatest technologies and can pick up new concepts and ideas very quickly. This gets you a more reliable and effective solution to support your product development.
  • check
    Great Communication: We consistently get great feedback for our communication. We aim to make sure you always know what we have done, what is happening next and why.
  • check

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 and Advanced Architectures in LabVIEW.

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.
