MicroSHADOW Research, based in Italy, was founded in 1993 by a team of people with extensive experience in electronics design (more than ten years during company startup).
MicroSHADOW Research reserves most of its resources developing electronics systems and software for the embedded market. Its primary products include the PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) normally based on 8051 cores and, in general, products related to the automation area.
Since 1997 MicroSHADOW Research is developing and improving LadderWORK automation software.
LadderWORK is the first Ladder/FBD compiler for embedded systems and allows you to create a PLC with a simple 8051 core. Its goal is to adapt LadderWORK for many Embedded/PLC boards manufactured by different companies.
