The company claims that its portfolio are the only modules in the industry to provide full stack support for multiprotocol, solutions as well as flexible package options and highly integrated device security.
Matt Saunders, vice president of IoT marketing and applications at Silicon Labs said, “Our new modules offer a simple, effective solution to the complex problem of RF engineering and testing, allowing IoT device makers to quickly get pre-certified and secure wireless devices into the market.”
The highly integrated modules offer a variety of package options including SiP and traditional PCB. SiP modules integrate miniaturized components to remove complicated RF design and certification. The PCB modules allow flexible pin access and additional options that allow greater RF performance.
The new modules include xGM210PB, BGM220, MGM220, and BGX220 Xpress:
xGM210PB offers Secure Vault, ARM’s PSA Level 2 certified IoT device security and dynamic multiprotocol support for Bluetooth, Zigbee, and OpenThread with Wi-Fi coexistence. xGM210PB modules feature up to +20dBM output power and better than -104dBm sensitivity.
BGM220 is a tiny Bluetooth module that supports Bluetooth Direction Finding. The integrated, pre-certified Bluetooth 5.2 module can provide up to ten-year operation on a coin cell battery.
MGM220 is a low-power, low-cost module that is ideal for Zigbee Green Power and energy harvesting applications.
BGX220 Xpress has an onboard Bluetooth stack, Xpress command interface and pre-programmed cable replacement firmware that supplies a serial to Bluetooth LE solution that requires no firmware development.
The modules are supported in the free Silicon Labs Simplicity Studio 5, an IDE that has comprehensive software stacks, application demos and mobile apps, along with premium features, such as network analyzer and patented energy profiler. Customers can also quicken development by using simple APIs from Silicon Labs Xpress modules.
