Silicon Labs offers a full range of best-in-class power, size, and security solutions for Bluetooth low energy with superior RF performance. The latest news is that the company has expanded its portfolio of industry-leading RF performance Bluetooth Low Energy solutions. Delivering unmatched performance and flexibility for IoT devices, the lately introduced BGM220S is an ultra-compact (6x6 mm), low-cost, long battery life SiP module that adds turnkey Bluetooth connectivity to extremely small products.
Along with this, the company has also introduced BGM220P which is a slightly larger PCB variant that’s optimized for wireless performance along with a better link budget for greater range. Both the modules support Bluetooth Direction Finding and deliver up to ten-year battery life from a single coin cell. The modules promise to meet the performance, security, and reliability requirements of battery-powered IoT products running on Bluetooth networks.
Both BGM220S and BGM220P are based on the EFR32BG22 System-On-Chip (SoC) and enable Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connectivity. The BGM220P and 220S Modules come with fully-upgradeable, robust software stacks, world-wide regulatory certifications, advanced development, and debugging tools. Besides delivering the best RF range and performance, the modules come with future-proof capability for a feature and OTA firmware updates with enhanced security features. The optimized Bluetooth Low Energy modules including EFR32BG22 SoCs are currently available for purchase.
