October 30, 2020 Perry Cohen

Silicon Labs has expanded its portfolio of pre-certified wireless modules for IoT application development.

The expansion is compiled of four new modules including the xGM210PB, BGM220, MGM220, and BGX220 Xpress.

The xGM210PB features Secure Vault, the ARM PSA Level 2 certified state-of-the-art IoT device security, as well as dynamic multiprotocol support for Bluetooth, Zigbee, and OpenThread with robust, and supports Wi-Fi coexistence. Further, it offers up to +20dBM output power and more than -104dBm sensitivity.

The BGM220 integrates a pre-certified Bluetooth 5.2 module that allows for ten years of operation on a coin cell batter.

Silicon Labs’ MGM220 are ideal for IoT products that include lighting controls, building, and industrial automation sensors. More specifically, the Zigbee Green Power and energy harvesting applications.

As for the BGX220 Xpress, it includes an onboard Bluetooth stack, Xpress command interface and pre-programmed cable replacement firmware to deliver a serial to Bluetooth LE solution without the need for firmware development. 

All modules are supported in the free Silicon Labs Simplicity Studio 5, a fully integrated development environment, featuring comprehensive software stacks, application demos, and mobile apps.
