Silicon Labs’ BGM220 offers integrated, scalable connectivity solution

- Advertisment -

The BGM220 modules from Silicon Labs’ provide developers with a highly integrated, scalable connectivity solution supporting the Bluetooth 5.2 specification, Bluetooth mesh 1.0, angle-of-arrival (AoA), and angle-of-departure (AoD).

Based on Silicon Labs’ secure, ultra-low-power wireless Gecko series 2 platform, the BGM220S and BGM220P modules support Bluetooth direction finding and deliver up to a ten-year battery life on a single coin cell.

At just 6 mm x 6 mm, the BGM220S provides an ultra-compact, low-cost, long battery life SiP module that adds turnkey Bluetooth connectivity to extremely small products.

To complement it, the BGM220P is a slightly larger variant optimised for wireless performance and offers a better link budget for greater range.

The family of Bluetooth SiP and PCB modules delivers the right combination of security features, processing power, wireless performance and software to meet the market demand for high-volume, battery powered IoT products.

About the BGM220P module

The BGM220P is a module designed and built to meet the performance, security and reliability requirements of battery powered IoT products running on Bluetooth networks. Based on the EFR32BG22 SoC, the BGM220P enables Bluetooth® low energy connectivity while delivering best-in-class RF range and performance, future-proof capability for feature and OTA firmware updates, enhanced security features and low energy consumption.

BGM220P modules are a full solution, coming with fully-upgradeable, robust software stacks, world-wide regulatory certifications, advanced development and debugging tools, and support that will minimise and simplify the engineering and development of your end-products, helping to accelerate their time-to-market.

The BGM220P is intended for a broad range of applications, including:

  • Asset tags and beacons
  • Sports, fitness, and wellness devices
  • Portable medical devices
  • Connected home devices
  • Industrial and building automation
  • Bluetooth mesh low power node
