Silicon Labs’ Wireless Xpress Bluetooth Modules, Now at Mouser, Simplify Drop-In Connectivity Upgrades

 

November 5, 2018Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the Wireless Xpress BGX13x modules from Silicon Labs. Providing a configuration-based development experience with everything engineers need to quickly develop Bluetooth® technology-based Internet of Things (IoT) applications, the Wireless Xpress BGX13x modules offer Bluetooth 5 compliance in either a system-in-package (SiP) or PCB module for a variety of IoT applications, including smart home devices, sensors, and industrial monitoring.

 

The Silicon Labs Wireless Xpress BGX13x modules, available from Mouser Electronics, enable a Bluetooth low energy cable replacement solution without requiring wireless firmware development. Using only the modules’ UART interface, the devices allow embedded systems to connect and communicate across a Bluetooth low energy link to smartphones and other BGX devices. Users can also remotely manage and update Bluetooth-enabled products over the air (OTA) using native device management features. With Silicon Labs’ Zentri Device Management Service (DMS), end users can easily install and update firmware, view real-time device health metrics, and adjust product settings through mobile apps.

Both the BGX13P PCB module and the BGX13S SiP include an on-board Bluetooth stack controlled through an Xpress command API, plus cable replacement firmware pre-programmed — all in modules that require a total PCB area of just 51 mm². Both modules also feature certifications from Bluetooth, CE, FCC, Japan, and South Korea.

 

The modules are supported by the Wireless Xpress BGX13P Starter Kit, which includes a BGX13P Expansion Board with a pre-mounted BGX13P Module. The BGX13P Expansion Board can operate in stand-alone mode with a PC via USB port or in a simulated embedded host mode with a Silicon Labs EFM8 or EFM32 Starter Kit.
