BGM13S Blue Gecko Bluetooth® Mesh SiP Module

By Silicon Labs

Image of Silicon Labs' BGM13S Blue Gecko Bluetooth Mesh SiP ModuleSilicon Labs' BGM13S is a SiP module for Bluetooth 5 LE and Bluetooth Mesh connectivity built around the EFR32 Blue Gecko 13 SoC. It delivers robust RF performance, low energy consumption, full regulatory compliance certifications, MCU flexibility, and a simplified development experience, all in a tiny 6.5 mm x 6.5 mm package.

Minimizing the engineering efforts and development costs associated with adding Bluetooth connectivity to any design, the BGM13S eliminates the need for RF design experience and helps accelerate the time-to-market of products for end applications like wearables, IoT end-node devices and gateways, sports and wellness, home and building automation, beacons, industrial automation, and others.
