With dimensions of 2.3 x 2.6 mm, the EFR32xG27 Wireless Gecko family of SoCs is the smallest, low power SoC that enables secure, energy-friendly multiprotocol wireless networking for IoT devices such as wearables and portable medical devices. xG27 features 2/3rd higher output power for Bluetooth LE on 1/3rd of footprint compared to its predecessor, Silicon Labs xG22. The integrated DCDC Boost on xG27 allows IoT device makers to address wide voltage range, enabling the use of single cell alkaline and button cells. The integrated Coulomb Counter enables accurate battery level monitoring to avoid depletion during use of critical health applications.
Amazon and Silicon Labs introduced the first complete, end to end certified development platform for Amazon Sidewalk. Amazon Sidewalk is a shared low-bandwidth network that helps smart home devices work better at home and beyond the front door via Sidewalk Bridge devices.
FG25 is the new flagship SoC for Wi-SUN, which is one of the world’s first open protocols for smart city and smart utility applications. By providing flexibility and versatility for large-scale IoT wireless communication networks, Wi-SUN is designed to make major community infrastructure scalable, safer, more efficient, and sustainable. EFF01 is the FG25’s corresponding front-end module that boosts the FG25’s signal range by 2x when used together.
On this episode of Embedded Insiders, Brandon and Associate Editor, Taryn Engmark, speak with Abhijit Grewal, Director of Marketing Smart Cities Business at Silicon Labs, about the company’s new flagship sub-Ghz SoC, the FG25. Designed for long-range, low-power transmissions in Smart City IoT applications, the SoC is the first in Silicon Labs’ portfolio to support orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) modulations.
In Deloitte's "2022 Connectivity and Mobile Trends Survey", they concluded that an average of 22 connected devices for every US household. With the extension of market production, the number of connected devices are growing, leading to improvements with cloud connectivity.
Here at Embedded Computing Design, we spend a lot of time helping engineers/developers work through the pains of industrial designs.
Matt Johnson was appointed President and CEO of Silicon Labs earlier this year.
