Mouser stocks Wireless Xpress Bluetooth modules to upgrade connectivity

Designed to quickly develop Bluetooth technology based IoT applications, Silicon Labs’ Wireless Xpress BGX13x modules are now available from distributor, Mouser.

The modules offer Bluetooth 5 compliance in either a system in package (SiP) or PCB module for smart home devices, sensors, and industrial monitoring.

The Silicon Labs Wireless Xpress BGX13x modules enable a Bluetooth low energy cable replacement 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. Silicon Labs’ Zentri Device Management Service (DMS) allows end users to easily install and update firmware, view real-time device health metrics, and adjust product settings through mobile apps.

There are two options, the BGX13P PCB module and the BGX13S SiP, both of which include an on-board Bluetooth stack controlled through an Xpress command API, plus cable replacement firmware pre-programmed. The modules require a total PCB area of just 51mm². Both have 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 standalone mode with a PC via USB port or in a simulated embedded host mode with a Silicon Labs’ EFM8 or EFM32 starter kit.
