Tiny Bluetooth low energy module

15 November 2017 Electronics Technology

Silicon Labs introduced what was the industry’s smallest Bluetooth low energy system-in-package (SiP) module with a built-in chip antenna. Available in a tiny 6,5 x 6,5 mm package, the BGM12x Blue Gecko SiP module enables developers to miniaturise IoT designs by minimising the PCB footprint including the antenna clearance area to 51 mm2. Applications include sports and fitness wearables, smartwatches, personal medical devices, wireless sensor nodes and other space-constrained connected devices.

Based on Silicon Labs’ Blue Gecko wireless SoC, the BGM12x module provides an all-in-one Bluetooth connectivity solution featuring an ARM Cortex-M4 processor, high-output Bluetooth power amplifier, high-efficiency onboard antenna, external antenna options, oscillators and passives, along with a reliable, secure Bluetooth 4.2 stack and best-in-class development tools.

BGM12x modules are available with different transmit output power options, from 3 dBm (BGM123) to 8 dBm (BGM121), to support connected device applications with varying range requirements.
