Authorised distributor Mouser Electronics is now stocking the K32W148 multiprotocol wireless microcontroller (MCU) from NXP Semiconductors.

This microcontroller is a low-power, highly secure, single-chip solution that integrates a Bluetooth Low Energy 5.3 radio and an IEEE 802.15.4 radio supporting Thread, Matter, and Zigbee.

The device implements a tri-core architecture to isolate the connectivity, computing, and security capabilities. The multiprotocol radio is energy efficient, supporting full simultaneous dualPAN to facilitate Thread and Zigbee, and is developed for Wi-Fi coexistence.

The radio is reinforced with tested software stacks for Matter, Thread, Zigbee, and Bluetooth Low Energy for standalone and hosted applications to supply a range of IoT and industrial applications.

Part of the EdgeLock Assurance program, the microcontroller is designed to meet industry standards, and follows NXP's security-by-design approach. The device implements a flexible power-efficient architecture to extend battery life and reduce the energy footprint in IoT devices.

Applications for the K32W148 include Smart Home IoT, smart lighting, home gateways and bridges, and environmental, occupancy and security sensor networks.
