The latest Wireless Gecko system-on-chip (SoC) families from Silicon Labs mare in stock at distributor Mouser Electronics.

These SoCs are highly energy efficient, delivering exceptional battery life for a range of Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

The Silicon Labs EFR32BG22 (BG22) SoCs are single-chip solutions that support Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, including Bluetooth Mesh, Bluetooth Low Energy, and direction-finding with sub-meter accuracy.

They are capable of extending coin cell battery life for up to ten years, making them an energy-friendly choice for consumer, commercial, and industrial IoT applications.

The SoCs are based on a high-performance Arm Cortex-M33 core and offer ultra-low transmit and receive power.

The EFR32MG22 (MG22) family devices are the smallest, lowest power SoCs optimised for Zigbee Green Power applications. Combining a 76.8MHz Arm Cortex-M33 core with a high-performance 2.4GHz radio, the MG22 SoCs can support multiple IoT protocols.

They suit Zigbee devices powered by coin cell batteries or energy-harvesting sources, including smart home sensors, lighting controls, and building and industrial automation.

The EFR32FG22 (FG22) SoCs enable energy-friendly proprietary protocol networking in power- and size-constrained IoT devices.

These single-die devices feature a 38.4MHz Arm Cortex-M33 processor and a 2.4GHz radio with a receive sensitivity of -106.4dBm.

Advanced security features and a comprehensive suite of software tools and stacks, make them suitable for applications such as building security, electronic shelf labels, industrial automation sensors, and custom modules for commercial lighting.
