Silicon Labs has introduced a Wireless Xpress solution that helps developers get internet of things (IoT) applications connected and running in a short turnaround time with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.
The solution provides configuration-based development experience with certified Bluetooth 5 low energy (BLE) and Wi-Fi modules and integrated protocol stacks and tools.
Using Wireless Xpress, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi IoT products can be remotely managed and updated over the air using native device management features. Using Silicon Labs’ Zentri device management service (DMS), end users can install and update firmware, view real-time device health metrics and adjust product settings through mobile apps.
Wireless Xpress includes a mobile app SDK for Android and iOS to ease BLE and Wi-Fi connectivity to mobile applications. The technology uses Silicon Labs’ Gecko operating system as a simple-to-use IoT operating system that accelerates the development of market-ready connected products. Silicon Labs said it plans to offer additional Gecko OS-based production and solutions in the future.
