Silicon Labs has introduced two 2.4 GHz wireless system-on-chip (Soc) families designed for Bluetooth and multiple-protocol operations.

The semiconductors will help to bring artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) applications and wireless high performance to battery-powered devices. The BG24 and MG24 families support multiple wireless protocols and incorporate PSA Level 3 Secure Vault protection designed to work with smart home, medical and industrial applications.

The SoC families could be used to bring AI/ML to home security systems, wearable medical monitors, sensors monitoring commercial facilities and industrial equipment.

Silicon Labs said the BG24 and MG24 chips are the first devices with dedicated AI/ML accelerators built in. The hardware is designed to handle complex calculations quickly with internal testing showing up to a four times improvement in performance along with up to a six times improvement in energy efficiency.

Additionally, the SoCs have large flash and RAM capacities and the device can evolve for multi-protocol support, matter and trained ML algorithms for large datasets.
