Wireless Microcontrollers (MCUs)
Silicon Labs wireless MCUs devices provide high-performance wireless connectivity and ultra-low power 8-bit and 32-bit microcontroller options. With support for major frequency bands in the 142 to 1050 MHz range as well as 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.15.4 devices these devices can be used to develop many classes of Internet of Things (IoT) systems.
Explore the different wireless MCU families:
NEW 32-bit EZR32™ Wireless MCUs with 142 MHz – 1050 MHz RF frequency range
The EZR32 family of devices includes highly integrated, low power wireless MCUs. The devices provide tremendous design flexibility with pin-compatible parts that scale from 64 to 256 kB of flash, include an optional USB interface, as well as various transceiver options and RF output power levels. The ultra low power operating modes and fast wake-up times of the Silicon Labs energy friendly EFM32 32-bit MCUs, combined with the low standby, transmit and receive power consumption of the sub-GHz radio, result in a wireless solution optimized for battery powered applications.
Si106x/8x 8-bit Wireless MCUs with 142 MHz – 1050 MHz RF frequency range
Silicon Labs’ Si106x/8x Wireless MCUs combine high-performance wireless connectivity and ultra-low power microcontroller processing into a small 5 mm x 6 mm form factor. Support for major frequency bands in the 142 to 1050 MHz range is provided including an integrated advanced packet handling engine and the ability to realize a link budget of up to 146 dB. All devices are designed to be compliant with the 802.15.4g smart metering standard and support worldwide regulatory standards including FCC, ETSI and ARIB.
Si4010 Remote Control on a Chip
The Si4010 RF transmitter with an integrated 8051 microcontroller is the industry’s first single-chip remote control IC requiring only one external bypass capacitor, a printed circuit board, battery and an external casing with push-buttons to form a complete remote control.
EM35xx Ember® ZigBee® devices
The EM35x, EM358x and EM359x Ember® ZigBee®chips are the industry’s leading ARM® Cortex®-M3 based family of ZigBee SoCs delivering unmatched performance, power consumption and code density in a compact package. The EM35x, EM358x and EM359x families combine a 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.15.4 radio transceiver with a 32-bit microprocessor, Flash memory and RAM with powerful hardware supported network-level debugging features.
