Bluetooth® Smart is a hot ticket in the world of IoT development. Hop straight into the fast lane for developing new solutions with Silicon Labs’ new BGM111 Module. The BGM111 Module super-charges your development with best-in-class integration, flexibility, energy-efficiency and tool-chain support. And when you get to the point where you want to use a System-on-a-Chip (SoC) instead of a module? You’ve got the advantage of an easy upgrade path that makes big headaches into routine changes.
About that Bluetooth Smart pre-certification--the BGM111 Module comes pre-loaded with a compliant Bluegiga Bluetooth 4.1 software stack and profiles, with field-upgradable capability to Bluetooth 4.2 and beyond. Why build your own software stacks and put them through Bluetooth certification when you can let us do it for you?
In fact, Silicon Labs’ wireless SDK gives you the flexibility to use either a host or fully standalone operations through our easy-to-use Bluegiga BGScript™ scripting language. If you are familiar with BASIC-like syntax, you’re good to go with BGScript, and you’ll be creating Bluetooth applications quickly and without using external MCUs to run the application logic. If you’re thinking that doing all the code execution on the module will reduce your cost and board space while speeding time to market, you’d be right. What’s more, Silicon Labs provides an extensive library of application profiles and examples.
