We’re excited to introduce the next generation of our Wireless Gecko platform, Series 2, which has been engineered to make IoT products more reliable, efficient, and powerful.
Developing IoT applications comes with its own set of challenges, including significant storage, power, battery life, and cost constraints. Building on the versatility of the Gecko platform, Series 2 is optimized for the most popular IoT protocols, including Zigbee, Thread, Bluetooth, Z-Wave, and Wi-Fi. It features high-performance wireless radios that deliver up to 2.5X the wireless range of competing solutions and includes a dedicated security core.
RF communications are also more dependable and energy efficient due to the highly integrated SoC options and feature-rich wireless stacks. Developers are able to optimize system cost and performance with Series 2 for a wide range of smart home, commercial and industrial IoT applications.
Developers are increasingly searching for flexible solutions to meet the demands of diverse IoT devices, and Series 2 provides a much-needed path forward for developers to bring differentiated products to market faster while reducing cost and overall design complexity.
Supporting Zigbee, Thread, Bluetooth LE and Bluetooth mesh, the initial Series 2 SoCs are the ideal wireless solution for line-powered IoT gateways, hubs, lights, smart speakers, and smart electric meters.
Key features include:
