Blue Gecko BGM13P Bluetooth® Module

Simplifying Bluetooth 5 and Bluetooth Mesh Development

The Silicon Labs' Blue Gecko BGM13P Bluetooth module integrates our EFR32BG13 wireless SoC with a complete Bluetooth software stack and antenna to provide a complete, pre-certified plug-and-play Bluetooth 5 and Bluetooth mesh solution. It solves one of the major customer roadblocks for fast time-to-market as it integrates antenna, software and RF certifications, saving months of engineering effort and testing. The modules feature a Cortex-M4 with 512 kB Flash, 64 kB RAM, with up to +8 dBm output power.
