BGM13P Blue Gecko Bluetooth® Module

Bluetooth 5 LE, Bluetooth 5.1 Angle of Arrival (AoA) and Angle of Departure (AoD), and Bluetooth Mesh Connectivity Made Simple

The BGM13P is a PCB module for Bluetooth 5 LE and Bluetooth Mesh connectivity built around the EFR32BG13 Blue Gecko SoC. It delivers robust RF performance, low energy consumption, regulatory compliance certifications, a wide selection of MCU peripherals, and a simplified development experience, all in a small 12.9 mm x 15 mm form factor.

Minimizing the engineering efforts and development costs associated with adding Bluetooth connectivity to any design, the BGM13P helps accelerate the time-to-market of products for end applications like IoT end-node devices and gateways, sports and wellness, home and building automation, beacons, industrial automation, and others.
