Blue Gecko BGM13S Bluetooth® Module - SiP

Ultra-Small System-In-Package for Bluetooth 5 LE and Bluetooth Mesh Connectivity

The BGM13S is a SIP 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 6.5 mm x 6.5 mm package.

Minimizing the engineering efforts and development costs associated with adding Bluetooth connectivity to any design, the BGM13S helps accelerate the time-to-market of products for end applications like wearables, IoT end-node devices and gateways, sports and wellness, home and building automation, beacons, industrial automation, and others.
