The BGX13P starter kit (SLEXP8027A) is the easiest way to start evaluation and development of your Bluetooth-connected solution.
The starter kit comes with:
- Wireless Xpress BGX13P expansion board
- BGX13P PCB module
- CP2102N USB to UART bridge
- 3 x mechanical push buttons (2 user
definable & 1 reset)
- LEDs (2 user definable & 1 USB status

Download the BGX Commander mobile app, built using the BG Xpress framework for mobile app development. With BGX Commander, you can connect and communicate with the BGX13P, as well as perform an over-the-air firmware update on the module.
Xpress Configurator, an application included with Simplicity Studio, provides a graphical interface, terminal window, and context-sensitive documentation to help you learn about the different Bluetooth Xpress parameters.
After plugging in your kit, launch Simplicity Studio, click on your board, and open Xpress Configurator. From there you can connect to the board and view the communication stream in the terminal window.
Start BGX commander on your mobile app. Scan and connect to the BGX13P module. Now text typed into BGX Commander will be transmitted across the BLE link to the BGX13P and appear in the Xpress Configurator terminal window.
