EFR32MG21 Series 2 Multiprotocol Wireless SoC

EFR32MG21 devices bring high performance, low power and secure solutions to the IoT. Designed to increase processing capability, improve RF performance and lower active current, EFR32MG21 devices are 2.4 GHz wireless SoCs optimized for line-powered Zigbee, Thread and Bluetooth mesh applications, including connected lighting, gateways, voice assistants and smart metering. With a dedicated security core that provides faster encryption, secure boot loading and debug access control. With better than -104 sensitivity for both 802.15.4 and Bluetooth Long Range and up to +20 dBm output power, EFR32MG21 provides a robust RF link to ensure reliable communications. The Series 2 uses the same tools as Series 1, providing easy migration and fast time-to-market with development kits, SDKs, mobile apps and our patented network analyzer.
