Silicon Labs Wi-Fi Solution Helps Products Excel in Noisy RF Environments

By Ken Briodagh January 24, 2019

Silicon Labs reportedly has expanded its Wi-Fi portfolio of modules and transceivers in order to enable developers to create end node products with better power efficiency, RF blocking performance and advanced security.

“Our Wi-Fi portfolio enables IoT product designs that weren’t possible until now,” said Matt Johnson, Senior Vice President and General Manager of IoT products at Silicon Labs. “IoT developers now have a Wi-Fi solution that is truly optimized for their application requirements and addresses their major concerns around power, RF performance, size and security.”

Silicon Labs’ flexible Wi-Fi portfolio includes three device types:

  • The WGM160P module – the portfolio’s latest addition – expands design possibilities and offers an easier way to create cloud-connected IoT products by combining an onboard Gecko microcontroller, host support, integrated antenna, precertification, large memory (2 MB flash and 512K RAM), and extensive peripheral capabilities including Ethernet and capacitive touch.
  • The WFM200 module is the smallest pre-certified Wi-Fi system-in-package (SiP) device with an integrated antenna, making it a perfect fit for space-constrained designs. The module also opens up new industrial and outdoor applications with 105 oC temperature support.
  • The WF200 transceiver IC provides a cost-effective way to add Wi-Fi to existing high-volume designs, works well with a variety of hosts (ranging from 8-bit to Linux-class processors) and supports antenna diversity.

The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
