The first session is January 19th, 2021at 09:00 AM GMT/10:00AM CET. Sessions will continue to take place monthly on every third Tuesday throughout 2021. Click here to register for free.
The BG22 Workshop
Learn new ways to integrate Bluetooth connectivity into your next project with the help of Silicon Labs expert engineers. Each project session will explore and solve challenges developers often face when building new Bluetooth designs. These solutions will be demonstrated using Silicon Labs ultra-low-power and secure EFR32BG22 Bluetooth 5.2 SoC.
Attendees will have access to live Q&A and 1:1 support to assist in completing the documented and recorded exercises. Registrants are encouraged to follow along with your own Silicon Labs’ BG22 Thunderboard, available to all registrants.
Live Workshop Session Agenda
Topic introduction: 10-15 minutes
Lab exercise: 60 minutes
Extended time for Q&A and technical support: 45 minutes
Technical support offered throughout the 2-hour session
What You’ll Experience
Technical training delivered by Silicon Labs experts
Live Q&A chat throughout session
Dedicated technical support rooms for 1:1 troubleshooting
A complimentary BG22 Thunderboard is available to all registrants who have not attended a previous BG22 workshop and will be shipped after registration and address verification is complete (does not apply to partners and Silicon Labs employees).
Silicon Labs Completes Acquisition of Redpine Signals’ Connectivity Business, Expanding Its IoT Wireless Technology Leadership
“This acquisition is fantastic news for Solid State Supplies as it strengthens our IoT product portfolio. We’re looking forward to working with new and existing customers to support them with this new product offering” said Matt Cook, Product Manager for Silicon Labs.
Redpine’s low-power Wi-Fi assets and intellectual property provide important technology for IoT connectivity. Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), the latest evolution of the Wi-Fi standard, is designed to meet the low power, performance, security and interoperability requirements needed in environments with hundreds or thousands of connected IoT devices. The integration of Redpine Signals’ assets will accelerate Silicon Labs’ roadmap for Wi-Fi 6 technology. The acquisition also adds Bluetooth Classic IP for audio applications such as wearables, hearables, voice assistants and smart speakers.

Silicon Labs are hosting a FREE virtual, hands-on workshop to develop a secure IoT device using the Thunderboard kit.
Silicon Laboratories (Silicon Labs) is the leader in greener solutions for a smarter, more connected world, headquartered, in Austin, Texas.
SiLabs aren’t just your average semiconductor company – they’re rebels on a mission to transform industries, grow businesses, and improve lives. Their work is to create the silicon, software, and solutions that enable the connection of things, information, and people. From MCUs, wireless SoCs and sensors for the IoT to advanced timing and power management chips for Internet infrastructure and industrial automation, SiLabs solutions provide customers with significant advantages in performance, energy efficiency, connectivity and design simplicity.
In February 2015, SiLabs acquired Bluegiga Technologies Ltd. Their technology portfolio includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Products include a wide range of wireless modules, varying from ultra-low power Bluetooth Smart modules to best-in-class long range Bluetooth Classic and Wi-Fi products.
Silicon Labs launched Wireless Gecko, in 2016, a portfolio of multiprotocol system-on-chip (SoC) devices. With an eye toward accelerating wireless design, this announcement represents a key ingredient for developers to realise IoT market potential.
