Silicon Labs offers the BG24 and MG24 families of 2.4GHz wireless SoCs for Bluetooth and Multiple-protocol operations and a new software toolkit. This new co-optimised hardware and software platform assists in bringing AI/ML applications and wireless high performance to battery-powered edge devices. Matter-ready, the ultra-low-power families support multiple wireless protocols and include PSA Level 3 Secure Vault protection, excellent for diverse smart home, medical and industrial applications.

The company solutions comprise two new families of 2.4GHz wireless SoCs, providing the industry's first integrated AI/ML accelerators, support for Matter, OpenThread, Zigbee, Bluetooth Low Energy, Bluetooth mesh, proprietary and multi-protocol operation, the highest level of industry security certification, ultra-low power abilities and the largest memory and flash capacity in the company's portfolio. Also offered is a new software toolkit developed to enable developers to quickly build and deploy AI and machine learning algorithms employing some of the most popular tool suites such as TensorFlow.

"The BG24 and MG24 wireless SoCs represent an awesome combination of industry capabilities including broad wireless multi-protocol support, battery life, machine learning, and security for IoT Edge applications," said Matt Johnson, CEO of Silicon Labs.

The families also have the largest Flash and RAM capacities in the company portfolio. This indicates that the device may evolve for multi-protocol support, Matter, and trained ML algorithms for large datasets. PSA Level 3-Certified Secure Vault, the highest level of security certification for IoT devices, offers the security required in products such as medical equipment, door locks, and other sensitive deployments where hardening the device from external threats is essential.
