Silicon Labs Wireless Xpress BGX13P Starter Kit

Silicon Labs Wireless Xpress BGX13P Starter Kit is a development platform for the easy-to-use BGX13P Blue Gecko Bluetooth® Module. The starter kit includes the BGX13P module and can be connected to a PC through the USB port and used in standalone mode, or it can be connected to a Silicon Labs EFM8 or EFM32 starter kit using the expansion port. The BGX13P module requires no Bluetooth firmware development or RF expertise, as it integrates a future-proof Bluetooth 5 stack and all RF circuitry. It also possesses a standard UART interface to the host MCU, with high-level API commands to manage the BLE link and a stream mode that transmits bytes over the link as they are received. Mobile apps and example code are available to further simplify evaluation and development.
