Image of Silicon Labs' Blue Gecko Xpress BGX13The Blue Gecko Xpress BGX13 from Silicon Labs is a wireless Xpress module that is specially designed to make adding BLE to applications as easy as possible, even for developers who have never worked with Bluetooth. With BGX13, Bluetooth does not have to be an intimidating interface to manage.

BGX13 is designed to function as a cable replacement with a serial link between BGX and embedded MCU. It supports secure connections with encrypted communication, bonding, and just works and passkey pairing. The module is Bluetooth 5 compliant, offering a 2M PHY in addition to a 1M PHY.

Xpress framework for iOS and Android apps takes away all the complexity of adding Bluetooth connectivity to mobile apps. With a simple API for connection and communication and example apps to get users started, Xpress framework makes BLE design as easy for mobile as BGX13 makes BLE design easy for embedded systems. Using BGX13 means users will spend less time learning Bluetooth and more time making their products distinctive, innovative, and delivered to market fast.
