Silicon Labs' New Wireless SoCs Enable Eco-Friendly Zigbee Green Power IoT Devices

Silicon Labs announced a new family of secure, ultra-low-power Zigbee® system-on-chip (SoC) devices designed for eco-friendly IoT products deployed in mesh networks. The EFR32MG22 (MG22) family expands Silicon Labs’ Zigbee portfolio by delivering the smallest, lowest power SoCs optimized for Zigbee Green Power applications. Based on Silicon Labs’ Wireless Gecko Series 2 platform, the MG22 SoCs are an ideal choice for Zigbee devices powered by coin cell batteries or energy-harvesting sources. Target applications include smart home sensors, lighting controls, and building and industrial automation.

Rohde & Schwarz Extends Collaboration with Thales to Minimize Field Testing for IoT Modules

Rohde & Schwarz and Gemalto, a Thales company, are working on significantly reducing expensive and
time-consuming drive tests. IoT protocol stack features have been specified by 3GPP, but IoT devices have
to interact with different network configurations worldwide. This makes it important to ensure that these
features are working well in all sorts of configurations, configured by different network operators.
Thanks to the current cooperation, manufacturers of IoT solutions can use virtual drive tests during the
development phase of CAT M1 and NB IoT modules to find and fix problems at an earlier stage.
