The Silicon Labs Pro Kit for Amazon Sidewalk is now available at Mouser
Mouser Electronics is now stocking the Pro Kit for Amazon Sidewalk from Silicon Labs, providing tools and resources to develop high-volume scalable IoT applications using Bluetooth® and Sub-GHz wireless protocols.
The Pro Kit simplifies the development process and reduces costs enabling users to focus their resources more on innovation and less on testing and integration as they develop applications for the Amazon Sidewalk network.
The Silicon Labs Pro Kit for Amazon Sidewalk, available from Mouser Electronics, comes pre-programmed with Amazon Sidewalk firmware and Amazon Web Services (AWS) pre-registration, instantly and securely connecting users in a few minutes. Amazon Sidewalk is a secure, low-bandwidth, long-range wireless network that uses Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) and 900 MHz networks to create shared wireless mesh networks that route through the AWS cloud with multiple layers of encryption. Under Amazon Sidewalk, intelligent devices can constantly stay connected using dedicated bridges or gateways, forming a distributed network that allows devices to connect and send data to any bridge in range instead of being limited to one bridge.
These bridges and gateways help the community stay connected beyond the home and "across the sidewalk" to create more reliable or unobstructed connectivity for richer user experiences across all IoT-enabled devices, including home security systems, utility meters, appliances, consumer devices and more. With the introduction of Silicon Lab's Pro Kit, users now have a one-stop resource for Amazon Sidewalk development.
The Silicon Lab Pro Kit for Amazon Sidewalk comes equipped with a KG100S-RB4332A radio board and a 915 MHz antenna that provides a complete reference design to support Bluetooth, FSK, and CSS protocols. An xG24-RB4187C radio board and BRD8042A FSK/CSS adapter board are also included for users looking to develop a more discrete design.
The Pro Kit's mainboard contains an onboard SEGGER J-Link debugger with a Packet Trace Interface (PTI) and a Virtual COM port, enabling application development and debugging of the attached radio board and external hardware through a 20-pin (2.54 mm) expansion header. Other kit features include advanced energy monitoring, a low-power 128x128 pixel Memory TFT LCD, user LEDs/pushbuttons, breakout pads for Wireless SoC I/O and support for CR2032 coin cell batteries.
The Silicon Labs Pro Kit for Amazon Sidewalk can be purchased today through the Mouser website and is an ideal solution for developing Amazon Sidewalk and other high-volume, scalable IoT applications. The Pro Kit is also supported by Silicon Lab's Simplicity Studio, enabling users to start running code on their project in less than a minute.
