Silicon Labs claims dynamic multi-protocol support for IoT devices

Silicon Labs has aims to address the issue of fragmented connectivity for the Internet of Things with ‘dynamic multi-protocol software’ for its Wireless Gecko modules and chips. Many IoT chip providers, such as NXP, Texas Instruments and Nordic, now embed multi-protocol capabilities into their hardware, but Silicon Labs claims to have gone a step further, enabling devices to connect to Zigbee and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) dynamically, and at the same time. Daniel Cooley, general manager of IoT products at the chip supplier, said fully dynamic switching is unique in this market – other solutions do not switch in real time. Some use cases will rely on this dynamic operation, or at least will benefit from it – dynamic time…
