New features and standards from Bluetooth SIG supported by all Silicon Labs Series 2 Bluetooth SoCs
AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Silicon Labs (NASDAQ:SLAB), a leader in secure, intelligent wireless technology for a more connected world, today announced their support for the Bluetooth Special Interest Group's (SIG) new feature enhancements for Bluetooth Mesh as well as their new Networked Lighting Control (NLC) standard, which seeks to provide a single standard for commercial and industrial lighting using Bluetooth Mesh.
"The new enhancements and profiles released today by the SIG will be supported by Silicon Labs devices and we look forward to applying the optimizations, cost-savings, and security enhancements in the new release for our customers," said Ross Sabolcik, Senior Vice President of the Industrial and Commercial Business Unit at Silicon Labs. "Silicon Labs devices have supported Bluetooth Mesh since it launched in 2017, and we have helped a countless number of our customers adopt the standard for use cases like building automation, predictive maintenance, and commercial lighting."
New Features Available Today on Silicon Labs Bluetooth SoCs and Modules
Silicon Labs devices support these new Bluetooth Mesh Feature Enhancements:
Standardized Network Lighting Control Device Profiles Improve Interoperability for Commercial Lighting
Part of the reason that Bluetooth technology has become such a prevalent technology in people's lives is its reliance on standards. Through standards, the Bluetooth connections made between phones, PCs, headphones, game controllers, vehicle entertainment systems, and countless others all work because they all have built and established trust in the device profiles that initiate these connections, and they are universally used and available.
The Bluetooth SIG is taking that to the next step with the release of their new Network Lighting Control (NLC) bundle of device profiles. These standardized profiles will improve interoperability, scalability, simplify integration in the field, and grow the Bluetooth ecosystem. The same Silicon Labs Bluetooth SoCs and modules that support the new feature enhancements can also support the following NLC profiles: ambient light sensor, basic scene selector, dimming control, basic lightness controller, and occupancy sensor.
