Today we launched the promised Hands On section of Low-Power Wireless. Check out our first (mostly video) review of Silicon Labs’ low-power wireless development kit:
Silicon Labs is known for its low-power microcontrollers as well as its wireless devices. So it’s only natural that they’d focus on low-power wireless, for which the Si1000 is their flagship product. Introduced earlier this year, Silicon Labs claims the chip exhibits both lower sleep- and active-mode power than competing chips (and you know who they are). When you have 10 minutes to spare and a fresh cup of coffee, check out the video here where we check out the Si1000.
OK, not yet but soon. Check back for more reviews for dev kits from Microchip, TI, Atmel, Lattice, Redpine Signals, Xilinx and who knows who else. If you have a dev kit you’d like us to review–and a bit of patience–drop us a line and we’ll look into it. Also any feedback on our reviews would be more than welcome. BTW this post is the place to post them, since WordPress hasn’t figured out how to accept comments on pages (at least I haven’t).
