The primary simply accessible board that mixes Matter and SparkFun’s Qwiic ecosystem for brand spanking new IoT growth is right here!
It is not typically that we get a brand new wi-fi communications protocol, so when our mates at Silicon Labs approached us a couple of new strategy to join appropriate units and techniques with each other, we could not be extra excited! Matter connects good residence units from competing manufacturers and bridges the hole between Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi in one of the crucial safe methods doable. That is the brand new trade–unifying customary that gives a dependable connection and simplifies growth for us makers. With that, we’re happy to introduce to you the SparkFun Factor Plus Matter – MGM240P board!
Matter involves SparkFun!
The SparkFun Factor Plus Matter is the primary simply accessible board of its form that mixes Matter and SparkFun’s Qwiic ecosystem for agile growth and prototyping of Matter-based IoT units. The MGM240P wi-fi module from Silicon Labs® offers safe connectivity for each 802.15.4 with Mesh communication (Thread) and Bluetooth® Low Power 5.3 protocols. The module comes prepared for integration into Silicon Labs’ Matter IoT protocol for residence automation. SparkFun’s Factor Plus growth boards are Feather-compatible and embrace a Qwiic connector for simple integration into our Qwiic Join System for solderless I2C circuits.
What is Matter? Merely put, Matter permits for constant operation between good residence units and IoT platforms with out an Web connection, even from completely different suppliers. In doing so, Matter is ready to talk between main IoT ecosystems in an effort to create a single wi-fi protocol that’s simple, dependable, and safe to make use of.
The MGM240P wi-fi module is constructed across the EFR32MG24 Wi-fi SoC with a 32-bit ARM Cortext-M33 core processor working at 39MHz with 1536kb Flash reminiscence and 256kb RAM. The MGM240P works with frequent 802.15.4 wi-fi protocols (Matter®, Zigbee®, and OpenThread®) in addition to Bluetooth® Low Power 5.3.
Need to study extra? Good! We have written a full information to get you began with the board and Silicon Labs’ Simplicity Studio IDE as a growth instrument for programming, debugging, customizing, and many others.
We’re so excited to see what you make with this board! Be certain that to examine again with us as we proceed to make new issues with Matter and the way it operates with different IoT units. That is solely the start of Matter and we’re thrilled to see it begin right here at SparkFun Electronics!
