Silicon Labs’ PG23 Offers Optimal Solution During MCU Shortage
As lead times continue to increase in the wake of microcontroller unit (MCU) shortages, Silicon Labs’ PG23 is an essential component to combat supply disruptions. Part of the Series 2 Gecko portfolio, the EFM32PG23™ family of MCUs is ideal for battery-operated and embedded applications in industrial and consumer markets.
Incorporating an 80 MHz Cortex-M33 with robust analog and communication peripherals, the PG23 provides up to 512kB of flash, 64 kB of RAM, and comprehensive security through SecureVault™ integration. Providing software compatibility with Silicon Labs’ extensive portfolio of SoCs, the PG23 is a compact, power-efficient, and secure embedded solution.
The PG23 is an ideal component for a wide range of industrial internet of things (IIoT) applications including:
- Industrial Automation
- Test and Measurement
- Portable Medical Devices
