With the recent KRACK attack, the security of WPA2 becomes equivalent of using an open, insecure Wi-Fi network. We are working on patches for our Wi-Fi products but in the meantime, hear some resources to secure the implementations using secure application level protocols, such as HTTPS, TLS etc.
Revolar is using the power of connectivity to develop personal safety devices that can help users stay safe with the push of a button. We recenlty had the opportunity to speak with co-founder Andrea Perdomo about the company and how they're using the IoT to meet this challenge.
The devices we've come to rely on are at their best when they're smart and connected, but this convenience comes with risk. Here we take a look at common commissioning methods and their security tradeoffs.
In the second part of our Timing 101 series, we take a look at a clock chip feedback arrangement that should generally be avoided that might occur accidentally or in an attempted recovery or test mode.
BlueBorne, the attack announced this week by the security firm Armis, makes it possible for hackers to take control of Bluetooth devices and spread malware laterally to adjacent devices. This vulnerability highlights the value of being able to upgrade security through software updates.
Silicon Labs CMO Michele Grieshaber discusses how the decision to add connectivity shouldn't be taken lightly, and how the IoT can open up new avenues if learning and iteration is part of the product design process.
One of the ways we differentiate ourselves is through our superior customer support, and we take pride in getting the right answers to our customers quickly. Get to know one of our most valuable resources.
Join David Lynch on his journey to write a book on entry-level embedded development. This blog series will bring you up to speed on Silicon Labs´ EFM32 Gecko microcontroller family and quickly give you the “big picture” of turning computer code into electronics gadgets.
Kevin Smith is one of our senior applications engineering managers, and in this Timing 101 series, he’ll explore some of the most common challenges in this area and ways to address them. In this first post, Kevin takes a look at what happens when a test yields unexpected results.
Today we introduced the industry's smallest Bluetooth low energy system-in-package (SiP) module, measuring in at just 6.5 mm x 6.5 mm with a built-in chip antenna. The next small thing is here, with all-in-one Bluetooth connectivity.
Silicon Labs turns 20 this year, and over the course of 2016 we’ll be taking a look back at how we got here, where we’re going, and meet some of the employees, partners, and customers that have helped shape us over the last two decades. Today we take a closer look at our office in Singapore and explore some of the city’s culture and history.
