How Silicon Labs Norway Works
We are an elite team of IC Design, IC Validation, Software and HW/Tools engineers focused on developing and validating key components of the Silicon Labs IoT product portfolio. Our team has a deep understanding of all aspects of our MCU and Wireless products, from design to delivering a complete customer friendly system. Silicon Labs EFR32 and EFM32 MCU and Wireless product portfolios both originate from the Norway team. We take great pride in the technology that we deliver. We have a passion for what we do and always seek out better ways to serve our customers.

How the Oslo Digital Design Team works
The EFR32 and EFM32 MCU and Wireless products combine an energy-friendly MCU with a highly integrated radio transceiver.  These devices are well suited for a variety of applications across a wide range of RF protocols, digital protocols, and power levels.

The Oslo digital design team is, in collaboration with sites in Austin and Singapore, responsible for development of these products. We deliver a low power, simplicity focused platform, which is the base for all Silicon Labs MCUs and Wireless MCUs. In addition to contributing to this platform, the Oslo Digital Design Team drives full projects from specification to validation.
We leverage our history of low power, simplicity focused designs to make the best products for the future of the Silicon Labs IoT story.
