Development software for Silicon Labs MCUs
4 June 2014, Design Automation

A new version of Simplicity Studio – Silicon Labs’ development system for its microcontroller (MCU) range – has been released, providing unified support for the company’s energy-friendly 32-bit EFM32 Gecko and 8-bit families.

This new software release inherits the best features of the original Simplicity Studio by supporting more than 240 ARM-based EFM32 MCUs shipping today, while extending development support to Silicon Labs’ 8051-based MCU products. It also now integrates an Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) that supports both 32-bit and 8-bit embedded designs.

The platform has built-in intelligence to immediately detect the connected target MCU. Graphical hardware configuration tools automatically configure the MCU, freeing the developer from the time-consuming task of perusing technical documentation. Developers can get projects up and running in minutes with sample demos and application code examples.

Embedded developers can use the integrated Simplicity IDE to develop and debug their firmware. It supports Eclipse plug-ins, uses the Eclipse Debugger for C/C++, and supports Keil and Gnu Compiler Collection (GCC) build tools. Silicon Labs also provides 8-bit MCU developers with Keil PK51 build tools at no charge. For customers who prefer the Keil μVision or IAR Embedded Workbench IDE, Simplicity Studio delivers seamless third-party tools support, allowing developers to launch their preferred IDE from inside Simplicity Studio.

Additional Simplicity Studio development tools help designers ease development by configuring MCU pin-out and peripheral placement and by generating C-code. The configuration tools also automatically resolve pin-out conflicts. The platform also includes real-time energy profiling and analysis tools for estimating power consumption and balancing performance and energy efficiency.

Simplicity Studio is available to developers at no charge.
