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, saving the developer considerable time and effort.To help developers optimize their 32-bit applications for energy efficiency, Simplicity Studio includes real-time energy profiling and analysis tools for estimating power consumption and balancing performance and energy efficiency. The energyAware Battery Calculator helps developers estimate current consumption and battery life. Developers can select EFM32 MCU Energy Modes and battery configuration and estimate power consumption before writing any code. The energyAware Profiler analyzes current consumption in real-time, quickly identifying areas of code that should be optimized if current draw is deemed to be too high. To help developers find application-critical information and resources quickly and easily, Simplicity Studio provides one-click access to demos, software examples, data sheets, application notes, technical support and community forums. With everything embedded developers need in one place, they can spend less time searching for information and more time making progress on their applications. “Simplicity Studio helps embedded developers take a major leap forward in productivity by integrating an entire suite of advanced software tools into a ‘one-stop-shop’ platform offering native support for Silicon Labs’ 8- and 32-bit MCUs,” said Geir Førre, senior vice president and general manager of Silicon Labs’ MCU and wireless products. “Development has never been simpler now that embedded system designers can complete their projects in one unified development ecosystem from initial concept to final design.” Simplicity Studio supports seamless, web-based updates, greatly simplifying the process of adding extra support and features with new platform releases. As Simplicity Studio updates become available, developers can update software tools without having to reinstall the studio. Simplicity Studio is available now to developers at no charge. Developers can download the Simplicity Studio development platform including the Simplicity IDE and development tools by visiting www.silabs.com/simplicity-studio. About the Silicon Labs Microcontroller Portfolio Silicon Labs’ broad portfolios of 8- and 32-bit mixed-signal MCUs offer significant advantages in performance, size, cost and energy efficiency for a wide range of embedded applications including connected devices for the Internet of Things. Silicon Labs’ EFM32 Gecko family – the industry’s most energy-friendly 32-bit portfolio – includes nearly 250 MCU products based on ARM Cortex-M0+, M3 and M4 cores. Pin and software compatibility across the EFM32 portfolio enables developers to scale their embedded designs from cost-effective Cortex-M0+- based Zero Gecko MCUs to higher performance Wonder Gecko MCUs, leveraging the DSP and FPU-enabled Cortex-M4 core. Silicon Labs’ diverse 8-bit MCU portfolio – built on a high-performance implementation of the 8051 architecture – includes 15 families and nearly 500 MCU products optimized for ultra-low-power, analog-intensive, small form factor, industrial, automotive, capacitive touch, smart interface and USB applications.
