EZRadio and EZRadio Pro Wireless Development Suite

Silicon Labs’ Wireless Development Suite (WDS) provides wireless application developers a comprehensive toolset to quickly and easily create and deploy efficient, robust and low-cost wireless applications with little or no specific RF design and measurement experience.

EZConfig Wizard

EZRadio and EZRadioPRO Sub-GHz products, Silicon Labs offers example projects (sample code) within WDS software. These example projects have been optimized by Silicon Labs and verified for performance. They can be used to support bidirectional and unidirectional links using standard or custom parameters, support packet and direct modes and test RF performance. The GUI control panel provides complete flexibility in setting up your own configuration to start application code development or to evaluate RF performance in the lab. Advanced settings for EZRadioPRO can also be configured in this environment, enabling you to completely configure the device without the need to manually set registers within the part.
