What's New in Simplicity Studio 3.1?

Faster Speeds

Getting started with Simplicity Studio is now even faster. Tools shouldn’t get in the way of evaluating and designing with our products. With this new version of Simplicity Studio, we’ve made the getting started process faster by:

  • Reducing the download size by a factor of 10, which means you can download Simplicity Studio and run a demo in less than 10 minutes
  • Making the most frequent tasks run up to 3x as fast as they did in version 3.0

Enhanced Energy Profiler

Cleaner, easter, and more intelligent Energy Profiler inspired by a real oscilloscope. New features include:

  • Saved sessions allows users to compare relevant data to better understand the impact of design modificaitons
  • Energy Score provides an analytical (and fun) way to determine which design iteration provides the best “energy score”

Wireless Support

Expanded range of supported wireless software stacks enables robust wireless design

  • The highest levels of wireless competence are required when implementing a standards based or proprietary wireless network. Full stack support for our wireless ICs within Simplicity Studio greatly simplifies wireless designs by providing tried and tested software

The New Energy Profiler – A Better Way to Visualize, Debug, and Optimize Energy Consumption

Simplicity Studio Energy Profiler
The Energy Profiler offers a new, unique Energy Score feature, enabling developers to benchmark the energy efficiency of their IoT system designs. The Energy Score helps developers determine which design iteration provides the highest score directly correlated to battery life. A higher score (on a 0 to 10 scale) indicates lower energy consumption and longer battery life. This enables developers to save sessions, enabling them to compare relevant data from their saved sessions to gain a better understanding of how design modifications impact overall energy efficiency.

Energy Profiler also features an enhanced graphing capability that has the familiar look and feel of an oscilloscope. Developers can now zoom in on the X (time) and Y (power) axes of the graph to visualize the details of energy consumption with greater precision. In addition, the energy profiler provides a direct correlation between the energy graph, function analyzer and application code. This three-way correlation capability greatly enhances the ability to optimize a design for ultra-low energy consumption.

Network Analyzer: Improve Wireless Connections

Simplicity Studio Network Analyzer
Take advantage of a packet tracer and network analysis features including API tracing and a virtual UART in the Network Analyzer. Combine the Network Analyzer with the Energy Profiler to create systems with the most robust networks and the smallest batteries.

Simplicity IDE: Select the Ideal Tool-chain

Simplicity Studio IDE
Simplicity Studio includes a free GNU tool-chain based (gcc and gdb), Keil® (for 8-bit MCUs) and an eclipse IDE. Developers can also take advantage of integration with Keil µVision or IAR Embedded Workbench to quickly run examples and design their applications.


Configurator: Speed PCB Design

Simplicity Studio Configurator
Manage pin assignments and resolve pin conflicts automatically with the Simplicity Configurator, a graphical configuration utility for wireless MCUs, EFM32™ 32-bit MCUs and 8051 and EFM8™ 8-bit MCUs.


AppBuilder: Design ZigBee® Certified Products

Simplicity Studio AppBuilder
Use the graphical AppBuilder tool to deliver complete products ready for “ZigBee Certified Product” testing and designation. Simplify development with automatically generated ZigBee certifiable template applications.
