Product Families Supporting Simplicity Studio
Microcontrollers and Wireless & RF
One of the newest products to be supported in Simplicity Studio is the new energy-friendly EFM8 MCUs based on the popular 8051 core. These devices are ideal for IoT systems processing data that comes from port I/O or sensor inputs. Simplicity Studio also gives you powerful choices when it comes to developing with EZR32 Wireless MCUs. The new EZR32 wireless MCUs deliver best-in-class power efficiency and sub-GHz RF performance which makes them ideal for any application requiring longer battery life, increased wireless range and small form factor. The Connect software stack within Simplicity Studio will provide a complete sub-GHz networking stack for building simple point-to-point and star networks. This can take care of all content, development, and optimization needs.
This is a packet tracer and network analysis tool that can examine live or previously captured network traffic in detail. It includes API tracing, a virtual UART and provides network-aware energy debugging to get the most robust networks and the smallest batteries. When used together with the Simplicity Energy Profiler, phenomenally energy-friendly designs can be created in a fraction of the time.

The AppBuilder is a graphical tool with an embedded software framework and scenario templates for rapid development. New projects can be started based on an existing framework of best-practices developed and tested by Silicon Labs. The framework sits on top of the wireless networking stack to interface with the Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) and provide application layer functionality such as startup routines and high-level APIs for creating and handling message payloads. It is also the fastest way to create certified products using ZigBee standard public application profiles—a feature that’s coming soon!
