How can I customize CP21xx device with Simplicity Studio?
Simplicity Studio v4 integrates CP210x/CP211x (except CP2114 which need to use the legacy AN721 CP21xx Customization Utility tool to customize) customization support in Xpress Configurator. Now you could use this tool to customize the CP21xx device, like the CP2104. To do this:
More information on Xpress Configurator for CP210x/CP211x can be found in AN721: CP210x Device Customization Guide. This application note can be found in Simplicity Studio or on www.silabs.com/interface-appnotes.
Some special feature (non standard) could also be customized by changing the FW. Silabs could help to prepare a special FW for customer if customer raise the detailed request. Please contact sales team to discuss and start this kind of request.
Note: The CP2102N and CP2615 was only supported by Xpress Configurator (integrated in Simplicity Studio) and CP210xSMT.exe and CP2615SMT.exe now, the old CP21xx Customization Utility tool was not updated to support CP2102N and CP2615 customization.
Some special feature (non standard) could also be customized by changing the FW (e.g. customize the Manufacturer String on some CP210x devices, etc), if you need to customize the Manufacturer String on CP210x you may need Silabs to customize the device for you. The Manufacturer String was available to be customized for device such as CP2615, CP2130, CP2112, CP2114 and CP2110 through the customization tool.
The installation package that include CP210xSMT.exe could be downloaded here.
