I am new to Simplicity Studio and do not have any experience with the development on Simplicity Studio.
Can I develop my code on IAR Workbench and port my 8051 hex Code output onto EFM8SB Developer kit, will it work.
I wish to quickly learn working on to Simplicity Studio, Please advice suitable help for the same.
however a hex code does not include debugging info and you will lose the BIG debugging advantage of using SiLabs.
another issue is that all configurator and sample code is done with macros that support SDCC and Keil but not IAR so here is another advantage you lose.
PS why SiLabs saw it important to support SDCC but not IAR I wonder
THUS I would recommend that you install the free Keil C51 and port your project it is fairly easy Keil and IAR are not that different
Thanks to both ERIKM and DELU.
I will try on my kit.
