Question

Is it possible to download the flash contents (firmware image), or any other memory space contents (RAM, etc) to a file from Simplicity Studio?

Answer

Yes. This can be accomplished through the Memory view within Studio. First, connect to the device. To connect to a device without erasing and reprogramming the device's flash, see this article: http://community.silabs.com/t5/32-bit-MCU-Knowledge-Base/Simplicity-IDE-Connecting-Without-Downloading/ta-p/116373

 

Once connected, open the Memory view.

 

Then, add a memory monitor for the section that you wish to download:

Once this has been created, press the Export icon, and choose the desired format and address range.
