EFR Connect is a generic BLE mobile app, which speeds up your embedded Bluetooth application development.
You can test and debug the Bluetooth applications and Over-The-Air Direct Firmware Update (OTA DFU) during embedded development. Troubleshooting with EFR Connect is a breeze – the Browser, Advertiser and Logging features help you to fix bugs in no time. For an in-depth analysis, you can use our Network Analyzer to see the collected packet trace data.
The out-of-the-box demos get you up to speed with EFR Connect and familiarizes the entire Silicon Labs development tools ecosystem.
EFR Connect works with all Silicon Labs Bluetooth development kits, SoCs, and modules.
Provision, configure, and control Bluetooth mesh devices with your smartphone.
