EFM8™ Sleepy Bee Capacitive Touch Sense 8-bit MCU Starter Kit


The Silicon Labs EFM8 Sleepy Bee Starter Kit is an excellent starting point to evaluate and develop very low power applications on the EFM8 Sleepy Bee MCUs. These energy-friendly EFM8 MCUs are based on the popular 8051 core and are ideal for IoT systems processing data that comes from port I/O or sensor inputs. The SLSTK2010A capactivie touch sense starter kit can be used to evaluate EFM8SB1 set of devices. The kit is enabled with Advanced Energy Monitor (AEM) that can be used in conjunction with the Energy Profiler tool in Simplicity Studio for real-time current and voltage monitoring.

This kit includes the most capable MCU in the capacitive sense family, EFM8SB10F8G-A-QFN24, operating up to 25 MHz. The EFM8SB10F8G-A-QFN24 MCU includes 8 kB of flash and 512 B of RAM and 14 capacitive sense channels.

The Sleepy Bee Starter Kit Includes

  • Integrated debugger
  • Si7021 humidity and temperature sensor
  • LCD display
  • Pushbuttons
  • 32 kHz crystal for Real Time Clock (RTC) operation
  • Tri-color LED
  • 1 mini USB cable
