Simplicity Studio is a complete software console providing instant access to all the tools, documentation, software, and other resources necessary to develop systems using EFM32 Gecko microcontrollers (MCUs). Promising to reduce development times by half, the app consolidates control of everything from source code and third party IDE through MCU datasheets and app notes. The icon-based console auto configures in response to user selection of a target MCU from a drop-down menu. It then provides only the development options applicable to the specific MCU. Simplicity Studio is a free download at the company’s website. ENERGY MICRO AS, Inverness, IL. (847) 345-7691.
