The Blue Gecko SoC family is supported by Silicon Labs’ Simplicity Studio™ development platform, a unified environment for concurrent MCU and RF design. Simplicity Studio tools include AppBuilder enabling developers to simplify wireless configuration; Desktop Network Analyzer providing full visibility of all wireless networking activity; and Energy Profiler allowing developers to optimize energy consumption and extend battery life. Silicon Labs’ easy-to-use BGScript™ scripting language further simplifies Bluetooth Smart development. Using the familiar, BASIC-like BGScript syntax, developers can create Bluetooth applications quickly without requiring external MCUs to run the application logic.
