Simplicity Studio 4

Simplicity Studio simplifies the IoT development process with one-click access to everything developers need to complete their projects using an integrated development environment (IDE) based on Eclipse 4.5. Simplicity Studio includes a powerful suite of tools for energy profiling, configuration and wireless network analysis, as well as demos, software examples, complete documentation, technical support and community forums.

These integrated tools and features combine to make embedded development simple and productive for IoT developers of all skill levels. Simplicity Studio provides built-in intelligence to automatically detect the connected 8-bit or 32-bit MCU or wireless SoC, graphically configure the device, and show supported configuration options to help developers get their projects underway in minutes.

What Our Customers Are Saying

...Happy to see that Simplicity Studio is cross-platform – it was super easy to get, install and launch. The wizards made it easy to license the Keil complier without much fuss. Brilliant idea to have Simplicity Studio auto-detect the connected dev-board – it was easy to find source code and have the project already configured for my hardware....
