Energy Micro to introduce Simplicity Studio development suite to dramatically cut MCU development time
Company makes long-term commitment to simplicity
Electronica 2010, Munich & Oslo, Norway, November 9th, 2010 – Energy Micro, the energy friendly microcontroller company has announced it is to introduce a complete graphical user interface development suite for its EFM®32 Gecko microcontrollers. Simplicity Studio™ will contain all the information, documentation and tools required by hardware, firmware and software engineers to more quickly and effectively develop embedded systems.
Geir Førre, Energy Micro’s President and CEO said, “’Simplicity’ and ’energy friendliness’ have always been maintained as Energy Micro’s two most essential core values. Today, we are committing to achieving a long term target of helping designers cut hardware and software development times for MCU based systems by a half, and Simplicity Studio will be one important step along the way.” “With our pioneering energyAware™ software tools we have already made significant progress towards achieving this goal, and with the development of the comprehensive Simplicity Studio we will continue to push the limits of and set new standards for efficient embedded development.”
Øyvind Grotmol, Energy Micro’s newly appointed VP of Simplicity, said, “Simplicity is vital in achieving significant reductions in development times and by helping to make the development process as simple as possible we aim to deliver the efficiency savings that have long been waited for. Our goal is for Energy Micro to become as equally well known and respected for its effective embedded development suite as it is for its world leading energy friendly microcontrollers.”
Key elements of the Simplicity Studio already available include the patent pending energyAware Profiler, the world’s first and easy-to-use energy and power debugging tool for embedded microcontroller system development, and energyAware Designer, for removing the traditionally time-consuming problem of debugging I/O pin conflicts. More innovative tools, developed both internally and by third parties, will be included in the Simplicity Studio following its release during Q1’2011.
