App note: EFM32 Energy Modes

Sunday, April 17th, 2016

Application note from Silicon Labs on their EFM32 energy saving microcontrollers, some interesting points are discussed how these type of microcontrollers can conserve power. Link here (PDF) In battery powered microcontroller applications, energy saving is essential. By reducing the current consumption, the mean time between battery charging / replacement can be...

A GUI and CLI utility for EFM32’s UART bootloader

Friday, July 17th, 2015

Mario writes: I've been doing mostly sensor-based systems and I think these microcontrollers are the perfect fit. ARM Cortex (they go from M0 to M4, and their series seem to keep growing), an architecture that was specially designed for low-power sensor-based embedded systems, allowing to measure "stuff" while the CPU...

Programming a Silicon Labs’ EFM32 zero gecko with python via the Bus Pirate

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

‏@andete  tweeted: programming a +Silicon Labs  EFM32 zero gecko with python via the Bus Pirate; code at Github andete/PySWD (based on other people's work) ; it's really slow though; I should add fast programming mode based on the code in an0062 Get your own handy Bus Pirate for $30, including...

A self-powered battery tester with an EFM32

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

A self-powered battery tester with an EFM32 by Hlipka: So the idea that came to my mind was: why not build a proper battery meter which can give real and accurate numbers. That can’t be so complicated! And since the EFM32 is so low-power, why not make it powered from the...

EFM32 MCU ARM cortex M3/0 based

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Viswesr wrote to us about the EFM32 MCU from Energy Micro: Recently, I discovered EFM32 MCU (ARM Cortex M3/0 based) from Energy Micro when looking for a very low power MCU. I was impressed on how this MCU reduces power consumption (refer: 10 factors that make the 10 factors that...
