Silicon Labs is an official Mbed partner
Silicon Labs is a leading provider of silicon, software and system solutions for the Internet of Things, Internet infrastructure, industrial automation, consumer and automotive markets. Silicon Labs empowers developers with the tools and technologies they need to advance quickly and easily from initial idea to final product.
Silicon Labs and ARM® collaborated to deliver the mbed power management APIs, unlocking the ARM Cortex®-M power saving capabilities for low power applications within the mbed community. The APIs were designed with real-world applications in mind, and reduce power through many advanced techniques, ultimately enabling mbed’s developers to focus on rapid application development while benefitting from power saving techniques inherent in their MCU core(s).
The APIs achieve even greater power savings on the Silicon Labs EFM32 Gecko MCUs. Using nuances of the EFM32 architecture, the APIs automatically determine and enable optimal sleep modes based on peripherals in use. The APIs also achieve energy savings by enabling EFM32 I/O operations to be executed even with the EFM32 core in sleep mode or doing other processing tasks. The automatic selection of the optimal sleep mode, combined with low-energy, autonomous peripherals and I/O, enable developers to significantly reduce the energy consumption of their IoT applications with minimal effort.
