Simplicity Studio 1.20 + energyAware Tools (OSX, Linux)

Hi,


we have another release for you!

Today, you can download Simplicity Studio, as well as energyAware Commander, energyAware Designer and energyAware Profiler for both OSX and Linux in addition to Windows.

In addition to support for more operating systems, we have a couple of new features. The first one is a clone tool for when you want to start your project by basing your code on an example or an appnote. Simply click the Clone button, and you get a complete copy of the example code and all dependencies. There is also support for setting Atollic TrueSTUDIO as your preferred IDE for opening examples and appnotes.

We hope you like the newest version of Simplicity Studio!

OSX:https://energymicrofiles.s3.amazonaws.com/dl/packages/Simplicity_Studio_Installer.dmg


Linux: https://energymicrofiles.s3.amazonaws.com/dl/packages/studiow_linux_pkg.zip


Windows users get the new version as an update through their existing Simplicity Studio install.

Changelog:

Version 1.20


  • Full Mac and Linux support

  • Added functionality to clone Examples and Application Notes.

  • Added support for Atollic TrueSTUDIO.

  • Added 'Open folder' button.

  • Various bug fixes.

Simplicity Studio 1.20 + energyAware Tools (OSX, Linux)

Hello! First of all, thanks for Linux Release with eATools integration!

I`m prepare Gentoo ebuild for this release - http://gpo.zugaina.org/dev-embedded/simplicity-studio


Early I`m create ebuilds for each of the EnergyAware Tools but now I think this is not necessary. However I`m already accustomed that I have eATools items in my main menu. My suggestion is add option to SS to install .desktop files for all of ea tools into ~/.local/share/applications (see https://developer.gnome.org/integration-guide/stable/desktop-files.html.en for more info). But in this case SS should not simple create-and-forget this files - it should delete it on uninstall and modify if user change data dir in SS config.

BTW: is SS have any CLI options for manage data or locate config? It seems that it ignore -h and --help flags.


And what reason was to rewrite SS launcher from python to C++? So I can`t now patch it =(.

Simplicity Studio 1.20 + energyAware Tools (OSX, Linux)

Sorry to be trouble but is there a link to the Energy tools for Linux as I have been using a Windows box with simplicity studio and would rather not spend the time at the moment setting up a Linux box. OpenBSD now has KMS support (great for security) and I have switched most of our online desktop work machines back to that due to various Linux annoyances and for the added security. OpenBSD has Linux executable support but I would rather not enable it unless necessary.

Cheers,
Kc

Simplicity Studio 1.20 + energyAware Tools (OSX, Linux)

Got it from the manifest.xml. As long as the manifest.xml continues to make it this easy then I shall be perfectly happy.

To be honest even on Linux (certainly work systems) I usually prevent writes to executable locations by users and rather download verify and install before running and I am considering patching/wrapping the interpreters to do the same.

It's refreshing the way Energy Micro do things (allowing users freedom) and also providing https. Keep up the good work.

http://cdn.energymicro.com/dl/packages/manifest.xml


https://cdn.energymicro.com/dl/packages/energyAwareProfiler_linux_pkg_1.12.zip

SHA256 (energyAwareProfiler_linux_pkg_1.12.zip) = 4919814c9a85f1d89a600b1187f7b0ddaa9d74bfd339e989dc3569ce4c74d1c7

Simplicity Studio 1.20 + energyAware Tools (OSX, Linux)

Thanks for the Linux version. I would like to report a bug with supporting higher DPI resolutions. I think you should either force DPI to default 90 to prevent font upscaling or scale the whole interface. Here is a screenshot portraying the problem:

Hi,

@RushPL: That looks bad. I'll see if I can find a solution to that one. I've seen that the font sizes can be off, but not that badly off.


@Kevlar: Manifest.xml will stay in the current place for the forseeable future :robothappy:


@Alatar: No CLI at the moment unfortunately, .desktop files might be added in the future :robothappy:

Simplicity Studio 1.20 + energyAware Tools (OSX, Linux)

Hi

I have some trouble setting up my development enviroment under Linux Mint 15 (olivia x86-64). I have GG990F1024 STK.

First thing i did was to download the zip file. I ran start-studio.sh as root. It installed the studio in /home/[user]/Documents/Silabs directory. I opened it and install all the updates. I connected the STK. All the buttons under Tool section are not active. I can open all the documentations and all the external links are active.

So i moved to um003 pdf. The first step in there is to download the J-Link software from segger.com, but software is not available for download. 

When i run dmesg I see

[534831.964230] usb 5-1: new full-speed USB device number 40 using uhci_hcd

[534832.155262] usb 5-1: New USB device found, idVendor=1366, idProduct=0101

What have I done wrong? Am I missing a step?

Re: Simplicity Studio 1.20 + energyAware Tools (OSX, Linux)

Hi,

 

What happened to energyAware tools with the new SiliconLabs's version of Simplicity Studio?

Selecting EFM32 only installs documentation and example projects, the energyAware tools are not shown. Im glad I didn't install the older energymicro version so Im still able to upload binaries through energyAware Commander.

 

On the other hand, I have to say that Im really enjoying the Eclipse-based IDE. The editor as well as the out-of-the-box experience are great.

Re: Simplicity Studio 1.20 + energyAware Tools (OSX, Linux)

Hi,

 

The energyAware Tools are still included in Simplicity Studio 2. You may have to select an EFM32 part (or use "Detect Connected Device") for the links to show up in the main screen.

Re: Simplicity Studio 1.20 + energyAware Tools (OSX, Linux)

Regarding 32bit support, the old ia32-libs approach was phased out in favor of a better supported 'multiarch' approach.

 

Here's what I had to do to get simplicity studio running on my x64 Debian Wheezy (Ubuntu is based on Debian and if not identical, the resolution should be very similar):

 

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
apt-get install libqt4-xml:i386 libqtgui4:i386 libqt4-network:i386

 

After that simplicity studio ran fine

Re: Simplicity Studio 1.20 + energyAware Tools (OSX, Linux)

Well... it ran fine until it ran into a few more dependencies.... I suspect it'll take a while until I stumble across all of them and get them installed....

 

So far additional dependencies are:

libusb-0.1:i386 libqt4-svg:i386 libelf1:i386

Re: Simplicity Studio 1.20 + energyAware Tools (OSX, Linux)

Hello,

 

I'm wondering: is there a plan to make the new Simplicity Studio (should we call it 2.0?) available as beta for OS X? I see the addition of an IDE+compiler that works out of the box as a big value and if it would be possible to run it on OS X too that would be fantastic.

 

Kind regards,

 Hollie

Hollie,

 

 I believe that OSX support will be in the next update (the same one that adds physical J-link support).

I can't give a firm date but I'm expecting June or July (ish). It's going to depend on what pops up when we start regression testing the updates.

Re: Simplicity Studio 1.20 + energyAware Tools (OSX, Linux)

Hello,

 

I have a very stupid problem and I am not sure I understand why.

 

I am trying to install Simplicity Studio under Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit and I have a very strange situation. I am following the steps:

  • download the simplicity studio beta
  • unzip the zipfile somewhere
  • enter the folder
  • start the start-studio.sh shell script: ./start-studio.sh

Unfortunately this is where I stopped with an error message:  ./start-studio.sh: 11: ./start-studio.sh: /home/george/Desktop/studiow/studiow: not found

I tried to figure out which is the problem but I don't seem to find any issue.

 

Can someone please help me get going?

 

Many thanks in advance,

George

Re: Simplicity Studio 1.20 + energyAware Tools (OSX, Linux)

What is the output from "ls -l" inside the studiow folder? It should look like this:

-rw-r--r-- 1 username username   1977 Aug  9  2013 Changelog
-rw-r--r-- 1 username username  26940 Aug  9  2013 LGPL.txt
-rwxr-xr-x 1 username username 734915 Aug  9  2013 libquazip.so.1
-rw-r--r-- 1 username username   1856 Aug  9  2013 README.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 username username   5125 Aug  9  2013 simplycity_icon256x256.png
-rwxr-xr-x 1 username username    213 Aug  9  2013 start-studio.sh
-rwxr-xr-- 1 username username 156479 Aug  9  2013 studiow

If it looks different for you, try to repeat the process using the following commands (delete your old files first):

wget https://energymicrofiles.s3.amazonaws.com/dl/packages/studiow_linux_pkg.zip

unzip studiow_linux_pkg.zip

cd studiow

./start-studio.sh
