Hi, my name is Mohammad, I've been working in embedded software for the past 10 years. I've worked on a few systems that involved the BLE112 module (mostly using BGLib and BGAPI over UART).
I look forward to engaging with the community and learning more about the new Blue Gecko Modules and helping where I can.

Hey guys and girls,
I am Aidan (Medicineman2500) and I have recently started learning 'real' embedded C/C++ as well as delving into hardware architecture and flurry of other cs topics. I really love embedded and I think it is where I will stay and grow, hopefully I will end up in either embedded C/C++ dev or even FPGA dev. I have done a bunch of stuff with Arch linux and continue to learn everything I can about programming.

I'm Steve, an 32 years old theatertechnician who started two years ago on a road that eventually will lead me to a bachelor in electronics & ICT. My interests go out to analogue electronics, show control networks (sACN, ART-net, dmx, dali, dante, ..), IoT & IoE...
Happy to be able to learn here.

Hi I am Mario
currently trying to get Thread running on the Mesh networking kit. I am very interested in the comparison of Zigbee versus Thread.
Hope this forum will help me.

I'm Yasu from Japan.
I have a question that is difficult for me. I want to understand it.
But I'm very bad at English. So my reading and response are very slow, and make some strange sentence.
I'm sorry, but please tell me some answers.

I’m an old analog and digital circuit, and software system designer. I'm familiar with dynamic simulation and data processing, storage, and display and physics, optics, sound, chemistry, aerospace, and oil and gas industries. Did my previous PIC project back in 2001. Now, I have a need to get interested in microcontrollers again.
My first question: How does one go about posting a new question (rather than a reply) in one of the forums? I need to program a microcontroller that can count a 10MHz TCXO with a 32-bit counter and have five capture time count registers that can capture on the change of five inputs. Where and how should I ask for advice on what starter or development kit to get?

First of all, welcome to the Silicon Labs Community!
In order to post your question, you just need to choose the right forum board.
For example, go to our 32-bit MCU forum: http://community.silabs.com/t5/32-bit-MCU/bd-p/2
You will see the 'Post Message' button at the top of the forum topic threads as below. Click on it, and then you should be able to ask your question to other forum members.
Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi, I am Hari Prasaath K. I am just getting into my first job as Embedded Engineer, going to work with si1062 microcontroller. I am completely new to this controller, so I am looking for a help to start from basics.

I am a private user located in Southern CA, and was reviewing my loaded programs on my PC, and noticed I have a "Windows Driver Package-Silicon Labratories Port (03/19/2014 184.108.40.206) loaded on my system. It was loaded on 2/5/2017, and there are no other programs I loaded the same day. I do not have any idea what this entry is, what it does, and what other program might be using it- can someone please enlighten me? I did look in my Ports in Device Manager, and do not have any entry except for "USB Serial Port (COM5), Mfr is FTDI, which is another one of those nebulous drivers of unknown use.
I appreciate any help you could provide. Thanks!

I am a full professor at a small German university and teaching various topics in electrical engineering and mechatronics, i.e. microprocessors and - systems, uP applications in industrial control, robotics and communications.
I am also a radio amateur since more than 40 years and from time to time, I also do some education for radio amateurs (also morse code) and development of applications in this field.
Thank you for you future answers and help,

My name is Geoff (pronounced "Jeff", but with correct spelling instead of USalien ;-) )
I've been developing firmware on various platforms since the late 80's. I live and work in Melbourne, Australia. My current employer is a consulting company that specialises in medical equipment (but will get involved in any project that promises to make the world a better place). This is my 10th employer in my career, not counting the private contracting work I've done in the past.
My current SiLabs project is about the only 8-bit development going on here. (Most of the projects here use 32-bit platforms or even 64-bitters.) It's in the medical field and is aimed at very high volumes: hence the low-cost device.
I have another project at the moment, using an STM32 (our organisation's preferred platform for embedded work). That project is non-medical, but aimed at saving lives.

My name Roger Clark.
I'm a freelance software and hardware developer working in Melbourne Australia.
I am interested in the optical sensing products by Silicon Labs, for use in medical and fitness applications like heart rate, blood pressure and blood oxygen measurement, specifically in wearable applications

I'm Shiv from India. I have been working with 8031/51/52 since 1987, switched over to other MCUs as and when required, and now looking to use the 51 in its Busy Bee avatar :-)

Hello, my name is Davide. I'm from Italy and I'm new to Silicon Labs. I'm a biomedical engineer and I just started to work on a C8051F000. I'm looking around for some tutorials for a fast start.
Thanks for your attention

why such an old chip?

I'm using an old chip because I'm working on an old project
Thank you for your support, I'll start with the study of the documentation that you linked to me.
