EFM32™ Gecko Starter Kit

The EFM32 Gecko Starter Kit is a platform for rapid prototyping of ultra low power microcontroller applications. It consists of a single board with a EFM32G890 MCU and some peripherals like a 160 segment LCD, along with a comprehensive software development environment. All available I/O is placed on breakout pads for easy access.

The development kit contains a unique Advanced Energy Monitoring (AEM) system that allows designers to have full control over their application’s energy consumption. Combined with the possibility to isolate the motherboard’s components not relevant for the end application, designers can optimize all variables that will make their application as energy efficient as possible.

The on-board emulator enables extremely simple setup, and combined with the peripherals, the breakout pads and the software development environment, the development kit gives a complete basis for application design and prototyping.

Symmetry Electronics (and its e-commerce division: SemiconductorStore.com) is an authorized Silicon Labs distributor.
