Silicon Labs Unified Development Platform
Silicon Labs Unified Development Platform (UDP) offers an innovative, new approach in hardware support, featuring a unified mother board, modular boards, integrated LCD and ample real estate for prototyping, expansion and integration. The UDP platform supports MCU code and firmware development (IDE, Configuration Wizard, example codes etc.), RF design and optimization (WDS support, automatic board detection and firmware download, sample RF code, run-time PHY interface etc.), Networks and protocol stacks (such as the wireless M-Bus stack). The UDP motherboard accepts four types of boards: the target MCU card, the I/O expander card, the radio card, and the EZLink card. The motherboard can be used with an MCU card alone without an I/O card, radio card, or EZLink card. Many individual and additional cards are available to satisfy the requirements for the end application.
