Silabs Hardware Support

Overview

Silabs provides software and tools for building connected products, from silicon to cloud.

Gecko OS is the operating system that allows rapid building of complex connected products.

Silabs provides platforms that run Gecko OS. Platforms include modules and evaluation boards.

For each hardware item below, the documentation includes links for product details and purchasing information.

Platforms

A platform is the basis of Gecko OS connectivity device. Gecko OS runs on a number of platforms.

A platform is a configuration of hardware capable of running Gecko OS. A platform runs a version of Gecko OS compiled specifically for that platform. A product is compiled for one or more platforms. The Silabs Device Management Server (DMS) classifies products by the platforms on which they can run. The Gecko OS SDK detects the device platform.

Where procedures and features vary, depending on the platform, the details are noted throughout the documentation.

Where a configuration consists of subcomponents, a platform is the smallest Gecko OS-capable component that can be obtained separately. For example, a Gecko OS AMW106-E03 evaluation board contains a Gecko OS AMW106 module. The platform is the Gecko OS AMW106 module. In the case of the NXP-SCCK, no smaller module is available, and the platform is the NXP-SCCK evaluation board.
