For Simplicity Studio 4 Users#

If you are transitioning from Simplicity Studio 4 (SSv4) to SSv5, you will see many improvements. Some familiar tasks have changed:

  • GCC is the default compiler. If you use IAR, be sure to change toolchains on the first Project Creation dialog.

  • If you are transitioning to Project Configurator (Bluetooth and Proprietary Flex):

    • Project changes are autosaved in the Project Configurator and Component Editor.

    • Project files are autogenerated in the background, so there is no GENERATE control in the Simplicity IDE. Generation progress is shown in the lower right of the perspective.

See Migrate from SSv4 for additional information about migrating projects developed with different tools and protocols.
