The purpose of the ToolStick is to provide a development and demonstration platform for Silicon Labs microcontrollers and to demonstrate the Silicon Labs Simplicity Studio software tools.

The ToolStick development platform consists of two components: the ToolStick Base Adapter and a daughter card. The ToolStick Base Adapter provides a USB debug interface and data communications path between a Windows PC and a target microcontroller.

The target microcontroller and application circuitry are located on the daughter card. Some daughter cards, such as the C8051F850 Daughter Card, are used as general-purpose development platforms for the target microcontrollers and some are used to demonstrate a specific feature or application. 

The C8051F850 Daughter Card includes a pair of GPIO-controlled LEDs, a potentiometer, two switches connected to GPIO, and a small prototyping area which provides access to all of the pins of the device. This prototyping area can be used to connect additional hardware to the microcontroller and use the daughter card as a development platform.

Note: A ToolStick daughter card requires a ToolStick Base Adapter to communicate with the PC (TOOLSTICKBA)

Applications: Brushless dc motor, Electric tools, Small appliances, Battery chargers, Optical transceiver modules (FTTH), FTTH (Fibre-to-the-Home) networks, Sensor interfaces, Lighting systems, Motor control, Set-top boxes, Stepper motor, Projectors
