#190073 - it depends
Responding to: David Smith's previous message
I notice that there is the Toolstick, Jim mentioned, and a 'full-blown' DK, the C8051F850-B-DK ($64). What is the difference?
I suggest you post here
http://www.silabs.com/support/f...fault.aspx
I have used several different devboards, but only read about the toolsticks, and seem to recall that you can not develop communication with them (it is locked through the USB interface, however do post and ask

Does the toolstick come with effectively the same software development environment (Kiel, etc)?
the full Keil (restricted in debug etc to SILabs only) is just a download

If I buy the toolstick, should I also purchase extra daughter cards - like the F5xx version Jim recommends - at the same time to avoid further shipping?
again ask in the SILabs forum
