Unify Host SDK

This SDK contains non-embedded applications developed by Silicon Labs. The Host SDK is the main source for Silicon Labs customers who are working with Linux based applications in conjunction with Silicon Labs products.

When developing IoT products that leverage a Linux operating system and a Silicon Labs radio, such as an IoT gateway or an advanced IoT end device, additional software is needed to interface with the IoT radio and provide interoperability with the host application. To equip customers developing complex IoT applications for single or multi-protocol use cases, Silicon Labs has created a single repository for all customer software needs on a Linux gateway. Rather than pulling software from multiple repositories including the Gecko SDK, we've simplified the distribution of customer-facing software to enhance ease of use. We haven't changed what we're creating for customers, and the protocol-specific host software you expect from us is still distributed concurrently with the GSDK. But, each protocol supported by Silicon Labs has corresponding host application software that we've also distributed with the Host SDK for greater accessibility. Here is an overview of the components delivered with this repo.
