ST’s software makes designing with STM32 MCUs even easier, faster, and more accessible
GENEVA, SWITZERLAND: STMicroelectronics from its barrio is presenting STM32Cube, a powerfully new-fangled free design tool and software for its STM32 microcontroller portfolio. This novel development platform, which streamlines and accelerates customers’ projects, is all set to further augment the position of STM32 as the go-to microcontroller family for groundbreaking electronic designers.
The fresh STM32Cube development platform embraces the STM32CubeMX graphical configurator and initialization C-code generator that affords step-by-step guidance aimed at users and a set of rich embedded-software components that save integrating software from multiple sources. The software takes account of a new Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) that simplifies porting from one STM32 device to another.
By way of gathering all the generic software components needed for developing applications on STM32 microcontrollers into one single package, this platform removes the complex task of assessing dependencies between individual software components. STM32Cube offers hundreds of usage examples and an update mechanism for fast and efficient access to the latest versions of the software.
“STM32Cube allows engineers to take maximum advantage of our large STM32 portfolio, which now extends to over 360 microcontrollers, offering extensive hardware and software compatibility spanning a wide range of performance, power, and features,” alleged Michel Buffa, GM, Microcontroller Division, STMicroelectronics.
Supplementing that – “Today we are announcing the graphical configuration tool, with the middleware and HAL supporting high-performance STM32 F4 devices. Further releases will roll out during 2014, extending support to all STM32 devices.”Google+
