STMicroelectronics Reveals Affordable, Extensible Platform For Efficient Prototyping With STM32 Microcontrollers

Geneva, Switzerland, Feb. 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, and a leader in ARM ® Cortex ®-M processor based microcontrollers, is further broadening the accessibility and flexibility of its STM32 family by introducing affordable and easily extensible prototyping boards for all STM32 lines.

The new STM32 Nucleo boards are mbed 1-enabled, and support Arduino 2 connectivity while also providing ST Morpho 3 extension headers that allow access to all of the microcontroller's on-chip peripherals. As an mbed-enabled board, developers can make use of the mbed open source software platform, online tools and collaboration infrastructure at mbed.org. The board's Arduino headers accept shields from the extensive Arduino ecosystem, allowing developers to add specialized functionality quickly and easily. ST will also offer its own dedicated shields supporting functions such as Bluetooth ® LE or Wi-Fi ® connectivity, GPS, audio recording leveraging the Company's MEMS microphone expertise, proximity sensing, and wireless control.

Full STM32 Nucleo support for the STM32 family allows agile development with fine-tuning of both hardware and software on-the-fly at each prototyping stage. Customers' investment in application shields is also protected, as any shield can be re-used with any STM32 Nucleo board and across various projects.

"STM32 Nucleo is the ideal platform for today's embedded developers because it delivers an unrivaled combination of affordability, ease of use, flexibility, connectivity, and compatibility with popular tools and resources," said Michel Buffa, General Manager, Microcontroller Division, STMicroelectronics. "STM32 Nucleo also provides extra flexibility for developers to re-target designs and re-use hardware and software IP across multiple projects, leveraging the diversity and scalability of the STM32 family."

ARM's Simon Ford, director of IoT platforms added: "The mbed-enabled STM32 Nucleo hardware gives ST's customers access to the extensive mbed ecosystem of software, tools and community, supporting development of a new wave of intelligent electronic products."
