STMicroelectronics Updates STM32CubeMX MCU Configurator with Multi-Panel GUI for Improved Developer Experience

Geneva, November 21, 2018 — Setting up STM32* microcontroller (MCU) projects is more intuitive and efficient using STMicroelectronics’ latest release of the STM32CubeMX configuration tool. With its modern multi-panel GUI that lets users visualize and do more without changing screen view,STM32CubeMX v.5.0 makes optimizing MCU-configuration parameters easier and more comfortable.
 
STM32CubeMX kick-starts embedded projects by helping users to select the right STM32 device from the family of over 800 variants and configure the basic hardware features appropriately, before automatically generating the MCU-initialization code.
 
Users can take advantage of powerful device-configuration utilities, including a pinout selector with conflict solver, help with clock-tree settings, and a power-consumption calculator for accurate early-stage assessment of energy requirements and power-saving opportunities. There are also tools for configuring peripherals and middleware stacks, such as TCP/IP or USB stacks, and support for dynamic validation of parameter constraints.
 
When configuration is complete, STM32CubeMX generates initialization code that is recognized by numerous popular development environments including IAR-EWARMKeil MDK-ARMAC6-SystemWorkbench for STM32, or independent GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) toolchain projects.
 
STM32CubeMX comes as standalone software ready to run on major desktop operating systems or through the Eclipse plugin. It can be downloaded for free, together with other STM32Cube software including dedicated Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) middleware and code samples, fromwww.st.com/stm32cubemx.
