Premier Farnell introduced the Keil MCBSTM32F400 and MCBSTM32F200 Development Kits. The ARM Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4 processor-based STM32F2xx and STM32F4xx Development Kits will be shipped with Keil MDK-Lite Development Tools and the ULINK-ME Debug Adapter. The Cortex-M3 processor-based STM32F2xx and the Cortex-M4 processor-based STM32F4xx devices featured on the boards can reduce power consumption in applications requiring both high processing power and low-power performance when running at low voltage or on rechargeable batteries.
STMicroelectronics introduced the STM3220G-JAVA Starter Kit. The STM3220G-JAVA kit is a complete platform for evaluating the development of embedded applications in Java for the STM32 F2 series microcontrollers. The new Java tool includes an evaluation version of IS2T’s MicroEJ Software Development Kit (SDK) and the STM32F2 series microcontroller evaluation board providing everything engineers need to start their projects. The STM3220G-JAVA Starter Kit is available now. It is priced at $349.
Express Logic’s PrismX GUI software development solution now supports the STMicroelectronics STM32 processor family. PrismX is a ThreadX RTOS-integrated port of Blue Water Embedded’s Prism technology. It is ideal for resource-constrained devices such as STMicroelectronics Cortex-M3-based STM32. PrismX features a high-performance graphical drawing library and a GUI widget set for the STM32 platform. PrismX for the STM32F10C is available in full source code form, royalty free. License prices start at $9,500.
STMicroelectronics introduced a low-cost development environment for the STM32 microcontroller families built using the ARM Cortex-M3 processor core, which is optimized for embedded applications. The environment combines the Atollic TrueSTUDIO/STM32 development tool and ST’s ST-LINK debug probe to connect to the target via USB. The ST-LINK debug probe is available for $21. Atollic TrueSTUDIO/STM32 can be downloaded at a price of euro 995 for TrueSTUDIO/STM32 Pro. TrueSTUDIO/STM32 Lite is available for free.
The STM32-comStick from STMicroelectronics is a low-cost, full-featured development platform in a USB stick that enables fast application design for STM32 Connectivity Line microcontrollers. The STM32-comStick includes an unlimited Hitex HiTOP5 IDE/debugger and TASKING C compiler, a built-in GUI allowing control of the application, and a 72MHz STM32F107VC Connectivity Line MCU with 256 KB Flash. Developers can plug the device directly into a PC USB port to evaluate the MCU communication peripherals and build, program and debug their own applications. No external components, software, or power supply are required.
