STM32 developers can now get the benefit of ARM mbed
STMicroelectronics is new member of ARM mbed Project. This allows embedded systems designers developing systems using ARM Cortex based STM32 family of microcontrollers, a free access to the mbed software, development tools and online collaboration platform.
ARM mbed is formed to support development of Internet of Things (IoT). STMicroelectronics is estimated to be a top vendor of ARM Cortex based microcontroller in the market and is offering the broad range of its STM32 microcontroller range at a price as low as $0.32.
“The mbed project is bringing together leading technology companies to create a step change in productivity for embedded device development,” said Simon Ford, director, IoT Platforms, ARM. “We have learnt from the web and smartphone revolutions that by building an open-source software platform with reusable software components and free development and collaboration tools, we can enable the creation of IoT and smart devices on a previously unimagined scale.”
“By joining the mbed project, ST is enabling developers across diverse markets to quickly prototype and create new products based on leading-edge STM32 microcontrollers,” said Daniel Colonna, Microcontrollers Marketing Manager at ST. “The support for mbed will be launched with a brand new line of STM32 microcontroller development boards to provide a consistent way to develop with devices across the STM32 portfolio at hardware and software levels.”
The first mbed-enabled STM32 development boards will be launched in February 2014, and support for other boards and targets will follow. You can learn more at http://mbed.org
