Embedded software for STM32F4 series (HAL, Low-Layer APIs and CMSIS (CORE, DSP, RTOS), USB, TCP/IP, File system, RTOS, Graphic - coming with examples running on ST boards: STM32 Nucleo, Discovery kits and Evaluation boards)

STMCube™ is an STMicroelectronics original initiative to ease developers’ life by reducing development efforts, time and cost. STM32Cube covers STM32 portfolio.

STM32Cube includes STM32CubeMX which is a graphical software configuration tool that allows generating C initialization code using graphical wizards.

It also comprises the STM32CubeF4 platform composed of STM32Cube HAL and low-layer (LL) APIs, plus consistent set of middleware components (RTOS, USB, FatFs, graphics and TCP/IP). All embedded software utilities come with a full set of examples running on STMicroelectronics boards.

STM32Cube HAL is an STM32 embedded software stack that ensures maximized portability across STM32 portfolio, while LL APIs make up a fast, light-weight, expert-oriented layer which is closer to the hardware than HAL. HAL and LL APIs can be used simultaneously with a few restrictions.

Both HAL and LL drivers are production-ready and have been developed in compliance with MISRA-C 2004 guidelines. Furthermore, ST specific validation processes add a deeper-level qualification.

STM32CubeF4 gathers in one single package all the generic embedded software components required to develop an application on STM32F4 microcontrollers. Following STM32Cube initiative, this set of components is highly portable, not only to STM32F4 Series but also to other STM32 series. In addition, low-layer APIs provide an alternative, high-performance, low-footprint solution to STM32CubeF4 HAL at the cost of portability and simplicity.

STM32CubeF4 is fully compatible with STM32CubeMX code generator that allows generating initialization code. The package includes a low level hardware abstraction layer (HAL) that covers the microcontroller hardware, together with an extensive set of examples running on STMicroelectronics boards. HAL and LL APIs are available in open-source BSD license for user convenience.
