Discovery Plus Kit for SPC56 M line - with SPC563M64L7 MCU

The SPC56M-DIS Discovery+ kit helps to discover SPC56 M line Power Architecture®Microcontrollers with full access to CPUs, GPI/O's and peripherals such as CAN, UART, JTAG, K-Line, LIN at budget price.

Free ready-to-run application firmware examples are available inside SPC5Studio to support quick evaluation and development.

SPC5Studio includes visual configurable code generation engine, board support package (BSP), startup routines, interrupt services, free RTOS (optional) and a full set of low level drivers. SPC5Studio includes Hightec GNU "C" compiler, with a 30-days full free trial license. SPC5Studio is available for free download.

The SPC56 M line is designed to address cost sensitive powertrain and transmission applications.

The SPC56M key functionality is Time processing units (eTPU) a coprocessor to create events in sync with internal or external signals without flooding the CPU with interrupt to serve.

An E2E Community is available on ST WEB to get ST experts support in getting started quickly with SPC56 microcontrollers.
