STM32F7 series of very high-performance MCUs with ARM® Cortex®-M7 core

Taking advantage of ST’s ART Accelerator™ as well as an L1 cache, STM32F7 microcontrollers deliver the maximum theoretical performance of the Cortex-M7 core, regardless if code is executed from embedded Flash or external memory: 1082 CoreMark /462 DMIPS at 216 MHz fCPU.

Smart architecture with new peripheral set

The STM32F7 series unleashes the Cortex-M7 core:

  • AXI and multi-AHB bus matrixes for interconnecting core, peripherals and memories
  • Up to 16 Kbytes +16 Kbytes of I-cache and D-cache
  • Up to 2 Mbytes of embedded Flash memory, with Read-While-Write capability on certain devices
  • Two general-purpose DMA controllers and dedicated DMA controllers for Ethernet (on some variants), high-speed USB On-The-Go interfaces and the Chrom-ART graphic accelerator (on some variants)
  • Peripheral speed is independent from CPU speed (dual clock support) allowing system clock changes without any impact on peripheral operations
  • Even more peripherals, such as two serial audio interfaces (SAI) with SPDIF output support, three I²S half-duplex interfaces with SPDIF input support, two USB OTG interfaces with dedicated power supply and Dual-mode Quad-SPI Flash memory interface
  • Large SRAM with a scattered architecture:
    • Up to 512 Kbytes of universal data memory, including up to 128 Kbytes of Tightly-Coupled Memory for Data (DTCM) for time critical data handling (stack, heap...)
    • 16 Kbytes of Tightly-Coupled Memory for Instructions (ITCM) for time-critical routines
    • 4 Kbytes of backup SRAM to keep data in the lowest power modes
  • Protected code execution feature (PC-ROP) on some variants
  • On-chip USB high-speed PHY on some variants

Power efficiency

  • 7 CoreMark/mW at 1.8 V
  • 100 µA typical current consumption in Stop mode with all context and SRAM saved


  • Cortex-M7 is backwards compatible with the Cortex-M4 instruction set
  • STM32F7 series is pin-to-pin compatible with the STM32F4 series*

* Note: see datasheet for the specific case of 64- and 100-pin packages

Bring the benefits of STM32F7 very high-performance MCUs to your designs with the help of our 144-pin Nucleo kit, Discovery kits or evaluation boards as well as our comprehensive STM32 Open Development Environment

The STM32F746 Discovery kit offers rich connectivity including Ethernet, USB, microSD card slot, audio input/output, Arduino extension connector, and hosts a 4.3’ color display with capacitive touch support.

Featuring an STM32F769 microcontroller with 2 Mbytes of Flash memory, the STM32F769 Discovery board which has Ethernet with the PoE feature comes  with an optional 4-inch WVGA TFT LCD touchscreen with MIPI DSI interface taking advantage of the MCU's Chrom-ART Accelerator to boost graphics content creation and save the processing bandwidth of the MCU core for the rest of your application.

Developers can also use our Flexible Printed Circuit DSI adapter board to output DSI signals on a single-row FFC 15-pin connector or our DSI to HDMI adapter which supports 2-, 3- or 4-lane DSI video input data, S/PDIF, 2-channel I2S audio input data and HDMI v1.3 output port. These adapter boards ensure compatibility with most display types, resolutions and sizes.

Download and install ST’s STM32CubeMX code generator/configurator including its power consumption calculator and the STM32CubeF7 embedded software package, containing HAL and middleware. Start with one of the many examples provided or build your own project.

A full range of STM32F7 training courses are available online to provide helpful instructions and specific information on how to design applications that take advantage of the STM32F7’s performance capabilities.
