Code Generator, Quick resources configurator and Eclipse development environment for SPC5 MCUs
  • active Active

SPC5Studio provides a framework to quickly and easily design, build and deploy Embedded Applications for SPC56 Power Architecture 32-bit Microcontrollers combining a project editor, a sophisticated code generator, a dedicated HighTec GNU "C" compiler, a PLS starter kit debugger and several software elements such as code examples, low level drivers and libraries.

Pin Map wizard allows the visual configuration of I/O alternate functions, performs an automatic conflict checker and automatic generation of initialization code.Configuration summary is provided as well in xls format for customer application's PCB consistency check.

Application wizard provides a better-than-ever user experience in getting started to develop your own application with SPC56 MCU's; it leverages on ST's Automotive discovery kits, application boards, and all the related SW elements to combine SW and HW functionalities with a few steps, without reading manuals or writing a single line of code.

The SPC5Studio generated code is highly optimized, can be used as a reference functional and can be easily modified to the user's needs.

Documentation wizard offers on line help and component documentation access.

SPC5Studio is engineered into an Eclipse open source framework giving the user the possibility to add functions by developing their own plugins.

Project import / export functionality allows easy integration with other tools.
