  • active Active

SPC5Studio provides a comprehensive framework to design, build and deploy Embedded Applications for SPC56 Power Architecture 32-bit Microcontrollers quickly and easily combining a project editor, a sophisticated code generator, a GNU "C" compiler and other utilities. Download SPC5Studio from ST WEB (free download).

You can build embedded software for SPC56 MCU's by selecting the target MCU's, define the status of its resources by the Graphical User Interface and combining pre-defined software components.

With the application wizard software modules dependencies are automatically resolved enabling " syntax error free " projects creation at first run.

SPC5Studio is built-on Eclipse Plug-in Development Environment (PDE), a market standard extensible and fully customizable environment, enabling users to define new components and third parties to develop new plug-ins. SPC5Studio generated code is ANSI C.

Embedded GNU "C" compiler is featured by HighTec for STMicroelectronics and comes with a 30days free fully featured support. 1 year support extension could be purchased from ST franchised distributors (ordering code: SPC5-HTCOMP-NLTL).

Several additional software examples are available on ST web SPC5 product pages. For any question and contribution become member of SPC5Studio E2E community on ST WEB. To contribute additional HAL drivers, or to propose improvements, go to
