STM32CubeMXSTM32Cube initialization code generator (UM1718)
STM32CubeMX is part of STMicroelectronics STMCube™ original initiative to ease developers life by reducing development efforts, time and cost. STM32Cube covers STM32 portfolio.
STM32Cube includes the STM32CubeMX which is a graphical software configuration tool that allows generating C initialization code using graphical wizards.
It also embeds a comprehensive software platform, delivered per series (such as STM32CubeF4 for STM32F4 series). This platform includes the STM32Cube HAL (an STM32 abstraction layer embedded software, ensuring maximized portability across STM32 portfolio), plus a consistent set of middleware components (RTOS, USB, TCP/IP and graphics). All embedded software utilities come with a full set of examples.
STM32CubeMX is an extension of the existing MicroXplorer tool. It is a graphical tool that allows configuring STM32 microcontrollers very easily and generating the corresponding initialization C code through a step-by-step process.
Step one consists in selecting the STMicroelectronics STM32 microcontroller that matches the required set of peripherals.
The user must then configure each required embedded software thanks to a pinout-conflict solver, a clock-tree setting helper, a power-consumption calculator, and an utility performing MCU peripheral configuration (GPIO, USART, ..) and middleware stacks (USB, TCP/IP, ...).
Finally, the user launches the generation of the initialization C code based on the selected configuration. This code is ready to be used within several development environments. The user code is kept at the next code generation.
Refer to STM32CubeMX release note for the supported STM32 series.
