The STM32U5 series of microcontrollers represents the latest generation of ultra-low power devices that enable applications to further extend battery life while providing enhanced device security.

In this workshop you will learn how to build IoT applications with the STM32U5 MCU through hands-on exercises using the STM32U5 Nucleo board and associated ecosystem software.

Our instructors will guide you step-by-step through real example applications including the new LPBAM (Low Power Background Autonomous Mode), an innovative autonomous power mode that saves power by enabling direct memory access. We will also go over the concepts related to how to partition secure and non-secure applications using the TrustZone block.

The lab sessions will use the STM32U5 Nucleo development board (NUCLEO-U575ZI-Q) as the hardware platform to run STM32CubeMX to select and configure peripherals. This allows a seamless transition to an STM32CubeIDE project and allows for quick code initialization to speed up the design cycle.

This workshop is self-paced and can be accessed on-demand any time after the start of the selected session (see Session dates and times). Please note that live tech support via online break-out rooms will be available only during the scheduled session hours.

Who should attend?

This workshop is intended for firmware developers, system integrators, design engineers, and technology architects developing embedded solutions on STM32 microcontrollers.

Participation details

This workshop is open to residents of the Americas only.

The NUCLEO-U575ZI-Q development board from STMicroelectronics is required to participate in the workshop exercises. Exclusively for attendees of this workshop, a limited number of boards will be available for purchase from the ST eStore with free shipping. You will receive purchase instructions by email soon after we receive your request to participate.
