The STM32 high-performance MCU platform leverages ST’s Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) technology to combine:
- Best-in-class system performance for code execution, data transfers and data processing
- High integration: largest range of embedded memory densities and advanced peripherals
- Power efficiency
From entry-level to high-performance microcontrollers, our STM32 high-performance MCU platform includes four compatible product series.
The STM32F7 microcontrollers are based on an Arm® Cortex® -M7 core offering from 216 MHz / 462 DMIPS to 480 MHz / 1027 DMIPS. Thanks to an L1 cache, the series delivers the maximum possible theoretical performance of the Cortex-M7 core.
The STM32F7 series includes advanced and foundation lines as well as the STM32F7x0 value line.
The single-core Arm® Cortex®-M7 STM32H7 microcontrollers offer from 216 MHz / 462 DMIPS to 480 MHz / 1027 DMIPS. Available with an embedded SMPS, the dual-core STM32H7 series additionally contains an Arm® Cortex®-M4 core, providing 480 + 240 MHz / 1327 DMIPS.
STM32F4 Foundation and Advanced lines
STM32F4 MCU advanced lines offer from 168 MHz / 210 DMIPS to 180 MHz / 225 DMIPS. 11 compatible product lines of Digital Signal Controllers (DSC) combine the real-time control capabilities of an MCU with signal processing performance of a Digital Signal Processor (DSP), including a rich set of advanced peripherals and large memories.
STM32F4 Access line
The STM32F4 Access line includes entry-level microcontrollers of the series. With 84 MHz /105 DMIPS, it offers a compact, cost-effective solution with an outstanding power efficiency (Dynamic Efficiency™) and an extended temperature range (up to 125 °C ambient temperature).
With a Cortex-M3 core running at 120 MHz /150 DMIPS, the STM32F2 series is the first to include an innovative adaptive real-time memory accelerator (ART Accelerator™) and a multi-layer bus matrix to combine unprecedented performance, integration and attractive pricing. It offers 100% electrical characteristics compatibility across the entire product series from 128 Kbytes to 1 Mbytes of embedded Flash.
The STM32L5 is based on Arm® Cortex-M33 and TrustZone® technology combined with STMicroelectronics security implementation. On your STM32L562E-DK discovery board, TrustZone is disabled (factory setting) and you can develop as on any other STM32 device. This video shows how to enable TrustZone on STM32L562E-DK discovery using STM32CubeProgrammer and create, compile and debug or run a new project with STM32CubeIDE. It also shows how to open an example project delivered in STM32CubeL5 MCU Package, modify, compile and debug or run it. For further information, you can refer to AN5394 and AN5424 application notes.
MadeForSTM32™ is a new quality label delivered by ST, which is granted after an evaluation process. It helps engineers identify third party solutions with the highest level of integration and quality for the STM32 microcontrollers' ecosystem. MadeForSTM32™ is offered to members of the ST Partner Program who want to go one step further in our collaboration, with the overall objective of contributing to a high-quality STM32 ecosystem.
The STM32Cube.AI is an extension pack of the widely used STM32CubeMX configuration and code generation tool enabling AI on STM32 Arm® Cortex®-M-based microcontrollers.
