STM32WB workshop MOOC
STM32 goes wireless: BLE IoT for all!
This MOOC provides basic information about STM32WB MCU line, with its hardware and software tools introduction and multiple hands-on session. Within the course, there is an introduction to BLE theory and its implementation within STM32WB stack.
What is the STM32WB?
The STM32WB55xx multi-protocol wireless and ultra-low-power devices embed a powerful and ultra-low-power radio compliant with the Bluetooth® Low Energy SIG specification v5.0 and with IEEE 802.15.4-2011. They contain a dedicated Arm® Cortex® -M0+ for performing all the real-time low layer operation.
The STM32WB55xx constitute a family of microcontrollers with different memory sizes, packages and peripherals.
