Development tools

To complement and enable ST's microcontrollers, microprocessors and other programmable silicon ICs, ST proposes a wide range of development and evaluation boards as well as Discovery kits designed to help engineers perform a comprehensive evaluation the features and performance of ST's products and find the best solutions for their applications while reducing development costs and time to market.

In addition to graphical user interfaces, emulators and low-cost in-circuit debugger/programmers, our microcontroller and microprocessor development ecosystem includes embedded software libraries and example code as well as an extensive set of software expansion and function packs.

With access to this comprehensive set of hardware and software tools developed by ST and from a large network of certified partners, engineers benefit from a structured framework fostering IP reuse and platform scalability.
