Product overview


STM32CubeMonitor-RF (STM32CubeMonRF) is a software tool allowing the test of the radio performances of STM32WB based hardware devices on Bluetooth® Low Energy and 802.15.4 technologies. It provides a graphical display to verify RF performance, with transmission/reception tests and packet error rate (PER) measurements. Results can be plotted to visualize the evolution of performance over time.

STM32CubeMonitor-RF can be used to learn the various RF protocols supported by the STM32WB devices and build test scripts. It provides a dynamic list of commands with their parameter descriptions to test the protocol sequences manually. The user can test a command sequence without writing any lines of code.

The OpenThread terminal window provides an intuitive way to use the command line. The user can directly type the commands or use the graphical interface to build the commands and set the parameters. STM32CubeMonitor-RF can use an STM32WB board to capture the 802.15.4 frames in the air, and then forward the data to the Wireshark™ tool to decode the information exchanged between devices.
