STM32Cube initialization code generator

STM32CubeMX is a graphical tool that allows a very easy configuration of STM32 microcontrollers and the generation of the corresponding initialization C code through a step-by-step process.

Step one consists in selecting the STMicroelectronics STM32 microcontroller that matches the required set of peripherals.

The user must then configure each required embedded software thanks to a pinout-conflict solver, a clock-tree setting helper, a power-consumption calculator, and an utility performing MCU peripheral configuration (such as GPIO or USART) and middleware stacks (such as USB or TCP/IP).

Finally, the user launches the generation of the initialization C code based on the selected configuration. This code is ready to be used within several development environments. The user code is kept at the next code generation.

STM32CubeMX is delivered within STM32Cube.

Key Features

  • Intuitive STM32 microcontroller selection
