STM32 MPU OpenSTLinux expansion packages (X-LINUX-xxx) contain embedded software components compatible with the STM32 MPU OpenSTLinux distribution that enable the use of additional components for a specific feature such as AI, cloud services, graphics, or speech recognition with STM32 microprocessors.
These packages can also be compatible with STM32Cube embedded software libraries and tools whenever the Arm® Cortex®-M core is used.
In addition to the required extension software, the packages include example code for implementations running on specific ST development boards. The software architecture allows quick and easy adaptation to user-specific hardware configurations.
To ensure easy integration into the STM32 MPU OpenSTLinux distribution, each expansion package includes the meta-layer of the OpenEmbedded framework which contains all software components required to demonstrate the specific application or example. The meta-layer is provided either by ST to enable ST demonstrators or by ST partners for third-party frameworks and demonstrators.
Each STM32 MPU OpenSTLinux expansion package contains:
- the binaries, scripts, frameworks needed to demonstrate a feature
- the device trees generated by the STM32CubeMX graphical configuration tool and the STM32Cube firmware binary to be loaded in the Arm® Cortex®-M4 coprocessor
- a readme file to explain how to use the meta-layer and pointing out where to download source code of the STM32Cube firmware binary
- The cubeMX.ioc file to be able to regenerate the device tree configuration

STM32CubeMX is part of the STM32Cube initiative designed to simplify and accelerate the development of applications for STM32 microcontrollers. STM32CubeMX offers the possibility to generate C projects using embedded software offers packages like CMSIS-Pack compliant software packs. Starting with the 6.0.0 revision, STM32CubeMX is delivered with STM32PackCreator, an STM32 pack creation graphical companion tool, whose main purpose is the creation of software packs.
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.
