STM32Cube Expansion Packages complement and build on the STM32Cube MCU Packages by delivering additional embedded software components that enable specific applicative use cases, as well as the implementation of STM32 MCUs and companion chips as well as multiple ST devices in domains such as sensing, power management, connectivity and audio.
The number of STM32Cube Expansion Packages available is continuously growing thanks to the extensive and scalable ecosystem around STM32, created by ST and Authorized Partners. The X-CUBE part numbers are offered and maintained by ST, and I-CUBE part numbers are developed and maintained by Partners and third parties.
How to take advantage of STM32Cube Expansion packages
Today, developers can find ready-to-use expansion packages for cloud connectivity (Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google GCP, etc.), LoRa, Sigfox and cellular connectivity, NFC, industrial communication protocols, crypto libraries, sensor drivers, motor control algorithms, safety self-test libraries, and more.
Pre-configured to compile and run out of the box on specific ST boards, STM32Cube Expansion Packages all include multiple ready-to-use project examples for ntegrated development environments (IDE) such as IAR Embedded Workbench®, MDK-ARM and STM32CubeIDE.
Several STM32Cube Expansion Packages are enhanced for STM32CubeMX and STM32CubeIDE software tools (STM32 Toolset). Users can configure software components from an STM32Cube Expansion Package in a graphical user interface (GUI) and automatically import them in their own newly-generated project. This allows developers to create scalable designs and to quickly move to another compatible STM32 device, hardware board or prototype.

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.
MadeForSTM32™ is a new quality label delivered by ST, which is granted after an evaluation process. It helps engineers identify third party solutions with the highest level of integration and quality for the STM32 microcontrollers' ecosystem. MadeForSTM32™ is offered to members of the ST Partner Program who want to go one step further in our collaboration, with the overall objective of contributing to a high-quality STM32 ecosystem.
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.
