ST's tools for the evaluation of the STM32 & STM8 MCUs and MPUs, range from highly affordable community-enabled tools up to fully equipped boards, ready for the evaluation of every single feature of the selected STM32 or STM8 microcontroller or microprocessor. All ST evaluation boards include an ST-LINK in-circuit debugger and programmer.
STM32 Nucleo boards follow a lean approach and are ideal for prototyping and community use. An Arduino™ connector and ST’s morpho connector make an extension with application-related add-on hardware easy. All MPU/MCU I/Os are easily accessible and the boards come with a HAL library and work with IAR, Keil, CCC based integrated development environments (IDE) as well as the online mbed™ IDE.
Discovery kits are cost-effective evaluation boards bringing the needed infrastructure for demonstrating specific device characteristics. Developers can leverage comprehensive software examples highlighting the added value of the ST product or solution.
The Evaluation board concept lets developers build a complete platform suitable for demonstration or application development. This full-featured evaluation platform brings all required the interfaces, hardware and software, while its flexibility makes application design easy.
This comprehensive portfolio of evaluation boards is complemented by a wide choice of STM32 evaluation boards developed by ST’s partners.
