STM32Cube embedded software is a basic set of software components like HAL, LL APIs, middleware and application examples.
STM32Cube Expansion Packages contain embedded software components that complement the functionalities of the STM32Cube and/or enable the usage of a multitude of ST devices in domains such as of sensing, power management, connectivity or audio, together with the most appropriate STM32 MCUs.
These expansion packages build upon, are compatible with the STM32Cube embedded software libraries and tools and enable rapid application development based on proven and validated software elements.
The software packages contain the necessary software extensions as well as implementation examples running on some specific ST development boards. The software architecture allows quick and easy adaptation to user specific hardware configurations.
STM32Cube Expansion Packages can also contain reference codes associated to application notes.
Here are the reference documents to develop and prepare STM32Cube Expansion Packages:
Follow issues and share solutions on Github for STM32Cube MCU packages. Integrate your own software components in a STM32Cube Expansion for STM32CubeMX and STM32CubeIDE tools, thanks to the new STM32PackCreator utility
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.
