Introduction to STM32 – 32-bit ARM-Based Microcontroller
>>> 32-bit Microcontrollers are rolling the world, Now is the time to start moving from 8-bit low speed to the giant ARM <<<
Welcome to this course.
In this in-depth course, you will learn how to develop embedded firmware for STM32 Cortex-M 32-bit microcontrollers using various development tools.
The STM32 series are some of the most popular microcontrollers used in a wide variety of products. They also have an excellent support base from multiple microcontroller development forums.
This family of microcontrollers from STMicroelectronics is based on the ARM Cortex-M 32-bit processor core.
STM32 microcontrollers offer a large number of serial and parallel communication peripherals which can be interfaced with all kinds of electronic components including sensors, displays, cameras, motors, etc. All STM32 variants come with internal Flash memory and RAM.
STM32 can be used in your Engineering projects, Industrial Projects, or Home Automation related projects.
Why you should Learn How to Program STM32?
It’s based on a 32-bit ARM that cheaper and has more processing power than an 8-bit Microcontroller like PIC, 8051 uC. ARM cortex series are used widely in embedded systems. ARM also supports features such as low power mode, thumb instructions set, sometimes coupled with real-time co-processors, and good software library support.
STM32 series have some good options that can make them a good candidate for a project :
Hardware compatibility with other MCU of different series. For example, you can design a PCB that works both with an MCU from the STM32F4xx line and STM32L4xx.
The migration between different MCUs is documented.
Ease of PCB routing, pins of same port/functionality is close together.
A good set of peripherals.
STM32L! when power consumption and CPU power are needed at the same time, ST wins the battle.
