STM32 microcontrollers, also referred to as a STM32 is a family of 32-bit microcontrollers consist of a processor core, offering a large number of serial and parallel communication peripherals which can be interfaced with a wide variety of electronic components.
STM MCU are used in many everyday devices such as mobile phones, cameras, cars, washing machines just to name a few and are extremely small microcomputers that are self-contained on a single STM32 chip that can be used as an embedded system.
These MCUs are designed to perform a single automated task repeatedly as pre-programmed by the user or on a timed loop.
The STM32 variants come with internal Flash memory and RAM and there are a number of different types and varieties of the STM32. They are so popular due to their suitability for low-power applications and ultra-low-power series.
The STM32 range features a variety of options to the developer to choose the perfect microcontroller for their specific project. Some of the MCU STM32-bit ARM Cortex range include Arm Cortex M cores (Cortex-M0, Cortex-M0+, Cortex-M3, Cortex-M4 and Arm Cortex-M7) and are supported by a comprehensive set of software tools. These software development tools help enable make the STM32 the ideal choice for projects and entire platform decisions.
