STMicroelectronics has made starting new designs with its popular 8-bit STM8 microcontrollers easier and faster by introducing the STM8CubeMX graphical configurator

30 Mar 2017

STM8CubeMX supports the complete portfolio of mainstream, low-power, and automotive 8-bit STM8 microcontrollers. This new, free tool helps designers select the optimum 8-bit microcontroller (MCU) from the STM8 family to satisfy their application requirements. Designers can also jump-start development on STM8 boards from the ST portfolio by pre-configuring the tool in the same way the MCU is implemented on the chosen board. STM8CubeMX then provides graphical tools that help complete basic configuration of the chosen device. These include a pinout configurator with automatic conflict resolution, a clock-tree configurator with dynamic validation, and a power sequencer and consumption estimator. A configuration report generated on completion shows how the designer’s requirements have been met.

The STM8CubeMX PC-based application is available for Windows®, Linux®, and macOS® platforms
