Mastering STM32: A step-by-step guide to the most complete ARM Cortex-M platform, using a free and powerful development environment based on Eclipse and GCC
With more than 600 microcontrollers, STM32 is probably the most complete ARM Cortex-M platform on the market. This book aims to be the first guide around that introduces the reader to this exciting MCU portfolio from ST Microelectronics and its official CubeHAL.
This is a book about the STM32 family of 32‑bit Flash microcontrollers from ST Microelectronics based on the ARM® Cortex®‑M architecture. The book will guide you in a clear and practical way to this hardware platform and the official ST CubeHAL, showing its functionalities with a lot of examples and tutorials. The book assumes that you are totally new to this family of MCUs, and it will start showing how to setup a complete and totally free software tool-chain to build your STM32 based applications. The installation instructions will allow to setup a complete tool-chain on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX.
The book is addressed both to professionals and to fans of this platform, like hobbyists and students. The book examples are based on the sixteen Nucleo-64 boards from ST.
This release is composed by twenty-six chapters, divided in about 850 pages. They cover:
Introduction to Cortex-M and STM32 microcontrollers.
How to setup a complete and working tool-chain to develop STM32 applications on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX.
How to use STM32CubeMX to generate application skeleton, and how to import it inside the tool-chain.
Introduction to OpenOCD and to the debugging of STM32 applications.
STM32 clock tree and its configuration.
Basic, general purpose and advanced STM32 timers.
I2C bus and protocol.
IWDG and WWDG timers.
The memory layout of an STM32 application and linker scripts.
Flash memory management and the role of the ART Accelerator.
The booting process in STM32 microcontrollers and how to write a custom bootloader.
