New development kits for ST's 32-bit ARM-based microcontrollers
21 September 2005, Design Automation

STMicroelectronics has announced availability of cost-effective development kits for its recently-introduced STR711F/12F 32-bit ARM-based microcontrollers. These microcontrollers are intended for high-performance but cost-sensitive applications, and offer embedded USB or CAN interfaces. The company says these kits from IAR Systems answer a real need in the market for a low-cost, high-quality solution for evaluating the STR7 MCU family and for creating and debugging new applications.

The STR711-SK/IAR and STR712-SK/IAR KickStart kits support all of the normal development phases, and enable designers to move from evaluation to full-scale development with no additional work. They include an evaluation board complete with STR711F or STR712F microcontroller, a USB to JTAG hardware interface for debugging, a 20-state version of the visualSTATE graphical design environment, and a KickStart version of Embedded Workbench for ARM (EWARM), IAR's integrated development environment.

The evaluation board provides a full range of features - including I/O ports, ADC, UART, two SPI and I²C ports, and USB or CAN connector - to help designers to evaluate and start developing applications for the on-board STR71xF MCU. The board is powered through the USB to JTAG interface from the host PC to eliminate the need for an external power supply.

The EWARM integrated development environment (IDE) includes the KickStart 32 KB C/C++ compiler for building the application, and the C-SPY debugger for debugging the code while it runs on the evaluation board's STR71xF microcontroller. It also offers complete integration with the J-Link-KS JTAG interface, plus editor, linker and librarian tools, and built-in flash programming, all controlled through a single intuitive user interface.

Embedded Workbench is well-regarded among developers of 8, 16 and 32-bit systems worldwide, and its ultra-dense code generation makes it ideal for the STR71xF target market. The kit is completed by a full set of documentation and firmware, with example projects covering all of the STR711F and STR712F peripherals, STR71xF standard and USB libraries, and a Quick Start guide.
