Comprehensive Software Simplifies MCU Programming

STMicroelectronics’ STM32CubeProgrammer (STM32CUBEPROG) software tool delivers device-programming and firmware upgrade for STM32 microcontrollers (MCUs) in a unified, multi-platform, and user-configurable environment. Compatible with Windows, Linux, or MacOS operating systems, the software can program the STM32’s on-chip Flash/RAM or external memories using various file formats. Further capabilities include whole-memory or sector erase and programming microcontroller option bytes. Users can also generate encrypted files for secure programming (Secure Firmware Install/Update) to authenticate production and protect intellectual property.

 

Users can program the MCUs through the devices’ Single-Wire Debug (SWD) or JTAG debugging ports, or the bootloader port such as UART and USB. Hence the STM32CubeProgrammer brings the individual capabilities of the ST Visual Programmer, DFUse Device Firmware Update tool, Flash Loader, and ST-Link utility together within the STM32Cube ecosystem. ST will extend the STM32CubeProgrammer’s capabilities by adding programming access via microcontroller I2C and CAN ports.

Furthermore, the STM32CubeProgrammer provides many opportunities to customize and configure features, using either the Graphical User Interface (GUI) or the Command-Line Interface (CLI). Also, this all-in-one tool can be used in standalone mode or integrated and controlled from a custom application. Programming can be done manually or automated using scripts. If you are chomping on the bit for more details and a free download, both are available on the STM32CubeProgrammer page. And if you still need more, a datasheet is available.
