STMicroelectronics launches EvoPrimer platform for STM8, STM32 users

Provides common base unit with interchangeable low-cost microcontroller modules, or target boards

By CBR Staff Writer

STMicroelectronics, a provider of microcontrollers, has launched EvoPrimer platform a third-generation development platform for STM8 and STM32 microcontrollers users.

EvoPrimer platform is designed on the experience from ST’s Primer and Primer2 kits hand-held tools for rapid prototyping with the STM8 and STM32.

It increases flexibility and lowers users’ investment in tools by providing a common base unit with interchangeable low-cost microcontroller modules, or target boards, the company said.

The company claims this flexibility provides a quick and cost-effective way to evaluate alternative variants from the large STM8 and STM32 families.

Target boards are available now to support STM8L ultra low-power 8-bit microcontrollers, as well as the 32-bit STM32F Connectivity and Performance Lines families.

Additional target boards are soon to be introduced for the ultra low-power STM32L and the ultra high-performance STM32 F-2 series featuring advanced 90nm process technology.

The target boards connect readily to functions on board the EvoPrimer base unit, including an LCD touchscreen, a joystick, a MEMS accelerometer, a microphone, loudspeaker and jack, a Micro SD card connector, and a Li-ion battery with charge-management circuitry.

EvoPrimer is also integrated with the CircleOS operating system, which provides services that save designers having to understand all the complexities of the microcontroller.
