Plano, Tx – July 13, 2009: Keil announce immediate support for the STMicroelectronics STM32 Connectivity Line in the Keil™ MDK-ARM (Microcontroller Development Kit) and RL-ARM (Real-Time Library). Keil has also introduced the new MCBSTM32C™ evaluation board and starter kit.
The STM32 Connectivity Line is based on the ARM® Cortex™-M3 processor and features full-speed USB On-The-Go (OTG), dual CAN2.0B interfaces, and 10/100 Ethernet including hardware support for IEEE1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP). The devices share common peripherals with other STM32 families, thereby allowing easy project migration, and have up to 256KB Flash and 64KB SRAM.
The latest release of MDK-ARM supports all STM32 devices and includes set-up files, device-specific views, and example projects. MDK provides a complete development environment for creating, debugging, and verifying embedded software applications. It features the industry-standard ARM® compiler, the Keil µVision™ IDE, and sophisticated debug and data trace capabilities that utilize the advanced features of the Cortex-M3 processor. It is specifically optimized for single-chip, high performance devices such as the STM32.
The Keil RL-ARM provides a comprehensive set of middleware components which enable complex applications to be easily developed using libraries for TCP/IP networking, CAN, and USB. The latest version of RL-ARM supports the STM32 Connectivity Line device with tailored libraries and example projects.
The Keil MCBSTM32C evaluation board features the STM32F107VC microcontroller, 10/100 Ethernet, 2 CAN, 2 serial ports, and a QVGA LCD with touch screen. The MCBSTM32C is also available as a starter kit which includes the ULINK-ME USB-JTAG adapter.
Keil, makes C compilers, macro assemblers, real-time kernels, debuggers, simulators, integrated environments, and evaluation boards for ARM7™/ARM9™/Cortex-M3, XC16x/C16x/ST10, 251, and 8051 processor-based microcontroller families. Products available from Keil include embedded development tools, evaluation software, product updates, application notes, example code and technical support.
