Newark element14 partner Embest has collaborated with STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STMicroelectronics), a global leader in semiconductors, to align the free and open-source CooCox toolchain. This toolchain comes packed with the latest series of STM32 microcontrollers and exposes all performance and feature possibilities. In addition, it is enabled by the more than 600 microcontroller-wide STM32 portfolio for developers.
CooCox is a free/open ARM® Cortex®-M software development tool chain that includes software tools, code components, hardware designs and community support for ARM Cortex microcontrollers. Developers using CooCox software tools can create, compile and program their STM32 microcontrollers by easily choosing their target device from a list of supported devices.
The CooCox toolchain features additional components, such as an RTOS and peripheral drivers, saving engineers time and money when developing their designs based on ST’s extensive line of products.
The entire software toolchain, along with rich community support, is available free of charge at element14.com/coocox. Software will also be added shortly to the Design Center, an industry-leading platform for searching and comparing development tools to support early st
