STM32CubeMX Eclipse plug-in for STM32 configuration
and initialization C code generation
Data brief
 Intuitive STM32 microcontroller selection
STM32CubeMX is part of STMicroelectronics
STMCube™ original initiative to ease developers
life by reducing development efforts, time and
cost. STM32Cube covers STM32 portfolio.
 Microcontroller graphical configuration:
– Pinout with automatic conflict resolution
– Clock tree with dynamic validation of
– Peripherals and middleware functional
modes and initialization with dynamic
validation of parameter constraints
– Power sequence with estimate of
consumption results
 C code project generation covering STM32
microcontroller initialization compliant with
IAR™, Keil® and GCC compilers
 Available standalone or through Eclipse plug-in
STM32Cube includes the STM32CubeMX which
is a graphical software configuration tool that
allows generating C initialization code, using
graphical wizards.
It also embeds a comprehensive software
platform, delivered per series (such as
STM32CubeF4 for STM32F4 series). This
platform includes the STM32Cube HAL (an
STM32 abstraction layer embedded software,
ensuring maximized portability across STM32
portfolio), plus a consistent set of middleware
components (RTOS, USB, TCP/IP and graphics).
All embedded software utilities come with a full
set of examples.
STM32CubeMX is an extension of the existing
MicroXplorer tool. It is a graphical tool that allows
configuring STM32 microcontrollers very easily
and generating the corresponding initialization C
code through a step-by-step process.
Step one consists in selecting the
STMicroelectronics STM32 microcontroller that
matches the required set of peripherals.
The user must then configure each required
embedded software thanks to a pinout-conflict
solver, a clock-tree setting helper, a powerconsumption calculator, and a utility performing
MCU peripheral configuration (GPIO, USART,...)
and middleware stacks (USB, TCP/IP,...).
Finally, the user launches the generation of the
initialization C code based on the selected
configuration. This code is ready to be used within
several development environments. The user
code is kept at the next code generation.
