The STM32 F0 series has been announced at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany, and is the first STM32 series based on the ARM Cortex™-M0 processor. The product's low-power design and low cost make it suitable for application fields that were traditionally occupied by 8- or 16-bit MCUs such as medical diagnostics equipment, white goods or intelligent sensor applications.
The long-standing cooperation between STMicroelectronics and ARM enables engineers to immediately use the MDK-ARM development kit in projects based on the STM32 F0 series. The MDK-ARM development kit combines the state of the art ARM C/C++ Compiler, the µVision4™ IDE and debugger as well as advanced trace functionality and the RTX RTOS in one easy to use package. The MDK-Professional Middleware libraries provide excellent support for the sophisticated peripherals of the STM32 F1, F2, and F4 series, enabling developers to concentrate on the unique features of their embedded applications.
The STM32 F0 device support is included in the current version 4.23 of the MDK-ARM development kit.
