Summary and Info
This book is intended as a hands-on guide for anyone intending to use the ST Microelectronics STM32 family of Cortex-M3 microcontrollers. Over the last six or seven years one of the major trends in microcontroller design is the adoption of the ARM7 and ARM9 as the CPU for general purpose microcontrollers. Today there are some 240 ARM-based microcontrollers available from a wide range of manufacturers. Now ST Microelectronics have launched the STM32, their first microcontroller based on the new ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller core. This device sets new standards of performance and cost, as well as being capable of low power operation and hard real-time control.
