Each development kit jump-starts product designs to assist faster delivery into markets that can range from a few hundred units to millions of units, and span applications that include wearable wellness monitors, environmental sensors, smart meters, industrial controllers, smart-building equipment, and many more.
STM32 Nucleo expansion boards are available from ST, including motion sensing, microphone, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and other wireless connectivity, Near-Field Communication (NFC), digital audio, or motor-control boards.
The STM32 Discovery kits provide an integrated development platform, associating STM32 microcontrollers with on-board components such as ST MEMS microphones, proximity and motion sensors, or an LCD, for demonstration of specific device features and use cases. A similar ecosystem supports designers using the 8-bit STM8 microcontrollers.
In addition, a broad range of solution-oriented evaluation tools provide application-focused features to help designers respond quickly to opportunities in fast-moving markets such as smart building, healthcare and wellness, home appliances, digital consumer products, smart industry, lighting and motor control.
