Where to start? This is not a blog article about how to work with STM32CubeMX. There is plenty of information available on that topic on st.com. This blog rather tries to describe the specific challenges that may arise when trying to use STM32CubeMX with TrueSTUDIO. Do not miss the FAQ at the end which are the most common issues that first-time users run into. But first a table of content and some concept definition and orientation...
In the beginning of 2018 we released the first ever version of "TrueSTUDIO for STM32". It was called version 9.0.0 to highlight that it is a major shift from old products. Version 9.0.2 came in April to provide new STM32 target support. End of last week TrueSTUDIO for STM32 version 9.1.0 was released. Read this article to learn more about new target support and updates made to the ST-LINK GDB-server.
This information is only relevant for customers of TrueSTUDIO v.5.3.1 Pro and earlier versions.
ST recently released STM32CubeProgrammer, a software tool allowing users to flash STM32 devices through the SWD/JTAG debug interface and via the UAR/USB bootloader interface. STM32CubeProgrammer can be integrated with Atollic TrueSTUDIO. This is how and why!
We made a promise in December 2017 to release a TrueSTUDIO for STM32 in early 2018. Today we are happy to announce that, after weeks of refactoring efforts, we have released a free TrueSTUDIO for STM32 tool with the full Pro feature set unlocked to all STM32 users!
If you have not yet heard, STMicroelectronics has acquired Atollic!
If you are an STM32 developer and an Atollic TrueSTUDIO user, think of it as an early holiday present. What was the paid Pro version of TrueSTUDIO will soon be made available to STM32 developers at no charge.
ST’s and Atollic’s engineers are already at work on building a fully integrated software solution. The next-gen version of TrueSTUDIO will feature even tighter integration with the STM32 ecosystem
Atollic TrueSTUDIO Pro (v.8.1.0 and later version) have extended kernel-aware debugging support by allowing to visualise FreeRTOS run-time statistics. FreeRTOS can optionally be configured to collect information about each tasks execution time. In Atollic TrueSTUDIO the execution time for each task can be visualised as the percentage of the total execution time for the application using the kernel-aware debug views for FreeRTOS.
In this article we describe how to make the run-time statistics work in Atollic TrueSTUDIO Pro 8.1.0.
Join us from 13-15 September 2017 in Eindhoven to learn the skills you need to be a professional embedded developer. We are offering an intensive 3-day, hands-on training course in ARM Cortex-M development. This training will teach you everything worth knowing about the Cortex-M cores and the GNU compiler and debugger tool chain. You will also learn the ins- and outs- of the ECLIPSE® IDE, and how to use it for advanced Cortex-M development and debugging.
Learn the essential skills you need to be a professional embedded developer with this hands-on training course.
Many embedded developers new to ARM Cortex-M devices are unaware of the powerful debug capabilities these devices enable in their silicon design. Professional IDEs, like Atollic TrueSTUDIO Pro, leverage these and provide debugging power any professional embedded developer should be aware of.
In this blog post, I will explain how Cortex-M cores enable highly useful debugger features for “live” visualization of variable values in real-time.
Most industries change over time, and some are even significantly disrupted. I would argue the embedded industry is quite conservative and resistant to change. For example, in spite of all the hardware and connectivity changes over the last 20 years the tasks of an embedded developer haven’t changed much.

In this blog post, I will give you a difficult coding task to crack. One of my colleagues presented it to the Atollic development team over a coffee break a few days ago, and I thought this could be an interesting problem for other developers to discuss over the coffee break as well! Are you up for a challenge to prove you are an expert developer?
Iot devices are being trusted to handle more critical data all the time, making it vital for the data not to become corrupted. This has increased the need for reliable file systems that protect data in the case of unexpected power loss, which is common in these devices.
