1. STM32CubeIDE 1.16.0 - MPU support[edit source]

1.1. Supported features[edit source]

This version of STM32CubeIDE provides support

  • for the Arm® Cortex®-M core, contained in the STM32MP15x lines More info.png and STM32MP25x lines More info.png
  • for OpenSTLinux-v5.1 and Linux® user space projects in 32-bit and 64-bit,
  • and for projects running on Arm® Cortex®-A: STM32CubeMP13 MPU Package projects or Project Utilities.
  • GCC 12 as a default toolchain
  • Updated to Eclipse® 2023-12

1.1.1. For Arm® Cortex®-M core[edit source]

It provides :

  • STM32MP1 & STM32MP2 sample or board selection,
  • Device configuration,
  • Target Status widget, with visibility management,
  • Console management with capability to manually set-up non-ST console instead of automatic detection,
  • Arm®Cortex®-M project creation, compilation and debug in two modes:
    • Engineering mode, with Arm®Cortex®-M firmware download via JTAG/SWD on STM32MP1,
      • redirection of semi-hosting on TCP port with openOCD
    • Production mode, with Arm® Cortex®-M firmware download :
      • Via Ethernet link to the LAN or point to point,
      • Via Ethernet-over-USB for point-to-point connection,
  • Live variable watch view,
  • System analysis and real-time tracing (SWV),
  • Check of ST-LINK firmware version,
  • SFRs view support for register access,
  • Remote target path project property (for production mode),
  • Remote system explorer configuration,
  • TCP console for semihosting output

1.1.2. For Arm® Cortex®-A core[edit source] With OpenSTlinux distribution[edit source]

STM32CubeIDE version 1.16.0 brings support for OpenSTLinux-v5.1 projects with two modes: 32-bit for STM32MP1 and 64-bit for STM32MP2, on Linux® workstation only, including:

  • Installation of Yocto SDK in 32-bit or 64-bit, external to STM32CubeIDE only - no dedicated Eclipse plugin,
  • Installation of OpenSTLinux projects sources for STM32MP1 (32-bit) or STM32MP2 (64-bit), two Eclipse plugins:
    • Linux®, project with:
      • Standard build target (such as all, dtb, module and others), including STM32CubeMX-generated device tree,
      • Support for running target update via "STM32 Cortex-A Linux Deployment" running configuration,
      • Support of GCNANO project with build target
    • TF-A project with standard build target including FIP image generation,
    • U-boot project with standard build target,
    • OP-TEE project with standard build target,
      • Support for OP-TEE trusted application creation and debug,
  • Support of creation, build and debug of Linux® user space project types including:
    • executable,
    • static library,
    • shared library,
  • Debug via "weston" user for executable using GTK library With STM32CubeMP13 MPU Package[edit source]
  • Support of creation, build and debug of STM32CubeMP13 MPU Package projects project types including executable only With Project Utilities[edit source]
  • Support of import, build and debug of STM32 Projects Utilities in 32-bit and 64-bit
