STM32CubeMP15 Package release note - v1.6.0

Applicable for STM32MP15x lines

This article aims to describe the content of the software release included in the STM32CubeMP15 Package / STM32CubeMP1 Package (a.k.a., STM32CubeMP15 firmware / STM32CubeMP1 firmware), version v1.6.0.

1. Delivery purpose and scope[edit source]

The STM32CubeMP15 Package is a software package running on Arm® Cortex®-M4 processors and is a fundamental part of the STM32MPU Embedded Software distribution.

This release includes:

  • The STM32Cube HAL: STM32 abstraction layer embedded software ensuring maximized portability across the STM32 portfolio. HAL APIs are available for all peripherals.
  • Low-layer APIs (LL APIs) offering a fast lightweight expert-oriented layer that is closer to the hardware than the HAL.
    LL APIs are only available for a limited set of peripherals.
  • A consistent set of middleware components such as FreeRTOSTM and OpenAMP.
  • All embedded software utilities delivered with a full set of examples.

It also includes:

  • BSP for the STM32MP157x-EV1 Evaluation board More info green.png and the STM32MP157x-DK2 Discovery kit More info green.png (button and LEDs only)
  • Multi-core components
  • OpenAMP
  • ResourceManager
  • CoproSync
  • Projects: several projects ( examples, applications and demonstration firmware) are implemented in different IDEs.
  • STM32CubeIDE IDE delivered by ST
  • All the STM32MP157C-DK2 Warning.png and STM32MP157C-EV1 Warning.png projects are available on STM32CubeIDE.
  • EWARM (version 8.32.3 and laters)
  • Most of the STM32MP157C-DK2 Warning.png projects are ported on EWARM.
  • MDK-ARM (Pack Keil®.STM32MP1xx_DFP.1.1.0.pack + MDK-ARM 5.27 and laters)
  • Most of the STM32MP157C-DK2 Warning.png projects are ported on MDK-ARM.
  • System Workbench for STM32 toolchain (SW4STM32): now deprecated
  • This IDE is no longer supported by STMicroelectronics, the reference is now STM32CubeIDE.
  • All the SW4STM32 projects are removed from this release but these projects were already ported on STM32CubeIDE.

2. Intended Audience[edit source]

The targeted audience is STM32 MPU customers and partners.

3. Licensing[edit source]

All licenses applicable to STM32CubeMP1 package are available here.

4. Supported devices[edit source]
