Topic: how to go to STM32 / Arm (Read 5 times) previous topic - next topic


I'd like to play around with higher end processors like the STM32.

Any idea what the next logical step is for me?
What IDE?

Is there some basic article anywhere to help me make this jump?

I use the Rowley CrossWorks IDE for ARM development:


It's excellent, with good support.

The ST Discovery boards are very good value, and ideal for learning about ARM devices.

Do you often go to the Ford dealer and talk to them about upgrading to a Chevy? Do you think that they keep a lot of material on hand to help you with that process?

Now, if you went to the Chevy dealer and talked to them about upgrading from a Ford, I suspect you'd get much better treatment.


How does one choose from so many if these IDE's?  
I'm sure that one is nice, but it's $$ - the free ones not usable?

As far as upgrading, I'm not. Ardunos have a great place for the low end, and I want both ends of the spectrum. A second car if you will.
Can you suggest a "Chevy" forum?

The free ones are usable, but most have restrictions and I've found them much harder to use than the Rowley tools (I also use their MSP430 software). Try them and see which you prefer.

I run the LPC2000 Yahoo group for users of the NXP ARM devices:
