STM32 Primer2 allows users to quickly turn a concept into an attractive-looking demonstrator

STMicroelectronics STM32 Primer for collaborative embedded development allows users to quickly turn a concept into an attractive-looking demonstrator. The latest STM32 Primer2 from STMicroelectronics is about the size of a cellphone, and comes with a 128×160-pixel color touchscreen, a joystick/push button, extension connector and pre-loaded sample applications. There is also a built-in USB port, a MicroSD card slot, and other features, such as an accelerometer and an infrared transmitter/receiver, that allow users to quickly add numerous extra capabilities and functions to their applications. All of these components are easy to manage through the built-in software framework, the open-source CircleOS.

Using the STM32 Primer2, users can present a high-quality prototype, rather than a conventional engineering development board, to create a better first impression with minimal design-start investment. The STM32 Primer2 enables product developers with diverse skills to access the power of ST’s advanced 32-bit STM32 microcontroller, which is available in three families targeting cost-effective, high performance, or USB-based applications. The STM32 Primer2 is in production now, and is available from all ST distributors at a recommended price of $49 each.
