STMicroelectronics has extended support for Microsoft Azure RTOS in the STM32Cube development environment — covering additional high performance, mainstream, ultra-low-power and wireless microcontrollers (MCUs) from the STM32 family.
Users can leverage the qualities of Azure RTOS, the convenience of STM32Cube, and the flexibility of the STM32 family to optimize MCU properties, now choosing from more than 700 MCUs in the STM32 Arm Cortex-M portfolio.
With this extension, there are dedicated software packages for mainstream STM32G0, ultra-low-power STM32L4, STM32L4+, STM32L5, and STM32U5; high-power STM32G4, STM32F4, STM32F7, and STM32H7; wireless STM32WL; and STM32WB MCUs.
STM32Cube simplifies developing with Azure RTOS as a standalone package or as add-on configurable components. The Azure RTOS suite is fully supported in the STM32CubeIDE tool and the STM32CubeMX initializer, which can directly configure Azure RTOS components.
ST has added free code examples that help accelerate development and includes several demonstration projects that are ready to run on STM32 Nucleo boards, Discovery kits, and evaluation boards. The code can be alternatively accessed on STMicroelectronics Github.
The Azure RTOS suite comprises a comprehensive and consistent middleware offer for embedded projects. It includes the ThreadX real-time operating system, which has a minimal memory footprint, and the FileX fault-tolerant FAT file system with LevelX wear leveling for NAND and NOR Flash memories.
The suite also comes with NetX Duo industrial-grade TCP/IP stacks, and the USBX USB stack with host and device support.
