STMicroelectronics : ARM AND STMICROELECTRONICS JOIN WITH MATHWORKS TO ENABLE CODE GENERATION, DEBUG AND MODELLING FOR STM32



STMicroelectronics : ARM AND STMICROELECTRONICS JOIN WITH MATHWORKS TO ENABLE
       CODE GENERATION, DEBUG AND MODELLING FOR STM32 MICROCONTROLLERS

Offering First Ever MATLAB, Simulink, and Embedded Coder Support for Cortex-M
                             processor-based MCUs

 

Cambridge, UK and Geneva, Switzerland - February 19, 2013 - ARM and
STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving
customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, have announced the
availability of the first ever Embedded Coder support, with MATLAB and
Simulink, for ARM® Cortex(TM)-M processor-based systems.

The joint project between ST and ARM is fully supported by MathWorks and
enables software developers to create their algorithms in MATLAB and Simulink
and then target, integrate, debug and test those models in a Processor In the
Loop (PIL) simulation. The generated C code from Embedded Coder runs on an
STM32 Evaluation Board and the debugger of the Keil(TM) Microcontroller
Development Kit (MDK-ARM(TM)) interfaces directly with Simulink, further
simplifying the code integration.
"Based on strong customer demand for MATLAB and Simulink support, ST
aggressively developed the capabilities to go beyond pure Cortex-M processor
support by creating additional peripheral blocks, further simplifying the PIL
process," said Michel Buffa, General Manager Microcontroller Division,
STMicroelectronics. "Moreover, enabling DSP-standard tools to run on our
Cortex-M processor-based STM32 products helps our customers address a broader
spectrum of opportunities."

"This initiative enables developers to easily and efficiently develop and
explore numerous models before generating optimized code for their Cortex
processor-based projects," said Richard York, Director of Embedded Systems
Marketing, ARM. "The combination of MATLAB and Simulink, and the Keil MDK-ARM
brings together two of the best software development toolchains.  This is good
news for developers as it will enable them to accelerate the time to market
for innovative Cortex processor-based systems and products."

"MathWorks is pleased to have worked with ARM and ST to put in place the first
Embedded Coder code generation support for Cortex-M processor-based systems
and the Keil MDK-ARM," said Paul Barnard, design automation marketing
director, MathWorks. "This is a very important first step in providing a
smooth design flow for engineers using Model-Based Design with MATLAB and
Simulink to develop highly optimized Cortex-M processor-based systems."

Demonstration:
A demonstration of the new capabilities will be shown at the Embedded World
2013 event in Nuremberg (26-28 February) on the ARM (4-336), ST (4-140) and
MathWorks (4-110) stands.

Availability:
The new Embedded Coder support is now available in beta form direct from ARM
for early adopters and is planned to be made available for general download in
April.
