CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom & GENEVA -- December 19, 2013

ARM®, the world’s leading semiconductor IP supplier, and STMicroelectronics, a
global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of
electronic applications today announced that ST has joined the ARM mbed™
Project. The agreement will give developers using ST’s STM32 microcontroller
range, based on the ARM Cortex®-M processor series, free access to the mbed
software, developmenttools and online collaboration platform, enabling them
to realize their own visions for the new wave of intelligent electronics

ARM mbed is a collaborative industry project to nurture the Internet of Things
(IoT) and meet the needs of a new professional developer audience. It delivers
free tools and fundamental open-source hardware and software building blocks
for the rapid development of innovative ARM-based devices. The project also
enables the easy integration of connectivity, sensor and cloud service
software components and the tools and support for a dynamic, collaborative
developer and partner ecosystem.

ST’s STM32 microcontroller range starts at starts at just $0.32, and the MCUs
address the full spectrum of applications from simple products to entire
platform solutions. Combined with the mbed platform, this offers software
portability, diverse connectivity options and a rapid development approach for
a full range of Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

“The mbed project is bringing together leading technology companies to create
a step change in productivity for embedded device development,” said Simon
Ford, director, IoT Platforms, ARM. “We have learnt from the web and
smartphone revolutions that by building an open-source software platform with
reusable software components and free development and collaboration tools, we
can enable the creation of IoT and smart devices on a previously unimagined

“By joining the mbed project, ST is enabling developers across diverse markets
to quickly prototype and create new products based on leading-edge STM32
microcontrollers,” said Daniel Colonna, Microcontrollers Marketing Manager at
ST. “The support for mbed will be launched in Q1 with a brand new line of
STM32 microcontroller development boards to provide a consistent way to
develop with devices across the STM32 portfolio at hardware and software

The first mbed-enabled STM32 development boards will be launched in February
2014, and support for other boards and targets will follow. Find out more and
