In a first part, this article shows the STM32MP157 line block diagram. STM32MP157 belongs to STM32MP1 Series (refer to the list of part numbers provided below).
The second part of this article digs into technical aspects, and provides entry points to:
- STM32MP15 documentation
- articles dedicated to Internal peripherals that make the transition towards the software frameworks required to control these peripherals
- the list of boards supporting STM32MP15 devices
- the supported software distributions, that can be dowloaded into the STM32MP15 device.
STM32MP15 microprocessors are based on the Arm®Cortex®-A7 dual core. They support Trustzone mode for secure operations, a Vivante GPU and an Arm®Cortex®-M4 coprocessor.
Arm® Cortex®-M4 coprocessor and its peripheral set are directly inherited from the STM32 MCU family .
