1 Introduction to STM32Cube
STM32Cube™ provides comprehensive embedded software libraries and tools, significantly reducing development effort, time and cost.
STM32Cube™ is fully integrated in STM32MPU_Embedded_Software_distribution and consists of (usable together or independently):
- STM32CubeMP1 Firmware Package embedded software libraries, including:
- The Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL), enabling portability between different STM32 devices via standardized API calls
- The Low-Layer API (LL), a light-weight, optimized, expert oriented set of APIs designed for runtime efficiency and so enhanced performance
- A collection of Middleware components, like FreeRTOS, OpenAMP (depending on the MPU series)
- A collection of Examples, running on an MPU board and allowing demonstration of a basic implementation of features from a set of IPs
- STM32CubeMX tool, including :
- Configuration and C code generation for pin multiplexing, clock tree, peripherals and middleware setup with graphical wizards
- Generation of IDE-ready projects for an integrated development environment tool chain
- Direct import of STM32 Cube embedded software libraries from st.com
- Integrated updater to keep STM32CubeMX up-to-date
2 STM32CubeMP1 package overview
The STM32CubeMP1 Package(also named STM32Cube Firmware Package) is the embedded software part of STM32Cube™, running on the Arm® Cortex®-M processor (for example Arm Cortex-M4).
3 Software architecture overview
The STM32CubeMP1 Package is based on the STM32Cube MCU package but has been adapted to a Linux Framework (OpenSTLinux).
STM32CubeMP1 Package introduces new components such as OpenAMP and RessourceManager that allow easy communication and ressource sharing between main processors running with Linux on Cortex A, and MCU coprocessors running on Cortex M.
- OpenAMP is a library implementing the remote processor service framework (RPMsg) which is a virtio-based messaging bus that allows a local processor to communicate with remote processors available on the system.
- ResourceManager is a utility that handles peripheral-accessibility requests and system-resource configuration.
The figure below gives an overview of the STM32CubeMP1_architecture.
4 STM32CubeMP1 Package Content
STM32CubeMP1 Package offers a highly portable Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL), built around a generic and modular architecture. Moreover it offers a full support for all the STM32MP1 Series devices.
This HAL allows the upper layers, middleware and application, to implement functions independently of the STM32MP1 device used. This improves the library code re-usability and guarantees easy portability from one device to another.
STM32CubeMP1 Package also offers a highly portable Low Layer interface (LL), which allows a quick, simple and optimized API to access the STM32MP1 registers.
The STM32CubeMP1 Package is provided with the structure shown below.
The Drivers folder contains all the STM32Cube Drivers, including BSP and HAL drivers
The STM32CubeMP1 Package provides all driver user manuals:
- The BSP user manual for EVAL board is available in STM32Cube_FW_MP1\Drivers\BSP\STM32MP15xx_EVAL : STM32MP15xx_EVAL_BSP_User_Manual.chm
- The BSP user manual for DISCO board is available in STM32Cube_FW_MP1\Drivers\BSP\STM32MP15xx_DISCO : STM32MP15xx_DISCO_BSP_User_Manual.chm
- The HAL user manual is available in STM32Cube_FW_MP1\Drivers\STM32MP1xx_HAL_Driver : STM32MP157Cxx_CM4_User_Manual.chm
The Middlewares folder contains all available STM32Cube Middlewares including FreeRTOS and OpenAMP
The Projects folder contains all STM32Cube Examples that are classified in 3 levels as described below :
- Level 0 : Examples. It uses only the HAL drivers without any middleware component. They are available in directory Firmware/Projects/<board_name>/Examples.
- Level 1 : Applications. It provides typical use cases of each middleware component. They are available in directory Firmware/Projects/<board_name>/Applications.
- Level 2 : Demonstrations. It involves all the HAL, BSP and middleware components. They are available in directory Firmware/Projects/<board_name>/Demonstrations
A Template folder is available in Firmware/Projects/<board_name>/Templates and allows quick creation and building of any firmware application on a given board.
All examples respect the same structure :
├── OpenAMP_TTY_echo │ ├── readme.txt describes the example behavior and the setup required to make it work │ ├── Inc contains all header files │ ├── Remoteproc (optional): contains specific files related to the use of Linux® remote processor framework to load STM32Cube Cortex-M firmware │ ├── Src contains all the sources code files │ └── SW4STM32 contains the preconfigured project for Eclipse IDE

5 Getting started with STM32CubeMP1 Package
STM32CubeMP1 Package is delivered with STM32MPU Embedded Software distribution and is then provided in the 3 software packages: Starter Package, Developer Package and Distribution Package.
- Starter Package: provides pre-built examples, applications and demonstration firmware (for demo only).
- Developer Package: provides the full STM32CubeMP1 source code for development, including dedicated tools (IDE and so on).
- Distribution Package: it provides the full integration of STM32CubeMP1 package in OpenSTLinux distribution for software distribution.
In the following sections, we take the assumption that you have already installed all the materials related to the package for your board. Please read the following notes carefully:
- Please read the article Which Package better suits your needs for further information on all packages.
- Please select your board Category:STM32 MPU boards to get the right package materials (software, hardware, documentation, and so on)
5.2 Introduction to boot mode
The STM32MP1 can be run in 2 differents boot modes : Production boot mode (default mode) and Engineering boot mode
- Production boot mode: Firmware is loaded into the coprocessor by the master processor (Cortex A7 - Flash Memory boot mode), this means:
- System ressources are managed directly by OpenSTLinux (clocks, regulators, and so on)
- the pre-built pieces of firmware are provided/downloaded in an OpenSTLinux image or file system
- the pre-built firmware is launched on the coprocessor through the Linux Remote Proc component
- Cortex-A firmware (Linux OS) is in charge of loading the Cortex-M firmware
- Engineering boot mode is used specifically for firmware testing directly on the coprocessor, this means:
- all ressources are managed directly in the example source code (clocks, regulators, and so on)
- the firmware can be loaded directly from your favorite IDE
Most of the examples can be used in Engineering boot mode (except those that require firmware running on a Cortex-A7, such as the OpenAMP examples)
5.3 Introduction to user file system for M4 examples
The folder structure of Linux User File System for STM32Cube M4 firmware is described below for each STM32MP1 board (STM32MP157C-EV1 and STM32MP157C-DK2):
5.4 Starter Package for STM32CubeMP1
Starter Package allows you to launch and run, on an M4 core, a set of examples from Linux console (How_to_get_Terminal). These examples are available in the Linux File System (userfs: /usr/local), and have been built with the STM32Cube MP1 software Package (pre-built firmwares)
- Please refer to the Starter Package for STM32MP15 Eval Board or Starter Package for STM32MP15 Discovery Board for all the information describing how to install the Starter Package
|Please make sure that you have installed the Starter Package related to your STM32MP1 board|
5.4.2 How to run the examples
After Flashing images onto your board, you need to open a Linux console (please refer to How_to_get_Terminal), and follow the steps below:
184.108.40.206 Select boot mode for m4 examples
When booting the Linux image, you need to select a dedicated device tree configuration for m4 examples, which allows the allocation of specific clock and pin control assignments related to M4 examples.
This means that you need to select the boot mode stm32mp157c-ev1-m4-examples-sdcard during the U-Boot stage, as described in the following log:

5.6.6 How to rebuild an example with OpenEmbedded
If you need to provide a new software Linux image with a Linux file system updated with your changes, please follow the instructions below:
- Make your changes in STM32MP1 Firmware source code (in <path_to_your_workspace>/sources/m4projects-stm32mp1/stm32cube_fw_mp1)
- Go to the build folder
Board $> cd <path_to_your_workspace>/build-<name_of_distro>
- Clean the m4projects build folder
Board $> bitbake m4projects-stm32mp1 -f -c cleanall
- Rebuild the recipe m4projects
Board $> bitbake m4projects-stm32mp1
- Rebuild the image
Board $> bitbake st-image-weston
5.6.7 How to download an image
- Please refer to Flashing_the_built_image to obtain all the information on how to Flash a new image on the STM32MP1 board
5.7 Logging in production mode
On top of all the different tools supporting STM32CubeMP1 debugging, the different examples have integrated a way to log STM32CubeMP1 firmware visible from Linux (so only valid for production mode).
A resource table entry is dedicated for that, see: How_to_add_trace_for_the_log_buffer.
- "__LOG_TRACE_IO_" preprocessor flag needs to be defined
- The logs done with log_info() or log_err() functions will be available in Linux sysfs file: "/sys/kernel/debug/remoteproc/remoteproc0/trace0"
These logs can be retrieved after a firmware crash: refer to How to retrieve Cortex-M4 logs after crash for more information.
