STMicroelectronics says its third-generation microcontroller development platform, the EvoPrimer, simplifies product design for customers using STM8 and STM32 microcontrollers.

The EvoPrimer platform, built using lessons learned from the company's Primer and Primer2 kits, is billed as the industry's first low-cost, hand-held tools for rapid prototyping with the STM8 and STM32. ST said EvoPrimer further boost flexibility and reduces customers' overall investment in tools by providing a common base unit with interchangeable low-cost microcontroller modules, or target boards.

ST is offering target boards with support for STM8L ultra low-power 8bit microcontrollers, as well as the 32bit STM32F Connectivity and Performance Lines families. Other target boards to be released are designed for the ultra-low-power STM32L and the ultra-high-performance STM32 F-2 series featuring advanced 90nm process technology.

The target boards connect to functions onboard the EvoPrimer base unit, including an LCD touchscreen, a joystick, a MEMS accelerometer, a microphone, loudspeaker and jack, a Micro SD card connector, and a Li-ion battery with charge-management circuitry. Extra functions may be added through an integrated extension connector. Integration with the CircleOS operating system gives designers the ability to use services that simplify use of the microcontroller.
