Introduction To STM32 ARM Microcontroller With STM HAL Library SW4STM32

STM32 is a family of 32-bit microcontrollers based on the ARM Cortex-M processor core. They offer high performance, low power consumption, and a wide range of peripherals and features. In this article, we will learn how to use the STM HAL library to program the STM32 microcontroller using the SW4STM32 IDE.

The STM HAL library is a hardware abstraction layer that provides a set of functions and macros to simplify the use of the STM32 peripherals. It hides the low-level details of the registers and bit manipulation, and provides a consistent and user-friendly interface for application development. The STM HAL library also supports different levels of optimization, from full-featured to minimal footprint.

The SW4STM32 IDE is an Eclipse-based integrated development environment that supports the STM32 microcontrollers. It provides a graphical interface for project creation, configuration, debugging, and programming. It also integrates various tools such as GCC compiler, GDB debugger, ST-Link utility, CubeMX code generator, and more.

In this article, we will use the STM32F4 Discovery board as an example. This board features an STM32F407VGT6 microcontroller with 1 MB of Flash memory and 192 KB of RAM. It also has various onboard sensors and LEDs, as well as a USB OTG port and a ST-Link/V2 debugger/programmer.

To follow this tutorial, you will need:

An STM32F4 Discovery board

A USB cable

A PC with Windows, Linux, or macOS

The SW4STM32 IDE installed on your PC

The STM HAL library for your microcontroller

In the next sections, we will go through the steps to create a simple project that blinks an LED on the board using the STM HAL library and the SW4STM32 IDE.

How to create a project in SW4STM32

To create a project in SW4STM32, we need to use the STM32CubeMX tool to generate the initial code and configuration for our microcontroller. STM32CubeMX is a graphical tool that allows us to select the peripherals and features of our microcontroller and generate the corresponding initialization code.

To use STM32CubeMX, follow these steps:

Download and install STM32CubeMX from

Launch STM32CubeMX and click on New Project

Select your microcontroller from the list or use the part number search. In our case, we select STM32F407VGTx

Click on Start Project

In the Pinout & Configuration tab, you can configure the peripherals and features of your microcontroller. For this example, we only need to enable the GPIO pin that is connected to the LED on the board. To do this, click on the pin PC13 and select GPIO_Output from the drop-down menu

In the Project Manager tab, you can set the project name, location, and settings. For this example, we use the following settings:

Project Name: STM32F4_Blink

Project Location: any folder of your choice

Toolchain / IDE: SW4STM32

Firmware Package Name and Version: select the latest version available

Generate Under Root: checked

Click on Generate Code

A pop-up window will ask you to open the project in your IDE. Click on Open Project

This will launch SW4STM32 and open the generated project

Congratulations! You have created a project in SW4STM32 using STM32CubeMX. ec8f644aee
