Are you a embedded Systems maker/developer with some knowledge on STM32 microcontrollers from STMicroelectronics, and also a Arduino fan, Cheer up now, there's a Arduino embedded board powered by ARM Cortex processor powered STM32F469 microcontroller chip from STMicroelectronics. With the new board named STAR Otto baseboard (STAR (ST and Arduino) program) has MIPI DSI display interface along with an open-source software graphics library.
STAR Otto features pre-integrated Wi-Fi wireless link and audio, making it a good choice for maker and electronic hobbyists community for building Smart Home and Smart Industry applications.
ST and Arduino are further co-operating in making available Arduino shields such as DSI-display and NFC-reader shields which are planned for Q2 2016 and a Sensor shield is scheduled to be available in H2 2016. Already some of the STM32 Nucleo expansion boards and software libraries, including those for environmental sensors and proximity detection been ported to the Arduino Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and can seamlessly be used with the new STAR Otto baseboard.
“Arduino has grown by encouraging kids – from 10 to 100 years old – to learn electronics and programming to make projects by building on the learnings of others and now we’re excited to add the STM32 family into the Maker community, to broaden learning with new features such as audio input/output and touchscreen display control,” said Federico Musto, CEO & President of Arduino S.r.L. “We fully expect commercial IoT companies to also use these new features to easily design new smart home devices and applications, or improve products that drive industrial automation and control.”
