STMicroelectronics launches quality label for MCU family
Semiconductor company STMicroelectronics is increasing the market appeal of its STM32 microcontroller family by launching the MadeForSTM32 label for qualified, reviewed and approved products from ST Partners in the development ecosystem.
Engineers designing with microcontrollers — the tiny electronic brains inside all kinds of smart objects — rely on the ecosystem that provides configuration and development tools, ready-to-use software examples and libraries, and circuit boards to prototype their applications and bring them into production. For many designers, the quality and effectiveness of the ecosystem is an important factor when choosing among microcontroller manufacturers for current and future designs.
ST’s STM32 family offers an extensive and expanding ecosystem that provides important software products and evaluation boards for developing with STM32 devices. Addressing the aim of helping customers find the best solution for their design, ST is launching the MadeForSTM32 program to review and qualify offerings from ST Partners within the STM32 ecosystem. The label ensures that all products within the ecosystem are of consistently high quality.
“Our new MadeForSTM32 label provides robust assurances for product designers by highlighting our assessment and approval of the quality and performance of third-party ecosystem products, as well as the customer support available,” said Daniel Colonna, Marketing Director, Microcontroller Division, STMicroelectronics.
“There is added value for our ecosystem partners too, with branding using the MadeForSTM32 logo for approved products and literature, promotional opportunities and access to the results of our technical evaluation to help drive continuous product improvement. The benefits of this program to both engineers and partners encourage significant expansion of the STM32 ecosystem with high-quality products.”
Any ecosystem partner can submit a product for evaluation and, after a successful review and approval, use the MadeForSTM32 label. Basic criteria require IDEs to support all STM32 microcontrollers and offer a demonstration or evaluation version that may be time- or code-size limited.
SEGGER embOS and RoweBots UNISON RTOS real-time operating systems have already been assessed and endorsed to become the first MadeForSTM32 approved pieces of embedded software. Other products are currently being evaluated.
