Development toolchains[edit]

IDE, compiler, linker, debugger, flashing (in alphabetical order):

  • Ac6 System Workbench for STM32[note 1][1][2] (based on Eclipse and the GNU GCC toolchain with direct support for all ST-provided evaluation boards, Eval, Discovery and Nucleo, debug with ST-LINK)
  • ARM Development Studio 5 by ARM Ltd.[3]
  • Atmel Studio[note 2] by Atmel[4] (based on Visual Studio[5] and GNU GCC Toolchain[6])

  • CrossWorks for ARM by Rowley[10]
  • Dave by Infineon. For XMC processors only. Includes project wizard, detailed register decoding and a code library still under development.[11]
  • DRT by SOMNIUM Technologies.[12] Based on GCC toolchain and proprietary linker technology. Available as a plugin for Atmel Studio and an Eclipse-based IDE.
  • Eclipse as IDE, with GNU Tools as compiler/linker, e.g. aided with GNU ARM Eclipse Plug-ins[13]
