We just released two new videos to celebrate the recent availabilities of our new STM32H747 dual-core microcontroller and the STM32H750B Value Line. They are the first STM32H7 with two cores (Cortex-M7 and M4) and the first with only 128 kB of Flash, respectively. Their release last month was highly symbolic as it greatly expanded the reach of our STM32H7 series, and to cement the new applications that are now possible thanks to these new models, we offer videos to help professionals and enthusiasts get started. The one below delves into the STM32H747I-DISCO Discovery kit, explaining the main features of the new component and its applications while also offering an overview of the PCB. Its 4″ display, camera connector, and Ethernet port, make it a great tool for developing powerful applications. The board is thus a great introduction to our first dual-core microcontroller.
STM32H7 Value Line: Less Flash for Greater Graphical Interfaces
The second video on the STM32H750B-DK showcases the true power behind our Value Line MCUs. This series targets engineers who will necessarily use external memory because of graphic-intensive applications. We thus embedded less Flash to make a component that was more accessible and relevant. The video below is, therefore, fascinating because it shows what a PCB with two external Quad-SPI Flash modules of 64 MB each can accomplish. The reduction of internal Flash has absolutely no bearing on performances since the demos show a low utilization rate of the MCU despite running complex graphical user interfaces. It is also a testament to the capabilities of TouchGFX, which enables the creation of fast, elaborate, and modern touch interfaces. The board also includes an Ethernet port, an Audio DAC, a 4.3″ panel, and a 4 GB of onboard eMMC to facilitate the development of multimedia applications, among others.
