New series demonstrates time-to-market innovation, embedding a full set of advanced features around a new core to deliver smartest STM32 MCUs ever
STMicroelectronics has announced the new STM32 F7 microcontroller (MCU) series, an extension of its STM32 family of more than 500 pin- and software-compatible micro controllers. The STM32 F7 leverages the ARM Cortex-M7 core, just announced as ARM’s newest and most powerful Cortex-M processor. ST’s STM32 F7 series leapfrogs the industry’s previous high-performance 32-bit Cortex-M champ — ST’s own STM32 F4 — in delivering up to twice as much processing and DSP performance that is accessible via a seamless upgrade path.
Headlining the industry’s most successful family of Cortex M-core-based microcontrollers, the new STM32 F7 MCU series operates at frequencies up to 200 MHz and uses a 6-stage superscalar pipeline and Floating Point Unit (FPU) to produce up to 1000 CoreMarks1. Architectural innovations surrounding the MCU boost performance and ease of use: ST has included two independent mechanisms to reach 0-wait-state performance from both internal and external memories: using ST’s Adaptive Real-Time (ART Accelerator™) for internal embedded Flash and L1 cache for both execution and data access from internal and external memories.
