Nucleo development boards for 32-pin STM32 microcontrollers

October 16, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
STMicroelectronics is extending its range of STM32 Nucleo development boards with scalable, small-form-factor variants to support the tiny 32-pin members of its STM32 microcontroller family.

These STM32 Nucleo-32 boards come with direct support from a wide choice of IDEs and direct access to mbed online resources. The STM32 Nucleo open platform enables prototyping using STM32 microcontrollers combined with a range of available hardware plug-ins through Arduino Nano connectors.

Developers can also take advantage of the STM32 software libraries as well as STM32Cube tools to facilitate software development and port designs from one STM32 variant to another. The STM32 Nucleo boards include the ST-LINK debugger/programmer, which enables drag-and-drop flash programming, so there is no need for a separate debug probe. Since the STM32 Nucleo boards are mbed-enabled, developers can make use of the mbed online tools and collaboration infrastructure at

Three variants of the STM32 Nucleo-32 boards ar based on the STM32F031, STM32F042, and STM32F303. STM32L0 and STM32L4 ultra-low-power series will be supported in Q1 2016. The first STM32 Nucleo-32 boards cost $10.32.
