Develop DSI/HDMI video solutions with two new add-on display adapter boards

ST introduces two new add-on display adapter boards for STM32F769 Discovery boards to demonstrate video solutions based on STM32 MCUs. These adapters enable compatibility with more display types, resolutions and sizes, and provide a means to use HDMI technology. The B-LCDAD-HDMI1 converts DSI into HDMI format to connect HDMI displays. The B-LCDAD-RPI1 is a simple board that outputs DSI signals in a single row over a 15-pin connector and can also be used to connect a Raspberry Pi® display.

 

ST extends feature integration and flexibility of STM32F4 Access lines with STM32F413/423 MCUs

The STM32F413 and crypto-enhanced STM32F423 lines are the ultimate entry-level devices topping the high-performance STM32F4 Access line. They hit the spot with up to 1.5 Mbytes of Flash memory and 320 Kbytes of SRAM. New features not previously available in the STM32F4 Access line include a serial audio interface (SAI) and an enhanced voice-acquisition interface. Other peripherals include two 12-bit DACs, up to ten UARTs and three CAN (2.0B Active) interfaces.

 

Discover the features and benefits of STM32F7 high-performance MCUs in less than 20 minutes

This e-presentation highlights the key features and main benefits of the STM32F7 series of very high-performance MCUs with a 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M7 core. STM32F7 MCUs optimize the performance of the entire system by combining a set of brand new peripherals around the Cortex-M7 with a superior interconnect architecture with AXI and multi-layer AHB bus matrixes, multiple general-purpose and dedicated DMA controllers, a Chrom-ART graphic hardware accelerator as well as a JPEG accelerator on some variants.
