STM32 Project Specifics
Once a project has been created you can select different target processors by right clicking on the project node in the project explorer and selecting the Target Processor entry.
Selecting the target processor will specify the memory map that is used for the build and debug. You can view the selected memory map by right clicking on the project node in the project explorer and selecting View Memory Map or View Memory Map (as text).
Selecting the target processor will cause the following preprocessor definitions to be defined when you build the project:
- For F100x4/6 devices STM32F10X_LD_VL.
- For F100x8/B devices STM32F10X_MD_VL.
- For F100xC/D/E devices STM32F10X_HD_VL.
- For F101x4/6, F102x4/6, F103x4/6 devices STM32F10X_LD.
- For F101x8/B, F102x8/B, F103x8/B devices STM32F10X_MD.
- For F101xC/D/E, F102xC/D/E, F103xC/D/E devices STM32F10X_HD.
- For F101xF/G, F103xF/G devices STM32F10X_XL.
- For F105xx and F107xx devices STM32F10X_CL.
- For L1xxx6/8/B devices STM32L1XX_MD.
- For L1xxxC devices STM32L1XX_MDP.
- For L1xxxD devices STM32L1XX_HD.
- For F2xx devices STM32F2XX.

- For F042x devices STM32F042.
- For F071x/F072x devices STM32F072.
- For W devices the device name.
- For all devices __TARGET_PROCESSOR_device_name.
For devices that have an FPU the preprocessor definition __FPU_PRESENT is defined.
CrossStudio for ARM supports STM32 projects running applications in a number of different memory configurations. You can select the memory configuration you require by right clicking on the project node in the project explorer and selecting the Placement entry.
For STM32 projects the set of placements are:
- Flash application runs in internal Flash memory.
- Flash Vectors In RAM application run in internal Flash memory exception vectors are copied to RAM memory.
- Flash Copy To RAM application starts in internal flash and copies itself to run internal RAM memory.
- RAM application runs internal RAM memory.
Stack and Heap Sizes
The stack and heap sizes are set to be 128 bytes by default when a project is created. This enables projects to run on the smallest of the STM32 processors. It is likely that you will need to change these values when developing applications to run on the larger of the STM32 processors.
Target Startup Code
The startup code STM32_Startup.s is common to all STM32F and STM32L processors. There are a set of preprocessor defines that configure the startup code and are documented in the startup file itself. The startup code calls out to a weak symbol SystemInit with the stack pointer set to the top of RAM. The SystemInit function can be used to set the CPU clock or configure any external memories prior to the C initialisation code as such it cannot access initialised static data.
The startup code declares symoblic names (and weak implementations) for each interrupt service routine, for example the EXTI0_IRQHandler function will be called when this interrupt occurs. If you are porting code that has application specific interrupt service routine names then you can use the preprocessor definitions to rename the symbol for example EXTI0_IRQHandler=MyEXTI0ISR.
Target Reset Script
The reset script STM32_Target.js is used by the debugger to reset the target board.
The reset script will program the DBGMCU register so that the STM32 watchdog timers are stopped when in debug mode and the STM32 lower-power mode debugging is enabled.
The reset script provides some support for programming the USER option byte of the STM32F10x, STM32L and STM32F2xx/STM32F4xx. To use these you should:
- Connect to the appropriate target.
- Use View | Script Console to display the script console.
- In the script console type load("targets/STM32/STM32_Target.js") which should return true on success.
For STM32F10x targets:
- STM32F_EraseOptionBytes() which will erase all of the option bytes - this function must be called first.
- STM32F_Unprotect() to disable read protection - this function should be called unless you want to enable read protection.
- STM32F_SetUSER(b) and pass the desired USER byte value as the argument.
- STM32F_SetData0(b) and pass the desired user Data0 byte value as the argument.
- STM32F_SetData1(b) and pass the desired user Data1 byte value as the argument.
For STM32L targets:
- STM32L_SetUSER(b) and pass the desired USER byte value as the argument.
For STM32F2xx/STM32F4xx targets:
- STM32F2xx_SetUSER(b) and pass the desired USER byte value as the argument.
You should then disconnect the target interface and power cycle the board.
STM32 Internal Flash Loader
The source code to the flash loadersfor the internal Flash of the various devices is provided.
STM32L EEPROM Support
The STM32L memory map files and flash loader supports loading the EEPROM which can be used as follows:
extern unsigned eevar __attribute__ ((section(".eeprom"))); unsigned eevar = 12;
An STM32 memory simulator is provided that simulates the memories of the various STM32 devices. The memory simulation parameter (which is set by the Target Processor selection) specifies the device name, the size of the internal Flash and RAM memories and then optionally the sizes of 4 FSMC Flash/RAM memories.
CMSIS header files and source are included as part of the new project setup.
The file STM32_ctl.c implements the CTL system timer using the Cortex-M SysTick timer. The timer is configured to interrupt at a 10 millisecond rate and increment the CTL system timer by 10 to give a millisecond timer. The implementation uses the CMSIS SystemFrequency global variable to determine the CPU clock frequency. The CTL samples that are provided in this package have board specific files that implement this variable.
The CTL interrupt support functions ctl_global_interrupts_set, ctl_set_priority, ctl_unmask_isr and ctl_mask_isr are implemented in this file. The Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4 implementations uses the lowest half of the available NVIC priorities (top bit set in the priority) for CTL interrupts and disables global interrupts by raising t he NVIC basepriority above the highest CTL priority. This enables you to use the upper half of the NVIC priorities for interrupts that do not use CTL and should not be disabled by a CTL interrupt. The functions ctl_lowest_isr_priority, ctl_highest_isr_priority, and ctl_adjust_isr_priority are provided to assist with setting isr priorities.
The "Connect With Reset" project property doesn't work with the original ST-LINK and also causes the part name detection to fail on Cortex-M0 devices.
