Available October 31st, 2013: ImageCraft’s CorStarter ™ STM32 is a complete 32bit
ARM Cortex™M3 C Development Kit for $99. It includes all the hardware and software to
develop and debug C programs in a simple to use package.
The CorStarterSTM32 base board, powered by a 72Mhz STM32 device with 256K flash and
64K SRAM, is more than 20 times faster than 8bit AVR Arduino boards. With 8bit Arduino
Shield compatible headers, hundreds of Arduino Shields may be used to expand the capabilities
of the system. Remaining IO pins are brought out to the header, allowing access to the full
power of 32bit embedded computing. The hardware design files for the CorStarterSTM32 base
board are Open Source.
A choice of either the industrial standard Segger JLINKEdu or STLINK/V2 (for ST devices only)
provides fast code download and hardware debugging support. These JTAG/SWD pods allow
full access to Cortex™M devices and seamless debugging without source code modification.
To complement the hardware, the Kit also includes an ImageCraft NonCommercial C compiler
(ICCV8 for Cortex™) license. The C compiler includes a professional IDE with an integrated
flash downloader and source level debugger. The compiler can be used for other Cortex™M
development projects as well. Finally, the Kit includes example projects and libraries for various
The CorStarterSTM32 base board can be purchased by itself for $45.
A companion collegelevel embedded system programming textbook will be available in Spring
