SW4STM32 and SW4Linux fully supports the STM32MP1 asymmetric multicore Cortex/A7+M4 MPUs

   With System Workbench for Linux, Embedded Linux on the STM32MP1 family of MPUs from ST was never as simple to build and maintain, even for newcomers in the Linux world. And, if you install System Workbench for Linux in System Workbench for STM32 you can seamlessly develop and debug asymmetric applications running partly on Linux, partly on the Cortex-M4.

System Workbench for STM32 v2.5.0 release

A new version has been released and is available through Eclipse update system (“Help > Check for Updates”) and through All-in-One installer.

The release v2.5.0 adds support for:

New STM32Cube package versions:

  • STM32Cube F1 V1.6.1
  • STM32Cube F4 V1.21.0
  • STM32Cube F7 V1.12.0
  • STM32Cube L1 V1.8.1
  • STM32Cube F3 V1.10.0
  • STM32Cube L4 V1.12.0
  • STM32Cube H7 V1.3.0

New Value Line part numbers of the STM32F7 and STM32H7 series:

  • STM32F730I8Kx
  • STM32F730R8Tx
  • STM32F730V8Tx
  • STM32F730Z8Tx
  • STM32F750N8Hx
  • STM32F750V8Tx
  • STM32F750Z8Tx
  • STM32H750IBKx
  • STM32H750VBTx
  • STM32H750XBHx

This release provides the following improvements:

  • Updated of ARM toolchain to 2017-q4 major release (7) excepting GDB
  • OpenOCD:
    • Update Libusb
    • support of new STM32F7 and STM32H7 series part numbers
    • Add support of external QuadSPI flash programming on STM32F723E-DISCO, STM32756G-EVAL2 and STM32H7x3I-eval. For other external memories programming on STMicroelectronics boards, you must use STM32CubeProgrammer tool.
  • Fix browse button issue on “Debug” configuration

This release provides the following fixes:

  • Fixed path with spaces


  • Installers need at least 600Mo free space on the installation volume
  • it is recommended to install STM32Cube Firmware packages in a short path to avoid too long path issues when importing and building projects on Windows.
  • The new CDT Debug Console, that offers a powerful GDB console, is not supported yet.
  • In some Linux environments the Welcome screen rendering could appear messy (empty page, missing icons). This is generally caused by an unresolved WebKit1 library required by SWT for GTK2. To restore this display issue it is advised to install the following package: $ sudo apt-get install libwebkitgtk-1.0-0
  • On Ubuntu, version 14.04 is now required to run System Workbench for STM32
  • For MAC OSX Users : Due to missing path to JRE, some users could not launch the installer. This issue is now fixed. For users who have installed the Oracle Java JDK, the old/new installers are still working.
