ST provides a set of tools allowing the design engineer to evaluate the specific features of its products. No time, expenses and resources are required for the development of customized boards to try out ST’s integrated circuits.

The product development tools are either available as stand-alone-boards, containing all the required external devices that are needed to operate the device, or as a modular solution in case the same base components (MCUs) are instrumental in the evaluation of different target devices.

The critical electrical parameters can be monitored and PC based graphical user interfaces round up most of the tools, allowing for an easy control of the target devices following a plug-and-play approach.

The tools are complemented by a comprehensive range of documentation, including circuit diagrams and bills of material, serving as reference for the user’s future application development.

All the needed embedded software to operate the devices in an embedded application is provided.
