STMicroelectronics has upgraded to version 2.1 of the ST7 software library, a development tool that provides comprehensive support for designers creating applications based on the popular ST7 family of enhanced 8bit microcontrollers. The upgrade adds support for recently introduced MCUs, including the ST72561 automotive microcontroller, the ST72264, and the ST7Lite and Superlite series, as well as for a range of peripheral modules.

The library is available as a free download to support ST7 developers. It enables standardized source code to be created rapidly for a wide range of target applications, without the need for users to make an in-depth study of each peripheral's specification.

The ST7 library supports Metrowerks and Cosmic compilers, and is fully compliant with the MISRA (Motor Industry Software Reliability Association) automotive software standard. A RIDE graphical interface (GUI) is available, supporting the Cosmic compiler.

In addition, support for all of the ST7 standard peripherals is provided by the library, including A/D converter, interrupt controller, EEPROM, the serial communication interfaces, eight different timers, general I/Os and CAN (controller area network). The MCU families ST7232x, ST7252x, ST726x, ST72561 and ST7Lite and their subsets are all represented, with register map files for all devices and device configuration files for the Metrowerks and Cosmic compilers. A detailed user manual provides a description of every library function, plus example code and instructions on the most effective way to use the library.
