Multi-OS software tool eases STM32 programming and protects IP

By eeNews Europe

STM32CubeProgrammer allows device programming through a variety of connections, including JTAG or single-wire debug (SWD) pins, UART, USB, SPI, I2C, or CAN interfaces.

The multi-OS software upgrade is intended to replace several tools including ST Visual Programmer (STVP), DFuSe USB Device Firmware Upgrade programmer, Windows-only STM32 Flash loader, and software utilities for use with ST-Link. New STM32 products will only be supported only by STM32CubeProgrammer from now on.

Built-in features include the STM32 Trusted Package Creator, which protects IP by encrypting firmware using an AES-GCM key and working with the STM32HSM-V1 companion Hardware Security Module (HSM).

The HSM manages authentication and licensing, with counter-limited Secure Firmware Install (SFI) allowing OEMs to restrict the number of devices that can be programmed. The first STM32HSM with maximum programming count of 300 units for prototyping will be available at the end of July 2019.
