[Solved] Why STM Microcontroller are Popular?



  • Why STM microcontrollers are getting more popular these days? the best material to start with STM?



  • @0pencircuit The answer to your question brings in many parameters to be discussed. No product can become a hit in the market just like that. It involves lot of technical support and some of the best marketing strategies for a product to become popular. But, as we discuss more about technical stuff in here I would give some brief specifications of STM32 why it became a hit in market for learning embedded systems.

    1. Board is designed in such a way that it can be interfaced very easily with Arduino IDE and through it's HAL's like STM32 Cube.

    2. Excellent community support for STM32.

    3. If you observe the size of STM32 chip it's really pretty small which enables it's usage for designing really small and qualitative commercial grade products.

    It is super easy to learn and doesn't involves hard macro forms( to be simple "Syntax"). The best way to learn this board is to download this course. As far as I researched this course has given me good path to learn STM32. They teach you all the concepts very carefully. Download the course from this Torrent Link



  • Hi @0pencircuit ,

    Actually the STM (STMicroelectronics) is the company name who makes the STM32 is a family of 32-bit Microcontroller based on ARM architecture and it comes in a wide variety of models and the selection depends on your applications.

    Python Method vs function

    Method is called by its name, but it is associated to an object (dependent).
    A method is implicitly passed the object on which it is invoked.
    It may or may not return any data.
    A method can operate on the data (instance variables) that is contained by the corresponding class
    Function is block of code that is also called by its name. (independent)
    The function can have different parameters or may not have any at all. If any data (parameters) are passed, they are passed explicitly.
    It may or may not return any data.
    Function does not deal with Class and its instance concept.

  • @Suhailjr But I think since it's not a plug and plug play system and it will laying on the PCB for the long term, it might be fine. for me, it's similar to the Intel Edison and the PICO-IMX7 System-on-Module

  • @salmanfaris at last they update their design. T
    What you think on the updated connector. I felt like its more fragile and high chance for corottion issue due to humidity for long term use.

    Seeed is currently counting down for the 10 year anniversary of the debut of Grove 🎉. In the past 10 years, we have seen many wonderful projects created by Grove from our user and community. We want to invite you to join us to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Grove 🤩.

    In the Grove 10 Years Celebration, we’d like to collect the stories of “Grove with You”, which we want to invite our users to share their stories they have with Grove products.

    => What project you’ve made out of Grove?
    => What is your favourite Grove?
    => which one was the first Grove you’ve purchased?

    Seeed encourages you to post and share photos, videos, stories of Grove in the Seeeed Forum, or any other platforms below that you’d like to use.

    The following ways to find us, and tag #grove10 to share the project with us!

    Twitter (@seeedstudio) Instagram (@seeedstudio) or simply email your project to grove10@seeed.cc

    Feel free to be creative in documenting your projects–we will be selecting top 10 most “Grovy” winning entries from the submissions, and the winners will receive a $100 Grove Surprise Pack 😋 as a special gift.

    Looking forward to seeing your projects! 🥳
