STMicroelectronics has decided to take part in ARM's mbed project, which aims to promote the development of new Internet of Things products. The move is expected to attract developers using STM32 microcontrollers to the project. ARM intends to introduce the first mbed-enabled STM32 development boards in February 2014.

ARM mbed delivers free tools and fundamental open-source hardware and software building blocks for the rapid development of innovative ARM-based devices. The project also enables the easy integration of connectivity, sensor and cloud service software components and the tools and support for a dynamic, collaborative developer and partner ecosystem.

Combined with the mbed platform, ST's STM32 microcontroller offers software portability, diverse connectivity options and a rapid development approach for a full range of Internet of Things applications.

"We have learnt from the web and smartphone revolutions that by building an open-source software platform with reusable software components and free development and collaboration tools, we can enable the creation of IoT and smart devices on a previously unimagined scale," said Simon Ford, director of IoT Platforms at ARM.
