SOMNIUM DRT now supports STMicroelectronics’ STM32 F7/H7 high performance Cortex-M microcontrollers

Posted on July 12, 2017

We are pleased to announce version 4.3 of SOMNIUM DRT embedded C/C++ software development tools for leading ARM® Cortex®-M based microcontrollers.

The DRT IDE provides a mature Windows, Linux and macOS hosted environment with innovative features for ease of use and state of the art debug. DRT’s code generation tools combine validated quality with patented GNU-compatible optimizations for smaller, faster more energy efficient code, with no source code changes required.

DRT 4.3 expands the existing support for microcontrollers to include STMicroelectronics’ STM32 F7 and H7 series of high-performance ARM Cortex-M7 microcontrollers. DRT’s patented optimizations extract even more performance from these devices, with the industry standard EEMBC® CoreMark results increased by 15% to 30% compared to vanilla GNU tools.

DRT’s advanced Eclipse-based IDE offers innovative features for high productivity, embedded debugging and migrating projects from legacy tools. Unlike other vendors, SOMNIUM proudly modify the Eclipse platform, maintaining industry compatibility whilst fixing bugs and adding features to give developers the IDE they deserve, not the one they inherit from uncurated Eclipse sources.

DRT’s validated code generation tools, and patented optimizations for smaller codesize, optimized performance and energy saving are the perfect fit for the entire range of STM32 microcontrollers. The addition of STM32 F7 and H7 support extends full power of DRT’s validated code generation and patented optimizations to extract even more performance from these high performance devices.

Developers who leverage these code generation benefits with DRT’s advanced IDE and high quality technical support can now reach the market faster, with performance, cost and feature optimized STM32 designs.


SOMNIUM® DRT Cortex-M IDE supports Microchip SAM, Nordic nRF, NXP Kinetis, NXP LPC and STMicroelectronics STM32 microcontrollers. SOMNIUM DRT 4.3 is available now.
