Thanks to STMDuino32 community, there was already support for the Arduino IDE on board based on STMicro STM32 ARM Cortex-M micro-controllers, but STMicroelectronics and Arduino Srl have introduced the STAR program to bring official support, and unveiled their first board with STAR OTTO Arduino board powered by STM32F469 Cortex M4 MCU at Maker Faire Bay Area 2016.
- MCU – STMicro STM32F469BIT6 ARM Cortex-M4 MCU @ 180 MHz with 2 MB Flash memory, 384 KB SRAM, Chrom-ART graphics accelerator
- System Memory – 16 MB SDRAM
- Storage – 128 KB EEPROM, microSD slot
- Connectivity – Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n @ 2.4 GHz via Espressif ESP8266
- Display I/F – MIPI DSI display interface
- Camera – Camera connector
- Audio – 2x MEMS digital microphones, headphone and speaker output
- USB – 1x micro USB host interface
- Expansion – Arduino Uno, Due, Mega connectors including 8x ADC, 2x DAC, 32 digital I/Os, and 12 PWM outputs; 25ma max current per I/O pins
- Power Supply – 6-12V input
- Dimensions – 101.5 x 53.3 mm
- Weight – 34 grams
The board is also quite powerful, and the company will provide Arduino STAR LCD shield and an NFC shield for the board in Q2 2012, with a separate sensor shields planned for H2 2016. The board can be programmed via either the Arduino IDE or Arduino Studio online IDE (which I can find info on).
