The ARM Cortex-M3 processor is the latest generation of ARM processors for embedded systems. It has been developed to provide a low-cost platform that meets the needs of MCU implementation, with a reduced pin count and low-power consumption, while delivering outstanding computational performance and an advanced system response to interrupts. The ARM Cortex-M3 32-bit RISC processor features exceptional code-efficiency, delivering the high-performance expected from an ARM core in the memory size usually associated with 8- and 16-bit devices.
The STM32F103 Performance Line family has an embedded ARM core and is therefore compatible with all ARM tools and software. It combines the high performance ARM Cortex-M3 CPU with an extensive range of peripheral functions and enhanced I/O capabilities.
STM32-103STK is a starter-kit board which allows you to explore all of STM32F103's capabilities. It has a NOKIA 3310 BW 84x48 LCD, buttons, a SD-MMC card, an Accelerometer, a 2.4Ghz RF transceiver, Audio Input and Output, and the power supply is made from single 1.5V AA cell battery.
