Step 3: Creating a New STM32CubeMX Project
The STM32CubeMX start screen includes a link (and menu items) to start
a new project. The new project dialogue is very intuitive. On one tab it
allows you to select an STM32 part number and displays the
memory and features of the selected part. On another tab
it allows you to select a standard evaluation, discovery or STM32 Nucleo board.
Click the “New Project” link. A “New Project” dialogue box will appear.
Select an MCU part number. The dialogue will automatically
grey out the peripherals that are not available for the
In writing this example an STM32F439 part was selected in a
For each peripheral of interest, either check the box or
enter the number of peripherals of that type to be used. It
is not possible to check the boxes of peripherals that do not
exist on the selected MCU part, or enter a number that exceeds
the number of a peripheral actually available on the selected
Once both the MCU part number and the peripherals of interest
have been selected, click “Ok” to close the new project
dialogue and see the main design window.
The main design window has four tabs: Pinout, Clock Configuration,
Configuration, Power Consumption Calculator.
