Firmware-development tool accelerates IoT sensor design

STMicroelectronics’ AlgoBuilder tool takes the coding out of firmware development by letting users build sensor-control algorithms graphically with library modules, ready to compile and run on an STM32 MCU. Created to simplify development of IoT devices containing ST’s MEMS sensors and MCUs, AlgoBuilder helps get a proof-of-concept model up and running. Users can build their algorithms quickly and intuitively by dragging and dropping selected functions, connecting the blocks, and configuring properties.
