Development Ecosystem

No matter your needs, ST offers the right parts, boards and DIL24 adapters for an easy evaluation. The sockets can be plugged into the professional MEMS tool STEVAL-MKI109V3 based on the STM32F401VET6 microcontroller and also into the MEMS expansion Shield X-NUCLEO-IKS01A2, compatible with the STM32 Nucleo development system. The STEVAL-MKIT02V1 MEMS sensors’ sample kit includes 4 different MEMS sensor adapters to facilitate the evaluation of the IIS2MDC, IIS2DH, ISM330DLC and II3DHHC devices.  
Unicleo-GUI is a graphical user interface for the X-CUBE-MEMS-XT1 software expansion and STM32Nucleo expansion board X-NUCLEO-IKS01A2 supporting Industrial sensors DIL24 sockets.

The UNICO GUI, included in the STWS-MKI109W software package, provides a user-friendly graphic interface to test the sensor operation.

AlgoBuilder is a graphical design application to build and use algorithms. It quickly elaborates prototypes of applications for STM32 microcontrollers and MEMS sensors, including already existing algorithms.
