1.1. A Bit of Etymology
The STM32 family of microcontrollers has a very obvious and unoriginal name : it’s made by STMicroelectronics and it’s 32-bit microcontrollers. I like it when a big corporation doesn’t waste effort coming up with esoteric product names or puns such as “Spresense” or “Raspberry Pi”. We’re technical people, a bunch of letter and numbers that obey a simple logic is all we want. I mean, I have trouble remembering the name of people I haven’t seen for a month, do you honestly expect me to remember fancy product names ? Know you audience !
