RapidSTM32 Blockset Features

RapidSTM32 Blockset is offered with two sets of features:

1.     Limited-feature

2.     Full-feature

Full-feature set is available only when FiO family of Evaluation Board (EVB) is physically connected to the host PC. FiO is a family of EVB that has been specifically designed to work seamlessly with RapidSTM32 Blockset and is offered at an affordable cost. In this respect, FiO EVB may be viewed as a hardware key that enables the full features of RapidSTM32 Blockset.

Nevertheless, the generated source code is available for both full and limited features. "Therefore, in theory, even with limited-feature set you can modify the source code in anyway you like to suit your needs."

The following table lists and compares the features of RapidSTM32 Blockset.
