STM32 Peripheral Access Crates
This repository provides Rust device support crates for all STM32 microcontrollers, providing a safe API to that device's peripherals using svd2rust and a community-built collection of patches to the basic SVD files. There is one crate per device family, and each supported device is a feature-gated module in that crate. These crates are commonly known as peripheral access crates or "PACs".
To view the generated code that makes up each crate, visit the stm32-rs-nightlies repository, which is automatically rebuilt on every commit to stm32-rs master. The stm32-rs repository contains the patches to the underlying SVD files and the tooling to generate the crates.
While these crates are widely used, not every register of every device will have been tested on hardware, and so errors or omissions may remain. We can't make any guarantee of correctness. Please report any bugs you find!
You can see current coverage status for each chip here. Coverage means that individual fields are documented with possible values, but even devices with low coverage should have every register and field available in the API. That page also allows you to drill down into each field on each register on each peripheral.
Using Device Crates In Your Own Project
In your own project's
[dependencies.stm32f4] version = "0.15.1" features = ["stm32f405", "rt"]
rt feature is optional but helpful. See
Then, in your code:
use stm32f4::stm32f405; let mut peripherals = stm32f405::Peripherals::take().unwrap();
svd2rust documentation for further usage.
stm32f405 with your own device; see the individual
crate READMEs for the complete list of supported devices. All current STM32
devices should be supported to some level.
Using Latest "Nightly" Builds
Whenever the master branch of this repository is updated, all device crates are
built and deployed to the
repository. You can use this in your
[dependencies.stm32f4] git = "https://github.com/stm32-rs/stm32-rs-nightlies" features = ["stm32f405", "rt"]
The nightlies should always build and be as stable as the latest release, but contain the latest patches and updates.

Motivation and Objectives
This project serves two purposes:
- Create a source of high-quality STM32 SVD files, with manufacturer errors and inconsistencies fixed. These files could be used with svd2rust or other tools, or in other projects. They should hopefully be useful in their own right.
- Create and publish svd2rust-generated crates covering all STM32s, using the SVD files.
When this project began, many individual crates existed for specific STM32 devices, typically maintained separately with hand-edited updates to the SVD files. This project hopes to reduce that duplication of effort and centralise the community's STM32 device support in one place.
This project is still young and there's a lot to do!
- More peripheral patches need to be written, most of all. See what we've got
peripherals/and grab a reference manual!
- Also everything needs testing, and you can't so easily automate finding bugs in the SVD files...
Supported Device Families
Please see the individual crate READMEs for the full list of devices each crate supports. All SVDs released by ST for STM32 devices are covered, so probably your device is supported to some extent!
Devices that are nearly identical, like the STM32F405/F415, are supported by ST under a single SVD file STM32F405, so if you can't find your exact device check if its sibling is supported instead. The crate READMEs make this clear.
Many peripherals are not yet patched to provide the type-safe friendly-name interface (enumerated values); please consider helping out with this!
Check out the full list of supported devices here.
Adding New Devices
- Update SVD zips in
svd/vendorto include new SVD.
svd/extract.shto extract the zips into
svd(ignored in git).
- Add new YAML file in
devices/with the new SVD path and include any required SVD patches for this device, such as renaming or merging fields.
- You can run
scripts/matchperipherals.pyscript to find out what existing peripherals could be cleanly applied to this new SVD. If they look sensible, you can include them in your device YAML.
scripts/makecrates.py devices/to update the crates with the new devices.
maketo rebuild, which will make a patched SVD and then run
svd2ruston it to generate the final library.
Updating Existing Devices/Peripherals
- You'll need to run
svd/extract.shat least once to pull the SVDs out.
- Edit the device or peripheral YAML (see below for format).
maketo rebuild all the crates using
- Test your new stuff compiles:
cd stm32f4; cargo build --features stm32f405
If you've added a new peripheral, consider using the
script to see which devices it would cleanly apply to.
To generate a new peripheral file from scratch, consider using
periphtemplate.py, which creates an empty peripheral file based on a single
SVD file, with registers and fields ready to be populated. For single bit wide
fields with names ending in 'E' or 'D' it additionally generates sample
"Enabled"/"Disabled" entries to save time.
Device and Peripheral YAML Format
Please see the svdtools documentation for full details of the patch file format.
- Enumerated values should be named in the past tense ("enabled", "masked", etc).
- Descriptions should start with capital letters but do not end with a period
Notes for maintainers:
- Create PR preparing for new release:
CHANGELOG.mdwith changes since last release and new contributors
README.mdto bump version number in example snippet
scripts/makecrates.pyto update version number for generated PACs
- Merge PR once CI passes, pull master locally.
