I just configured a pin on the STM32F746G Discovery board as a PWM using the CubeMx. Generated code by selecting the CubeIDE environment. Using Cube IDE went into the main.c and  initialized the timer instance and loaded a value in the timer control register in the main.c file.

Now I want to pass a value from EmbededWizard into my native code to change the value of the PWM counter threshold by modifying the defined variable dutyCycle  The native code section looks like this: htim1.Instance->CCR1 = dutyCycle;

 Should I take the code that initialized the PWM and Timer from  main.c and put it in the driver structure DeviceDriver.c under ,,/Application/Source? Then I can try to follow the tutorials "Interfacing with a Device"


See snippet of code in the main.c that was generated and modified in CubeMx and CubeIDE.


TIM_HandleTypeDef htim1;






htim1.Instance->CCR1 = dutyCycle;

Hi there,

basically this a question more related to the use of STM32CubeMX itself instead of Embedded Wizard, and currently we do not officially support this tool. However, we have already took a look onto it and did a small proof of concept for an STM32F746G Discovery.

You can find it in this thread.

I hope this helps anyways,

best regards,



Hi Tim , Thanks for the response.

 I went to the thread you sent me  Link In here, but  I could not find the example that referenced the API ‘ew_bsp_serial.c/.h’ which should have been part of my target specific (BSP) code. See my "TargetSpecific" directory below. Also, I could not find any Embedded Wizard generated target specific API for PWM or ADC  for the target specific (BSP) code. If I want to use the PWM, I need to generate some code that Embedded Wizard has not included in the Target Specific directory for the BSP. There must be a way to use my own MiddleWare and I am having difficulty finding this information of how to include my generated code in Embedded Wizard. I have looked in the example "DeviceIntegration.ewp" but this just turns and LED on/off and reads a switch. I could not see any API to control the PWM nor read an ADC value. What am I missing?
