Overview

The GNU ARM Eclipse project includes a set of open source Eclipse plug-ins and tools to create/build/debug/manage ARM (32-bits) and AArch64 (64-bits) applications and static/shared libraries, using the latest GNU ARM GCC toolchains. 

ARM family and FPU type

Starting with GNU ARM Eclipse version 2.10.2, from November 2015, full Cortex-M7 support was added to the C/C++ BuildSettingsTool Settings page; it is now possible not only to select the ARM family: cortex-m7, but also to select the new specific FPU type:

ARM Family: Cortex-M7

The Hello World Cortex-M C/C++ Project wizard

The project wizard was updated to create generic Cortex-M7 projects.

The STM32F7xx C/C++ Project wizard

And last, but probably the most useful, a new template to create STM32F7 projects was added.

STM32F7 Wizard

The wizard currently supports STM32F745xx, STM32F746xx, STM32F756xx, and can create blinky projects for the STM32F746_EVAL and STM32F746_DISCOVERY boards.

The created projects not only pass the build, but are ready to run on the selected boards.
