STM32F103 vs GD32F103 round 3: UART

Monday, March 26th, 2018

Here’s the part 3 of Sjaak's post comparing the GD32 to the STM32: Since the GD32F103 can run as fast as 108MHz but has not a proper USB clock divider to provide a 48MHz clock for USB communication we need another way to communicate with the outside world. Since the early...

  • Max: Seems like an unexpectedly violent way to remove the chip indeed. A hot air station should of course do the job just fine, but in...
