TitanMKD posted an update to his STM32F4 based debug board we covered previously:  This board is intended to be used as a portable multi-purpose debug/hack tool with very fast peripherals and MCU and use standard Dangerous Prototypes Sick Of Beige DP6037 case format A full open source firmware is planned using chibios and like Bus Pirate […]

STM32F4 Debug Board in a Sick of Beige case

TitanMKD is designing an STM32F4 based debug board using a DP6037 standard PCB size and a Sick of Beige case.  The board features a Bus Pirate-like serial terminal interface. This board is intended to be used as a portable multi-purpose debug/hack tool with very fast peripherals and MCU and use standard Dangerous Prototypes Sick Of […]

Open source OSX IDE/toolchain for the STM32F4 Discovery

alexwhittmore has posted a detailed tutorial highlighting an open source IDE and toolchain for the STM32F4 dev board on Max OSX Lion. He uses Indigo R Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers (Mac Cocoa 64-bit), Sourcery CodeBench Lite Edition, STM32F4 DSP and standard peripherals library and the STM32F4 Discovery board firmware package.

Getting started with the STM32F4-Discovery board and ChibiOS/RT

Giovanni writes to inform us about his guide regarding the STM32F4-Discovery. This article will explain how to get started with the recently released STM32F4-Discovery board using ChibiOS/RT. This board is really cheap (below $20) and is an excellent evaluation platform for the STMicroelectronics Hi-Performance & DSP STM32F4 family. Via the contact form.

Bus Blaster: Programming the STM32F4 DISCOVERY

Nabil programed the STM32F4 DISCOVERY development board using the Bus Blaster JTAG debugger and open source OpenOCD software: My initial research lead me to texane’s github where he created a linux version of ST-LINK. It doesn’t support the STM32F4 yet, but there is a fork which is making good progress. I couldn’t get either to […]
