Connections and IOs

The Adafruit Feather STM32F405 Express Learn site 1 has detailed information about the board including pinouts 2 and the schematic 3.

System Clock

The STM32F405 is configured to use the 12MHz HSE Oscillator to produce a 168MHz system clock.

Serial Port

The STM32F405 UART 3 peripheral is available on the TX (PB10) and RX (PB11) pins.

I2C Port

The STM32F405 I2C1 peripheral is available on the SDA (PB7) and SCL (PB6) pins.

SPI Port

The STM32F405 SPI2 peripheral is available on the SCK (PB13), MI (PB14) and MO (PB15) pins.

SPI1 uses SCK (PB3), MI (PB4), MO (PB5) and SS (PA15) pins and is dedicated to the 2 MB SPI Flash chip.

Programming and Debugging

DFU-Util programming is supported through Zephyr by default. Set up of the built in DFU-Util bootloader is possible by following the instructions on the Learn website 4.

Flashing

#. Build the Zephyr kernel and the Blinky sample application:

west build -b adafruit_feather_stm32f405 samples/basic/blinky

#. On the Adafruit Feather STM32F405, connect the 3.3V pin to the B0 boot pin with a jumper wire.

  1. Flash the image:

    west build -b adafruit_feather_stm32f405 samples/basic/blinky
    west flash
    

    You should see the D13 LED blinking.
