ST Nucleo F031K6

Overview

The STM32 Nucleo-32 development board with STM32F031K6 MCU, supports Arduino nano connectivity.

The STM32 Nucleo board provides an affordable, and flexible way for users to try out new concepts, and build prototypes with the STM32 microcontroller, choosing from the various combinations of performance, power consumption and features.

The STM32 Nucleo board integrates the ST-LINK/V2-1 debugger and programmer.

The STM32 Nucleo board comes with the STM32 comprehensive software HAL library together with various packaged software examples.

Programming and Debugging

Applications for the nucleo_f031k6 board configuration can be built and flashed in the usual way (see Building an Application and Run an Application for more details).

Flashing

Nucleo F031K6 board includes an ST-LINK/V2-1 embedded debug tool interface. This interface is supported by the openocd version included in the Zephyr SDK.

Flashing an application to Nucleo F030R8

Here is an example for the Blinky application.

# From the root of the zephyr repository
west build -b nucleo_f031k6 samples/basic/blinky
west flash

You will see the LED blinking every second.

Debugging

You can debug an application in the usual way. Here is an example for the Blinky application.

# From the root of the zephyr repository
west build -b nucleo_f031k6 samples/basic/blinky
west debug
