ST Nucleo L031K6

Overview

The STM32 Nucleo-32 development board with STM32L031K6 MCU, supports Arduino Nano V3 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 Arduino* Nano V3 connectivity support allow easy functionality expansion of the STM32 Nucleo open development platform with a wide choice of specialized shields.

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.

Other hardware features are not yet supported in this Zephyr port.

The default configuration can be found in the defconfig file: boards/arm/nucleo_l031k6/nucleo_l031k6_defconfig

Connections and IOs

Each of the GPIO pins can be configured by software as output (push-pull or open-drain), as input (with or without pull-up or pull-down), or as peripheral alternate function. Most of the GPIO pins are shared with digital or analog alternate functions. All GPIOs are high current capable except for analog inputs.

Default Zephyr Peripheral Mapping:

  • UART_2 TX/RX : PA2/PA15 (ST-Link Virtual Port Com)

  • I2C1 SCL/SDA : PA9/PA10 (Arduino I2C)

  • SPI1 SCK/MISO/MOSI : PA5/PA6/PA7 (Arduino SPI)

  • LD2 : PB3

For mode details please refer to STM32 Nucleo-32 board User Manual 3.

Programming and Debugging

Applications for the nucleo_l031k6 board configuration can be built and flashed in the usual way (see Building an Application and Run an Application for more details).

Flashing

Nucleo L031K6 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 L031K6

Here is an example for the Blinky application.

# From the root of the zephyr repository
west build -b nucleo_l031k6 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 Hello World application.

# From the root of the zephyr repository
west build -b nucleo_l031k6 samples/hello_world
west debug
