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

The default configuration can be found in the defconfig file: boards/arm/stm32f103_mini/stm32f103_mini_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.

Programming and Debugging

Applications for the stm32f103_mini board configuration can be built and flashed in the usual way (see Building an Application and Run an Application for more details).

Flashing

There are 2 main entry points for flashing STM32F1X SoCs, one using the ROM bootloader, and another by using the SWD debug port (which requires additional hardware such as ST-Link). Flashing using the ROM bootloader requires a special activation pattern, which can be triggered by using the BOOT0 pin.

Flashing an application to stm32f103 mini

Here is an example for the Blinky application.

# From the root of the zephyr repository
west build -b stm32f103_mini 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 stm32f103_mini samples/basic/blinky
west debug
