The Zephyr stm32f412g_disco board configuration supports the following hardware features:
|NVIC||on-chip||nested vector interrupt controller|
|UART||on-chip||serial port-polling; serial port-interrupt|
Other hardware features are not yet supported on Zephyr porting.
The default configuration can be found in the defconfig file:
STM32F412G-DISCO Discovery kit has 8 GPIO controllers. These controllers are responsible for pin muxing, input/output, pull-up, etc.
For mode details please refer to 32F412GDISCOVERY board User Manual.
Default Zephyr Peripheral Mapping:¶
- UART_2_TX : PA2
- UART_2_RX : PA3
- LD1 : PE0
- LD2 : PE1
- LD3 : PE2
- LD4 : PE3
STM32F412G-DISCO System Clock could be driven by internal or external oscillator, as well as main PLL clock. By default System clock is driven by PLL clock at 100MHz, driven internal oscillator.
The STM32F412G Discovery kit has up to 4 UARTs. The Zephyr console output is assigned to UART2. Default settings are 115200 8N1.
Programming and Debugging¶
STM32F412G-DISCO Discovery kit includes an ST-LINK/V2 embedded debug tool interface. This interface is supported by the openocd version included in Zephyr SDK.
Flashing an application to STM32F412G-DISCO¶
Connect the STM32F412G-DISCO Discovery kit to your host computer using the USB port, then run a serial host program to connect with your board:
$ minicom -D /dev/ttyACM0
Then build and flash an application. Here is an example for the Hello World application.
# On Linux/macOS cd $ZEPHYR_BASE/samples/hello_world mkdir build && cd build # On Windows cd %ZEPHYR_BASE%\samples\hello_world mkdir build & cd build # Use cmake to configure a Ninja-based build system: cmake -GNinja -DBOARD=stm32f412g_disco .. # Now run ninja on the generated build system: ninja ninja flash
You should see the following message on the console:
Hello World! arm
You can debug an application in the usual way. Here is an example for the Hello World application.
# On Linux/macOS cd $ZEPHYR_BASE/samples/hello_world # If you already made a build directory (build) and ran cmake, just 'cd build' instead. mkdir build && cd build # On Windows cd %ZEPHYR_BASE%\samples\hello_world # If you already made a build directory (build) and ran cmake, just 'cd build' instead. mkdir build & cd build # Use cmake to configure a Ninja-based build system: cmake -GNinja -DBOARD=stm32f412g_disco .. # Now run ninja on the generated build system: ninja debug
