We are happy to announce our two brand new STM32 boards in Thing Plus and MicroMod formats!
\We have an exciting announcement for you on this fine Thursday: We have two new SparkFun Original boards supporting the STM32 SoC from STMicroelectronics! The STM32F405 Processor is based on the high-performance ARM® Cortex®-M4 32-bit RISC core and can operate at a frequency of up to 168 MHz. This core features a floating point unit (FPU) single precision which supports all ARM single precision data-processing instructions and data types. It also implements a full set of DSP instructions and a memory protection unit (MPU), which enhances application security. This Processor Board utilizes the DFU bootloader for uploading code, and incorporates an extensive range of enhanced I/Os and peripherals. To complement the STM32F405 processor, we've also added an additional 128 Mb (16 MB) serial flash memory chip to each board!
The little STM32 Processor Board provides you with an economical and easy to use development platform if you need more power with minimal working space. With the M.2 MicroMod connector, connecting your STM32 Processor is a breeze. Simply match up the key on your processor's beveled edge connector to the key on the M.2 connector and secure it with a screw (included with all Carrier Boards). The STM32 is one of the most powerful and economical microcontrollers available so to be able to add it to your MicroMod Carrier Board is a huge advantage for your project!
The STM32 Thing Plus comes flashed with the DFU bootloader, and to make the Thing Plus even easier to use, we've moved a few pins around to make the board Feather compatible. In addition, it utilizes our handy Qwiic Connect System, which means no soldering or shields are required to connect it to the rest of your system!
To make getting started as easy as possible, SparkFun has developed a few tutorials and knowledge resources. You can always reach these from the product pages, but here are some quick links:
