STM32 Development Board Implements CAN FD On-Chip Modules, Supports Arduino And ARM mbed Platforms

Posted by Industry News on

STM32 Nucleo-144 development board with STM32F207ZG MCU, supports Arduino, ST Zio and morpho connectivity

ST Microelectronics announced their Nucleo-144 boards, featuring an STM32 micro-controller in an LQFP144 package. The board’s Zio connector enables connection to Arduino Uno V3.

The development board does not require any separate probe as it integrates the Link/V2-1 debugger/programmer. It comes with Ethernet and USB connectors. The board is not equipped with CAN transceiver, although the STM32 micro-controller implements CAN FD on-chip modules. Therefore an external module with CAN transceiver and appropriate connector (e.g. 9-pin Dsub with CiA 303-1 pinning) is needed.

The product features an Arduino Uno connector. The Zio connector provides an access to a broad range of peripherals. The Morpho connector gives access to all MCU pins including the CAN FD module (RX/TX). The board comes with STM32 software libraries and examples included in the STM32Cube package. Several third-party software products are available for the development board. This includes software by IAR, Keil, ARM-mbed online, etc.
