RoadTest: STMicroelectronics STM32VLDISCOVERY
Evaluation Type: Evaluation Boards
Did you receive all parts the manufacturer stated would be included in the package?: True
What other parts do you consider comparable to this product?:
What were the biggest problems encountered?: To find the documentation, AN and sofware There are located in differents place documentation are www.st.com/stm32-discovery Sofware are in another place.
Firstly thanks to all that allowed me to do this road test. Secondly this is my first ever review so I hope it's good.
The characteristic of the product is
In this product I like the push button to interact with the microcontroller and the two led to see the reaction of this.
I liker also the possibility to supply it with 5V or 3V depending of our application and the acces of all the pin of the microcontroller. With this we can put the product in our application and use
all the pin all the microcontroller as we want and this is a good advantage. Because some evaluation board have a predefined access pin and the other can't be use.
I regret that the product was deliver with nothing. I expected a cd with documentation, application note, source code and sofware to use the product rapidly.
The time to find and download all that I spend more than 1 hour because the documentation, the source code and the sofware are located at different places.
Finally i use Atollic TrueSTUDIO/STM32 Lite, built on Eclipse. The advantage of it is it's free in lite version with no code size limitation.
Eclipse environement is familiar for me so it's easy to use it.
The source code supplier in the website is sufficient to understand the main function and there have a lot of comment to understand the program more easily
So the STM32VLDISCOVERY have a good name. With this module you can discover all the possiblity of STM32F100RB. For this reason i like it and I recommend it to the person who want to develop an application with this microcontroller or to the person who want to discover ST microcontroller easily.
