ST STM32F0 Discovery
####################

Overview
********

The STM32F0 Discovery development board uses an STM32F051R8T6 MCU and
integrates the ST-LINK/V2-1 debugger and programmer.  It also comes with a
comprehensive STM32 software HAL library and various packaged software
examples.

More information about the board can be found at the `STM32F0DISCOVERY website`_.

Hardware
********

The STM32 Discovery board features:

- STM32F051R8T6 microcontroller featuring 64 KB Flash memory, 8 KB RAM in an
  LQFP64 package
- On-board ST-LINK/V2 with selection mode switch to use the kit as a standalone
  ST-LINK/V2 (with SWD connector for programming and debugging)
- Board power supply: through USB bus or from an external 5 V supply voltage
- External application power supply: 3 V and 5 V
- Four LEDs:

    - LD1 (red) for 3.3 V power on
    - LD2 (red/green) for USB communication
    - LD3 (green) for PC9 output
    - LD4 (blue) for PC8 output
- Two push buttons (user and reset)
- Extension header for all LQFP64 I/Os for quick connection to prototyping board
  and easy probing
- An additional board is provided which can be connected to the extension
  connector for even easier prototyping and probing.
- Comprehensive free software including a variety of examples, part of
  STM32CubeF0 package or STSW-STM32049 for legacy Standard Libraries usage

More information about STM32F051R8 can be found in the `STM32F0x8 reference manual`_.

Supported Features
==================

The Zephyr stm32f0_disco board configuration supports the following hardware features:

+-----------+------------+-------------------------------------+
| Interface | Controller | Driver/Component                    |
+===========+============+=====================================+
| NVIC      | on-chip    | nested vector interrupt controller  |
+-----------+------------+-------------------------------------+
| UART      | on-chip    | serial port-polling;                |
|           |            | serial port-interrupt               |
+-----------+------------+-------------------------------------+
| PINMUX    | on-chip    | pinmux                              |
+-----------+------------+-------------------------------------+
| GPIO      | on-chip    | gpio                                |
+-----------+------------+-------------------------------------+
| CLOCK     | on-chip    | reset and clock control             |
+-----------+------------+-------------------------------------+
| FLASH     | on-chip    | flash memory                        |
+-----------+------------+-------------------------------------+
| WATCHDOG  | on-chip    | independent watchdog                |
+-----------+------------+-------------------------------------+

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

The default configuration can be found in the defconfig file:
``boards/arm/stm32f0_disco/stm32f0_disco_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.

Default Zephyr Peripheral Mapping:
----------------------------------

- UART_1_TX : PA9
- UART_1_RX : PA10
- UART_2_TX : PA2
- UART_2_RX : PA3

For mode details please refer to `STM32F0DISCOVERY board User Manual`_.

Programming and Debugging
*************************

Applications for the ``stm32f0_disco`` board configuration can be built and
flashed in the usual way (see :ref:`build_an_application` and
:ref:`application_run` for more details).

Flashing
========

STM32F0DISCOVERY board includes an ST-LINK/V2-1 embedded debug tool interface.
This interface is supported by the openocd version included in the Zephyr SDK.

Flashing an application to Nucleo F030R8
----------------------------------------

Here is an example for the :ref:`blinky-sample` application.

.. zephyr-app-commands::
   :zephyr-app: samples/basic/blinky
   :board: stm32f0_disco
   :goals: build 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
:ref:`blinky-sample` application.

.. zephyr-app-commands::
   :zephyr-app: samples/basic/blinky
   :board: stm32f0_disco
   :maybe-skip-config:
   :goals: debug
