Happy New Year!  I finally got up and running, thank you.

Rookie

Also there is a later version of FreeRTOS (7.6) at: www.freertos.org/

The new version has many improvements over the version used in the demo. However I dount that it is a direct replacement.

Rookie

Download the latest demo / driver pack for the board.  At: st.com/stm32f4-discovery

It contains a newer version of the demo that can operate "Test Mode" without the bugs.

Once you laod the Demo, plug it in while holding the Blue User button -- Test Mode will start.

 

Rookie

anywhere in the lecture tells us how to erase this program and restore original program come with the kit?

Rookie

after i hit big red X exit debug. LD1 stops blink. But LD3&4 continutes alternately blink even after I close workspace. Does it mean the programming is still running? Is it correct? I press "RESET" doesn't help. They keep  blinking.

Rookie

receiving the kit on Monday.  I caught up this session. Wonderful. Thank you!

Rookie

Catching up after setting up the kit.

Rookie

Sorry that I missed part of this lecture due to emergency. My kit is not powering up after connecting to the computer. Do we need another cable to supply power? I doubt but still asking.

Rookie

Do any of my messages ever get answered?

Rookie

Looks like the editor does not like negative slashes. There should be slashes (lets try positive slashes) C:/Program Files/STMicroelectronics/st_toolset ..... BTY --- after install the STMicroelectronics dir under Program Files does not exist.  The install program was directed to put the files there.  Should I put them in another place ?

Rookie

STSW-LINK003   Ver 1.0.4 is the STlink I'm downloading. I get a st-link_v2_usbdriver.zip (on my desktop)  Extract All creates dir st-link_v2_usbdriver which contains an 11.0 MB file st-link_v2_usbdriver.exe file.  I right click on this file and do RUN as .. then select admin user. At this point Install STLinkDriver to: C:\Program Files\STMicroelectronics\st_toolset ....Next ... Install ... The InstallShield Wizard has successfully installed STLinkDriver.  

Note:  The Device Manager does not have an entry for STM32 STLink Driver icon (any where) also the C:\Program File\STMicroelectronics\st_toolset does NOT exist. 

What am I doing wrong ?   Was the desktop a bad choice ?  Any suggestions. 

Rookie

I'm still having trouble with the jw player. I will try this using the archive at home. Judging from the slide deck this is great! Thanks for putting this on.

Freelancer

Thank goodness for the archived presentation. I can do this at home in the "shop".

Freelancer

Hey drw36, thanks for the reply.  I did install the kickstarter version, will try the 30 day trial instead.  I'm sure that wil fix it.  Great seminar and thanks to all responsible for the board!

Rookie

@Jim.Kurbel - Did you download and install the Kickstarter version of IAR Workbench? That version is size limited to 32k. You need the 30-day trial version which has no size limit.

Rookie

Trying now to reload the original ST Demo with the file suggested by the path below but get an error, "[Li016]:size limit exceeded: 378983>32768"

Any suggestions, please?

Rookie

@Geodynamo - per colheckman:Folks who are still waiting for their board, please email feedback@eetimes.com

Rookie

Greetings,

The STM32F4 Discovery Board has not been received: please provide which courrier is used and the tracking number for the shipment.

Regards,

Geodynamo

Rookie

Thank you nad see you tomorrow.

Rookie

Ok. Thanks. Seminar notes/flash drive very usefull. A pdf listing of relevent App Notes would be nice; website keeps timing out

Rookie

@scott93: You are welcome!

 

The USB key method of updating firmware you are referring to is "In-Application Programming" -- this is a user application bootloader in contrast to the bootloaders available in System Memory area.

 

There is an example in the zip file at this path to use this USB key method:

C:\STM32Seminar\Projects\FW_upgrade\Binary\readme.txt

This bootloader can be overwritten or updated because it is in user memory. The project file for this example is here: C:\STM32Seminar\Projects\FW_upgrade\EWARM\

Restored the original demo... thanks! :-)

Rookie

Ok, thanks. I'll probably need to know that from my testing & trying to get Eclipse IDE working.

Rookie

@scott93: The top part of the Discovery board is a ST-LINK/V2 debugger/programmer that can ALWAYS connect to the STM32F4 target device (on the back side of the board). This does not depend on the status of the firmware on that target MCU. You could not be a "bricking" type of situation with this board because you are not flashing the firmware of the STM32F4 using a erasable bootloader for example.

 

The USB bootloader that is built in to the STM32F4 device System Memory is based on USB DFU class. It cannot be erased or overwritten.

It has a built-in bootloader and can be re-flashed with a USB drive. Can you over-write the bootloader?

Rookie

Received Board on Monday (CT.)  Lots to wrap my head around.

Thank goodness for archives.  Thanks Jacob, EE Times, and Digi-Key 

Rookie

If you brick your board, there is some method to re-flash it with a usb by holding buttons down, so I understand

Rookie

See posts below...just did it and it is back to (close?) to the original demo with the Video Player, Image Browser, etc...

Rookie

@sm_research: 

(note that forward slashes from paths below may be stripped by this chat)

You can restore the original demo by building the project at this path extracted from the zip file: C:STM32SeminarProjectsDemonstrationEWARM

 

A binary (hex) file of the demo is also available at this path: C:STM32SeminarProjectsDemonstrationBinary

After running the example of the class, and powering down/up, I don't get the cool demo it came with from the factory.  How do I get that back?

Rookie

Now I am REALLY anxious to get that board!

Should solve a lot of issues with current projects!!!!!

Rookie

XPLORER FILES

take the generated C files, add them to the IAR project, include the H files in your main application files and call the init functions

That method allows you to make changes most easily...

Set yup a directory in the project to hold those filees and the documentation -- makes it easiest.

 

Rookie

@ST_Jean-Gael_Mouton thanks!

@mike impossible You can either copy/paste the code generated into your own project files, or take the generated C files, add them to the IAR project, include the H files in your main application files and call the init functions

Thanks rkally! I was looking for the original demo!

Rookie

@Moises102 - The STemWin was licesned by ST from Segger, and is royalty free for any projects you do on the STM-F4.

Rookie

STemWin is Free.

Yeah! that is Awesome!

Thank you Great.

Rookie

@polarbeardj: You can display the images and mjpeg video by placing those files on the root drive of a USB flash drive and plug that into the Micro USB port on the bottom of the Discovery board. The instructions are in this file (note that forward slashes in the below path might be stripped by the chat):

C:\STM32Seminar\Projects\Demonstration\readme.txt 

The Xplorer Tool is excellent....

You Just have to find the GPIO buttun under system.

Look at the upper left. Push the Configuration tab.

THEN look under SYSTEM -- middle of scrren.

Rookie

I see there is a Sagar Graphics Lib

is this going to be provided by ST 

or there is a fee to use is on an application?

Rookie

@superopamp You can open the F429Disco.ioc MicroXplorer from \STM32Seminar\Tools\MicroXplorer_F429_Disco_Config.

The project is the final version of what was described during the session, and the GPIO configs and generated source files are there.

Rookie

My display doesn't go back to the home screen.  How do I get that back?

Rookie

Excellent class. I'm going to reboot my machine to see it that solves the download problem I'm having with STLink.  It's strange the admin user does not generate an error message but the C:ProgramFiles/STMicroelectronics/st_toolset is NOT there.  Hope the re-boot solves this.  BTY- the MicroXplorer worked jsut fine.  Catch you later and thanks again for a great class. 

Rookie

C:\Users\Administrator\STM32Seminar\Projects\Demonstration will reload orginal (well almost) flashed app.

Rookie

Has anyone managed to play a video or view a jpg with the demo software?

Rookie

@gsteshen Nevermind, I was referring to an installation error. I had no issue with the license.

Rookie

The default demo is one of the projects in the sample code we downloaded.

Rookie

@dball37: (note that forward slashes from paths below may be stripped by this chat)

You can restore the original demo by building the project at this path extracted from the zip file: C:STM32SeminarProjectsDemonstrationEWARM

 

A binary (hex) file of the demo is also available at this path: C:STM32SeminarProjectsDemonstrationBinary

The presentation was great, and easy to follow.  To gain some experience with the tools, I reloaded the original application per the location that ST_Jean-Gael_Mouton mentioned.  It worked!

Rookie
@Mike46. The same IDE support C+ and CMSIS too

There are several tutorials on using Eclipse, I'll get some links. Google for it. Prepare for some grief. Get started using Atollic 1st; its Eclipse-based so the link script is usefull

Rookie

any notes on how the microxplorer code is incorporated into a project?

@gsteshen I had the same problem last night in getting an error when running EWARM. But I had not restarted my PC to finish installing some Windows updates. Once I rebooted, the EWARM errors went away and all was well.

Rookie

Eclipse + GNU tool chain YouTube

Rookie

Can the board be reset to demo default?

 

Rookie

Why the micro USB for the user USB instead of full sized female?

Rookie

Thanks to Jacob, EETimes, DigiKey, ...

Rookie

I am going to try put together an Eclipse + GNU

toolchain. Has anyone seen a tutorial on that?

 

Rookie

Yep Options are set to "ST_Link" still neo good.  I'm going back through the Getting Started doc to see if I missed something.

 

Thanks

Rookie

I've had grief trying to get Eclipse working. Read the Arm Plugin FAQ/bug-track before you start!

Rookie

Is there a way to import the I/O configuration for the discovery board into MicroXplorer?

 

Rookie

@dball37 the board is QVGA.

The STM32F429 supports up to 800 x 600

Hello from Albuquerque. Received the board in NM on Monday.

Rookie

Great presentation.  I wish that the board had made it to me by now in Mishawaka,Indiana. The archived information will be easier to go through now that I have heard it live.

Received my board.  Was able to setup development environment.  Very cool.  Thanks to all involved in making this happen.

I know power consumption is important.  Did see a few things about power consumption during setup of environment so worth exploring too.

Also- use of IAR Toolset is problematic due to being payware.  Maybe the class or the distributed software bundle should show more support for less expensive (free) development tools.

Rookie

Is there a link or resource that has the project that comes pre-installed on the STM32 F4 Discovery kit?  (I wan to be able to restore that!)

Rookie

GPIO is under System. Got it!

Rookie

I try again. Posting window doesn't like my efforts to write 'C-plus-plus'.

Any advice on C-plus-plus development with CMSIS would be welcome.

Rookie

Thank. Wow, the power available in this part, and the low cost to get a simple project running just boggles the mind! I can see that it'll take some time to get a full understanding of the system.

Rookie

Cannot activate EWARM. Getting error message when I'm trying to register. The error is coming from the license manager, that it cannot connect to the registration site. Tried it on two separate computers. Is there a workaround for it?

Rookie

Thanks for the board. It is great. I will post to the ST site as well if I don't see an answer here.

 

Rookie

Embest CooCox is the only one that I am aware of.

 

Thanks for the help. I have the driver installed now.

 

Rookie

Is there a BOM for the Board?

LCD part number?

 

Rookie

Thanks for this presentation.  Example with IAR worked well.  For the MicroXplorer, I got lost on the GPIO ... can't find it as someone mentioned. Not sure where the "button" is.

 

Rookie

Awesome!

That is great

Rookie

What is the highest resolution of the screen display?

Rookie

Very impressive presentation, thank you Jacob, ST, DigiKey, and EETimes.

?Just a question: where in the source code is the MicroXplorer output included?

 

Rookie

Thank you Jacob. Everything's working so far, now I just need some time to play....

Rookie

Great session looking forward to DSP tomorrow...

Rookie

Question:  If I don't wish to purchase a 3rd party development environment, does ST provide one or is there an Open Source variant?

Another Question:  Let's say I create a great app on the Discovery board.  How would I turn that into a product to sell?  In other words, I'll end up with C code plus some connections to the discovery board.  What are the next steps?

 

Thanks.

Part of our STem win graphics library you will see projects settings for Atollic which gnu w/ eclipse front end project settings. So you can run the graphics library under gnu too.

Should anything be displayed on the screen at this point on this device?

 

Rookie

where is the audi archived, please provide link

 

Rookie

Thanks.  Now I'll take the time to go through it slowly.

Thank you for the class!

Rookie

Thank you everyone who made this happen. Looks like I will be spending time playing with board today.

Thanks - good setup instructions worked the first time!

Rookie

Very nice seminar!...especially with the board. Thanks Jacob, EETimes, Digi-Key, and, of course, STM!!! Fast, but comprehensive with all of the prep work.

Rookie

have a good day and thankyou

Rookie

Note that if you hover your mouse over the pins in MicroXplorer it gives a lot larger popout reference window on that pin

Rookie

Thanks Jacob and EE Times.

Rookie

Thanks a lot. Have a great day everyone! looking forward to tomorrow's webinar.

Rookie

IAR is great tool, but expensive.

I would like to use Eclipse + GNU Graphics Lib would that be possible?

Rookie

Thank you for the class!

 

Good stuff ... Thanks !

 

Rookie

Thank you Jacob, hope to have the board in time for tomorrow's session

Rookie

Thanks for this presentation, Jacob.  It was fast, but comprehensive.

 

Rookie

Nice job Jacob... :-)

Rookie

Thanks --- Board working, example was load it and running, just not sufficient time for Xplore but working !!!!

Rookie

Thank you Jacob. Will be hearing you again tomorrow

Rookie

Thank you.  The tools seem easy to use.

Rookie

Thank you Rich, EETime, ST and Digikey

Rookie

very cool!   i'm impressed at the capability...   Thank you..  (still waiting for my board to try it.. :) )

 

Rookie

Very informal - thanks for your time.

 

Rookie

Nice Overview, Thank You.

Rookie

@scott93: The Segger STemWin library does support multiple frame buffers in addition to several other features to make smooth display transitions. Some of this would be covered in the next sessions.

 

More info in the library documentation: C:\STM32Seminar\Libraries\STemWinLibrary522_4x9i\Documentation\

Thanks.  That was great.

Rookie

Thanks, lots of good stuff!

Rookie

Thank you.  The hands on session was great.

Rookie

Do you have any advice on developing in C+ ? The header files are C -ready.

- Example projects

- C -structured drivers?

Excellent demo. Thanks.

Rookie

would the code generated by microxplorer be added to the User folder?

Bring on your questions!

See you tomorrow!

Rookie

Nice walk through on the chip and tools.

 

Rookie

Does the Graphics Lib support GNU compiler?

 

Rookie

Not finding the GPIO under the configuration tab.

 

Rookie
@Dennis. No. Usually the header file are under the application. Output file have files like .map

ST MicroXplorer v3.2 - where is available?

Rookie

Do you double-buffer video by toggling the two 'layers'/video-ram, using the horizontal-line interrupt? Any links to example-code? Thanks.

Rookie

Is there a way to reset the kit to its demo mode.

Rookie

@Kenneth Wyatt You can restore the original demo by building the project at this path extracted from the zip file: C:STM32SeminarProjectsDemonstrationEWARM

 

A binary (hex) file of the demo is also available at this path: C:STM32SeminarProjectsDemonstrationBinary

Question. All the header files are under 'output' folder under c source codes. Is it a custom practice with IAR workbench? 

Rookie
@Jim.Kurbel. please check your setting. Go to Project/Options/debugger and verify that you selected ST-LINK

How do we get back to the default program after trying all the examples - pressing "reset"?

Blogger

Thanks colheckman. That's great.

Rookie

@hpreinitz: The discovery board needs to plugged into the PC using a USB cable in order for you to see an entry in Device Manager. If the driver install was not successful, you should at least see a "STM32 STLink" device under "Other Devices" with a yellow exclamation mark. 

leonet99_ Yes, archive will be available aprox 1pm EST.  You should be able to follow along fine with the downloaded presentation, and supporting materials

Rookie
@lowfreq. I need more information.

I am going to go through this session at home; My company blocks the player.

2 questions: Is this session going to be archived like the ones before?

Is it structured in the way that can be done later or are we going to be at a disadvantage (I mean the people that can't view the live session at work)? Thanks.

Rookie

The Altium files for the new STM32F4 based Eval. and Discovery boards would be available later in Q1'14. Please contact your local sales team to get access to it in the new year.

Slide 21, after download and debug, I get an error: "failed to load flash loader...."

 

Rookie

Another data point: My WinXP liked the new version of the driver.

Rookie

I tried everything in the getting started document and I don't see the driver in the device manager.

 

Rookie

Are there Altium Library for the STM32F429?  Will ST release the stm32f4-discovery Altium files?

 

Rookie

Thanks IAR_Ori_Elisha - will attempt to run under Wine once system arrives...

in iar i have a bar at the bottom... updating browse information????

What is that about?

Rookie

At a recent ST-Seminar they said to use the 'old' ST-Link driver for Win-XP. I got it working; XP didn't like the new driver. Please support Linux!

Rookie
No. The USB will not run under WINE.

Off to the races! (SysTick running at 50 ms and 1000 ms) per slides...

Rookie

got lost and was not able to follow fast enough... and you'all got too far ahead... I'll now wait till the end and play throught the recorded version.  Sounds like good stuff... I just got to far behind.

 

Rookie
No. Only Windows. you can run the WINE emulator under Linux. They will run under WINE.

Even if you get it working in Wine under Linux, will the USB ST-Link work? Doubt it!. Maybe setup a GDB server?

Rookie

@all You go to Tools->Options->Editor, and check the "Show line numers" checkbox to display the line numbers in IAR

 

A couple guys in the ST-Discovery forum tried to put the LCD in Landscape mode from portrait, but got a missing column. Would be nice to see that working

Rookie

@everiste32 and anyone else having ST-LINK driver install issues on Win 8.1:

Please follow the troubleshooting steps in the Getting Started document on page 4 and 5 to force the install.


If those steps did not resolve the issue and Windows cannot find a driver, then from Device Manager, right click the "STM32 STLink" device entry with the exclamation mark and manually point to the driver directory (where the batch file is located).

No connection issues. Tried it on two computers!

Rookie

Do these tools run under Linux either native or via Wine??

@gstesen. I believe you have a connection issue. Please try again.

@everiste32 

 Please follow the troubleshooting steps in the Getting Started document on page 4 to force the install.

 If those steps did not resolve the issue and Windows cannot find a driver, then from Device Manager manually point to the driver directory (where the batch file is located).

@gstesen. Can you tell me what is the error message?

@polonia see  Setting up the STM32F429 Discovery Board for Sessions 3 to 5 hands-on workshops (PDF) above for full details  of what to download and where

 

@hpreinitz: Please follow the troubleshooting steps in the Getting Started document on page 4 to force the install.

 

If those steps did not resolve the issue and Windows cannot find a driver, then from Device Manager manually point to the driver directory (where the batch file is located).

Voice is dropping off

 

Rookie

@scott93 Yes, the bus matrix allows simultaneous transfers as long as the masters don't try to access the same bus at the same time. For example, you can DMA from a periphral to the SRAM while the CPU can fetch instructions from the Flash.

 

I have not yet received the Kit, Can I still downlod the SW package? Where?

 

Rookie

ST-Link device driver doesn't seem to install.  Using Windows 8.1 and running batch file as administrator.

Rookie

Does having a multi-layer bus mean multiple transfers (CPU-Memory; DMA, et) occur simultaneously?

Rookie

Problem: getting failure on registration of IAR Embedded Workbench

Rookie

I couldnt get the driver to load for Windows 8.1.  I ran the batch file and nothing was installed.

Rookie

Ooops, that's "received".

Rookie

mmmendon_  Just suggest changing browsers and refreshing. Live audio may be blocked on your network, but you should be able to hear the archive, which will be available around 1pm EST

Rookie

If you haven't received your board, we're sorry it is taking so long. We thought we'd left enough time for the delivery services to work. The good news is that you can still take the class from the archive once the boards have arrived. We'll continue to monitor the chats over the next few days and you can contact Jacob or ST afterward for assistance.

Enjoy!

Rookie

Ready to Rock" but not "Roll" unless UPS appears....

Can we get this show on the road? lol!!!!

I'm going to stick the USB cable into myself and blink my own lights... maybe tomorrow I can try the board too...  ;-)

Rookie

Good morning! With about 20 minutes to go before this hands-on session, We need to remind everyone to go through the "Setting up the STM32F429 Discovery Board..." PDF document posted in the "Special Educational Materials" area above the Live Chat on this page and install IAR tools and ST-LINK drivers prior to the beginning of the session. You'll need to have done so and followed the instructions to set up the board, in order to take full advantage of the course.

 

Rookie

Kyoei5, thats a good idea. That way you get to ask questions of Jacob live.

Staff

Thanks Rich. I'm still going to follow along live too.

Rookie

Greetings from Vermont

@Barnwell_R: If you have admin rights on your machine, you can try launching the installer by right clicking on the installer executable and selecting "Run As Administrator". Otherwise you may need to contact your IT department for assistance.

@Devad: This ST-LINK/V2 driver will work for Win XP SP3: http://www.st.com/web/en/catalog/tools/PF258167

After completing the install, please follow the troubleshooting instructions in the Getting Started document on page 4 to force the install. 

Hi from Raleigh, NC.  Board up and running.  Looking forward to another great class. : )

Rookie

@Barnwell_R - Looks like your corporate IT does not allow you to install that, or any(?), app onto your company computer? Need your boss to scream at them? May need one of them to install using their "admin" login.

Rookie

Received my board on Monday. Everything installed successfuly and ready to go!

Rookie

Hi from Santa Rosa, CA

 

Rookie

I am getting the following message when I try to install IAR Embedded Workbench:

Are there any known workarounds for this?

 

Thanks

Rookie

Good morning. Sorry to say I'm having a problem with the STlink install. It reports success no errors but is does not appear in the device list.  I installed it on a Windows XP which looks like it's supported. I've tried several times. Removed , downloaded and installed. Still no STMlink* driver. Is there another driver just for XO ?

 

Rookie

Good morning! With less than 1 hour to go before this hands-on session, I wanted to remind everyone to go through the "Setting up the STM32F429 Discovery Board..." PDF document posted in the "Special Educational Materials" area above the Live Chat on this page and install IAR tools and ST-LINK drivers prior to the beginning of the session. If you have not done so already, please download all materials and follow instructions to set up the board.

@Rob: I just tried the download link for the zip file, and was able to successfully download.

@Rob_    Downloaded fine for me, file size is huge, so it took a few minutes.

Rookie

Reveived the board on Monday, ready for the class.

Rookie

Has anyone else had issues trying to access the "Hands-On Example Package (zip file)" using the link from the classroom page?  I consistently get "The connection was reset" when I attempt to use the link.   I had no issues with any of the other links and downloads.

@mike.haley I just tried the systick example using the path in the slides and it seemed to work OK. Did you download the 'Hands-On Example Package' into the folder suggested in the  Setting up the STM32F429 Discovery Board for Sessions 3 to 5 hands-on workshops (PDF) ?

If so one other thing you could try is launching IAR Embedded Workbench as an Administrator (right click on Embedded Workbench in Start Menu and select "Run As Administrator") and see if the problem is resolved.

@mroussin.Please install in different directory than previous IAR IDE.
@mroussin.please dowload the latest 6.7 release. If you didn't download 6.7 before , you will get 30 more days.

@eetimesar -- Nothing here either -- My guess is that shipping them to the boondocks (Canada) adds a day.

Rookie

With the SysTick example I'm getting illegal path to project member C:\STM32Seminar\...\...\...\...\  etc. errors.  With all the \...\  I would guess my install should have made more subdirectories. 

Rookie

Is the any USP Tracking Number for the shipments to Canada? I haven't received the board yet.

Thanks!

Rookie

Mine came UPS 2nd day air from Digikey.  I just finished the install.

A reminder

Check 'Setting up the STM32F429 Discovery Board for Sessions 3 to 5 hands-on workshops (PDF)' above the chat area on this page.

It has a complete description of what you need to do to prepare for the hands-on sessions.

You will need to download the software and set-up the board before the start of the hands-on sessions.

No board yet.

It's Canader eh?

Rookie

Does anyone know how the boards were shipped? 

@mroussin. Yes, most of the exercises required more than 32k memory.

What was your 30 days trial release number?

I'm reading through the setup instructions and have one concern.  It looks like you are asking to load the time limited version of IAR.  My problem is that I have already loaded this in the past.  My 30 day trial is up and now am limited on code size.  I haven't looked through the files, but will this be an issue somewhere down the line in these  training sessions?

Rookie

Got the board and downloaded files. No problems with system-tick example. Good job.

Rookie

Also received my dev board  today.  WOHOO!!!  Is it Wednesday yet!!!!!

Rookie

Just installed IAR Workbench, USB driver, and MicroXplorer with no issues on Win 7 64-bit.  Just an FYI for those of you having issues with installing on Win 7 64-bit.

Rookie

@tinmuk. IT's seem to me that you have network communication issue. Either your 

download rate is too slow or other netwrok issue. I am downloading at this moment and was able to download the whole image within less than 2 minutes.

I have not been able to download the IAR workbench. I keep getting a "download interrupted" message and after resuming a number of times, I only get a 1k file that dosn't run.

 

Is there a different way of getting the workbench installed? I am running win 7 pro, 64 bit

Rookie

@rob_young Windows 7, 64-bit should be fine.

Check 'Setting up the STM32F429 Discovery Board for Sessions 3 to 5 hands-on workshops (PDF)' above the chat area on this page.

Is the discovery board supported on Windows 7, 64-bit?

Rookie

I haven't received the Discovery Board yet. How would I find out if I qulified for one and when I should receive it?

Rookie

@ravisravis IAR is windows based IDE but your can used virtual machine or EMULATOR

like WINE to run Windows over Linux. You can run IAR IDE on such EMULATOR.

In order to extend the license or check on price please contact IAR Systems at

650-287-4250.

Thanks,

Anybody know if there are any Linux based IAR solutions for this project ?

 

Rookie

After 30 days, how can I extend my license? How much it will cost?

@padams did you read ' Setting up the STM32F429 Discovery Board for Sessions 3 to 5 hands-on workshops (PDF)' linked further up this page?

It will give you all the instructions to download software and set up the board to be ready for the hands-on sessions.

I found the answer to my question.

There is a utility at http://www.st.com/web/en/catalog/tools/PF258168# that can be used to download the hex file.

The hex file can be found at \STM32Seminar\Projects\Demonstration\Binary

Rookie

I have a licensed copy of IAR limited to 256K code size, so I cannot compile and load the demo program through IAR. Is there a tool to download the hex file to the Discovery Board?

Rookie

Downloaded the materials, zip file, and PDF. Looking forward to installing the IAR toolkit.

Rookie

Christmas comes early. Dev board makes a great stocking stuffer.
