Thanks Jacob, for a very interesting intro to this dev kit!  I had a lot of fun doing the exercises and everything worked the way it was supposed to!  I look forward to using what I learned here to do more experimenting with this board.  Who knows, maybe someday I will actually develop a product using this or a similar part.  Thanks again to everyone involved, including EE Times University and Digi-Key for supplying the dev kit for free!!!

Unable to get "STM32 imager" to run on windows XP

"This application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135)"

I can not locate this program on the ST website to see if it is compatable with XP

Blogger

Would you please help me figure out why i always receive "cannot export image" error? Thank you!

Rookie

@theslawek: Can I also get a copy of your config guide for ST micros? Thanks!

Rookie

Finally received the board today. Dec 23, 2013. Will start work maybe tomorrow on the labs.

 

Rookie

Cool!!

No Problem!!

I guess that is what I will start learning on after the IAR trial wears out!!

Rookie

@geraldfryjr - Thanks for the Code::Blocks update, I planned to look into that one for this board. Code::Blocks is a good cross-platform IDE. I've used it before on Windows and Linux for AVR work using the Atmel STK600 dev board.  Too bad the other tools listed are not available for Linux.

Rookie

Hey guys check out this Code Blocks Open sources IDE system as it may be an alternative to use with this board.

By one of the screenshots it shows that it is supported here,

Rookie

I'm a mechanical guy with a need to migrate into the micro computer control world.

These five sessions have been tremendous first steps for me in that direction.

I will be making ample use of the archived classes.  

Thank You, Jacob, Digi Key, St, EETimes and all who made this possible.

Wishing much success to everyone with their micro control projects and endeavors. --- Ron B. 

Rookie

This is an impressive demo!  Thanks to all involved for putting this together!

Rookie

Than you much Jacob!! This has been a very good series.

Rookie

A well desired THANK YOU to all involved in putting together an outstanding presentaion. EETimes Uni, DigiKey, ST Micro and Jacob and anyone else I sorry I missed you.

Rookie

Thank you Jacob.

It's been a very challenging and exciting experience for me.

 

Rookie

Finally got it I didn't see anyone else mention but the path specifications for Labs 2 and 3 are wrong.

 

Rookie

This was really, really great.  Thank you so much to everyone who made it happen.  Really impressed.

Rookie

Thank you, really enjoyed the longer session today.

THANKS ... THANKS TO ALL HELPERS, DIGI-KEY, EE TIMES,  ST Micro,  JACOB, and anyone miss)!!!!!

Rookie

All it needs is 3 driver fets and a lithium battery, and it could maybe levitate over a magnet

Rookie

I forgot the gyro =D

Rookie

Although it's hard to beat free developement boards with LCD's

 

Rookie

@scott93 thanks i wasn't aware of that forum. Also thanks for the You Tube link!!!!!!

Rookie

My background is PICs; there so friendly, they've spoiled me

Rookie

@scott93. Yes (utube lessons), that would be a great asset. I am moving over from ATMega world and would like the details on the periphs presented by an embedded designer.

Rookie

Theres a Discovery ST forum already https://my.st.com/public/STe2ecommunities/mcu/Lists/STM32Discovery

Rookie

@ALL (DIGY, ST, EE times), what about if you add a Forum in your website, as a means to Follow this Intro and the Discovery Kit!!  On the long run will payoff due to the creativity as a Pool of People (Expert and Begginers)-- Energy should not stop here.

Rookie

Brief 5 - 20 tutorials on the MCUs peripherals and applications should be on youtube/ST website.
Yes, I can read a databook, but its more work.

The best youtube tutorial I've come across, a great model for going through programming examples:

"Embedded Systems Programming Lesson [x]"

Rookie

i BELIEVE @ST WILL RELEASE SOON SOMETHING LIKE THE IAR !! BUT IS NOT READY YET!!   RIGHT @ST_STUART ??

Rookie

AT_Stuart_McLaren.  Didn't see in example where I could dynamically update data.  Seems like I had to recompile to change image?  Thanks.

Rookie

I was curious why IAR workbench was chosen for this course.  What are some of its advantages compared to the other options?

Rookie

Ditto on follow up classes for the STM32f429 Disc Kit. I would like to see an in depth on the LCD controller an Chrome art. My choice of format would be a longer presentation of features, tips on using periphs, followed by a brief hands on overview of teh lab. It is easier to do the labs offline, having a .zip of all the files needed! JMHO

Rookie

@WILLYH the schematics for the STM32F429 Discovery Boards are available the User Manual UM1670 here http://www.st.com/web/catalog/tools/FM116/SC959/SS1532/PF259090

Thanks Jacob, ST, Digi-Key, EET, et al for this truly interactive, hands-on hardware+sw dev intro. I agree with those who've said they would like to see followup courses continuing with this board—that would be great, definitely.

Rookie

OK.  WE FINISHED  A 5 DAYS  INTRO.  HOW ALL THESE PEOPLE CAN KEEP UP FROM NOW?  ANY IDEAS? SUCH CREATION OF A  FORUM?  A PLACE TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH THE PROGRESS??   AND COLABORATION AS A POOL OF PEOPLE TOGETHER???

Rookie

Q:  Actually I would use the DSP for motion control in real time, but I would imagine a webinar project doing that might not be practical. Doing enough math to map to a CLUT from temperature would give enough basics (I think) to extend to real motion control use.

A: OK makes sense to pull in motion control to make use of the higher math.  Thanks.

@steve61 we don't have an example that does exactly that but you could start from the graphics examples and build your own

Thank you all involved, Jacob, EETIMES, DigiKey, ST, this was a great introductory class, it provided a very good overview of the STM32F4 functionality.

I would love to have follow-up more in-depth hands-on series on the same eval board, since so many people have the board, e.g., on tools or DSP/ADC or graphics.  Just an idea.

 

Rookie

THanks again for doing hands on classes.  Posting the day 3 - 5 slides in advance was very useful since we could go through them before the class. More handson classes using the board I'd enjoy would be

Using the peripheral libraries

Creating a USB HID device

Actually I would use the DSP for motion control in real time, but I would imagine a webinar project doing that might not be practical. Doing enough math to map to a CLUT from temperature would give enough basics (I think) to extend to real motion control use.

Rookie

@ST_STUART: WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO UPDATE THE ARTWORK FOR THIS BOARD??? WE NEED FOR THSI BOARD TOO. PLEASE PASS THIS FEEDBACK.  I AM INTERESTED IN THOSE EXPASIONS (WIRELESS), I SAW.

Rookie

Q:I would love it the blogger's posts were somehow easier to find in the stream of user posts.

Would love a webinar to do a sensor -> A/D -> DSP -> D/A (or pwm) (3 color LED color shift from temperature and CLUTs?) Sufficiently complex to be meaningful for DSP, but simple enough to implement with online webinar. (Prebuilt CLUT would be needed)

 

A: A/D digitizing temperature and then creating a related color sounds like a neat project, but how do you envision using the DSP capabilities SilverSpoon99?

 

Just finished, got everything to work.  Do you have an example where we can display data i.e what the AD converters is reading.  Also create buttons to control my tests.  

Great series, thank you all for your effort.

Steve

Rookie

Thanks St_Jeff, I amusing CoIDE an GCC. There is some limited STM32f4x7 support on the old Discovery kit. Hoping that more will follow for th enew kit! :-)

 

Rookie

@WIILYN - the headers are different between the two Discovery Boards

@SilverSpoon99 Thank you for your time and we will take this under consideration for future webinars.

Rookie

@ST_STUART   ARE THOSE EXPASION BOARD COMPATIBLES TO THIS BOARD ??? 

Rookie

Thanks SilverSpoon99.  I may do something like this as part of a follow-up blog on EDN or my newsletter.

Blogger

There appear to be inconsistancies in the directory paths and in Capitalization in Lab 2, between the slides and the actual files.  I finally got it working though.

Thank you for taking the time to prepare and present the course.  I found it quite helpful.

Rookie

Q:Will StemWin output compile on other than EWARM?

A: You may use STemWIN on any of the IDEs that support the STM32F4xx microcontrollers.  STemWIN is not just limited to support under IAR EWARM.  If you have another IDE you like better, it should work just fine.

Bobybacs0, feel free to send me an email with your questions and I will get you an answer.  Thanks!

Blogger

@bobybacs0 you can post here. Responses may not be in realtime but we'll monitor the chat area

bobybacs0, I believe Jacob included his contact info in the last slides and invited folks to reach out to him. It wont be live, however.

CEO

Will StemWin output compile on other than EWARM?

Rookie

one more question: those who didn't reached to the live session where can we send our questions while listening to the archived version ?

Rookie

@WILLYH we have some extensions for an earlier STM32F4 Discovery boards

@JACOB BENINGO: THANKS FOR THE PRESENTATIONS!!!   GREAT JOB.  I WAS PLEASE FOR THIS LAST LAB.  @PLANNING EE TIMES:  LABS SESSIONS NEEDS MORE TIME, NOT 45 MINUTES

Rookie

Jacob  great course even as rusty as I am, I was able to get things to run a couple I needed to go back afterwards and do over a few times but I learned a lot about the enviroment. A really amazing chipset STM, Jacob you did a very good job of explaining things, thanks to EE University and Digikey for their timly response inspite of terrible weather.

I still have a lot to learn but this was a great start.

Anyway thanks Jacob and everyone involved for this good and exciting course

Rookie

Loving this ST proc STM!

Rookie

This has been a great learning experience. Thank you everyone involved!

Rookie

@RichQ: here in Romania, I can talk with guys from Compec a local distributor for "RS Components" they provide me this board in 4 days :)

 

Rookie

Thanks Jacob, EETimes, and ST for the excellent workshop!

Rookie

RE: interesting in a course -- ADC sensor with DSP

FOR  @ST:  DO YOU HAVE PLUGGIN OPTIONS BOARDS ????  THE BOARD HAS HEADERS. 

Rookie

@RichQ - Thank you!

 

Rookie

kriskoorndyk, I've alerted Colleen and she said she'll reach out to you.

CEO

SilverSpoon99 correct.  That example doesn't have user interaction.  Just example of how to display.  

Blogger

@dxrose Thank you from ST!

Rookie

Q:  Question for the ST folks: What is the CN3 connector (ACP/RF) on the upper right of the board for?  It looks like it has I2C and power.  Is it a connector for a wireless module?

A: You are correct that it brings out the I2C port.  If you belong to the Apple peripheral support environment, you'll recognize what this is.  Alternately, this gives the user a very good port to plug in our RFID/EEPROM device.

Thanks Jacob for a very interesting series.  Thanks to the sponsors, thanks for the tools and time.  Thanks to EE times for hosting this.  Hope to see more like this!

Rookie

Thanks JDag, I will make a note of it!

Blogger

lab 3 appears to be working... I assume it just cycles the slices and button and repeats? No user-interaction?

Rookie

Thank you for some great lessons and thanks to all the sponsors One of the things I found when growing beyond the arduino and launchpad offerings was a very steep learning curve, but you have made that curve a lot less steep. 

Thanks also to the sponsors you were all very generous and it is much appreciated.

Like a needle on an indicator?

Rookie

@geraldfryjr - suggest contacting IAR about options to extend license

@ST-PR GUY:  Thanks!  How do I contact Colleen?  :-)

 

Rookie

Thank you to all

ST you have an nice ARM processor

Digikey thank you for the sponsoring

EEtimes a very good course

Rookie

Jacob, another job well ! I would like to thank all the parties (EETIMES, ST, etc ..) that made this possible. I will certainly continue to experiment with this board ! I learnt a lot ...

Rookie

How about a much more basic course allowing us to hands on build a small program from scratch?

Rookie

Sprite is a beverage ....... a computer graphic that may be moved on-screen and otherwise manipulated as a single entity

Blogger

FOR EE  TIMES:  I STILL BELIVE THE BEST FOR THIS SSEION IS TO OPEN AN ACCOUNT IN USSTREAM, JUSTINTV, ETC.   THEY OFFER STREAM MEDIA FOR FREE!!  AND THE PRESENTER CAN UPLOAD LIVE LABTOP IMAGE, AND EVERYONE OF US, FOLLOW!!   BUT  THIS LAST SESSION WAS THE BEST TO FOLLOW -- SLOW .  THNAKS  THANKS  TO ALL THE SPONSORS: DIGI-KEY, ST, AND PEOPLE WHO HELP!!!

Rookie

@bobybacs0, as the Canadian attendees will tell you, it's the logistics of shipping that are the problem with including Europe. If we can work that out, we will be able to offer handouts there. But no promises yet...

CEO

Thanks Jacob, EETimes Univ, IAR, DigiKey and STM. This was fun.  

Rookie

Sensor processing and fusion would be a cool class

Thanks to the Jacob and the sponsors for a great introduction to this really cool processor. I look forward to reviewing the archives and learning how to utilize more of the capabilities of this product.

Rookie

Question for the ST folks: What is the CN3 connector (ACP/RF) on the upper right of the board for?  It looks like it has I2C and power.  Is it a connector for a wireless module?

Keep these kinds of things coming EE Times!

Rookie

@Kriskoorndyk -- Please contact Colleen and we'll make sure you get another board.

Rookie

I guess there are others too from Europe who can benefit from this kind of classes

Rookie

What other topics would you find interesting in a course?

Blogger

Thank you for this class.

Rookie

Thanks, Jacob and company.

Rookie

Graet presentation Jacob!!

I have one question, As I am still beginning to learn C language what happens when my 30day IAR trial is used up can it be renewed?

Or should I start looking into the Opensource IDE's to start learnig that to begin with, as CooCox was mentioned. 

Rookie

What was something that you liked and thought could be done better?

Blogger

Thanks to Staff & Mgmt of EETimes/UBM, STM Microelectronics+IAR, DigiKey and our instructor Jacob for an informative series of presentations plus the hardware dev board provided. Looking forward to future sessions in 2014. HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!!

Rookie

Thanks to Jacob and the good folks at Digi-Key, EE Times, STMicro, and any other sponsors for this class. I'd be interested in other sources (e.g., texts, websites) that has more information on using STM32F429 capabilities.

Rookie

@FPutnam It's not a sprite. It's a complete layer with a transparent alpha background.

Is there any way to find a sponsor to get free boards in Europe too for upcoming hands on lab ?

Rookie

thanks! great series. i'd love to use this micro in a real prj.

Until next time,

Rookie

Thanks to you Jacob and also the sponsors. EETimes Univ., Digi-key, ST. and IAR.
Good show!

Rookie

Much better pace today, thanks... my slow system still force me to pipeline , but it all worked out, so NP! :-)

 

Rookie

Thanks, it was the "I" that got me. working now

Rookie

LAB 3 should show  a 3 pices PIE CHART and an ARM  Button

Rookie

Thank you very much to Jacob, EE Times and Digi-Key for a great hands-on webinar.

Thanks, Jacob and all sponsors! Very worthwhile and interesting!

It would be great to have a follow on set of sessions on the STM32 with live video and more time.

Today was better with the slower pace, thanks!

Rookie

@Kriskoorndyk I dont have the answer for that but hopefully one of the other monitors here do.

 

CEO

Thanks for the course.  Well done and free board + hands on makes this one of the best so far.

 

 

Rookie

My free board came from DIgikey, THANKS DIGIKEY!

Rookie

Q: the "armed" button - is a bmp or is drawn? how about the other icons?

A: The ARMED button is bmp and skinned.  You may do the same thing with other icons and widgets.

Thanks to all for this seminar 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Was example 2 considered a sprite?

Rookie

Any recommended DSP material for STM32F429?

 

Rookie

Thank you.  Can't wait to experiment and learn more.

Rookie

I want to second the more hands-on lab sentiment.  I've been to several of these classes, and the lab definitely added a new dimention to the information provided.

Rookie

Thanks for the great lectures and handson lab

Thank you for this class. Very good. :)

Rookie

thank you both eetimes and STMicro for a very nice seminar series..

and Jacob thank you for all the hard work you put in to make this possible

 

marc

Rookie

Thank you Jacob great presentation, very informative.

Rookie

Thanks Jacob, Rich, ST folks, ST, and DigiKey, and thanks to whomever supplied the boards!

Rookie

That is a very good class. Enjoyed a lot. Thx

Rookie

Still stuck on 2.  IT interupped this and so I fell behind

Rookie

Thanks Jacob, EE Times, ST and Digi-Key.

Rookie

Lab 3 is more demonstrative if you run it with and without making the one line change.  You then see it was just one line to add the ARMED button

Thanks to EETimes and Rich, STM, DigiKey, and Jacob.

This was excellent and very helpful.

Rookie

Absolute -- thanks everyone (Jacob, ST, Digi-Key) for putting this together.

Would love to see this all working with GCC.  IAR is just too expensive for many of us.

 

Manager

Jacob is there any way to get Altium Lib and Files for the Kit.

We want to speed up development with the STM32 Parts.

Rookie

Outstanding content! Thanks Jacob, STM for the free board, Digi-Key, etc. The BEST WEBINAR I have ever attended !!!

Rookie

Q: Can I use this with an image sensor to display video real time ?

A: Yes you can make quite a nice design using the digital camera interface to take the video information in from a camera module and then outputing the data onto the attached LCD.  If you obtain our STM32F429I_Eval board, it comes with all the hardware to make this happen.

Thanks again Jacob.  The longer session was much more effective!

Merry Christmas everyone!

 

And the ST Engineers and FAE will hang around as long as the questions keep coming!

 

Rookie

All projects built and worked perfectly. Congratulations and thanks to all involved in organizing this series.

Rookie

Thank you Jacob and all others for great webinar series. It was very interesting and great starter into STM F4 family.

Rookie

Thanx for the oppurtunity to try this micro.

 

Rookie

@RichQ - I just received my free eval board today (it was sent to my previous address) and it was damaged in the box.  The board was somehow pushed through the plastic packaging at the bottom and a couple of the headers were bent.  The LCD also appears to be damaged.  Any way I can get a replacement?  Can you send me an email where I can send some pictures of the board?

 

Rookie

Very good presentation given the difficulting of doing labs on-line.  Thanks to STMicro & DigiKey!

Rookie

Very good class.  One of the best that I have attended.   Having the kit was a real benefit.  Jacob did an outstanding job.

 

Rookie

the "armed" button - is a bmp or is drawn? how about the other icons?

 

Rookie

Course too short - needs to go for a few weeks.  Learned a lot and will continue the learning with the tools and web links published.  Thanks everyone who made this event happen......

 

 

Rookie

Yes, Thanks for the course and the development kit is excellent!

Rookie

cool stuff!   still waiting for my board, but am very impressed at what i've seen!  Thank you for the training and the board...  awesome :)

Rookie

Thanks everyone!  How are things going?

Thanks, Jacob and class sponsors STM, EETimes, Digikey!!

Great opportunity that you have made available

Rookie

Thank you, I really enjoyed it.

Rookie

THANKS FOR GREAT SERIES! And thanks to all the sponsors.

Rookie

You just need to put all the edits in as comments like you did in Lab 1/3, Jacob. Otherwise was great and I guess I should mute the phone...

Rookie

Awesome, thank you Jacob, Rich, ST_guys, EE Time, ST and Digi-key. Very good!

Rookie

Rookie

Two layers  working!

 

Rookie

Missed those LCD_LogoLayer() and LogoLayerScrollVBCallback() edits (phone rang). Guess I better re-run the audio another time...

Rookie

Q: can this ide prompt for variables?

A:  The IAR EWARM IDE gives you the abilty to search for a variable in the current file or across all files in the workspace.  If your question concerns showning the contents of the variable, you can hover the cursor over the variable name and the contents will appear if they are available.

 

Is this considered a sprite?

Rookie

The definition of "LTDC_Pixelformat_RGB888" is located in the file stm32f4xx_ltdc.h

Rookie

RichQ- Audio streamer doesn't work too well. Making archive audio downloadable as a file would be nice.

Rookie

For another good reference book, "Beginning C" by Ivor Horton available at Fry's if you have one close to you.

 

This link is not valid on my system!

** SLIDE 29 **

 

 

Rookie

Lab 1 done. Slowed down on not running the STM tool as Admin - didn't want to export for me. Now it's working fine. Already in half through the LAb 2.

Rookie

I would suggest that in futur presentations the presenter's PC view be pushe to participants as a screen capture or other so that we may follow live as to what should occur. Time for these labs being so short, it is very difficult to go from the slides to the «no board» demo.

 

More time would have been an asset.

 

Thanks

@bkingsland14c01 512MB is available if external SDRAM is used and 2MB if internal flash is used minus the size of the application in internal flash. You can have multiple frame buffers defined and filled with one frame buffer active at a time.

 

 

** SLIDE 15 **

 

 

Rookie

The Frame buffer size is limited to the size of your internal 256K RAM or external SDRAM of 512K.

Morning all. Other useful C books are the ANSI Standard and a book on Data Structures and Algorithms using C...

Rookie

Would it theoretically be possible to drive an old laptop's display with this, or is that type of display in a different class of complexity than the type that's on the eval board?

DOTClock LCD information will be MHz.

What board memory limits the Frame Buffer Size?

 

** SLIDE 10 **

 

 

Rookie

Parameter units for the LCD datasheet snippet are nano seconds.

Rookie

Ref below, I'm mainly curious about the "dotclk" frequency (MHz).

DavidWR - boards were sent to Canada via mail (not UPS) so will be a bit slow due to Christmas...

What are the parameter units? Hsync, etc.?

@tinmuk - I used 'C Programming A Modern Approach' by K.N. King to teach myself C.

Rookie

 

** SLIDE 6 **

 

 

Rookie

@ST_Wai_Chin I agree with the Stack Overflow comment - The K & R C book is the definitive reference, but it's not a great tutorial.

Rookie

Less of a book and much more of an on line reference, I would suggest http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/7ubXYU/www.acm.uiuc.edu/webmonkeys/book/c_guide/#

as an open window while you learn to code in C.

Hello tinmuk, I recommend "The C programming Language" by Kernigan and Ritchie.

Rookie

Hello from St-Basile, Québec

Rookie

@tinmuk Take a look here:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/562303/the-definitive-c-book-guide-and-list

In the beginner list I would recommend the C primer by Prata.

Rookie

For another good reference book, "Beginning C" by Ivor Horton available at Fry's if you have one close to you.

FOR @ST:  the Dev Board has Headers pins, do you have Option Boards to Pluggin -- a nice option will be either a WIFI or any other wireless ...

Rookie

Can anyone reccomend any good books or classes for beginnig C?

If you haven't already, download the PowerPoint from the EE Times University
classroom page.  Above the Live Chat
window, there's a heading which reads "Special Educational
Materials." Right-click on the link for "Today's Slide Deck,"
save it to your desktop, then open it so you can follow along with Jacob.

For those still wondering about missing boards, I found my board in the main office after getting an email from EET giving me the name of the person that accepted UPS delivery. It arrived on Monday.

Hello tinmuk, The STM32 does not support BASIC.  Only C, C+ , and JAVA.

Rookie

Good morning from Hamilton ON - board arrived yesterday!!! :)

I have also enjoyed learing about this board. I'm a mechanical guy tring to learn about automation and this is helping. I guess I will need to learn C. Will this board work with BASIC?

 

Rookie

Good afternoon from Frigid Boston!

Rookie

@Rodney0 - there is a guide for setting up the board for the class above the chat area 'Setting up the STM32F429 Discovery Board for Sessions 3 to 5 hands-on workshops (PDF)'

 

More documents on getting started with the kit here http://www.st.com/web/catalog/tools/FM116/SC959/SS1532/PF259090

Good morning from Sebastopol, CA. Finally starting to warm up here after a week long cold snap.

Rookie

Thanks steve. They should be available in the archive for several months at least

CEO

is there such a thing as a configuration guide?

Rookie

Good mourning from Santa Rosa.  Your series has been great, appreciate the effort.  It's like taking a drink out of a fire hidrent but rerunning the lectures works great.  Glad to hear you will keep them on line.  

Rookie

Thanks ST-PR Guy! This is highly interesting.

Rookie

@gdolson. Glad to hear it. The teach team has worked hard to make these valuable and Jacob has done a terrific job!

Rookie

Thanks ST-PR Guy! I have enjoyed the sessions thus far, very informative.

Rookie

@gdolson The session is scheduled for an hour. Based on feedback, Jacob will slow down a bit and probably take 45-55 minutes. Then we'll be around to answer questions for as long as the flow of questions lasts!

Rookie

Approximately how long will todays session be?

Rookie

Good morning!

@Geodynamo -- No worries. The slides and audio will be live for a good while!

Rookie

tchengm1v_I'll reach out to you regarding the board

Rookie

Good morning,

The demo board arrived last night: it will take some time to catch-up; will you leave the slides and the chat on the site for some time after today?

Geodynamo

Rookie

I did the same thing also did not receive the board.

Rookie

Guillermo.Acosta_  I'll be reaching out to you.

Rookie

Guillermo.Acosta_  Let me look into this for you

Rookie

I never received the board. I email feedback@eetimes.com as instructed, but no response so far. Does anyone know if we will eventually receive it? Is anyone else in this situation? Thanks.

Good morning, from Huntsville, Al.  Sessions have been great and very informative.  Thanks, have a great holiday season.

Rookie

@theslawek: Would you be so kind as to send me a copy of your configuration guide for ST micros development under GNU/Linux?

Rookie

no power is require the usb cable will power the board

Rookie

Sorry that I missed part of the lecture on Wed due to emergency. My kit is not powering up after connecting to the computer. the PC does not auto detect it either. Do we need another cable to supply power? I doubt but still asking.
