Library 05- SPI for STM32F4

Let’s say something about SPI. SPI (or Serial Peripheral Interface) is a protocol named by Motorola. With him you can control sensors, SD card and much more. SPI protocol works in a ways where there is one master and multiple slaves, In other words, master is our STM32F429 Discovery board and let’s say, SD card is slave.

Library 03- STM32F4 system clock and delay functions

In first tutorial about discovery board we were blinking led. But I said nothing about system clock speed. In while loop we just use

for some delay, to actually see how led was blinking. We didn’t know at which clock speed our processors work and for first time, I think you didn’t even ask yourself.

Library 02- STM32F429 Discovery GPIO tutorial with onboard leds and button

Your first blinky project works, but you don’t know how? I will explain GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) CMSIS Library. This library is used to work with physical pins on microcontroller. You can set pins to input or output, put them low (0 volts) or HIGH (3,3 volts), select pull resistors, choose output type and select clock speed.

Ok, you got your STM32F429 DIscovery board and you don’t know how to use it. In this tutorial I will explain how to use this board with CooCox IDE. I prefer install from their CoCenter. You will need to download ARM GCC from here. There is also youtube tutorial, make sure you did all correct.
