How to properly set clock speed for STM32F4xx devices 71

How to properly set clock speed for STM32F4xx devices

I see that you have problems with your devices when you don’t know even (and you don’t even ask) on which speed your device is actually running. Speed of your device depends on PLL settings or clock source you have selected for system core clock. In most cases system core clock’s source is PLL output. To get proper value, you check ALWAYS first these settings when something is not working. Because I’m tired of questions that something is not working but...

STemWin on STM32F429-Discovery board 77

Library 50- STemWin for STM32F429-Discovery

ST provides emWin library from Segger. It is professional GUI (Graphical User Interface), optimized for speed and performance for microcontrollers. ST has it’s own implementation, called STemWin. With this GUI, you can do many thing, of use simple buttons, dialogs, text boxes, to playing videos, displaying pictures, menus, etc. I suggest you that you go to segger’s website and read more about this very useful tool. In my library, I’ve some changes from original ST’s example for STM32F429-Discovery board, because...

Library 45- Interface backup SRAM on STM32F4 7

Library 45- Interface backup SRAM on STM32F4

Almost all (with few exceptions) STM32F4xx MCUs have internal backup SRAM, which stores data, if power is available at least on Vbat rails. These MCUs have internal 4-kBytes of SRAM. Backup SRAM can be also used as EEPROM, if your Vbat supply is always active, so you can store data which will stay there also if you reset your device. You just have to make sure that you don’t shut down your power supply or re-write them during startup sequence of MCU. Difference...

Overclock STM32F4 device up to 250MHz 21

Overclock STM32F4 device up to 250MHz

Let’s test what STM32F4xx devices can do. I have all “4 speed families” at home so why not to try it how fast we can go. By default, for those who don’t know max frequencies for STM32F4xx devices, they are in list below: 84MHz: STM32F401 MCUs, including Nucleo-F401 board 100MHz: STM32F411 MCUs, including Nucleo F411 board 168MHz: STM32F405/7 and STM32F415/17 MCUs, including STM32F4-Discovery board 180MHz: STM32F427/29 and STM32F437/39 MCUs, including STM32F429-Discovery board Ok, we have everything provided, let’s test how far...

Snake game on STM32F429-Discovery board 9

Project 02- Snake game for STM32F429-Discovery board

After first FFT project, I’ve decided to make a simple snake game. Basically I’ve made it in Labview first for my partial exam at the university. It looked great so why not port it also to STM32F429-Discovery board which has everything already prepared for us. You just need USB OTG cable and external keyboard to drive snake and you are ready to play. Snake game Features Works on STM32F429-Discovery board Supports external keyboard using USB HID Host stack on STM32 Supports...

Library 40- Output clocks from STM32F4 14

Library 40- Output clocks from STM32F4

STM32F4 has capability to output different clocks on specific 2 pins. You are able to output clocks in original frequency (no prescaler) and also with prescaler values 2, 3, 4 and 5. 2 pins are used to output different frequencies. They are not able to output the same clocks. You can output: MCO1 HSI: High Speed Internal oscillator, 16MHz RC HSE: High Speed External oscillator, or External User clock LSE: Low speed, 32768Hz oscillator or ceramic resonator PLLCLK: Output clock...
