STM32F3 programming and debug using SWO

This post will guide you through steps to print values from any part of the program. This functionality will allow the user to debug the code easily and doesn’t need to add any extra hardware like LCD. Working with serial monitor eases the process of development and quite helpful in experimentation.

I am working on STM32F3 Cortex M-4 board in IAR workbench environment. I hope the user has prior knowledge of how to configure the workspace and write the basic program. This link is helpful in understanding the basic things to get start with basic steps and run your first blink program. Only needed some library name modification which is not difficult for a logical person. 🙂 Continue reading


ARM LPC1342 custom perfo-board prototype development board

I have selected LPC1342 which is having ARM Cortex-M3 as core. Since this IC comes in SMD package only it can’t be soldered directly on perfo-board. Hence I had already designed a IC pad for 48-pin LPC1342. In previous post I’d used this same pad with SN65 line driver IC, so this pad design became an added advantage for me. This is how it looks- Continue reading
