Discover the extended capabilities of high-performance Access line STM32F4 MCUs

The STM32F412 Discovery kit (32F412GDISCOVERY) comes with an Access line STM32F412 microcontroller from ST’s high-performance STM32F4 series in a 144-pin LQFP package. The board comes loaded with a color touchscreen, joystick, stereo MEMS microphones, external memory capabilities, full-speed OTG USB interface, and more! Developers will appreciate its embedded ST-LINK/V2 in-circuit debugger/programmer as well as the Arduino™ Uno and expansion connectors for specialized add-on boards.


Prototype augmented IoT solutions with STM32 MCUs and LoRa™

The P-NUCLEO-LRWAN1 STM32 Nucleo Pack is the easiest and most affordable way to prototype solutions based on LoRa™ and/or FSK/OOK technologies. The kit combines an ultra-low-power STM32L0 MCU (ARM® Cortex®-M0+) Nucleo-64 development board and a Semtech Arduino™ SX1272MB2DAS board. The Arduino connectivity and ST morpho headers make it easy to expand the functionality of the Nucleo ODE with a wide choice of shields. A certified LoRaWAN stack (I-CUBE-LRWAN ) is also available.
