STM32F0 Tutorial 3 – Timers Pt1

On any microcontroller, timers are arguably one of the most useful peripherals, probably along with GPIO. What is a microcontroller without the ability to measure time reasonably accurately?! Timers on the STM32 series of chips are quite complex and will be spread across multiple tutorials, each hopefully demonstrating one useful section of timers. The tutorial […]

STM32F0 Tutorial 2 – SysTick

One of the most cool features of the ARM Cortex series of processors is the SysTick. The SysTick is a 24 bit timer with a user configurable prescalar which can be used for simple variable incrementing tasks such as incrementing a second counter or similar. For the example of done, I’ve made the SysTick counter […]

STM32F0 Tutorial 1 – GPIO

So I’ve finally got round to writing my first tutorial! This first tutorial will be on using the STM32F0 with simple GPIO ports. I’ve set it up so that the LED’s will alternate depending on whether the push button is pressed or not. I’m using Coocox for my IDE and there are loads of other […]
