The 32L476GDISCOVERY helps users to develop and share applications with the STM32L4 ultra-low-power microcontrollers.The Discovery kit combines STM32L476 features with LCD, LEDs, audio DAC, sensors (microphone, 3 axis gyroscope, 6 axis compass), joystick, USB OTG, Quad-SPI Flash memory, expansion and probing connectivity. It includes an embedded Ammeter which measures the MCU consumption in low power modes. An external board can be connected thanks to extension and probing connectors.

Getting started

Nucleo ST-LINK/V2-1 driver installation and firmware upgrade

  • Install the ST-LINK/V2-1 driver before connecting the Nucleo board to your PC the first time. Follow this LINK for all details.
  • For optimum performances, ensure that the Nucleo ST-LINK/V2-1 firmware is upgraded to the latest version. Follow this LINK for all details.

Virtual Com Port configuration

By default the Virtual Com Port is not enabled. To enable it, you need to close SB13 and SB16 solder bridge and ensure that SB15 and SB17 are open.
