Can't compile stm32L433RC

Hi everyone,

I tried to compile the blink example using stm32L433RC, but i got this error message:

"Error: Target "GENERIC_PLACEHOLDER" is not recognized"

Is the board mbed enable? On stm page says that it is enabled.

Thank you in advance! Sansil

If you're working on the online compiler, don't forget to update the mbed library by clicking on the Update button placed in the Summary area on the right side.

Hi Santiago,

Are you using the Mbed Online Compiler to compile the Blinky example? If you are, make sure you have selected your board on the top right corner of the page as shown in the image below:


If you are using the Mbed CLI, make sure your terminal command is formatted like this:

mbed compile -t GCC_ARM -m NUCLEO_L433RC_P
