DMA using

How can I implement DMA for generating 100kHz sine via DAC?

My board is nucleo STM32 L476RG

Hello Igor,

You can't implement a DMA on the nucleo STM32 L476RG because the board does not support DMA. You still, however, able to generate a 100kHz sine via the DAC.

Here is an example code

100Khz sine output

#include "mbed.h"

// DAC 100khz
#define DAC_Frequency 100000

AnalogOut dac(PA_4);

DigitalIn btn(USER_BUTTON);

Timer tim;
Ticker tic;

//sine table for a 12bit day
static volatile uint16_t sinetable[] = {

 int sel = 0;
 
void DAC_Int(void)
{
    
    // Sine wave
    dac = sinetable[sel];
    sel = (sel+1)%(sizeof(sinetable)/sizeof(sinetable[0]));

int main()

    tim.start();

    tic.attach_us(&DAC_Int, 1000000 / DAC_Frequency);

Thanks for your answer!

the board does not support DMA

So sad if mbed library does not support that periphery. I am already made that sine generator using DMA controller embedded in L476RG, but I used C code from CubeMX library. It was inefficiently for a next develop. Therefore I looking for C++ library with similar functions.
