Hello Sz T,

The User manual for STM32 Nucleo-32 boards does not seem to provide such information. It's very unfortunate because in the Nucleo Features one can even read that there suppose to be a selection-mode switch to use the kit as a standalone ST-LINK/V2-1.

I haven't tried it yet but this might work:

  • Install the missing/reserved ST-Link SWD connector CN2 (next to the USB connector).
  • Disconnect the onboard STM32 MCU from power supply by turning the jumper JP1 (IDD) off.
  • Connect the target board to the installed CN2 connector according to the pinout in Figure 11 of the User manual.
