ST Nucleo F411RE

The STM32 Nucleo board is a low-cost and easy-to-use development platform used to quickly evaluate and start a development with an STM32 microcontroller in LQFP64 package.

STM32F411 Microcontroller

The STM32F411xC/xE family is based on the high-performance ARM Cortex-M4 32-bit RISC core operating at a frequency of up to 100 MHz. Its Cortex-M4 core features a Floating point unit (FPU) single precision which supports all ARM single-precision data-processing instructions and data types. It also implements a full set of DSP instructions and a memory protection unit (MPU) which enhances application security.

ST-Link is the USB device interface that allows the STM32 Nucleo to be programmed by mbed.
It is recommended that you pre-install the ST-Link PC driver and update the ST-Link firmware before using your STM32 Nucleo with mbed.
