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.
ST-Link/V2 is a software utilities that allows you to connect to the STM32 microcontroller on the Nucleo board. It allows you to read and write the embedded flash contents of the STM32.
