Nucleo 64pins boards LED

On the Nucleo 64pins boards, the default user LED1 (mentioned LD2 on the PCB) is also connected on default SPI_SCLK.

This can cause issues in some cases to communicate with SPI shields.

A workaround is to disconnect LD2 by removing the solder bridge SB21 placed in the bottom of the PCB.

Now, if you want to use another pin to drive the LD2: solder a wire between SB21 right-side to any you want pin (for example PA_8 / D7 on Arduino connector).


You can now control the LD2 like this:

DigitalOut myled(D7); // or use PA_8
