STM32MP15 Discovery kits - getting started

The STM32MP157x-DKx Discovery kits (STM32MP157A-DK1 and STM32MP157C-DK2) constitute a flexible and complete solution for evaluating the capabilities of the STM32MP15 microprocessor devices.

All the useful information in order to start with these boards is accessible through links provided here below.

1 Supported software distribution[edit]

Only one software distribution is supported in these boards:

For this distribution, three software Packages are delivered : the Starter Package, the Developer Package, the Distribution Package.
Note that the Which Package better suits your needs article provides hints for selecting the most appropriate Package.

The STM32MP157x-DKx Discovery kits include the software packages (image, source code) and the tools needed to get started.

Starter Package Developer Package Distribution Package
  • to evaluate the board capabilities
  • to run examples
  • to modify the pieces of software delivered as source code in this Package (for example the Linux kernel...)
  • to add custom applications in the user space (delivered as binary in this Package)

Note: these developments require a host PC running the OpenSTLinux SDK, and optionally an IDE

  • to create custom distribution

2 Hardware description[edit]

A brief article (see link below) describes the board, and provides indications on how to:

  • assemble the board
  • configure hardware switches
  • connect the board to external material

It also contains a short introduction of the board hardware components and connectors.
