This article aims to present how to configure and start for the first time an STM32MP15 Evaluation board that has just been flashed.

Warning.png To start efficiently the board, it's recommended to go through the Starter Package article relative to your board: Category:Starter Package


Now that the image is flashed on the STM32MP15 Evaluation board, let's finalize the system configuration:

  • Step 1: check the configuration of the switches and jumpers
    • especially, the boot related switches must be configured so that the device (e.g. microSD card ) on which the image has been flashed, is selected as the boot source
    • note also that the jumpers relative to the UART4 of the STM32MP15 microprocessor device must be set such as this UART4 is used by the ST-LINK / V2-1 controller (7)
The figure below shows the boot switches for the recommended boot from microSD card.
  • Step 2: (optionally) connect a USB keyboard and/or a USB mouse (not provided) using the USB type A ports (10 and 11)
  • Step 3: (optionally) connect an Ethernet cable (not provided) to the dedicated connector (13)

  • Step 4: if the Flash device is the microSD card, check that it's inserted into the dedicated slot (5)
  • Step 5: connect the delivered power supply (5V, 3A) to the power connector (6) of the MB1263 daughterboard. Check that the display board (MB1230) is well connected. If well connected, the 2 LEDs (8) are lighted in green.
  • Step 6: (optionally) install and configure a remote Terminal program (e.g. Minicom on Ubuntu Linux PC or Tera Term on Windows PC) onto your host PC, and connect
    • either the ST-LINK/Link V2-.1 USB micro-B port (7) to an host PC that runs a Terminal program with ST-LINK/V2-STLink V2.1 virtual port (recommended method)
    • or the RS232 UART4 connector (12) to the host PC that runs a Terminal program with COM1 port
      • the ST-LINK/Link V2-.1 USB micro-B port (7) and the RS232 UART4 connector (12) can't be used simultaneously: see how to set the JP4 and JP5 jumpers to select one of the two configurations
  • Step 7: press the reset button (9) to reset the board

The board boots and the system will be available after few seconds.
