LEDs and buttons on STM32 MPU boards
STM32 MPU Evaluation boards and Discovery kits share the same usage for LEDs and buttons. The following paragraphs describe the functional mapping of the LEDs and buttons, so that you can refer to the respective board-hardware descriptions to determine to which GPIO each function is mapped:
- STM32MP157x-EV1 - hardware description for the Evaluation boards
- STM32MP157x-DKx - hardware description for the Discovery kits.
|LED color||Button label||Purpose|
|-||WAKE UP||This button allows the platform to be woken from any low-power mode|
|This can be used at boot time as a button, by U-Boot, to enter USB programming mode with STM32CubeProgrammer. This avoids manipulation of the boot pins when a valid U-Boot image is already present in the board.|
It can be used at runtime as:
|This can be used at boot time as a button, by U-Boot, to enter Android Fastboot mode.|
It is also used as a LED to show Cortex-A boot information, then it can be used, at runtime, as a button for Linux examples. It is not used by STM32Cube.
|Blue||-||U-Boot entering / exit indication then Linux heartbeat LED, which blinks as long as the Linux is alive on the Cortex-A|
|Orange||-||STM32Cube examples verdict LED.|
|(*) Both a LED and a button are connected to the same GPIO, with inverted logic for the LED control (so the LED is switched on when the GPIO output is set low).|
