STM32MP15 Discovery kits - getting started

Applicable for STM32MP15x lines

The STM32MP157x-DKx Discovery kits (STM32MP157A-DK1 Warning.png, STM32MP157D-DK1 More info green.png, STM32MP157C-DK2 Warning.png and STM32MP157F-DK2 More info green.png) 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:

  • The STM32MPU Embedded Software distribution[1].

You might also take a look at the latest STM32 MPU ecosystem release note.

For this distribution, three software Packages are delivered:

  • the Starter Package
  • the Developer Package
  • the Distribution Package

These Packages provide you with the software packages (image, source code) and the tools that are needed to start using the STM32MP157x-DKx More info green.png Discovery Kits boards.

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.
