NEW PRODUCT – STM32F411 “BlackPill” Development Board


This simple development board for the STM32F411 is a great way to add a powerful STM chip to your next project. Featuring the STM32F411CEU6, this chip has 512 KB of flash, 128 KB of SRAM, and runs at 100 MHz. There’s a spot on the bottom for SOIC flash memory – you could solder on a 2 MB SPI flash memory chip to give yourself more space for datalogging or file storage.

This dev board is for the more advanced users, we don’t have detailed tutorial usage for it – check online communities for STM32 boards to get project ideas and code samples! You can use STM32duino for Arduino support, and both MicroPython and CircuitPython have support for this chip.

The board features a USB C connector, with a 3.3V 100mA LDO regulator. There are both 25mhz and 32.768 KHz crystals on board. There’s a few handy buttons: a BOOT button for entering the ROM DFU bootloader, a reset button, and a generic button on PA0 for users. One power LED and one user-controllable LED on PC13.

The chip itself has multiple UART, I2C, SPI, I2S, and timer peripherals (check the datasheet for the pin multiplexing as you can only use some pins for each peripheral). The USB is full speed. There’s a single ADC multiplexed to 10 inputs.

Simple, but has everything you need to get started. We recommend pairing with an ST-Link compatible dongle if you want to use a debugger. Thanks to the STM bootloader in ROM, you don’t need a programmer to load binary firmware on! Comes with loose header you can solder in to plug into a breadboard.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
