Last year, we reported STMicroelectronics launched STLink-V3 debugger & programmer for STM8 & STM32 microcontrollers that added I2C, SPI, and CAN interfaces compared the previous STLink-V2 model.
It’s not particularly expensive either at $35, but if you ever wanted something more compact and cheaper, the company has now introduced STLink-V3mini debugger going for under $10.
STLINK-V3Mini key features and specifications:
- JTAG / serial wire debugging (SWD) specific features:
- 3 V to 3.6 V application voltage support and 5 V tolerant inputs
- JTAG communication support
- SWD and serial wire viewer (SWV) communication support
- Virtual COM port (VCP) specific features:
- 3 V to 3.6 V application voltage support on the UART interface and 5 V tolerant inputs
- VCP frequency up to 15 MHz
- USB – Micro USB 2.0 connector for power and connection to host computer
- Misc – 2x color LEDs: communication, power; STDC14 signals protection
- Dimensions – 30 x 15 mm PCB
The debugger & in-circuit programmer supports drag-and-drop Flash programming, and direct firmware update support (DFU). It is delivered with 1.27 mm pitch STDC14 debug connector and STDC14 to STDC14 flat cable.
The STLINK-V3MINI debugger works with the company’s STM32CubeProgrammer software, as well as third-parties IDE such as Keil MDK-ARM, IAR EWARM, and GCC-based IDEs, including STMicro’s own free STM32CubeIDE.
You’ll find documentation and purchase link ($9.75) on the product page.
