The development board STM32F3 discovery of the STM32 family-
with MEMS gyroscope and e-compass
The STM32 F3 series combines a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M4 core with DSP and FPU instructions.
The STM32F3-Discovery provides good support to understand these mix signals and the
development of own programs. It enables both beginners and experienced users a quick introduction
to the ARM technology.
The STM32F3-Discovery uses the ARM Cortex M4 controller STM32F303VCT6 and includes the embedded
ST-Link/V2 for programming and debugging. With the integrated gyroscope can the dislocation of the
board be illustrated by different colored LEDs. The e-compass is able to show the direction of north
The board has 2 mini USB ports.

ST-Link/V2 for programming and debugging is integrated on the board.
with a jumper, the board can also serve as ST-Link/V2 for programming and
debugging of external microcontroller (via SWD connection)
board power supply through USB
3 V and 5 V power supply for external applications available
all microcontroller pins are routed via pin headers to the outside
Examples of application
Using the gyroscope as a movement sensor
brings you into line at movement
input device for gaming applications
position control of models
and much more
A large amount of freely available, complete examples, including the original
manufacturer's datasheet are available on

Recommendation of software
Please Attention that SiSy Microcontroller++ is only in German.
The substantial range of function of this board is optimally supported by SiSy Microcontroller++
for the development of own program. SiSy Microcontroller++ is a software
package for designing, writing, dating, burning and checking the self
developed program. There are features of an easy development for programming
available and its possible to work with UML. The own work will be optimized
with a sample program and integrated facilities.
