- On-board 3.3v 250mA voltage regulator, accepts voltages from 3.5v to 16v
Older versions of Windows won’t automatically load the built-in driver for USB COM ports.
You’ll have to download ST’s USB driver
- Windows 10 users should need no drivers. The board will plug in and be recognised immediately.
- Non-Windows XP users download version 1.4.0 drivers. Unzip the file, run the executable, and then go to
C:\Program Files (x86)\STMicroelectronics\Software\Virtual comport driverin Windows Explorer and double-click either
dpinst_amd64.exefor 64 bit systems, or
dpinst_x86.exefor 32 bit.
- Windows XP users download version 1.3.1 drivers. Unzip the file, run
VCP_V1.3.1_Setup.exe, and then go to
C:\Program Files\STMicroelectronics\Software\Virtual comport driverin Windows Explorer and double-click the executable.
Just plug it into your computer and get started in seconds with the Web IDE
