Programming[edit]

DFU Programming[edit]

  • Steps from Programming|Program STM32 Black Pill (STM32F401 / F411) with Arduino IDE (Windows OS)
    • Add the URL to Additional Board Manager URLs text box:
    • Go to Tools > Board > Boards Manager
    • Search for STM32, select latest version and click Install.
    • Download and install STM32CubeProg from ST.com: [1]
    • Start the STM32CubeProg
    • From the Tools > Board > STM32 Board, select Generic STM32F4 series
    • Select Tools > Board Part Number > BlackPill F411CE
    • Under USB Support, select CDC (generic "Serial" supersede U(S)ART)
    • Under Upload method, select SMT32CubeProgrammer(DFU)
    • Use the onboard BOOT0 and NRST button to put the board into bootloader mode:
      • press and hold the BOOT0 button
      • press and release NRST (reset) button to power cycle the processor
      • release BOOT0 button
      • Sometimes removing the USB cable and plugging it back in while pressing BOOT0 button works better
    • Upload sketch
