Welcome to a new InTheMail, the series that will touch both your passion for electronics and your bank account at the same time. We have a selection of different items received in this mailbag, I’m gonna start with this rather big development board based on an STM32F407 microcontroller. This particular microcontroller has 512K of flash memory and 192K of ram which should be enough to cover most needs. What I liked about this development board is that it comes loaded with peripheral interfaces like CAN bus, RS232, RS485, Ethernet, USB, SD Card and a bunch of IO so you can pretty much build any project you can think of. I’m particularly interested in the CAN interfaces so I’m planning to have a play with those.
While the product might be available from different sellers at different prices, there might even be different variations of this board I will place a link in the description to the seller where I got mine because it was the only one that offered a support pack for the board which contains schematics, documentation, example code, it even contains like a bundle of keil compiler with a keygen which ofcourse I’m not going to use, that would be illegal but you get the point, the seller will offer you a download link for this pack which is like 1.7Gb worth of documentation so I highly recommend it. It also ships the boards in these cheap plastic carry cases which are great for protection during transport as well as storage afterwards.
