Welcome to the HES-SO STM32F746G-DISCO wiki

This first release of documentation is just to start with someting.


STM32F746G-DISCO(hardware details) is the name of a small embedded computer board targeted at teaching embedded and real time operating system programming. This board has been bought (less than 60.- CHF) and an extension board has been developed to offer more functionalities to the user.


We, the ARM team, provide a comprehensive solution for

  • Practical work for HEI courses Embedded systems and Real time programming
  • All kind of project featuring a mid-sized micro-controller.

What can be done with the STM32F746G-DISCO ?

The board is powerful enough to run applications with:

  • LCD and touch screen interface
  • Audio filtering
  • MP3 decoding
  • USB master/slave/OTG
  • TCP/IP networking
  • FIXME complete this list
