The STEVAL-PCC009V2 board implements an IBU universal interface (IBUUI), which is an STM32x-based USB-to-serial interface bridge consisting of a configurable 10-pin interface and a 30-pin interface.
The STM32x microcontroller is used as an interface between the PC and another end system. Various communication peripherals are multiplexed with GPIOs, ADC and PWM channels in both the 10-pin and 30-pin interfaces.
With these interfaces, there is a provision to connect a device which can communicate using I2C, SPI and UART. Thus, the IBUUI tool allows users to connect a serial communication-based device to a PC. At the same time, it allows user control of some GPIOs available in 10-pin and 30-pin interfaces, and sets them to input/output mode as per application requirements.
The STM32F103xx medium-density performance line family incorporates the high-performance ARM Cortex™-M3 32-bit RISC core operating at a 72 MHz frequency, high-speed embedded memories and an extensive range of enhanced I/Os and peripherals connected to two APB buses. All devices offer two 12-bit ADCs, three general purpose 16-bit timers plus one PWM timer, as well as standard and advanced communication interfaces: up to two I2Cs and SPIs, three USARTs, an USB and a CAN.
