    • Discovery kit with STM32F429ZI Microcontroller Unit


    The STM32F429 Discovery kit (32F429IDISCOVERY) allows users to easily develop applications with the STM32F429 high-performance MCUs with ARM®Cortex®-M4 core.

    It includes an ST-LINK/V2 or ST-LINK/V2-B embedded debug tool, a 2.4" QVGA TFT LCD, an external 64-Mbit SDRAM, an ST MEMS gyroscope, a USB OTG micro-AB connector, LEDs and push-buttons.

    The STM32F429ZIT6U device is based on the high-performance ARM® Cortex™-M4 32-bit RISC core operating at a frequency of up to 180 MHz The Cortex-M4 core features a Floating point unit (FPU) single precision which supports all ARM single-precision data-processing instructions and data types. It also implements a full set of DSP instructions and a memory protection unit (MPU) which enhances application security.
