uploading klangstrom sketches to STM32H7 MCU via Arduino IDE.

success! i finally managed to find a way to upload sketches from arduino to the klangstrom board: DfuSe ( USB Device Firmware Upgrade ) is the word.

now i only need to find as way to jump to the bootloader from the application … and i found it:

jump to bootloader from application

void JumpToBootloader(void)
  uint32_t i=0;
  void (*SysMemBootJump)(void);
  /* Set the address of the entry point to bootloader */
     volatile uint32_t BootAddr = 0x1FF09800;
  /* Disable all interrupts */

  /* Disable Systick timer */
     SysTick->CTRL = 0;
  /* Set the clock to the default state */

  /* Clear Interrupt Enable Register & Interrupt Pending Register */
     for (i=0;i<5;i++)
  /* Re-enable all interrupts */
  /* Set up the jump to booloader address + 4 */
     SysMemBootJump = (void (*)(void)) (*((uint32_t *) ((BootAddr + 4))));
  /* Set the main stack pointer to the bootloader stack */
     __set_MSP(*(uint32_t *)BootAddr);
  /* Call the function to jump to bootloader location */
  /* Jump is done successfully */
     while (1)
      /* Code should never reach this loop */

DfuSe for STM32H743ZI

today i have a new plan and 4 hours at my hands: i want to test out the DfuSe integrated into some STM32 devices.

start device in DfuSe mode

  • connect the BOOT0 pin to VDD ( i.e )
  • reset device
  • device now starts in DFU mode e.g device identifies as STMicroelectronics DFU in FS Mode Serial: 200364500000 with lsusb

flash with dfu-util

  • install dfu-util with homebrew i.e brew install dfu-util
  • dfu-util - Device Firmware Upgrade Utilities
  • generate .bin file ( e.g in Arduino IDE or STM32CubeIDE )
  • flash .bin onto device ( a.k.a download ) e.g dfu-util -a 0 -s 0x08000000:leave -D Blink.ino.bin
  • **it turns out it is not necessary ( or does not even work ) to convert to .dfu first **

compile arduino sketch with generic serial support

make the following selections:

  • Board: "Klangstrom (STM32)"
  • U(S)ART support: Enable (generic 'Serial')
  • USB support (if available): "CDC (generic 'Serial' supersede U(S)ART)"
