Free STM32F3 dev boards

Recommended Posts

so... where's the free stuff? I can only order them at $10.90. Besides, I don't know, is it allowed to promote non-TI cpu's at this forum?

Well, this subforum is "Other Microcontrollers" for a reason.

They're only free in the US and Canada. Pretty cheap elsewhere though. A better place for ARM stuff (although mostly TI ARM obviously) is Stellarisiti.

 

Yeah, the button for the free kit didn't come up until I let the geolocation javascript run.

 

I ordered one because, hey, free micro! Since they're ARM, porting code to/from Stellaris shouldn't be too tough.

I ordered some - hope they'll approve them. I've been using these STM32 Discovery dev boards for awhile and once you get a good tool-chain working, they're excellent development boards with a good set of peripherals, much more than the Stellaris has (DMA!), but they're quite a steep learning code from the simple stuff.

I ordered one on 29th or 30th, but still listed as waiting for confirmation.  

Are there others in same boat (i.e. just patience), or any tips (something I could fix in my request?)

 

Thanks

 

By the way - the free button disappeared several days ago, so assume these are no longer available

for free.

I didn't get my confirmation until Dec 3rd.  I believe they check all of these by hand, so it takes a while...especially if you didn't use a corporate or university email address. I also got my order in minutes after this went up on hackaday, so I'm sure I was towards the front of the rush.

Same boat here.  More than a week, nothing.  They probably canned the samples with the surge of orders.  I'm not expecting anything now.
