Hi everybody,
I'm starting with this STM32VL board, and I don't understand how the micro debugger works:
I think in this board there are 2 ARMs .. is it?
One is for st-link perform .. (I think it's the STM32F103C8T6), and the other one is the target device of the firmware, the STM32F100RBT6B, is this correct?

Is it possible to download the st-link micro firmware? Is it free of charge?

Looking at the schematics of the board, it seems not possible to setup a usb comunication between the ARM micro of the STM32VL board and the PC, because the usb connection is not a true usb, it's an st-link connection!
So, if I would like to try that board for a usb comunication between PC and micro, i think this is not the right way .. is it better to buy another discovery board?

Thanks a lot
