Hi,
I'm a newby in  firmware programming, therefore sorry for my simple question. I need to send some data to the PC via serial communication from a board equipped with an STM32F4. I chose to set up the communication through the USART2 interface on PINS 5 and 6. What I'm experiencing is as follows:
- after programming the board with the ST-LINK V2 going to debug mode the communication on the RS232 is ok: I can see just what I'm expecting.
- if while debugging I disconnect the ST-LINK V2, the program stop sending characters to the PC
- if I power on the board with no ST-LINK V2 connected, I receive strange characters on the PC, as if the RS232 communication format were not set correctly.

Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance, regards
