Hi all,
I have been asked to take over a project on a custom built board that features the STM32F103RCT6 processor. I have installed Keil Uvision IDE but am struggling to communicate with the board so I wondered if you could give me some advice.
So far I have installed the 'virtual com port driver' and the 'st-link_v2_usbdriver' and I have the PCB and a usb/RS232 (serial) cable. The usb-to-serial cable is showing up in device manager but the board itself is not. I'm currently using Windows 7 x64.
Do I need to get a JTAG interface to start flashing the board and using it via the IDE? I've sucessfully flashed the board using this usb/rs232 cable given a hex dump but that's it.
Apologies if this is all very simple, I'm reasonably new to embedded programming and trying to get to grips with it all.
Thanks for your time
