User manual
Getting started with STM32F469I discovery
software development tools
Introduction
This document describes some software environment recommendations, required to build
an application using the STM32F469I Discovery kit (32F469IDISCOVERY).
The document provides users with guidelines about how to build and run a simple example
and how to create and build an application. It has the following structure:
• The first chapter presents the software and hardware requirements (some toolchains
supporting the STM32 families, ST-LINK/V2-1 installation and firmware package
presentation).
• The second chapter provides step by step guidelines on how to execute and debug an
application example using the following toolchains:
– IAR Embedded Workbench® for ARM® (EWARM) by IAR Systems®
– Microcontroller development kit for ARM® (MDK-ARM) by Keil®
– System Workbench for STM32 (SW4STM32) by AC6
Although this user manual does not cover all the topics relevant to software development
environment, it demonstrates the first basic steps necessary to get started with the
compilers/debuggers and it includes references for complementary information.

Before running an application, the user should:
1.
Install his preferred Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
2.
Install the ST-LINK V2-1 driver from the www.st.com web page.
3.
4.
Establish the USB connection with the STM32F469 Discovery board by connecting the
CN1 connector of the STM32F469 Discovery board to the USB port of the PC, using a
type A to Mini-B USB cable (the Figure 1 shows the connector CN1 inside the red
circle).

IDEs supporting STM32 families
STM32 families of 32-bit ARM® Cortex® -M core-based microcontrollers are supported by a
complete range of software tools. It encompasses traditional integrated development
environments IDEs with C/C++ compilers and debuggers from major 3rd-parties (free
versions up to 64 Kbytes of code, depending on 3rd-parties), completed with innovative
tools from STMicroelectronics.
The following table regroups general information about the three integrated development
environments, as well as the version supporting the STM32F469I product.

The STM32F469I Discovery board includes an embedded ST-LINK/V2 debug tool interface.
The interface needs an ST-LINK/V2 dedicated USB driver to be installed. This driver is
available from the www.st.com web page and it is supported by the software toolchains:
•
IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM (EWARM).
The toolchain is installed by default in the C:\Program Files\IAR Systems\Embedded
Workbench x.x directory on the hard disk of the local PC.
After having installed EWARM, install the ST-LINK/V2 driver by running the
•
Keil Microcontroller Development Kit (MDK-ARM) toolchain.
The toolchain is installed by default in the C:\Keil directory on the hard disk of the local
PC; the installer creates a ARM® Keil® µVision®4 shortcut in the start menu.
When connecting the ST-LINK/V2 tool, the PC detects new hardware and prompts user
to install the ST-Link_V2_USB driver. The “Found New Hardware” wizard displays and
guides the user through the steps, required to install the driver from the recommended
location.
•
AC6 System Workbench for STM32 (SW4STM32).
The toolchain is installed by default in the C:\Program Files\AC6 directory on the hard
disk of the local PC.
The ST-Link_V2_USB.exe is automatically executed, when installing the software
toolchain.
For complementary information on the firmware package content and the STM32F469I
Discovery requirements, refer to: STM32CubeF4 demonstration platform (UM1743 user
manual).
Note:
The embedded ST-LINK/V2-1 supports only the SWD interface for STM32 devices.
