I've found the STM32 "Nucleo" boards to be trivial to use with mbed for
the simple use cases I've explored (ramming data out to an SPI bus, for
example). I use an alternate web browser with the virtual disk volume
set up as the default download directory (folder), so it just takes a
few mouse clicks to build and download and run a new program iteration.
Gene Kahn and I briefly tried mbed out some months back and confirmed
the integration with the Mercurial VCS is simply fantastic: we could
work in the same workspace at the same time and it seamlessly
coordinated edits and kept our views sync'd with reality. Gene created
an account intended for TriEmbed collaborations that we used for these
But if the KL-25 is supported as well as the page above implies, perhaps
Vikram can just bypass local OS headaches long enough to get his LEDs
Vikram: If you'd like to bring your board and USB cable to the meeting
this Monday evening to explore mbed I'd be happy to try to facilitate
that. (But please come even if this is no longer relevant!)
Finally, this page discusses export of mbed workspaces to offline
toolchains. It's on my list to explore the "Exporting to Make (GCC ARM
If this can be made to work I think it would be a mighty sweet
combination of tools.
PS The MAY MEETING NEXT MONTH WILL BE IN ENGINEERING BUILDING 3 rm 2201.
