STM32F7 Discovery Board Introduction

The powerful new member of the ST family

No other demonstration and development platform offers outstanding performance and versatility like the STM32F7. The STM32F7 discovery kit enables users to evaluate and prototype applications using the STM32F7 Series of microcontrollers. This discovery kit can be used for a variety of application that utilized audio, video, graphics, multi-sensor, high-speed connectivity, and security. It is compatible with Arduino and hence provides unlimited expansion capabilities with a wide choice of specialized add-on boards.
