Hi, I just purchased the STM32L496 Discovery board and I am having a difficult time finding where I can download the BSP for this kit. Can someone provide a link for me to download?
We do not currently have a public BSP on the website for the STM32L496 board. Here are the ST boards for which we do provide BSPs...
You can buy one of these boards and flash one of their prebuilt BSPs (from the Downloads page). Otherwise, you will need to write your own BSP for the 496 board.
Thank you for your response. Was there ever a BSP for this board? After looking on the forums, it seems this board was supported in the past. We are looking to use AWE with a lower-power part, so the two you listed above will not work for us.
We have very little experience with creating BSPs - is there a tool you would recommend for this? After going through the forums, it seems that System Workbench would be a good tool - is this still true?
Yes there was a BSP for this board that used an older version of AWE Core. We're in the process of updating our BSPs to use the current AWE Core (version 8.B API), but this one has yet to be updated.
As far as creating BSP's goes, our BSPs ship with projects for three different tool-chains:
Of these, the System Workbench is the only free tool-chain.
Hope this helps!
