Default Zephyr Peripheral Mapping:

The Nucleo F302R8 board features an Arduino Uno V3 connector and a ST morpho connector. Board is configured as follows:

  • UART_2 TX/RX : PA2/PA3 (ST-Link Virtual Port Com)
  • UART_3 TX/RX : PC10/PC11
  • I2C1 SCL/SDA : PB8/PB9 (Arduino I2C)

System Clock

The Nucleo F302R8 System Clock can be driven by an internal or external oscillator, as well as by the main PLL clock. By default the System Clock is driven by the PLL clock at 72 MHz. The input to the PLL is an 8 MHz external clock supplied by the processor of the on-board ST-LINK/V2-1 debugger/programmer.

Serial Port

The Nucleo F302R8 board has 3 UARTs. The Zephyr console output is assigned to UART2. Default settings are 115200 8N1.

Programming and Debugging

The Nucleo F302R8 board includes an ST-LINK/V2-1 embedded debug tool interface. This interface is supported by the openocd version included in Zephyr SDK.
