Nucleo U575ZI Q System Clock could be driven by internal or external oscillator, as well as main PLL clock. By default System clock is driven by PLL clock at 160MHz, driven by 4MHz medium speed internal oscillator.
Nucleo U575ZI Q board has 6 U(S)ARTs. The Zephyr console output is assigned to USART1. Default settings are 115200 8N1.
Board is configured to be flashed using west STM32CubeProgrammer runner. Installation of STM32CubeProgrammer is then required to flash the board.
Flashing an application to Nucleo U575ZI Q
Connect the Nucleo U575ZI Q to your host computer using the USB port. Then build and flash an application. Here is an example for the Hello World application.
Run a serial host program to connect with your Nucleo board:
$ minicom -D /dev/ttyACM0
Then build and flash the application.
# From the root of the zephyr repository west build -b nucleo_u575zi_q samples/hello_world west flash
You should see the following message on the console:
Hello World! arm
STM32U5 support is not currently supported in openocd. As a temporary workaround, user can use STMicroelectronics customized version of OpenOCD to debug the the Nucleo U575ZI Q. For this you need to fetch this repo, checkout branch “openocd-cubeide-r3” and build openocd following the instructions provided in the README of the project. Then, build zephyr project indicating the openocd location in west build command.
Here is an example for the Blinky application.
# From the root of the zephyr repository west build -b nucleo_u575zi_q samples/basic/blinky -- -DOPENOCD="<path_to_openocd>/openocd/src/openocd" -DOPENOCD_DEFAULT_PATH="<path_to_openocd>/openocd/tcl/"
Then, indicate openocd as the chosen runner in flash and debug commands:
$ west flash -r openocd $ west debug -r openocd
