STM32F417VE (128k RAM. 512k Flash)


Platform ST STM32: The STM32 family of 32-bit Flash MCUs based on the ARM Cortex-M processor is designed to offer new degrees of freedom to MCU users. It offers a 32-bit product range that combines very high performance, real-time capabilities, digital signal processing, and low-power, low-voltage operation, while maintaining full integration and ease of development.

Microcontroller STM32F417VE
Frequency 168MHz
Flash 512KB
Vendor Generic


Please use genericSTM32F417VE ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

platform = ststm32
board = genericSTM32F417VE

You can override default STM32F417VE (128k RAM. 512k Flash) settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest genericSTM32F417VE.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

platform = ststm32
board = genericSTM32F417VE

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = stm32f417ve

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 168000000L


STM32F417VE (128k RAM. 512k Flash) supports the next uploading protocols:

  • blackmagic
  • dfu
  • jlink
  • serial
  • stlink

Default protocol is serial

You can change upload protocol using upload_protocol option:

platform = ststm32
board = genericSTM32F417VE

upload_protocol = serial


Debugging - “1-click” solution for debugging with a zero configuration.


You will need to install debug tool drivers depending on your system. Please click on compatible debug tool below for the further instructions and configuration information.

You can switch between debugging Tools & Debug Probes using debug_tool option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File).

STM32F417VE (128k RAM. 512k Flash) does not have on-board debug probe and IS NOT READY for debugging. You will need to use/buy one of external probe listed below.

Name Description
Arduino Arduino Wiring-based Framework allows writing cross-platform software to control devices attached to a wide range of Arduino boards to create all kinds of creative coding, interactive objects, spaces or physical experiences
CMSIS The ARM Cortex Microcontroller Software Interface Standard (CMSIS) is a vendor-independent hardware abstraction layer for the Cortex-M processor series and specifies debugger interfaces. The CMSIS enables consistent and simple software interfaces to the processor for interface peripherals, real-time operating systems, and middleware. It simplifies software re-use, reducing the learning curve for new microcontroller developers and cutting the time-to-market for devices
STM32Cube STM32Cube embedded software libraries, including: The HAL hardware abstraction layer, enabling portability between different STM32 devices via standardized API calls; The Low-Layer (LL) APIs, a light-weight, optimized, expert oriented set of APIs designed for both performance and runtime efficiency
libopencm3 The libOpenCM3 framework aims to create a free and open-source firmware library for various ARM Cortex-M0(+)/M3/M4 microcontrollers, including ST STM32, Ti Tiva and Stellaris, NXP LPC, Atmel SAM3, Energy Micro EFM32 and others
