32F103 Comparison (part 4)

This is a quick post about the *32F103 comparison. When talking about my comparison on IRC, I was asked if I could run the Blinky test from the Greaseweazle project. It looks like an interesting project I’ll need to check out in the future. Looking at the description of that test, it’s gonna toggle PC13…


32F103 Comparison (part 3)

Hello there. This is a follow up on the comparison for the *32F103 parts. We’ve got the STM32F103C8T6, GD32F103C8T6, CS32F103C8T6 and APM32F103C8T6. As seen in part 2, there are some differences in how they identify themselves to the debugger. Now I’ll have a look at the ROMTABLE. I can query this information from within my…


32F103 Comparison (part 2)

Welcome back to my 32F103 Comparison. Let’s recap. The STM32F103C8T6 is a popular microcontroller by STMicroelectronics. Various Chinese manufacturers are producing parts in the same naming scheme, eg. APM32F103C8T6, BLM32F103C8T6, CS32F103C8T6, GD32F103C8T6 and MM32F103C8T6. What does this mean? There are parts, such as the famous 555 timer, you can get from many manufacturers and you…


32F103 Comparison (part 1)

GigaDevice is still around, and their parts are available at LCSC, a Chinese distributor, as well as some European distributors like TME. In an earlier posts I’ve mentioned the STM32F103 and the GD32F103, and how I…
