To program stm32f407vgt I use STMCube an system workbench for stm32 (eclipse based). How can I compile this library?

Al's picture

Hello, It's probably worth looking at a few tutorials of how to set up Eclipse with your tool chain and target.

You'll need the following include paths:

I seem to remember using version 1.3.0 firmware package.

Also add the linker scripts found in the ldscripts directory.
