Serial Transmission in Stm32

Description

As the title says, today I am going to show you how to use UART for serial communication in STM32 devices. I am going to use STM32CubeMx to generate necessary code and than edit the code in Keil uvision 5.

UART is widely used for serial communication between two devices. It is easy to use protocol, because the clock sync is not involved. All you have to do is take care of BAUD RATE.  BAUD RATE must be same for both devices, amongst which communication is done. I am going to use 9600 as it is standard.

I have already explained the detailed working of  UART in my LPC2148 tutorial. If you want the full explanation of working of UART, please visit here. This basic working remains same throughout no matter which microcontroller you are using right now so I am going to skip that part and just show you guys how to set up UART in STM32.

Procedure:-
1.)  Open the cubemx and select your board. Select the UART you want to use for communication. I am using UART2.

2.) In the ‘configuration’ tab, make sure USART settings are as follows.

3.) That’s it for cubemx. Now generate the project and open in the respective IDE. I am using keil uvision.

Some Insight into the Code:-

uint8_t data[] = "HELLO WORLD!n";

while (1)
    {
      HAL_UART_Transmit (&huart2, data, 14, 50);
      HAL_Delay (1000);
    }

HAL_UART_Transmit function takes following arguments-
     UART_HandleTypeDef *huart, --> This is uart handle as I am using UART2 so the handle is huart2
     uint8_t *pData,   --> the data to be sent
     uint16_t Size,    --> size of data
     uint32_t Timeout   --> timeout before error in milliseconds

Result

“hello World!” is transmitted from microcontroller to the computer and is being displayed on a serial window.

Thanks a lot…. it’s simply perfect! It seems “tailor-made” for my needs!
