Besides the usual assortment of push buttons, LEDs, and a USB debug interface, Nucleo boards feature two unique sets of expansion headers. The first set of expansion headers sit on the outside edges of the board, and are standard headers on all Nucleo boards. These headers allow for easy access to all peripherals of the target microcontroller during test and development. The second set of expansion headers are nestled inside the first set and are Arduino shield compatible.
These headers support the use of Arduino Uno v3 expansion boards, called "Arduino shields", allowing ST’s Nucleo boards expanded access to dozens of Arduino-compatible expansion boards. Arduino shields support a wide variety of applications, including Ethernet, LCD displays, GSM voice and data communications, ZigBee communications, WiFi networking, motor control, music and sound synthesizers, and more.
Nucleo development boards are compatible with several development tool vendors, including Ccompilers from IAR Systems and Keil Tools. Free GNU-based IDEs are also supported. The free mbed IDE is also supported, allowing quick and easy drag-n-drop programming of the target microcontroller.
