Photogallery: STM32L496 Discovery board
STMicroelectronics released a new microcontroller STM32L496 which belongs to STM32L4 family.


Discovery board also contains STMod+ and PMOD connectors.
The new component is STMod+ connector.
It is expanded connector for connecting of board to breadboard. You can connect very popular WiFi module ESP8266 to STM32L496.

On the other side you find PMOD konektor (peripheral module).
It's connector for connecting a lot of modules like LCD, network adapters or analog and digital converters.
The Eshop with these modules you find for example here
