The STLINK-V3MINI probe combines the enhanced features of STLINK-V3SET with standalone simplicity for faster programming and ease of use, for an even more affordable price, at just $9.75.

The compact, portable probe can be used anywhere to upload and debug applications on STM32 microcontrollers. It leverages ST’s 14-pin STDC14 debug cable to support enhanced features including Virtual COM Port (VCP). VCP brings extra convenience and flexibility, such as easily observing runtime data on the host PC for faster, clearer debugging. Mass-storage support is another feature of STLINK-V3MINI that makes developers’ lives easier by enabling the uploading of files directly through the probe with a simple drag and drop to quickly trial new ideas or run various demo applications. Moreover, STLINK-V3MINI comes with reference files for 3D printing that let owners create their own customized casing for the probe. STLINK-V3MINI interacts smoothly with the STM32CubeProgrammer and is directly supported in popular commercial IDEs including Keil MDK-ARM, IAR EWARM, and GCC-based IDEs including free STM32CubeIDE from ST. In addition, ST provides free access to the probe’s low-level APIs to help integrate STLINK-V3MINI in custom test platforms.
