Armmite H7 Pin Aliases

FIXME The ARMMite H7 is a new MicroMite running MMBasic on the powerful STM32H743ZI and STM32H753ZI MicroController. You can grab the complete firmware and join the discussion here: backshed forums. The previous discussion is 18 pages(!) but worth reading to get the full story, but bear in mind it has been superseded by the former and is no longer updated:old thread

It seems a popular way of utilizing this processor for small production/hobbyist is ST's Nucleo evaluation board. There are several suppliers but Farnell/Element14 seem to be well priced with good availability. Using the board is simplicity itself and the familiar environment of MMBasic is a joy, clocked at 400MHz it is very quick and with a half a megabyte each of Flash and RAM it is unlikely to place many constraints on your project.

The development board mentioned above comes with two sets of header pins, the outer set (CN11 & CN12) break-out all the microcontroller pins and the inner set (CN7, CN8, CN9 & CN10) is specifically arranged to take Arduino shield boards (love 'em or hate 'em, they are ubiquitous and can provide a quick route to a working project). These Arduino pins are referred to by both the standard Arduino Notation (D3, A0 etc…) and the Connector_pin e.g. CN10_12, CN9_1 - Note, not all pins have an Arduino counterpart, e.g. PF5 does, PF6 does not. The code below is boiled out of TassyJim's excellent spreadsheet here and you should reference that to find any special functions associated with a given pin.

MMBasic uses the physical pin number of the processor to interact with the outside world but these are not referenced on the above board. The below include file maps the processor pin names (e.g.PA0) and the outer connector name (e.g. CN11_28) so you can use ST terminology or the connector pin as names in your code. The mapping ensures MMBasic talks to the correct pin.



is equivalent to


but much easier to understand. Simply cut and paste the below code somewhere near the top of your program.

There is a backpack for various displays and other devices–see this thread: H7 Backpack

There are at least three ways to flash mmbasic onto the Nucleo board. The easiest seems to be to copy the H7 mmbasic.bin file to the drive which is configured on your PC when the board is plugged in via USB/serial cable (copy and paste). Then if you connect to the serial port with TeraTerm or puTTY or MMEdit, you should get the “>” prompt.
