Hi all,

I have to learn programming for embedded software development for ARM processors. So I need to buy an ARM development board to do programming at home. I'm thinking of buying a STM32 board. There is a lot of board available in market so Its very difficult to find best one,

I have found some of the board in online.

I have posted three links Please suggest me which Development Board I should buy?

The difference is in the target MCU.

STMicroelectronics manufacture a large collection of MCU families, each one with different performance and capabilities

The STM32F0308-DISCOVERY uses an STM32F030R8TC as the target MCU.

The STM32F4-DISCOVERY uses an STM32F407VG as the target MCU.

It depends on how far you wish go into ARM development and what are your target applications. If you are just starting out you may opt for a simple MCU to begin with.

If your application calls for touch screen LCD then you may want to look at STM32F746G-DISCOVERY.

RTOS? hmm.
What is RTOS?
What do you know about RTOS?
Why do you want to use RTOS?
Which RTOS would you choose?
Free or commercial?

RTOS? hmm.
I don't know much about real time operating system but I wanted to learn about it because real time operating system is used in so many places such as automotive field. I would be work with free RTOS

My first priority is to learn programming for ARM processors. Once I get the basic idea then I will think about RTOS Programming

I am looking for board that should be suitable for RTOS. I want to spend money for right device. I don't want to purchase two separate devices. That's the reason I asked you the board is suitable or not for RTOS
