Serial Communication Between STM32F103C8 and Arduino

Author

Table of Contents

Overview

Many electronic projects require serial communication to communicate with some sensors or modules, or to connect two microcontrollers together, or even to connect a microcontroller to a computer.

In this tutorial, we are going to review the serial protocol in the STM32 microcontroller series. If you are unfamiliar with these microcontrollers, refer to “Getting Started with STM32F103C8T6“.

What you will learn

  • Get to know with serial protocol
  • Setting up STM32 serial microcontroller unit in keil compiler
  • Connecting Arduino and STM32 via serial unit
  • Setting up the HC05 Bluetooth module with STM32

What Is A Serial Protocol?

Technically, serial communication is the process of sending data bit to bit over a transmission line. There are different types of serial protocol, such as CAN, RS232, RS485, I2C, SPI, etc., all of them are serial communication. One of the serial communication methods is UART, the word UART stands for Universal Asynchronous Receiver / Transmitter.
In this connection, first an initial bit, then the data, and finally a parity bit and an end bit are sent.

This is a two-way connection. The important thing about serial communication protocol is that the baud rate should be the same both devices (transmitter and receiver).
