Supported color depths
The reference port for this board supports 32bpp color depth. The board also supports 16bpp and 24bpp, but they are not implemented in the reference port. See QUL_COLOR_DEPTH and Color depth for more information.
Prebuilt demos and examples
The package for
STM32f769I-DISCOVERY board comes with a prebuilt thermo demo binary. As Qt Quick Ultralite supports both bare metal and FreeRTOS on this board, there are different binaries for both under the
demos_images directory. Also
Thermo demo has two variants, one with metric units and another with imperial units.
See the flashing instructions for the ST boards section, for more information on flashing the device. For this board, select
MX25L512G_STM32F769I-DISCO as the external loader.
Reading debug messages
By default, the output of
printf calls are redirected to STLink virtual COM Port, which is exposed on the host machine via USB. The serial configuration is the following:
Baud rate: 115200 Data bits: 8 Stop bits: 1 Parity: None Flow control: None
Due to limited SDRAM bandwidth, accessing SDRAM with the CPU may cause visual artifacts while the framebuffer is being scanned by the display controller.
The CPU on this board cannot blend compressed images directly onto the framebuffer in SDRAM. Such images are decompressed into intermediate buffers of a limited size, before blending them using DMA2D onto the framebuffer in SDRAM. This approach has a significant performance overhead to blend RLE-compressed images compared to the uncompressed images.
Performance can be improved to some degree by increasing the size of qul_scratch_buffer in platform_stm32.cpp, at the cost of more RAM usage.
