The STM32F401xB/STM32F401xC devices are based on the high-performance Arm® Cortex® -M4 32-bit RISC core operating at a frequency of up to 84 MHz. The Cortex®-M4 core features a Floating point unit (FPU) single precision which supports all Arm single-precision data-processing instructions and data types. It also implements a full set of DSP instructions and a memory protection unit (MPU) which enhances application security. The STM32F401xB/STM32F401xC incorporate high-speed embedded memories, and an extensive range of enhanced I/Os and peripherals connected to two APB buses, two AHB buses and a 32-bit multi-AHB bus matrix.

All devices offer one 12-bit ADC, a low-power RTC, six general-purpose 16-bit timers including one PWM timer for motor control, two general-purpose 32-bit timers. They also feature standard and advanced communication interfaces.
The STM32F401xB/STM32F401xC operate in the – 40 to + 125 °C temperature range from a 1.7 (PDR OFF) to 3.6 V power supply. A comprehensive set of power-saving mode allows the design of low-power applications.
These features make the STM32F401xB/STM32F401xC microcontrollers suitable for a wide range of applications. (from ST)

All STM32401 have pins 5v tolerant (green square in the pinout diagram)

This board type offers a socket to the bottom to add an External SPI Flash, and SPI1 CS/SCK/MISO/MOSI (PA4/PA5/PA6/PA7) are Routed to the footprint for external flash.

    WeAct have discontinued sales of the STM32F401CCU6 Black Pill through their official AliExpress store.

    • Hi Howard,
      like for WeMos D1 mini, ESP32 DevKit, Lolin32, etc.. are discontinued from the main productor, but the primary reason for the discontinuing is that hundreds of factories started to produce them and sell them for a lower price.
      Bye Renzo
