Downloading binaries using STM32 ST-Link Utility
As you may know, ST also produces its own debugger/programmer called ST-Link. It supports JTAG and SWD interfaces. You can purchase an ST-Link USB adapter, but there is a better option if you are into STM32 microcontrollers and probably own one of the ST32 Discovery boards. Since I have STM32VLDiscovery nearby, this is how to program another STM32F103RBT6 board using only four wires. On the discovery board, locate CN3 jumpers and disconnect them as they connect the discovery board to a debugger.
