While I might be a little late in getting it, I finally have it. The STM32F0-Discovery Kit. This little board is awesome! Besides having a ton of usable I/O pins, it has pads for your own crystal (PTH or SMT) and has a nice speed on it with no crystal. You can get 48Mhz with a internal 8MHz OSC. and a 6x PLL!

It sports the STM32F051R8, Here is what I think makes it stand out.

ARM 32-bit Cortex®-M0 CPU (48 MHz max)
64 Kbytes of Flash memory
8 Kbytes of SRAM with HW parity checking

Up to 55 fast I/Os (Up to 36 I/Os with 5 V tolerant capability)
Up to 11 timers

It also has 96-bit unique ID… perfect for security in reprogramming prevention.

5-channel DMA controller
1 × 12-bit, 1.0 μs ADC (up to 16 channels)
One 12-bit D/A converter (yes! a DAC ) I can see composite video in the future Open-mouthed smile

As well as most other things you expect from a ARM type MCU. And its all packed on a nice PCB with a free Prototype PCB included! That should help a ton of people start off.

ST includes a on board programmer as usual. With the ability to use it as a standalone programmer. Which is awesome! Compared to the STM32F4-Discovery it’s a slight bit smaller but almost the same size.
