No, I won't have a stand. I will have a talk on Sunday, let's meet

No, not myself.
Well, last week, I was asked if selling ST-Link/V2 clone makes sense.
His intention was flashing the hardware of ST-Link/V2 clone to Gnuk
Token. I answered "Yes, but I'd recommend buying two; one as a
programmer, one for Gnuk Token". So, he will bring some, perhaps.
ST-Link/V2 clone is something like this:
I don't know if this product has nRST pin support. If there is support
of nRST pin, it's better. Since FST-01G doesn't offer access to reset
pin, it doesn't matter for FST-01G. For example, FSM-55 (another board
of mine) requires nRST pin support to be flashed.

While ST-Link/V2 and its clone are useful, the problem here is it's
proprietary. Here are some links for ST-Link/V2 information:
These days, the best programmer would be CMSIS-DAP, since the protocol
is documented and published, as well as the implementation.
It's not only the flash programmer itself, but the whole environment; If
you are using computer with something like GNU/Linux which you control
(sans Intel ME), good, you can focus on the problem of good flash
For the manufacturing of FST-01G, I asked Seeed to use BBG-SWD:
(Because I cared about attack vectors in the manufacturing process,
and BBG is their own product.)
Unfortunately, I developed BBG-SWD based on the snapshot of OpenOCD.
Perhaps, I will port it to newer OpenOCD and let run it on PocketBeagle,
when I will have next opportunity of manufacturing.

See you at FOSDEM!
