Recovering from a faulty sketch for Tlera Corp Boards

Sometimes a faulty sketch can render the normal USB Serial based integration into the Arduindo IDE not working. In this case plugin the STM32L0 board and toggle the RESET button while holding down the BOOT button and program a known to be working sketch to go back to a working USB Serial setup.


This core is based on and compatible with the Arduino SAMD Core
