Dear STM8 users,
ST has just officialy introduced to the market new low-cost, low-power 8-bit MCU from STM8 family. This device is named STM8L001J3 and its key new features are small pin count (8 pins) and tiny package (SO8N).
After introducing in July first 8-pin STM8 MCU (STM8S001J3), new STM8L001J3 complements portofolio of 8-pin STM8 MCUs.
STM8L001J3 belongs to STM8L Value line of ultra-low-power microcontrollers. It offers the best price-to-performance ratio for cost-sensitive applications. With a similar core performance and peripheral set as the STM8L151/152 line, Value line has been optimized in terms of features and configurations to reach a budget price.
Some of important features of STM8L001J3:
- Core and system
- 2 internal clock sources (HSI 16MHz, LSI 38kHz)
- Suply voltage range: from 1.8V to 3.6V
- 6 I/Os
- Timing peripherals
- 8- and 16-bit general purpose timers
- Auto-wakeup unit
- 8k Flash
- 1.5k RAM
- 2k EEPROM
- Conenctivity and debug
- Single Wire Interface Module (SWIM)
- 2 comparators

Hardware getting started: minimum hardware needed for STM8L001J3 is decoupling circuitry (10uF + 100nF). It needs to be applied between VDD and VSS pins.
