STM8 MCUs

Dear STM8 fans,

 

Let me inform you, that STMicroelectronics extended hardware tools ecosystem available for STM8 MCUs by introducing two STM8 Nucleo-64 kits: NUCLEO-8L152R8 and NUCLEO-8S208RB

 

Each of these Nucleo kits contains STM8 device in LQFP64 package (either STM8L152R8T6 with 64kB Flash or STM8S208RBT6 with 128kB Flash). All MCU's pins are available on the ST morpho connectors. Additionally Arduino UNO connectors allow easy stacking of Arduino shields.

 

MCU is connected with some external circuitry: two buttons (user and reset), LEDs (two user LEDs), 32.768kH LSE crystal (only in NUCLEO-8L152R8) and ST-Link programmer/debugger.

 

Embedded ST-Link allows programming and debuggin of STM8 MCU on Nucleo kit as well as STM8 MCU in user's application. Additionally ST-Link works as a Virtual COM Port and acts as a UART bridge between MCU and PC. 

 

We hope you will enjoy using these two new tools.

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
    • Watchdog
  • Memories
    • 8k Flash
    • 1.5k RAM
    • 2k EEPROM
  • Conenctivity and debug
    • UART
    • SPI
    • I2C
    • Single Wire Interface Module (SWIM)
  • Analog
    • 2 comparators

You can start your design based on STM8L001J3 with free of charge development tools: Cosmic compiler, STM8CubeMX, Standard Peripheral Library and STVD IDE.

 

More information you can find on STM8L001J3 webpage.

 

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

Dear STM8 Community,

 

This is a very exciting moment for all of us. STM8 MCUs family was extended with a new device, which is named STM8S001J3. This new family member reshapes STM8 portoflio and takes it to the new level by introducing new, tiny, small form factor package - SO8N. 

STM8S001J3 belongs to STM8S Value Line series. All STM8S Value line microcontrollers are fully compatible with the existing STM8S product portfolio, sharing the same IPs, key parameter performance and development tools.

 

STM8S001J3 has small package and little number of pins, but still it embeds rich set of peripherals. Below some of key features of this device:

 

  • Core and system
    • Flexible clock control capable to use three clock sources: 2 internal (HSI 16MHz, LSI 128kHz), 1 external clock input.
    • Wide operating voltage range: from 2.95V to 5.5V
    • 5 I/Os
    • 8- and 16-bit timers
  • Memories
    • 8k Flash
    • 1k RAM
    • 128 Bytes EEPROM
  • Conenctivity and debug
    • UART
    • SPI
    • I2C
    • Single Wire Interface Module
  • Analog
    • 10-bit ADC with 3 channels

All these peripherals can be used on 5 I/Os thanks to smart multiplexing system.

You can immediately start your design based on STM8S001J3 with free of charge development tools: Cosmic compiler, STM8CubeMX, Standard Peripheral Library and STVD IDE.

2017 STM8 Wish List

Posted by Amel N Employee Jan 5, 2017

Dear Community Members & stm8 funs,

 

BEST WISHES for the New Year!!!

 

As done for the STM32 Community here, and to satisfy STM8 users who want to express their STM8 related expectations (like travkin.roman who already started it in Why not STM8 wish list?): we would like to hear you and gather all wishes here.

 

So please keep us informed on:

  • what you need to make STM8 products more useful for you?
  • what has to be improved on our side?
  • ...

Again, feel free to express all your expectations!

 

STM8
