Low-power MCU for smart devices

14 November 2018 DSP, Micros & Memory

The STM8L001 ultra-low-power microcontroller from STMicroelectronics targets cost-conscious applications, by combining ST’s highly efficient 8-bit core with essential and effective peripherals, in the compact, low-pin-count SO-8 outline.

The microcontroller provides essential features for basic sensing, communication and control, including two comparators, SPI, I²C and UART interfaces, and one 8-bit and two 16-bit timers. 8 KBytes of Flash memory and 1,5 KBytes of RAM provide cost-effective code and data storage, and up to 2 KBytes of the Flash memory can be assigned to act as data EEPROM. A flexible internal clock system, adjustable from 32 kHz to 16 MHz, saves component count and simplifies board design.

The STM8L001 delivers a competitively priced device with optimised performance for applications such as industrial sensors, lighting equipment, battery chargers, toys, e-bikes, access cards, PC accessories, printer cartridges, and other cost- and power-sensitive smart products.

The up to six user I/Os allow engineers to take full advantage of the STM8L001’s specification. ST’s ultra-low-power technologies ensure frugal operation in all modes, cutting current to as little as 300 nA in halt mode to maximise the lifetime of battery-powered devices. It is also flexible, operating from 1,8 V to 3,6 V, and fully specified from -40°C to 125°C to ensure reliability even in harsh conditions.
