Development Ecosystem Maximizes Access To Low-Power MCUs

STMicroelectronics offers a microcontroller (MCU) development ecosystem comprising prototype boards for all budgets and STM32Cube software support for the STM32L4 series MCUs now entering full production. The STM32L4 MCU devices feature the 80-MHz ARM Cortex-M4 core with DSP extensions and floating-point unit, and achieve significant power savings through features such as smart architecture with FlexPowerControl, dynamic voltage scaling, and seven power-management modes with sub-mode options. Among these, Batch Acquisition Mode (BAM) allows capturing data from peripherals even while the core is powered down. The STM32L4 prototype boards include the fully featured STM32L476G-EVAL Evaluation Board priced at $289 and the $19.90 Discovery Kit (STM32L476G-DISCO) with features including a MEMS microphone and motion sensors, d/a converter, 96-segment LCD, and 16-MB QSPI Flash memory. Users are free to fine-tune hardware and software on-the-fly throughout development. STM32L4 microcontrollers are priced from $3.40 in the LQFP64 package for orders of 10,000 pieces.
