Evaluation Kit Packs Three STM8 MCUs

(STMicroelectronics)

For less than $10, the STM8-SO8-DISCO 8-bit microcontroller (MCU) Discovery Kit from STMicroelectronics lets users evaluate three STM8 variants currently available in the popular 8-pin SO8 package. The kit offers no-frills simplicity and features to jump-start the next stage of development.

 

There is a single button and indicator LED for interacting with the board, while the embedded STLINK/V2 and USB port simplify in-circuit debugging and programming from a connected PC. The MCUs are soldered onto individual break-offs that can be separated from the main board as pluggable DIL-8 modules ready to start prototyping.

Infosys positioned as a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Services for Communications Service Providers, Worldwide 2020

The Gartner Magic Quadrant evaluated 12 vendors and Infosys was recognized for its completeness of vision and ability to execute.
Infosys leverages its global partner ecosystem, CSP-dedicated studio, design tools, and 5G Living Labs to boost service delivery. Innovative solutions such as the ‘Infosys Cortex2’ are driving business value for CSPs.

 

 The three MCUs are the STM8S001J3M3, STM8L001J3M3, and STM8L050J3M3. The STM8S001J3M3 delivers features including 16-bit timers with three comparator outputs, three capture-compare channels, a 10-bit ADC, and an 8-bit timer. The STM8L001J3M3 consumes 0.3µA in Halt mode and integrates 8- and 16-bit timers and two comparators. Also leveraging ultra-low-power technology, the STM8L050J3M3 adds a 12-bit ADC and 4-channel DMA controller.

 

The MCUs all feature the STM8 core running at 16 MHz, and 8 KB flash. System-control features include watchdog and clock control, and popular communication interfaces including UART, SPI, and Fast I2C. The kit is priced at $8.50. For more details, checkout the datasheet.
