Flash + Dev Kit = Efficient Smart Devices

STMicroelectronics is using Macronix International’s 8-bit I/O Serial NOR flash memory for its STM32L4+ microcontroller discovery kits and evaluation boards. The Serial NOR Flash series meet the demand for "instant-on" performance and real-time system responsiveness in automotive, industrial and consumer applications. The products can perform up to an operational frequency of 250 MHz with 500 MB/s read throughput, and enables systems with a rich graphical user interface and ultra-fast response times.


ST's STM32L4+ MCUs are equipped to operate as the central controller in fitness bands, smart watches, small medical equipment, smart meters, smart industrial sensors and more, which require sophisticated functions, instant responses and minimal downtime for battery charging. For application developers, the STM32L4+ offers the largest on-chip memory in its class of ultra-low-power microcontrollers.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


The device offers advanced graphics capabilities via the Chrom-GRC graphics controller that can handle circular displays (TFT-LCDs) as efficiently as square ones, without wasting resources managing pixels that are never displayed. Also on-chip is ST's Chrom-ART Accelerator, which enhances graphics performance.
