Flexible STM32 Nucleo board with STM32L4 MCU, SMPS and enhanced connectivity

The Nucleo-L433RC-P board combines the ultra-low-power STM32L433 MCU together with an external SMPS to deliver further power optimization. Its flexible power-supply options as well as support for Arduino, ST Zio and morpho connectivity for expanded functionalities instantly ensure increased autonomy for power-sensitive projects. Developers will also appreciate its on-board ST-LINK/V2-1 debugger/programmer with USB re-enumeration capability.

 

New STM8S Value line MCU offers the best on just 8 pins!

Now in full production, the STM8S001J3M3 offers performance, robustness and reduced system cost in an SO8 package. This 8-bit MCU features 8 Kbytes of Flash memory, 1 Kbyte of RAM, and 128 bytes data EEPROM with a 16-MHz core speed. With a 2.95 to 5.5V operating voltage and peripherals including a 10-bit ADC, 8- and 16-bit timers, and 5 I/Os as well as UART, SPI, I2C and SWIM interfaces, it offers the best of our popular STM8S003 at the most affordable price.

New video demonstrates how to easily port STM32 low-layer APIs

To further simplify developers’ lives with the STM32Cube environment, we just introduced a new video demonstrating how to easily port an example built using ST’s new STM32Cube low-layer APIs from one board (NUCLEO-L476RG) to another (32L496GDISCOVERY) within the same STM32 family. The process can be as simple as copying the application code from the original project and pasting it into the template project source files already configured to accommodate the new BSP.
