STM32 ODE news from ST – 01 September 2016

A handy set of signal conditioning solutions for your lab

The X-NUCLEO-IKA01A1 is a multifunctional expansion board based on ST’s operational amplifiers arranged in a set of pre-defined, commonly-found configurations for signal conditioning in your STM32 ODE project. If you need – for instance – a highly accurate current sensing circuit, here’s one based on the TSZ124 micropower op amp. Affordable and easy to use with X-CUBE-ANALOG1 expansion software, you will never part from the X-NUCLEO-IKA01A1.


Build a wireless sensor node and harvest data with a handy app

The FP-SNS-ALLMEMS1 function pack combines all the middleware needed to create your application using ST’s MEMS environmental, motion and position sensors, up to two microphones, and the BlueNRG, our Bluetooth low energy network processor. Build your wireless sensor node in minutes with the FP-SNS-ALLMEMS1 and a set of easy-to-use STM32 ODE boards. Using the BlueMS app that now supports FOTA updates, you can also display data from the sensors on your Android™ or iOS™ device in real time.


Get your arms around groundbreaking ranging and gesture detection technology

Combined into a convenient evaluation pack, the P-NUCLEO-53L0A1 includes an expansion board based on the VL53L0X ranging and gesture detection sensor module and an STM32F401 Nucleo development board. Along with our free expansion software (X-CUBE-53L0A1), you’ll be able to discover all the features and benefits of the world’s smallest Time-of-Flight (ToF) ranging sensor allowing absolute distance to be measured independently of target reflectance.


Spin your low-voltage stepper motor in minutes

The X-NUCLEO-IHM06A1 is an STM32 ODE expansion board based on the STSPIN220, a monolithic low-voltage driver for low-voltage stepper motors. It lets you instantly add high-precision, low torque, ripple motion control capability to your battery-operated STM32 ODE project – such as small robots and toys – thanks to its 1/256 step resolution. Together with the free X-CUBE-SPN6 expansion software, the X-NUCLEO-IHM06A1 will let you spin your design in just minutes.


New intelligent power switch for driving complex grounded loads

The X-NUCLEO-IPS02A1 is an STM32 ODE expansion board based on the VPS2535H, a double-channel high-side driver with analog feedback and extensive protection features such as a load current limitation that protects the device during overload conditions. Together with the free X-CUBE-IPS02A1 expansion software, this board provides an affordable and easy-to-use solution for driving complex – inductive, capacitive, resistive – grounded loads such as heating elements, solenoids, LEDs, lamps, pumps and fans in your STM32 ODE project.


Reduce dev costs with our NFC/RFID reader solution supporting all standards and functions

The X-NUCLEO-NFC03A1 is an NFC card reader expansion board based on our CR95HF NFC/RFID reader IC. This reader provides multi-protocol support for 13.56 MHz NFC/RFID communications such as ISO/IEC 14443-A/B, ISO/IEC 15693, ISO/IEC 18092 and NFC Forum protocols. Equipped with STM32Cube software technology (X-CUBE-NFC3), it facilitates portability across different STM32 MCUs and includes drivers for the dynamic multi-protocol contactless transceiver IC.
