STMicroelectronics Release New 8-bit Microcontroller in Cost-Saving 8-Pin Package
New Microcontroller offers 8KB of Memory with ADC, I²C, UART and Single-Wire Programming
STMicroelectronics has introduced its new 8-bit microcontroller the STM8S001. The STM8S001 further
extends the choice and freedom for budget-conscious designers with the microcontroller supplied in an
economical SO-8 package. The STM8S001 offers I²C, UART, and SPI interfaces,
giving unusually versatile connectivity options. With a generous 8KB Flash memory, 1KB RAM, 128-byte EEPROM,
and 3-channel 10-bit ADC also on-chip, it delivers key features of ST’s most popular STM8S003 MCU in a space-saving,
Additional features include five GPIOs, one 8-bit and two 16-bit timers, and an internal RC oscillator that allows flexible clock control from 128kHz to 16MHz. There is also a Single-Wire Interface Module (SWIM) for programming and debugging.
Fully specified from -40°C to 125°C and featuring the modern and efficient STM8 core operating at 16MHz, the STM8S001 is ideal for industrial devices like smart sensors and lighting controls, as well as consumer products such as toys, small appliances, personal electronics, PC peripherals, battery chargers, and many others.
