8-pin Device Brings 32-bit MCUs Capabilities to Simple Applications

STMicroelectronics has announced four STM32 MCUs that now available in an 8-pin package, enabling simple embedded projects to leverage 32-bit performance and flexibility in a compact and cost-effective outline. The four new STM32G0 devices deliver a combination of 8-pin economy with a 64 MHz Arm Cortex-M0+ CPU giving 59 DMIPS, up to 8 KB RAM and 32 KB flash on-chip, and high-performing peripherals including a 2.5 Msps ADC, high-resolution timer and a high-speed SPI.

With flexible mapping of I/O pins and internal MCU functions, designers can upgrade end-product functionality without trading board real-estate or bill-of-materials costs. The stability of the internal oscillator, which is accurate to ±1% over wide temperature and voltage ranges, also saves external clock components.

Benefiting from the low-power design features of the STM32 MCU family, the 8-pin STM32G0 devices can be used in energy-conscious applications governed by battery-capacity limits, eco-design legislation, or market expectations such as appliance energy ratings. The new MCUs also ease future scalability through the features available across the STM32G0 series, which offers up to 100 package pins, up to 512 KB flash, additional high-performance analog peripherals, and cyber-protection features.

The new 8-pin STM32G0 MCUs are available now in 6mm x 4.9mm SO8N, from $0.31 for 1000-piece orders of the STM32G030J6 Value Line MCU. The 8-pin Discovery kit STM32G0316-DISCO, available for $9.90, eases developers’ lives with quick and affordable evaluation. STM32G031J6, STM32G031J4, and STM32G041J6 Access Line MCUs are also available in SO8N, offering additional functionality including a hardware AES acceleration, Securable Memory Area enabling secure boot or firmware update, extra timers and 96-bit unique device ID.
