8-bit Microcontroller Features Compact 8-Pin Package

STMicroelectronics has introduced its new 8-bit STM8S001 microcontroller (MCU) in an economical SO-8 package. The STM8S001 has I2C, UART, and SPI interfaces, giving unusually versatile connectivity options. With a generous 8KB Flash memory, 1 KB RAM, 128-byte EEPROM, and 3-channel 10-bit ADC also on-chip, it delivers key features of ST’s STM8S003 MCU in a space-saving, low-pin-count device. Additional features include five en.STM8S_MCU_8_pin_package_N3970S_bigGPIOs, one 8-bit and two 16-bit timers, and an internal RC oscillator that allows flexible clock control from 128 kHz to 16 MHz. 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 16 MHz, the STM8S001 is well suited 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. The STM8S001 in 8-pin SO-8 is in production now, priced from $0.20 for orders of 1,000 pieces. A Discovery kit will be available in Q4 2017.
