ST’s STM8AL ultra-low-power series for automotive applications puts green energy, application safety and power efficiency at the forefront. It is particularly suited to battery-operated functions such as remote keyless entry and tire pressure monitoring, as well as for applications where power consumption is critical over time: companion microcontroller, immobilizers and sensors.
Based on the STM8A embedded features for system cost reduction and reliability, the STM8AL series supports LIN communications and offers more features to increase computation performance, save power consumption and save memory space, using the LCD driver, RTC, DMA, comparators, 12-bit ADC and DAC. It offers a unique combination of flexible, innovative and cost-effective solutions for automotive applications.
The B-U585I-IOT02A Discovery kit provides a complete demonstration and development platform for the STM32U585AI microcontroller, featuring an Arm® Cortex®-M33 core with Arm® TrustZone® and Armv8-M mainline security extension, 2 Mbytes of Flash memory and 786 Kbytes of SRAM, as well as smart peripheral resources.
