ST has extended the STM32L4 technology providing more performance (up to 120 MHz), more embedded memory (up to 2 Mbytes of Flash memory and 640 Kbytes of SRAM) and richer graphics and connectivity features while keeping our best-in-class ultra-low-power capability.
The STM32L4+ series shatters the limits of processing capabilities in the ultra-low-power world. By delivering an 150 DMIPS/409 CoreMark score while executing from internal Flash memory and embedding 640 Kbytes SRAM, the STM32L4+ series enables more advanced consumer, medical and industrial low-power applications and devices.
STM32L4+ microcontrollers offer dynamic voltage scaling in order to balance power consumption with processing demand, low-power peripherals (LP UART, LP timers - available in Stop mode), safety and security features, smart and numerous peripherals, advanced as well as low-power analog peripherals such as op amps, comparators, 12-bit DACs and 16-bit ADC (hardware oversampling).
The new STM32L4+ series also embeds advanced features for rendering graphics, enabling state-of-the-art graphical user interfaces.
The Chrom-ART Accelerator™, ST's proprietary 2D hardware graphic accelerator, efficiently handles repetitive graphics releasing the main CPU capabilities for real time processing or even more advanced graphic operations.
The Chrom-ART Accelerator is coupled with the large embedded SRAM, the Chrom-GRC™ round display memory optimizer, the high-throughput Octo-SPI interface and the advanced TFT and DSI controllers, allowing you to achieve “smartphone-like” graphical user interfaces in an ultra-low power single-chip solution.
To simplify migration and give you all the flexibility you need, the STM32L4+ is pin-to-pin compatible with the different STM32 series and is fully integrated in the STM32 ecosystem.

Getting started with STM32L4+
- Order the 144-pin nucleo boards (NUCLEO-L4R5ZI, NUCLEO-L4R5ZI-P or NUCLEO-L4P5ZG) and the discovery kits (32L4R9IDISCOVERY or STM32L4P5G-DK) or the STM32L4R9I-EVAL evaluation kit for STM32L4+ MCUs.
- Download the STM32CubeL4 embedded software package containing the HAL, LL (Low-Layer) APIs, and middleware. Then install ST’s STM32CubeMX graphical software configuration tool that supports pinout configuration, code generation and a power-consumption calculator. Start with one of the many examples provided or build your own project from scratch.
