ST offers a full range of microcontroller families. These include general-purpose 8-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers, secure microcontrollers for applications such as bank cards, IT Security, e-Government, Public Transport, and Mobile Communications, dedicated microcontrollers for automotive applications, and a series of embedded microprocessors for various applications in industrial, computing and communications markets.
The STM32 family of 32‑bit Flash microcontrollers based on the ARM Cortex‑M processor is designed to offer new degrees of freedom to MCU users. It offers a 32‑bit product range that combines high performance, real-time capabilities, digital signal processing, and low‑power, low‑voltage operation, while maintaining full integration and ease of development.
The unparalleled and large range of STM32 devices, based on an industry-standard core and accompanied by a vast choice of tools and software, makes this family of products the ideal choice, both for small projects and for entire platform decisions.
- Real-time performance
- Outstanding power efficiency
- Superior and innovative peripherals
- Maximum integration
- ARM + ST ecosystem (evaluation boards, discovery kits, software libraries, RTOS)
ST's 8-bit microcontroller platform is implemented around a high-performance 8-bit core and a state-of-the-art set of peripherals. This platform is manufactured using an ST-proprietary 130 nm embedded non-volatile memory technology. The STM8 allows fast and safe development through enhanced stack pointer operations, advanced addressing modes and new instructions. The STM8 platform supports four product series:
- STM8S, mainstream MCUs
- STM8L, ultra-low-power MCUs
- STM8AF and STM8AL, automotive MCUs
- STM8T, touch-sensing MCUs
