STMicroelectronics launches development board based on STM8 Nucleo-32

ST's new STM8 development board adopts the easy-to-use Nucleo-32 development board form factor, allowing the use of 8-bit STM8 microcontrollers (MCUs) to develop prototypes faster, more economically, and easier to use, suitable for all types Maker.

This compact board is equipped with a USB interface, making it easy to control and power the board. The on-board ST-LINK debugger / programmer eliminates the need for an external debug probe and supports simple drag-and-drop flash programming. The Arduino ™ Nano pins on the board can be connected to an off-the-shelf shield board, simplifying the expansion of motherboard functions and enabling users to interact with the open source hardware community. These boards are supported by major development tool chains, including IAR Embedded Workbench for STM8 and Cosmic CXSTM8.

STM8 MCU is based on a high-performance 8-bit core, integrates large-capacity on-chip memory, including up to 128KB of flash memory, and shares the latest peripheral interfaces with the STM32 MCU family, such as timers, analog peripherals, CAN2.0B and digital interface. When designing and developing smart sensors, actuators and other products that have strict restrictions on power consumption, space and cost, STM8 MCUs are a popular choice.

The STM8 Nucleo-32 development board's first listed product, NUCLEO-8S207K8, integrates a 32-pin STM8S207K8 MCU, and features include 12 high-current output ports and multiple capture and comparison channels.

NUCLEO-8S207K8 can now be ordered from distributors or directly from ST.
