STMicroelectronics’ Compact STM8L001 MicrocontrollCovers Essentials for Smart Devices, as it Cuts Power, Cost, and Footprint



The STM8L001 ultra-low-power microcontroller from STMicroelectronics targets cost-conscious applications, by combining ST’s highly efficient 8-bit STM8 core with essential and effective peripherals, in the compact, low-pin-count SO-8 outline.

The microcontroller provides essential features for basic sensing, communication, and control, including two comparators, SPI, I2C, and UART interfaces, and one

8- and two 16-bit timers. 8Kbytes of Flash memory and 1.5Kbytes of RAM provide cost-effective code and data storage, and up to 2Kbytes of the Flash memory can be assigned to act as data EEPROM. A flexible internal clock system, adjustable from 32kHz to 16MHz, saves component count and simplifies board design.

The STM8L001 delivers a competitively priced device with best-in-class performance for applications such as industrial sensors, lighting equipment, battery chargers, toys, e-Bikes, access cards, PC accessories, printer cartridges, and other cost- and power-sensitive smart products.

The up to six user I/Os allow engineers to take full advantage of the STM8L001’s optimized specification. ST’s ultra-low-power technologies ensure frugal operation in all modes, cutting current to as little as 300nA in halt mode to maximize the lifetime of battery-powered devices. The STM8L001 is also flexible, operating from 1.8V to 3.6V, and fully specified from -40C to 125C to ensure reliability even in harsh conditions.

The STM8L001J3 is in production now in the SO-8 package, priced from $0.21 for orders of 10,000 pieces.
