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.
