The STM8-SO8-DISCO helps to discover features of STM8S Value Line and STM8L Value Line devices available in SO8 packages. This discovery kit offers three SO8 to DIL8 modules designed with STM8S001J3M3, STM8L001J3M3 and STM8L050J3M3 microcontrollers, and allows the user to easily develop and share applications. It includes an on-board ST-LINK/V2 to debug and program any of the embedded STM8 microcontrollers, or even an external target by means of a SWIM connector.
The STM8-SO8-DISCO is operated by simply plugging it into a PC through a standard USB Type-A to Micro-B cable.
