Summary

The STM32 MCUs, built upon the highly energy-efficient Arm Cortex-M processors, are already in billions of domestic appliances, industrial controls, computer peripherals, communication devices, and equipment managing smart cities and infrastructure. The line also adds new features needed by today’s applications, including advanced cybersecurity with new hardware-based protection targeting PSA and SESIP (Security Evaluation Standard for IoT Platforms) assurance level 3, as well as graphics accelerators for rich user experiences. With our low-power expertise and focus, we are particularly strong in the ultra-low-power category with about 25% of that market,” said Ricardo de Sa Earp, Group Vice President, Microcontroller Division General Manager, STMicroelectronics. In addition to saving power, designers can tackle demanding applications leveraging new features such as greater Flash density, now with up to 2MB on chip and fast interfaces to off-chip memory for further expansion. Building on the cybersecurity focus of the STM32L5, which includes a Cortex-M33 core with Arm TrustZone technology and an ST-specific security feature set, the STM32U5 series introduces new and innovations: • AES encryption and Public Key Authorisation (PKA) are now hardware resistant to side-channel attacks by Differential Power Analysis (DPA).
