Bangalore, July 8, 2013 – Global semiconductor leader STMicroelectronics, has  significantly brought down the cost of end products in consumer and control applications with the launch of its new STM32 line of microcontrollers. The 32 bit controller is available for as low as 32 US cents in quantities.
The new STM32F030 Value Line is based on the ARM Cortex core running at 48MHz.
The line of products begins at 16KByte Flash and 4KByte RAM in a 20 pin package, and comprises a total of five parts up to 64KByte Flash, 8KByte RAM and 32, 48 or 64 pin packages. All variants feature a 12-bit 1Msample/s ADC, 1.2V internal reference, communication peripherals, temperature sensor and timers capable of supporting ADC synchronization, dead-time management, and PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) timing for motor control. Developers gain entry to ST’s full portfolio of ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers, which includes more than 360 variants leveraging extensive pin, software and peripherals compatibility between Cortex-M0, M3 and M4 families.
ST is now taking sample orders for the STM32F030 Value line. Volume production is planned to begin in Q3 2013 announced STM at a media briefing here today
