STMicroelectronics is paving the way to even more intelligent smart devices everywhere with its newSTM32H7 series of microcontrollers, which embeds the highest SRAM memory (1 Mbytes), Flash memory up to 2 MB, and the richest connectivity peripheral set ever seen in the STM32 platform.
Central to this leap in capability is ST’s own highly advanced 40 nm chip-fabrication process combined with innovations in the product architecture, unleashing the performance of the core and enabling ultra-fast data transfers through the system while consuming less than 280 uA/MHz in run mode and less than 7 uA in stand-by. The first device in the new series is the STM32H743, which features the ARMCortex-M7 core running at 400 MHz. This MCU is the highest-performing implementation of ARM’s highest-performing Cortex-M core currently in the market. The STM32H7 microcontrollers are perfect for industrial gateways, home automation, telecom equipment and smart consumer products, as well as high-performance motor controls, domestic appliances, and small devices with rich user interfaces. Integrated state-of-the-art security features, including cryptographic accelerators and provision for secure-key storage, provide connected objects with a high level of protection against online threats both during the manufacturing and in the field; perfect for Internet of Things (IoT) appliances.
“The diversity of IoT and embedded applications demands scalable MCU solutions,” said James McNiven, general manager for CPU and media processing groups, ARM. “The advanced capabilities of the H7 series will enable developers to address the high end of the embedded market while delivering all of the efficiency and ease-of-use benefits of an ARM Cortex-M based device. With the ARM mbed(TM) OS technology supported on the Cortex-M7, developers can have easy access to advanced software stacks for fast development.”
