STM32L152RB Ultra-low-power ARM Cortex-M3 MCU with 128 Kbytes Flash, 32 MHz CPU, LCD, USB

The ultralow power STM32L15xxx incorporates the connectivity power of the universal serial bus (USB) with the high-performance ARM Cortex™-M3 32-bit RISC core operating at a 32 MHz frequency, a memory protection unit (MPU), high-speed embedded memories (Flash memory up to 128 Kbytes and RAM up to 16 Kbytes), and an extensive range of enhanced I/Os and peripherals connected to two APB buses. All devices offer a 12-bit ADC, 2 DACs and 2 ultralow power comparators, six general-purpose 16-bit timers and two basic timers, which can be used as time bases. Moreover, the STM32L15xxx devices contain standard and advanced communication interfaces: up to two I2Cs and SPIs, three USARTs and a USB. They also include a real-time clock and a set of backup registers that remain powered in Standby mode. Finally, the integrated LCD controller has a built-in LCD voltage generator that allows you to drive up to 8 multiplexed LCDs with contrast independent of the supply voltage.

The ultralow power STM32L15xxx operates from a 1.8 to 3.6 V power supply (down to 1.65 V at power down) with BOR and from a 1.65 to 3.6 V power supply without BOR option. It is available in the -40 to +85 °C temperature range. A comprehensive set of power-saving modes allows the design of low-power applications.

STM32 Timer Example

STM32 Timer Example

The STM32 Timer example program shows how to configure and use the timer TIM1 of STMicroelectronics STM32F103xx microcontroller.

TIM1 is configured to generate an update interrupt every 250 ms. The lit LED moves on every timer tick.

The configuration of the clocks and the timer TIM1 is done using the Configuration Wizard in file STM32_Init.c.

Two Vision targets are available:

Simulator where the program runs in the software simulator.
MCBSTM32 where the program runs from internal Flash located on the microcontroller.
