STM8s Discovery
« on: January 04, 2010, 07:48:08 PM »
STM8S is STs new line of 8-bit microcontrollers. The great thing about it is that they released a USB programmer/development board... for just $7 or as a free sample!


The first part of the board is a programmer that can be broken off and reused on other STM8s controllers. The second part is the actual development board, with some pins broken out, LED, and capacitive touch sensor.

I have yet to play around with mine, but there is a growing user base on the ST forums. Either get it as a sample now or wait for the distributors to have it in stock (within 1 day of ST emailing the release of the Discovery, Mouser and Digikey sold out!!)

Impressive that they can sell it for only 7 bucks.
The question is: will it pass the test of time?

They're over $10 at Newark! :o  I guess they are seizing an opportunity.

Where are the free samples? I'm thinking of picking up one to play around with for use in one of my products. It seems cheaper than AVRs, might even replace them one day.
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!

Log in and there should be some flash based sample selector, it is under microcontroller, then stm8s or something.
