STSPIN by STMicroelectronics
It’s often not easy for designers of Industry 4.0 and other high-end consumer electronic systems to identify the right components for their applications. They need something that delivers the flexibility and power of a microcontroller-based motor drive with the convenience, simplicity and space-efficiency of a single chip. Furthermore, they have to be cost-efficient at the same time. With the STSPIN32F0, STMicroelectronics provides a motor control system in package that offers exactly what engineers are looking for. As a pioneer in the field of motor and motion control ST is ableRead More
Designers of embedded applications are pretty much spoilt for choice nowadays. They have many opportunities to choose from. With the ARM® mbed™ IoT Device Platform developers are able to easily build IoT devices and applications. With microcontrollers from STMicroelectronics – partner of ARM mbed – they will additionally benefit from extensive expertise in MCU architecture, technology and multi-source manufacturing. Developers of embedded applications and devices can release their creativity with the STM32 family. The 32-bit Flash microcontrollers are based on the ARM Cortex®-M processor and combine high performance, real-time capabilities,Read More
StartMeUp event Amsterdam
About a year ago EBV started to invest in an initiative that is aimed to provide start-up companies and electronic newcomers a platform that supports them in creating electronic products and applications. The EBV StartMeUp was born. With professional know-how gained through decades of experience the team helps companies to get started and accompanies them until their products are being brought to market and further. Since then a lot of things happened within the last year. The EBV StartMeUp team attended several events, trade fairs and conferences to raise awarenessRead More

Smart homes and building automation are being discussed already for quite a while in the IoT community. Detailed concepts to save energy and make life more comfortable for the people more often find their ways into everyday life. Automated and smart heating systems or intelligent lighting to save energy cost are nothing new anymore. Such smart systems begin to enter other areas too, as we found out during the ISH trade fair, the world’s leading trade fair for bathroom experience, building services, energy, air conditioning technology and renewable energies, twoRead More
Embedded World 2017 EBV booth
In the wink of an eye the second day of embedded world 2017 was over again. The embedded community gathered our booth, that there were literally not breaks to rest. Not surprisingly, because there is so much to see and time is limited. But it was again great fun to talk to the visitors. Yesterday, two of our manufacturing partners, Broadcom and Maxim Integrated, introduced there workstations in little video clip. Today we were able to record the two other platinum sponsors and suppliers, NXP and STMicroelectronics. A specialist ofRead More
releasing-your-creativity-stm32-h7
The STM32 family counts a new member. Two years after STMicroelectronics launched their first Cortex-M7 based STM32F7, they announced just recently the launch of the new STM32H7 that promises maximum performance. The microcontroller community is aware of the numerous variations of STM32 offering variable peripherals and various package sizes and forms. Additionally, thanks to a small chip size it can be offered cost-effectively. The STM32 family is a truly success story and has been shipped already more than 2 billion times. The 32-bit Flash microcontrollers based on the ARM® Cortex®‑M7Read More
Yes, the IoT will spark billions of new connections. Yes, there will be tons of unattended and autonomous devices connected to the internet that need to be secured. And yes everybody knows it. So why do we still see headlines about hacks popping up on a daily basis? Because implementing security isn’t easy nor is it cheap. Semiconductor manufacturers have understood this problem and are developing solutions in order to supply components that enable cost efficient and effortless implementation of protective features into applications. The latest “weapon” for the fightRead More
Extended Ecosystem for STM32F7
There are some great news for all those that are keen to use the STM32 high performance ARM Cortex-M7 MCUs: STMicroelectronics just introduced several new development boards for the latest members of its STM32F7 microcontroller series which are equipped with up to 2Mbyte of on-chip Flash memory and peripherals that help to create rich user interfaces. For makers and designers who need flexibility the Nucleo boards have always been the best choice. Among the releases is a new low-cost STM32 Nucleo-144 board featuring the STM32F767 variant. This board integrates theRead More
With the PCIM 2016, Europe’s leading exhibition and conference for power electronics and its applications in intelligent motion, renewable energy and energy management kicks off today in Nuremberg, Germany. Over the next three days developments in power semiconductors, passive components, thermal management products, energy storage, sensors and new materials as well as systems will be presented. Usually you would have to wait until the show is over to identify the trend of the year. In 2016 however, one topic will predictably be the most discussed one: Wide Band Gap (WBG)Read More
SiC MOSFET STMicroelectronics
Have you ever had a nightmare that involved a MOSFET data sheet? We wouldn’t be surprised if you did. Choosing the perfect components is hard. Selecting the best MOSFET is even worse. Scrolling through tons of data sheets to find the perfect balance between on resistance (RDS(on)) and gate charge (Qg), estimating switching and conduction losses and considering die size and packaging can make for a rough day. On the other side of the table the R&D guys at semiconductor manufacturers face similar challenges, as at some point optimising parametersRead More
