STMicroelectronics ST32-M Low Power Processor Chip

STMicroelectronics introduced the ST32-M low-power processor chip. The ST32-M is ideal for managing SIM data for machine-to-machine (M2M) cellular communications. ST32-M devices will sample this quareter. Mass production in the DFN8 6 x 5mm package is expected to begin in Q1 2010. The ST32-M family complements the ST32 range (targeting classical Java SIM card ICs) and the ST33 family (for the highly secure SIM card market). The extended Flash cycling capabilities of the ST32-M family, when combined with application-specific software development, will allow Mobile Network Operators to achieve multi-million data cycles in harsh environments.

STMicroelectronics STM65xx Smart-Reset Chip Family

STMicroelectronics introduced the STM6502, STM6503, STM6504, and STM6505 smart-reset chips. The STM65xx family of smart-reset Integrated Circuits (IC) enables the system to be restarted safely without removing the battery or finding a tool to push the reset button, usually hidden behind a hole in the casing. ST’s smart reset solution simplifies design, reduces part count, and saves on overall system cost while improving the industrial design. The STM65xx is in mass production now and is priced at $0.53 for 10,000 units.
