Adesto XiP boosts battery life in ST's IoT nodes

By Nick Flaherty www.flaherty.co.uk

Adesto Technologies has teamed up with STMicroelectronics for low-power, low-latency eXecute-in-Place (XiP) operation on ST’s STM32L4+ microcontrollers.

The combination of STM32L4+ MCUs and Adesto's EcoXiP non-volatile memories enables designers to create IoT devices requiring numerous sensors and other advanced capabilities with longer battery life.

The STM32L4+ series adds more embedded memory and connnectivity, and is the first STM32-family architecture to have two Octal SPI ports which support NOR Flash including XiP operation.

For many applications, the embedded memory in an MCU is not sufficient, and external XiP memory provides a solution. 

“By pairing ST’s new ultra-low power STM32L4+ MCUs with EcoXiP, designers can architect high-performance, low-power XiP systems for more energy-efficient, lower-cost products,” said Gideon Intrater, CTO of Adesto. “Not every application needs a XiP solution, but for those that can benefit from it, there is no better solution in the market than EcoXiP.”

Samples of Adesto’s EcoXiP non-volatile system-accelerating memory are available now in densities from 32Mbit to 128Mbit.
