STMICROELECTRONICS INTRODUCES NEW STM32H5 MCU SERIES
The new STM32H5 MCU series from STMicroelectronics boosts performance and security for next-generation smart applications.
STMicroelectronics has introduced its new performance-oriented STM32H5 microcontroller (MCU) series with cutting-edge security provided by STM32Trust TEE Security Manager for smart, connected devices.
The new STM32H5 MCUs contain the embedded core from Arm®, the Cortex®-M33, which blends high performance with security, energy efficiency, and affordability, to best address the mid-range class of MCU-based applications.
The STM32H5 series is designed to accelerate innovation at scale for the coming generations of smart, connected devices, which provide more intelligence “in the edge” and also strengthen defences against attacks on IoT assets. The Cortex-M33 core brings Arm’s TrustZone® architecture. Building on this, ST adds a range of its own security features, including some developed with ST Authorized Partner, ProvenRun.
The STM32H5 is the first MCU series to come with system-on-chip (SoC) security services accessed via an industry-standard API. This facility, called STM32Trust TEE Secure Manager, saves developers from writing their own code while providing security services developed according to known best practices. It simplifies development while ensuring effective protection.
Typical applications for the new MCUs include air conditioning systems, appliances, alarm systems, industrial programmable logic controllers (PLCs), motor controls, industrial pumps, communication gateways, lighting controls, and energy conversion. They are also used in consumer products such as PC peripherals, smartphones, and accessories.
