Future Electronics Brings 32-bit Performance to 8- and 16-bit Applications with the STM32 F0 from STMicroelectronics

Montreal, Canada – August 15, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, brings 32-bit performance to 8- and 16-bit applications with the STM32 F0 from STMicroelectronics.

The STM32 F0 provides 32-bit performance at 8-bit budget pricing, enabling OEMs to bring substantial value to end-users without having to compromise functionality.

The STM32 F0 lowers product cost compared to 8- and 16-bit-based designs. To complete a 16 x 16 multiplication for a processing algorithm, a 16-bit CPU requires four multiplies and several additions, depending upon the implementation, while an 8-bit CPU would require significantly more cycles. Meanwhile, with the STM32 F0, this takes a single instruction.

The result is code that makes better utilization of MCU resources, leading to faster operation, more performance per MHz, higher code density, and greater power efficiency. Since each instruction does more per clock cycle, applications can be written using less code.

In addition to accelerating development, shorter code is easier to debug as well. Together, all of these benefits lead to lower system cost.

In addition, the STM32 F0 is a full embedded MCU built using the same STM32 DNA that the rest of the STM32 family has, including excellent real-time performance, DMA, high-resolution ADC and DAC peripherals, motor control timers, and connectivity interfaces.

Future Electronics Invites Developers to Qualify for Embedded Workbench Promotion from Renesas and IAR

Montreal, Canada – July 01, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is encouraging developers to take advantage of a beneficial Embedded Workbench Promotion being offered by Renesas and IAR.

RX and RL78 MCUs from Renesas and development tools from IAR are excellent choices for developers of embedded projects on a standard platform, enabling them to reuse their development environment regardless of the MCU selected. The Embedded Workbench Promotion from Renesas and IAR allows developers to take advantage of the latest, most effective microcontrollers without having to change development tools.

The “Standardize Now” offer by Renesas enables embedded developers designing with Renesas’s flagship RX or RL78 MCUs to get one free license for Embedded Workbench, the popular C/C++ compiler and debugger tool suite from IAR.

By standardizing on IAR, the same tool and development environment can be used, whatever the microcontroller. With the same powerful IDE, developers will be able to unleash the performance of the Renesas RX 32-bit MCU and take advantage of the full features of Renesas’s true low power RL78 devices.

This offer means current Renesas MCU users can utilize Renesas’s latest technology embedded in the RX and RL MCUs with no additional investment, thus leveraging previous developments with other Renesas MCUs. IAR supports all Renesas MCUs, and the same suite of development tools can be used across all Renesas developments, even those based on older MCUs.

For developers new to Renesas, this offer enables them to benefit from Renesas products and support without disrupting current developments. IAR supports all major CPU architectures, and the same tool can be used on current designs as well as on the new and exciting Renesas RX and RL78 families.

The promotion is only valid in the Americas (North America, South America and Central America). The customer project must use a Renesas RX or RL78 MCU product and it must be used in a commercial application.

Renesas Electronics Corporation is the world’s number one supplier of microcontrollers and a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions including microcontrollers, SoC solutions, and a broad range of analog and power devices.

IAR Systems is the world’s leading independent provider of software for programming of processors in embedded systems. The software is used by around 20,000 large and small corporations to develop products based on 8-, 16- and 32-bit processors, mainly in the areas of industrial automation, medical devices, consumer electronics and the automotive industry.
