It offers a wide range of features, including 16 MHz clock speed, 8 KB of flash memory, 1 KB of RAM, and 128 bytes of EEPROM. It also supports a variety of communication protocols, including SPI, I2C, and UART.

Additionally, the STM8S003 development board is compatible with the Arduino IDE, allowing users to take advantage of a large community of developers and a wide range of libraries and tools. This makes it easy to get started with programming, even for those who are new to the field.

Overall, the STM8S003 development board is an excellent choice for anyone who needs a low-cost and easy-to-use development platform that offers high performance and flexibility. Whether you are working on a hobby project or a professional application, this board has everything you need to get started quickly and easily.

Why STM8S003F3?


Due to the chip shortage, a large number of us had to seek alternative microcontrollers (MCUs) that we hadn’t used before. Surprisingly, not only do alternative options exist, but they are also priced at half the cost. For instance, the STM8S003 series can be obtained for as little as 60 cents per single chip.
