Electronic circuits form a mostly invisible part of the world we live in today. These circuits are present in microchips or just “chips”, which combine the latest advances in performance, intelligence and, efficiency. Hundreds or thousands of these chips are integrated into each of the millions and billions of electronic devices people across the globe interact with every day. It is in this unseen realm that STMicroelectronics creates the sparks that animate the products we use at any given moment. Our technology is found everywhere microelectronics makes a positive contribution to people’s lives. Chips from ST embedding the most advanced innovations are an essential part of products as diverse as cars and key fobs, giant factory machines and data center power supplies, washing machines and hard disks, and smartphones and toothbrushes.

SPC58 Family

SPC58E line performance MCUs, based on Power Architecture® Technology, is designed for mission-critical automotive applications where the most stringent safety standards and real-time performance really matters.
Designed to meet the highest ASIL-D safety levels, the line perfectly fits advanced powertrain applications and Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) / Electric Vehicles (EV) motor drives, electric power steering, active suspension applications, anti-lock braking, as well as Advanced Driving Assistance Systems.
SPC58 E line automotive microcontrollers offers outstanding performance with up to 3 cores and up to 6 Mbytes of embedded Flash memory as well as separate SAR and sigma-delta ADCs ensuring speed, accuracy and high-resolution sensing. The performance lines support high operating temperature and ensure augmented connectivity capabilities through a rich set of communication interfaces including Ethernet, FlexRay, CAN FD, LIN, and SENT.
In terms of flash programming, JTAG debug interface can be used for the initial programming of the software. ProMik realized several project in the past where complex programming strategies were developed, involving MCUs of the SPC58 familiy

STM32F2x5

ST’s STM32F205/215 microcontrollers are designed for medical, industrial and consumer applications where the high level of integration and performance, embedded memories and peripherals inside packages as small as 4 x 4 mm are required.

ADAS & Radar Devices

ST’s product portfolio dedicated to Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) applications includes a range of components that make driving safer. Fully Autonomous vehicles will require advanced, automotive grade ADAS functionality, from a wide range of sensors, to have built in redundancy and be able to work in a wide range of environmental conditions. ST is a leader in this market with complete automotive solutions and integrated circuits. ProMik has a deep knowledge of programming automotive applications. Our semi-automated flash programming station SAP2100-AUTO performs highest industry standards while being the most cost-effective flash programming tool in series production.

STM8AF2

All devices of the STM8A product line provide the following benefits: reduced system cost, performance and robustness, short development cycles, and product longevity. The system cost is reduced thanks to an integrated true data EEPROM for up to 300 k write/erase cycles and a high system integration level with internal clock oscillators, watchdog, and brown-out reset. Short development cycles are guaranteed due to application scalability across a common family product architecture with compatible pinout, memory map and modular peripherals. The MSP2100NET uses the single wire (SWIM) interface to program the memory. Due to ProMik’s sophisticated flash programming algorithms, the STMAx family can be pe programmed at the MCUs physical limits.

PROGRAMMING STRATEGY

  • Full Parallel Programming of 30 single PCBs by MSP2100NET via SWD interface with a special FPGA configuration
  • Inhouse developed 12V/5V power stage to supply the PCBs developed by ProMik
  • Programming of MCU via SWD interface
  • Using temporarily downloaded ProMik bootloader for programming an external QSPI-Flash
