Adesto’s EcoXiP™ enables ultra-low-power, low-latency XiP system operation on STMicroelectronics’ new STM32L4+ MCUs

Combined solution lets designers create sensor-rich IoT devices with long battery life

SANTA CLARA, CA – February 22, 2018 – Adesto Technologies (NASDAQ: IOTS), a leading provider of application-specific, ultra-low-power non-volatile memory (NVM) products, announced its collaboration with STMicroelectronics to enable ultra-low-power, low-latency eXecute-in-Place (XiP) system operation on ST’s STM32L4+ microcontrollers (MCUs) through Adesto’s EcoXiP™ system-accelerating NVM. The combination of STM32L4+ MCUs and EcoXiP enables designers to create IoT devices requiring numerous sensors and other advanced capabilities while ensuring long battery life.

STM32L4+ series MCUs build on ST’s popular STM32L4 series MCUs by increasing performance, adding more embedded memory, and delivering richer graphics and connectivity features, while maintaining ultra-low power consumption. The STM32L4+ is the first STM32-family architecture to offer 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 the natural solution. Built on an innovative memory and protocol architecture, EcoXiP sets a new standard for performance, cost and power for devices requiring a XiP architecture. It delivers high system performance, optimized latency and throughput, concurrent read/write capability, enhanced security, and the best standby power for a wide range of connected products including IoT edge devices, wearables, connected and wireless embedded systems, medical monitors and POS controllers.

“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, Adesto CTO. “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. EcoXiP is available in optimized densities from 32Mb to 128Mb.
