ST’s SPC5 32-bit microcontrollers are designed using industry’s standard Power Architecture® and ST’s proprietary embedded Flash technology.

They combine a scalable range of single, dual and multi-core solutions (Power Architecture e200z0 to e200z4) with innovative peripheral sets that are optimized for car applications, such as engine management, chassis, safety, body control, Cyber Security, advanced driver assistance, and for all applications requiring long-term reliability.

  • Single- to multi-core architectures
  • Technology range from 90 nm down to 40 nm
  • Full performance up to 150 °C
  • 15 years product longevity
  • High-end peripherals set, including ISO CAN FD
  • Internal manufacturing (front-end and back-end) for security of supply
  • Safety compliance to standards such as ISO 26262 (up to ASIL-D)
  • Data security compliance to standards including SHE (Secure Hardware Extension) and EVITA (e-safety vehicle intrusion protected applications)
  • Complete development environment (from free-of-charge IDE, code compiler and low-cost debugger solution up to high-end solutions supporting AUTOSAR designs).

SPC5-STUDIO is a free tools for develop on the SPC5 families

Cyber Security

For match the requirements of the Cyber Security level 4 is necessary the HSM peripheral, for example see the SPC584B linee (Chorus family) plus a Secure Element (see the ST33 family) on the Internet connection.
The ST33 guarantees protections from the SW side attack and the HW physical attack.
I remember also that to use the security you must also have a specific SW that either develops the customer or buys it from a third party or from ST.
The security SW version of STM is the most economical because STM sells it in association with the micro, while for SW house it is their core product. For this SW, please contact directly STM.

A basic kit for test/development on SPC5 is:
SPC5-Studio (IDE and Compiler) + SPC5-UDESTK (Emulator) + SPC5x-Discovery (EvaBoard)
