Keywords:microcontrollers  electronic ballast  battery charger  ST7 

This document by STMicroelectronics is a collection of application notes that offers a basic understanding of microcontrollers and their potential usage in different applications. Some of the applications are electronic ballast, battery charger, graphical tools, home appliance and motors. The document also provides tutorials on system optimisation such as cost reduction, design improvements and peripheral operations using microcontrollers.

This document is applicable to ST7, STR7, ST9 and ST10 families of microcontrollers. It offers application examples and product evaluation for each family, as well as product migration and optimisation techniques. It also discusses the programming and tools appropriate for these parts.

For instance, this document offers a paper that gives a brief summary of how the microcontroller operates and the most common types of functions it can perform as they relate to being used in an electronic ballast. Next, ideas of how to implement the most common functions and their associated advantages/weaknesses are be examined. Finally, a brief summary of things that should be examined closely are presented to help assure a good start to a basic microcontrolled ballast design.
