EVALSTPM34, EVALSTPM33, EVALSTPM32 evaluation board
Introduction
This user manual describes the EVALSTPM34, EVALSTPM33, EVALSTPM32 evaluation board.
The STPM3x is an ASSP family of mixed signals designed for high accuracy measurement of power
and energy in power line systems using the Rogowski coil, current transformer or shunt current sensors.
According to p/n, the device has up to two voltages and two current channels, for energy measurement
in dual-phase and single-phase (with or without neutral current monitoring) electricity metering systems.
The STPM3x devices provide instantaneous voltage and current waveforms and calculate voltage and
current RMS values, active, reactive and apparent powers and energies for each channel. Moreover,
they embed a full set of calibration and compensation parameters which allow the meter to fit tight
accuracy standards (EN 50470-x, IEC 62053-2x, ANSI12.2x for AC watt meters). All calculated data, as
well as configuration parameters, are stored in internal 32-bit registers accessible through SPI or UART
peripheral. Three boards are available for evaluation purpose:


Power supply
The board does not contain a power supply. VCC = 3.3 V DC supply should be provided
externally, by J7 connector. If the board is interfaced to PC by the STEVAL-IPE023V1
isolated dongle, it provides the board with supply. Since UART section is isolated, to use
either RS232 or J2 UART connectors, a different isolated 3.3 V supply must be provided
through J2 connector.
2.1.3
Enable and reset
The STPM3x enable pin should be shorted to VCC by keeping J4 jumper in EN position. To
reset the device, this jumper has to be in OFF position (GND).

To communicate with the device using the STEVAL-IPE023V1 isolated USB dongle, the
STPM3x SPI peripheral has to be selected. All SWC1 switches have to be in OFF position
before the device powers up. SPI pins are available in J6 connector for 10-pin flat cable
interfacing either to the STEVAL-IPE023V1 or to an external MCU.

UART connection
UART peripheral also communicates to the device. In this case, all SWC1 switches should
be in ON position when the device powers up. RS232 port is isolated from the board
through Si8621 transceiver to safely connect the board to PC; in this case, J3 jumper has
to be connected. UART isolated pins are also available on J2 connector for MCU
connection; in this case J3 jumper has to be disconnected. If UART connection is used, a
separate 3.3 VDC has to be provided to UART section.

LED
Two LEDs are connected to programmable LED pins of the device.
2.1.9
Clock
Clocking is provided to the board through 16 MHz quartz. 1 MOhm resistor and 15 pF
capacitors are used to filter noise.
2.1.10
Voltage reference
The STPM34 and STPM33 devices embed two internal independent voltage references.
J11 jumper shorts VREF, or it can be used to connect the external precision voltage
reference. The external reference should be connected between the desired V REF and
GND, if a single reference has to be used for both channels, VREF1 and VREF2 should be
shorted by J11.
2.2
Connection to the line
The board can be connected to line voltage and current in several ways, as shown in below
pictures.
Please note that, in boards using shunt, the shunt is at the same potential of voltage
neutral faston and therefore it is at the same potential of the board GND. When isolated
power sources are used or phantom loads, this is not important. In case of connection to
the mains, this has to be taken into account since, according to the wire connected to the
shunt, the board GND may be either at the 0 or 230 V potential.

The device basic configuration
During the startup, all internal device parameters are in the default value. For the
EVALSTPM34 board, primary channel gain GAIN[1:0] has to be changed to value 0
(current gain = x2), a correct energy measurement is, in this manner, assured. All other
parameters can be changed according to the needs (board calibration, phase-shift
compensation, desired output on the programmable pin). For further information on the
device configuration, please refer to the STPM3x datasheet.
