2.1 System limitations
2.1.1 Delay after an RCC peripheral clock enabling
Description
A delay between an RCC peripheral clock enable and the effective peripheral enabling
should be taken into account in order to manage the peripheral read/write from/to registers.
This delay depends on the peripheral mapping:
If the peripheral is mapped on AHB: the delay should be equal to 1 AHB clock cycle
after the clock enable bit is set in the hardware register.
For I/O peripheral, the delay should be equal to 1 AHB clock cycle after the clock
enable bit is set in the hardware register (only applicable to write accesses).
If the peripheral is mapped on APB: No delay is necessary (no limitation).
Workarounds
1. Enable the peripheral clock some time before the peripheral read/write register is
required.
2. For AHB peripheral (including I/O), insert a dummy read operation to the corresponding
register.

2.1.2 Additional current consumption in Standby mode
Description
When entering Standby mode, the EEPROM remains ON thus causing an extra power
consumption of ~500 µA.
Workaround
None.
2.1.3 Unexpected system reset when waking up from Stop mode with
regulator in low-power mode
Description
If the device returns to Run mode after waking up from Stop mode while the internal voltage
regulator is configured to switch to low-power mode in Stop mode (LPSDSR=1 in PWR_CR
register), an unexpected system reset may occur if the following conditions are met:
The internal regulator is set to Range 2 or Range 3 before entering Stop mode.
VDD power supply is below 2.7 V.
The probability that this issue occurs is very low since it may happen only for very
narrow supply voltage windows which vary from one device to another.
This reset is internal only and does not affect the NRST pin state and the flags in the
Control/status register (RCC_CSR).
Workaround
Two workarounds are possible:
Enter Stop mode with the internal voltage regulator set to main mode (LPSDSR=0 in
PWR_CR).
Set the internal voltage regulator to Range1 before entering Stop mode.
2.1.4 Timer2 and Timer21 alternate functions not available on PA8, PB6
and PA11
Description
The following alternate functions are missing:
TIM2_CH1 on PA8
TIM21_CH1 on PB6
TIM21_CH2 on PA11
Workaround
None.

2.1.5 SRAM size limited to 4 Kbytes
Description
SRAM is available only from address 0x2000 0000 to 0x2000 0FFF.
Workaround
None.
2.1.6 Flash memory wakeup issue when waking up from Stop or Sleep
with Flash in power-down mode
Description
When an external wakeup event (EXTI) occurs in a narrow time window around low-power
mode entry (Stop or Sleep mode with Flash memory in power-down state), the Flash
wakeup time may be increased. As a result, the first data read or instruction fetch from Flash
may be incorrect.
The probability that this issue occurs is very low since it may happen only during a
very narrow time window.
Workaround
Three workarounds are available:
Do not put the Flash memory module in power-down mode when entering Sleep or
Low-power sleep modes.
Before entering Stop mode by executing a WFI instruction from RAM, set the RUN_PD
bit in the FLASH_ACR register. After exiting from Stop mode, the Flash memory is
automatically powered ON and you can resume program execution from Flash
memory. After wakeup, clear the RUN_PD bit.
Before entering Stop mode by executing WFI instruction from RAM, set the RUN_PD
bit in the FLASH_ACR register and set the DS_EE_KOFF bit in PWR_CR register.
After resuming from STOP mode, the Flash memory stays in power-down mode.
Wake-up the Flash memory by clearing FLASH_ACR_RUN_PD bit and return to code
execution.
2.1.7 Schmitt trigger hysteresis disabled on PH0 and PH1 inputs
Description
When an I/O port is configured as an input, the Schmitt trigger input should be activated.
However, the Schmitt trigger hysteresis feature is deactivated on PH0 and PH1, thus
preventing them to filter noise during I/O switching.
Only LQFP48 package is impacted.
Workaround
None.

2.1.8 Electrical sensitivity characteristics
Description
The ESD Absolute maximum ratings are lower compared to some other STM32 devices:
Electrostatic discharge voltage human body model (VESD(HBM)) class is 1C instead of 2
and the maximum value is 1000 V instead of 2000 V.
Electrostatic discharge voltage charge device model (VESD(CDM)) class is C3 and the
maximum value is 250 V instead of 500 V.
Workaround
None.
2.1.9 I2C and USART cannot wake up the device from Stop mode
Description
When the microcontroller is in Stop mode with the regulator in low-power mode, an
unexpected system reset may occur if the I2C or the USART attempts to wake up the
device.
This limitation also impacts LPUART when the HSI16 is used as clock source instead of
LSE.
This reset is internal only and does not affect the NRST pin state and the flags in the
Control/status register (RCC_CSR).
The lower the VDD value, the more often this unpredictable behavior may occur.
Workaround
No workaround is available.
It is recommended to avoid using the USART and I2C wakeup from Stop mode features. To
disable them, keep WUPEN bit in I2C_CR1 and UESM bit in USARTx_CR1 at ‘0’.
Two solutions are then possible to perform I2C or USART communications:
Put the microcontroller in a mode different from Stop (or Standby mode) before
initiating communications.
Replace Stop mode with Stop mode plus regulator in main mode by keeping LPSDSR
bit of PWR_CR set to ‘0’.
2.1.10 LDM, STM, PUSH and POP not allowed in IOPORT bus
Description
The instructions Load Multiple (LM), Store Multiple (STM), PUSH and POP fail when the
address points to the IOPORT bus memory area (address range = 0x5XXX XXXX).
Workaround
None.

2.1.11 BOOT_MODE bits do not reflect the selected boot mode
Description
The BOOT_MODE[1:0] bits of the SYSCFG_CFGR1 register remain set to 0 while they
should reflect the boot mode selected by the boot pins.
Workaround
None.
2.2 ADC limitation
2.2.1 Overrun flag might not be set when converted data have not been read
before new data are written
Description
When converted data are read from ADC_DR register during the same APB cycle as data
from new conversion are written to this register, the previously written data or the new data
are lost, but the overrun flag (OVR) might not set to ‘1’.
Workaround
Read the converted data before the data from a new conversion are available, to avoid
overrun errors.
2.3 Comparator limitation
2.3.1 COMP1_CSR and COMP2_CSR lock bit reset by SYSCFGRST bit
in RCC_APB2RSTR register
Description
When the SYSCFGRST bit of RCC_APB2RSTR register is set, the COMP1_CSR and
COMP2_CSR register contents are reset even if COMP1LOCK and COMP2LOCK bits are
set in COMP1_CSR and the COMP2_CSR register, respectively.
Workaround
No workaround is available.
For security reasons, it is recommended to avoid using SYSCFGRST bit of
RCC_APB2RSTR when COMP1LOCK and/or COMP2LOCK bits are set.

2.3.2 Output of comparator 2 cannot be internally connected to input 1
of low-power timer
Description
The COMP2LPTIMIN1 bit (bit 13 of COMP2_CSR register) which internally connects
COMP2VALUE to the low-power timer (LPTIM) input 1 has no effect.
Workaround
Connect COMP2_OUT output to an external pin and configure LPTIM_IN1 on an external
pin, then connect both pins together externally.
2.4 RTC limitations
2.4.1 Spurious tamper detection when disabling the tamper channel
Description
If the tamper detection is configured for detection on falling edge event (TAMPFLT=00 and
TAMPxTRG=1) and if the tamper event detection is disabled when the tamper pin is at high
level, a false tamper event is detected.
Workaround
None
2.4.2 Detection of a tamper event occurring before enabling the tamper
detection is not supported in edge detection mode
Description
When the tamper detection is enabled in edge detection mode (TAMPFLT=00):
When TAMPxTRG=0 (rising edge detection): if the tamper input is already high before
enabling the tamper detection, the tamper event may or may not be detected when
enabling the tamper detection. The probability to detect it increases with the APB
frequency.
When TAMPxTRG=1 (falling edge detection): if the tamper input is already low before
enabling the tamper detection, the tamper event is not detected when enabling the
tamper detection.
Workaround
The I/O state should be checked by software in the GPIO registers, just after enabling the
tamper detection and before writing sensitive values in the backup registers, in order to
ensure that no active edge occurred before enabling the tamper event detection.

2.5 I2C peripheral limitations
2.5.1 Wrong behaviors in Stop mode when waking up from Stop mode is
disabled in I2C peripheral
Description
When wakeup from Stop mode is disabled in the I2C interface (WUPEN = 0) and the
microcontroller enters Stop mode while a transfer is ongoing on the bus, some wrong
behavior may happen:
1. The BUSY flag can be wrongly set when the microcontroller exits Stop mode. This
prevents from initiating a transfer in master mode, as the START condition cannot be
sent when BUSY is set.
2. If clock stretching is enabled (NOSTRETCH = 0), the I2C clock SCL may be kept low by
the I2C as long as the microcontroller remains in Stop mode. This limitation may occur
when Stop mode is entered during the address phase of a I2C bus transfer while
SCL = 0. Therefore the transfer may be stalled as long as the microcontroller is in Stop
mode. The probability that this issue occurs depends also on the timings configuration,
the peripheral clock frequency and the I2C bus frequency.
These behaviors can occur in Slave mode and in Master mode in a multi-master topology.
Workaround
Disable the I2C interface (PE=0) before entering Stop mode and enable it again in Run
mode.
2.5.2 Wrong data sampling when data set-up time (tSU;DAT) is smaller than
one I2CCLK period
Description
The I2C bus specification and user manual specifies a minimum data set-up time (tSU;DAT)
at:
250 ns in Standard-mode,
100 ns in Fast-mode,
50 ns in Fast-mode Plus.
The I2C SDA line is not correctly sampled when tSU;DAT is smaller than one I2CCLK (I2C
clock) period: the previous SDA value is sampled instead of the current one. This can result
in a wrong slave address reception, a wrong received data byte, or a wrong received
acknowledge bit.
Workaround
Increase the I2CCLK frequency to get I2CCLK period smaller than the transmitter minimum
data set-up time. Or, if it is possible, increase the transmitter minimum data set-up time.

2.6 SPI peripheral limitations
2.6.1 BSY bit may stay high at the end of a SPI data transfer in slave mode
Description
In slave mode, BSY bit is not reliable to handle the end of data frame transaction due to
some bad synchronization between the CPU clock and external SCK clock provided by
master. Sporadically, the BSY bit is not cleared at the end of a data frame transfer. As a
consequence, it is not recommended to rely on BSY bit before entering low-power mode or
modifying the SPI configuration (e.g. direction of the bidirectional mode).
Workaround
When the SPI interface is in receive mode, the end of a transaction with the master can
be detected by the corresponding RXNE event when this flag is set after the last bit of
that transaction is sampled and the received data are stored.
When the following sequence is used, the synchronization issue does not occur. The
BSY bit works correctly and can be used to recognize the end of any transmission
transaction (including when RXNE is not raised in bidirectional mode):
a) Write the last data into data register.
b) Poll TXE flag till it becomes high to make sure the data transfer has started.
c) Disable the SPI interface by clearing SPE bit while the last data transfer is on
going.
d) Poll the BSY bit till it becomes low.
Note: The second workaround can be used only when the CPU is fast enough to disable the SPI
interface after a TXE event is detected while the data frame transfer is ongoing. It cannot be
implemented when the ratio between CPU and SPI clock is low and the data frame is
particularly short. At this specific case, the timeout can be measured from the TXE event
instead by calculating a fixed number of CPU clock cycles corresponding to the time
necessary to complete the data frame transaction.
2.6.2 Last data bit or CRC calculation may be corrupted for the data received
in master mode depending on the feedback communication
clock timing with respect to the APB clock
Description
When the SPI interface is configured in master mode, the last transacted bit of the received
data may be corrupted if the delay of the internal feedback clock, which is derived from SCK
pin, is higher than the APB clock period. In this case, the last bit value is strobed too late into
the shift register while its content has already been either copied to the data register or
compared to the pattern calculated internally.
When data corruption occurs, the bit position in the data register contains the value of the
last bit received during the previous data transfer or the CRC error flag (CRCERR) is
asserted in spite of the fact that all data have been correctly received.
This limitation may be observed only when the device is configured in SPI is master (full-
duplex or receiver mode).

STM32L031x4/6 STM32L031x4/6 silicon limitations
17
The main factors which can increase the above delay, and the risk that this issue occurs,
are:
High external SPI clock capacitive load
Low SCK I/O output speed
Low VDD level
Extreme temperature
Note: SPI communication speed has no impact.
Workaround
Set the I/O pad configuration to achieve a faster I/O output speed on SCK pin, regardless
the SPI speed. Max SCK line capacitance must be limited below 30pF.
2.6.3 Limited SPI frequency when peripheral is configured in Master
reception or in Slave transmission mode and VDD is below 2.7 V
Description
When the SPI is configured in Master reception or in Slave transmission mode, the
maximum SPI frequency should be 16 MHz in Range1 (VDD ranging from 1,71 to 3,6 V).
However a timing issue limits the maximum transaction reachable frequency when VDD is
below 2.7 V.
Workaround
None.
2.7 USART limitations
2.7.1 Start bit detected too soon when sampling for NACK signal
from the smartcard
Description
According to ISO/IEC 7816-3 standard, when a character parity error is incorrect, the
smartcard receiver shall transmit a NACK error signal 10.5 ± 0.2 ETUs after the character
START bit falling edge. In this case, the USART transmitter should be able to detect
correctly the NACK signal by sampling at 11 ± 0.2 ETUs after the character START bit falling
edge.
In Smartcard mode, the USART peripheral does not respect the 11 ± 0.2 ETU timing. As a
result, when the NACK falling edge occurs 10.68 ETUs or later, the USART may
misinterpret this transition as a START bit even if the NACK is correctly detected.

After the end of transmission of a data (D1), the Transmission Complete (TC) flag will not be
set if the following conditions are met:
CTS hardware flow control is enabled.
D1 is being transmitted.
A break transfer is requested before the end of D1 transfer.
nCTS is de-asserted before the end of D1 data transfer.
Workaround
If the application needs to detect the end of a data transfer, the break request should be
issued after checking that the TC flag is set.
2.7.3 nRTS is active while RE or UE = 0
Description
The nRTS line is driven low as soon as the RTSE bit is set and even if the USART is
disabled (UE = 0) or if the receiver is disabled (RE=0) i.e. not ready to receive data.
Workaround
Configure the I/O used for nRTS as an alternate function after setting the UE and RE bits.
