Today cars are more and more equiped to minimize the occurrence and consequences of accidents improving driving experience and safety. Active and passive safety systems have led to a dramatic increase of electronics sophistication, compliant with the highest safety standard (ISO 26262), in applications like:

  • airbag systems
  • adaptive cruise control
  • blind-spot monitoring
  • lane-departure warning
  • night vision
  • lane-keeping assist
  • collision warning systems with automatic steering and braking intervention

STMicroelectronics has developed dedicated devices to facilitate the design of such systems and the achievement of the required functional safety level certification (Automotive Safety Integrity Level from ASIL-A to ASIL-D), including:

  • 32-bit Automotive Microcontrollers based on Power cores
  • Standard Low-side, High-side and Bridge Smart Power Devices for driving solenoids, DC motors and stepper motors
  • Dedicated ICs for actuator driving
  • One of the industry’s broadest ranges of Power MOSFETs
  • Automotive Ultrafast and Schottky rectifiers
  • Automotive EEPROM memories
  • Automotive Protection devices
  • Automotive Voltage Regulators and Power Management system ICs
  • MEMs accelerometers and gyroscope
