Cars and vehicles contain some of the most complex electronic systems used by most of us daily. Car body and convenience applications are constantly evolving to increase the comfort of drivers and passengers.
Data buses and intelligent modules are located throughout the car body to control the various loads, lamps, motors, solenoids in applications such as Door zone.
ST's broad range of mixed analog digital technologies with power driving capability, and system-on-chip (SoC) devices allow innovative and integrated solutions to the highly automated systems found in cars.
The actuator drivers designed by ST for automotive door zone applications are characterized by a scalable actuator driving concept, compatible with package and software, to satisfy the multiplicity of door electronics variants today. The drivers support all regular door zone loads such as door lock motors, mirror folder and leveling, defroster, and several lighting functions from LEDs to incandescent bulbs.
