ST’s powertrain ICs cover a variety of functions (voltage regulators, drivers, sensor interfaces, motor drivers, etc.) which are the building blocks of a typical engine control unit (ECU) of the main applications (engine management systems, transmission control systems, alternator regulators, etc.).
Different levels of integration can be achieved in order to accomplish the best tradeoff among flexibility, cost, space and performance.
BCD and IGBT silicon technologies allowing the combination of digital, analog and power components are the key implementation enabler along with the large package portfolio with several pin-counts and power dissipation options.
