Diesel Glow Plug Control : High End
The sophistication of today’s modern engine management systems are driven by strict governmental regulations mandating increased fuel economy and engine performance whilst lowering harmful emissions. This has driven the industry to develop improvements in diesel direct injection engine control systems and glow-plug control. ST, with a strong portfolio of advanced technologies (BCD for combining precision analog, power, digital and non-volatile memory functions; VIPower for driving high current loads; Embedded FLASH 8/16/32-bit Microcontrollers for real-time control) coupled with extensive standard product offering, is ready to meet the changing market demands. A sampling of ST products that are applicable to diesel glow plug control systems can be found in the following block diagram.
