Engine Management, Gasoline
Governmental regulations and energy concerns are driving the automotive industry to develop very high performing gasoline-engine control systems. These improvements enhance electronic applications in the fields of throttle control, gasoline direct injection and variable valve timing, just to mention a few. ST offers a strong portfolio of advanced technologies (BCD for combining precision analog, power, digital and non-volatile memory functions; embedded Flash 16/32-bit microcontrollers for real-time control), coupled with an extensive standard product offering to meet market demands. An example of this enhanced EMS can be found in the following block diagram.
