Building Technology

An increasing number of electronic systems and subsystems are being included in buildings both during the construction and post-construction. Traditionally electronics have been used to control heating ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC),  more recently the addition of wired and wireless communication within and between buildings and their owners or occupiers has opened up the field of building control and automation, sometimes referred to as domotics to control lights, shutters, gates, doors, appliances. Security and surveillance systems increasingly leverage communication beyond the sensor to panel communication to enable remote surveillance capabilities.

Key enabling products in these applications include:-

  • 8 and 32-bit Microcontrollers
  • Ultra-low power microcontrollers
  • RF Microcontrollers
  • Zigbee and other RF communication ICs
  • Power-line modem ICs
  • Motor control ICs
  • Lighting and LED driving ICs
  • RF-ID ICs
  • Intelligent Power Switches
  • AC Switches
  • Protection Devices
  • Power MOSFETs
  • MEMS sensors
