Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning systems are placing increasingly tough requirements on their electronic control systems for increased energy efficiency, higher safety levels and improved reliability of the overall system. As a result increasingly complex electronics are being used to control what are often referred to as “inverter–drives” to dramatically increase energy efficiency while also eliminating the maintenance requirements of brushed motors.

Using ST’s controllers and power switches, the motor drive delivers optimal torque-versus-speed operation with an improved power factor and optimized duty-cycle.

Key enabling products in these applications include:-

  • 8 and 32-bit Microcontrollers
  • Power-line modem ICs
  • Motor control ICs
  • Intelligent Power Switches
  • IGBTs
  • Power MOSFETs
  • AC Switches
  • Ultrafast and Schottky recitifiers
  • Protection Devices
  • Power MOSFETs
  • MEMS sensors
  • High-Voltage Converters for power supplies
