Consumers have ever increasing expectations for their household appliances in terms of reliability, energy and water efficiency, noise generation and of course functionality.
Safety and energy regulations as well as reliability expectations are increasingly driving the replacement of electro-mechanical relays, switches and sensors by semiconductors. ST’s deep knowledge of motor control subsystems and range of power switching components enable us to propose complete solutions for these applications.
The connected Smart appliance and the free-roaming “robot” are rapidly becoming common-place.
Key enabling products in these applications include:-
- 8 and 32-bit Microcontrollers
- AC Switches
- Power MOSFETs
- Ultrafast and Schottky rectifiers
- Protection Devices
- MEMS motion and pressure sensors
- High voltage converters for power supplies
- Power-line modem ICs
- Intelligent Power Switches
- Motor Control ICs
