ABS and Electronic Stability Control
Today ABS is serious equipment for a large majority of vehicles on the market and it is one of the most necessary safety functions available in automotive systems. Electronic stability control (ESC) is rapidly following the same path, imposing itself as an important function with its effectiveness against skidding, thus significantly enhancing the safety of passengers inside the vehicle. ST is able to offer a wide range of flexible and innovative ASSP products, fully covering any possible system partitioning. The combination of innovation and complexity of ST’s BCD (bipolar, CMOS, and DMOS) technology along with a strong competence from 15 years experience of close co-operation with the largest OEM’s, makes ST a world leader in braking system ICs.
