ST has a large portfolio of power amplifiers and multifunctional voltage regulators for automotive systems, used in head units, external amplifiers and infotainment solutions.
ST's large portfolio of automotive infotainment voltage regulators integrate functions such as:
- I²C bus control
- Low voltage warning
- Short circuit protection
- Overvoltage shutdown
- High-side driver
ST power management ICs provide, in a single chip, all the required power supplies, both linear and switching, for car audio systems.
Different products come with or without I²C and additional functions, such as diagnostics facilities, as well as the traditional battery management. The advanced, mixed IC technologies used make these ICs compliant with the automotive environment and its rigorous requirements in terms of robustness, protection and power consumption.
