Join our webinar to find out more about optimizing your Automation Digital I/O applications with ST's latest smart power ICs.

Safety is a critical matter in today's industries, and our new integrated Digital Inputs and Intelligent Power Switches deliver safe digital I/Os with SIL compliance.

Another challenge is efficient driving of various industrial loads with differing electrical characteristics. ST's new family of Intelligent Power Switches with ultra-low ON resistance allows reliable driving of any industrial load, along with the possibility to actively control inrush currents. We will also introduce our galvanic isolated drivers, which provide additional levels of protection and operating robustness in harsh and noisy environments.
