Electronic stability control (ESC)

Electronic stability control (ESC) systems are designed to detect and reduce loss of traction to prevent skidding. By applying the brakes to the vehicle's wheels individually, ESC systems counter over- and under-steering to help ensure the comfort and safety of drivers and passengers. This proven technology is increasingly being included as a standard feature in many vehicles.

Solutions for BLDC motors

ST's solutions for ESC include a full range of three-phase gate drivers and Power MOSFETs for driving BLDC motors, including 48 V domains. Dedicated power management ICs, and CAN transceivers as well as a wide range of flexible and innovative application-specific standard products (ASSP),  covering all possible system partitions. SPC5 32-bit automotive microcontrollers provide the overall system control.
