As equipment failures can put human lives at risk and damage our ecosystem on a larger scale, ensuring system safety is an essential part of industrial systems, for instance in automated manufacturing, transportation, and the oil and gas industry. Industrial safety is defined by international standards, such as the IEC 61508, which provide tools and safety functions to systematically assess risks and prevent danger.

Hardware & software solutions for Industrial Safety

To facilitate and accelerate the development and certification process of safety-critical services and functions, ST offers a wide range of hardware and software solutions. This includes a comprehensive set of certified software libraries and documentation to help manufacturers design products that meet functional safety standards. ST's X-CUBE-STL software package for STM32 MCUs and MPUs supports the design of IEC 61508-certified solutions, reaching Safety Integrity Level (SIL2/SIL3).

st partner program

Several ST Authorized Partners are experts in functional safety and have expanded their know-how to STM8 and STM32 with software, tools, trainings and other services. Their solutions help designers at any stage of their project: from the mapping of safety requirements to the design and validation of hardware and software, certification phase included.

Highlights on smart power products for safe automation:

  • Intelligent Power Switches including galvanic isolated ICs for driving actuators
  • Current Limited Terminations to implement efficient and supply-free digital inputs for smart sensors
  • DC/DC converters providing power supply for various circuits in safe applications

Our ICs are built according to state-of-the-art industrial requirements for semiconductor design and manufacturing process. We allow our customers to design and develop safe applications in a short time-to-market thanks to advanced quality-management processes, product reliability, technical performance and diagnostic features.

Our selected products for safe automation are certified by authorities like TÜV, UL and VDE.
