Vacuum cleaner technology has evolved such that the vacuums of today have greater suction power than their predecessors, while being smaller, lighter and quieter. They are also more energy efficient, a key factor for battery-powered models in particular.
To aid in the design of efficient motor control solutions for the motors used in modern vacuum cleaners (e.g. 3-phase brushless, universal, etc.), ST offers a wide range of STM32 microcontrollers, power MOSFETs, IGBTs and intelligent power modules (IPMs), triacs and AC switches together with high-voltage gate drivers, as well as a complete set of hardware and software evaluation and development tools.
In addition, we have a full range of AC-DC and DC-DC power conversion solutions and environmental and motion sensors that are ideal for the design of highly efficient, smarter vacuum cleaners.
