Robot vacuum cleaners are amazing pieces of technology. These cordless, battery-operated devices can complete their mission autonomously by moving along the floor, detecting obstacles and surface variations, and returning to the charging station to park or recharge. Not only must they provide powerful suction quietly and efficiently, they need to be equipped with various sensors and enough computational power to handle complex algorithms.

ST offers ideal motor control solutions for the various types of motors required to move wheels, brushes and generate suction in robot vacuums, with a wide range of STM32 microcontrollers, power MOSFETs, IGBTs, intelligent power modules (IPMs), triacs and AC switches together with high-voltage gate drivers and integrated motor drivers, as well as a complete set of hardware and software evaluation and development tools.

We also have an array of AC-DC and DC-DC power conversion and battery charging solutions, and a full portfolio of environmental, motion and proximity sensors to aid in the design of smarter robot vacuum cleaner.
