In line with the environmental revolution, electric motor control is moving very quickly in the direction of higher efficiency for motors and drives. Moreover, an increased level of integration at the lowest cost is required to support market penetration of new technologies, as well as increased safety and reliability. Committed to electric motor control for more than 20 years, ST was among the first to recognize these trends.

ST is riding the winds of change with innovations in integrated intelligent power modules and systems-in-package, monolithic motor drivers, fast and efficient power switches, voltage-transient protected Triacs, and powerful and secure microcontrollers. Whichever motor technology you use, from traditional and rugged to the most modern and efficient, ST is able to supply the right electronic devices and a complete ecosystem with a range of evaluation boards, reference designs, firmware and development tools to simplify and accelerate design cycles.
