The Fourth Industrial Revolution – Industry 4.0 or Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) – is relentlessly pursuing higher efficiency and increased productivity in the manufacturing sector. An integral part of the global manufacturing infrastructure, industrial tools including additive manufacturing (3D printing) and new, efficient CNC machines as well as less energy-hungry textile and hand-held power tools are constantly being improved to enable innovative production methods.
Proven, reliable, efficient and with long-term availability, semiconductor solutions are key enablers to this quest. With our wide portfolio of cost-effective, energy-efficient and reliable solutions, ST helps engineers solve challenges when designing industrial tools of all sizes, cost and performance characteristics.
We provide an entire ecosystem of hardware and software evaluation and development tools as well as reference designs that can help developers reduce time to market and cut development costs.
