Internal combustion engines (ICE) – in all their various commercial implementations including gasoline, liquid petroleum gas (LPG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) just to name few – while still mainstream in cars and commercial vehicles are undergoing a continuous quest for greater fuel efficiency and ever lower emissions as dictated by increasingly stringent regulations. The way to achieve this is through more sophisticated means to control the various phases of the engine cycles where a large array of physical variables are controlled and optimized in real time. Moreover, the driving experience can be enhanced also through sophisticated solutions like automated manual transmissions (AMT)
ST offers a set of solutions for a broad range of engine management systems, from motorbikes to multi-cylinder gasoline direct injection and common-rail diesel engines, as well as for transmission control and actuation.
Highly integrated and cost-effective, our portfolio of powertrain solutions can help design even the most advanced systems for the most sophisticated vehicles with our SPC5 32-bit automotive microcontrollers, a very broad selection of low/high-side and H-bridge Smart Power Devices – for driving solenoids and motors – as well as discrete Power MOSFETs and IGBTs.
