A glow plug is a pencil-shaped piece of metal with a heating element at the tip. Despite its simple design and electronic content, it plays a fundamental role in diesel injection systems by igniting the fuel even when the engine is insufficiently hot for normal operation, thus reducing the cranking time to start the engine.

ST has a range of solutions based on our proprietary VIPower™ silicon technology that enable compact and robust glow plug control unit design.
