Smartphones, tablets and eReaders combine of many of the most advanced electronics technologies available in the industry today into personal devices that have become ubiquitous around the global. These devices create many challenges for designers, as they need to combine sensors, cameras, processing, communications, batteries, displays, speakers, microphones, fingerprint sensors and other user interface technologies into a powerful, reliable, secure and ultra-efficient battery powered device.
ST provides a range of products to help designers meet these challenges and enable the design of leading-edge mobile devices. We enhance the user experience with products such as motion and environmental sensors, MEMS microphones, Time-of-Flight solutions, image and optical sensors, audio headphone and speaker amplifiers, and touch-sensor controllers with multi-touch capabilities. We protect the device with integrated passive device technology, ESD protection and EMI filtering products and a range of analog products. We secure devices with secure element and secure Near Field Communication (NFC) solutions. And we power devices with high-efficiency power and energy management products optimized for battery powered devices, including touchscreen power management, and wireless charging solutions. We also improve connectivity with our RF product offer, which includes smart antenna tuning and RFSOI FEM solutions.
