ST is a world-class supplier of IC smart power solutions for all the Chassis and Safety applications, ranging from passive safety, braking, vehicle dynamics and steering systems. Type of devices in ST portfolio are analog and mixed-signal ICs, integrating different functions such as supply modules, drivers for loads and actuators, diagnostic functions, system monitoring and communication interfaces.
Leading-edge technological processes, specifically developed to fit these applications, and long-lasting relationships with all main Chassis and Safety system suppliers allow ST to be an undisputed world-renowned supplier. The offered portfolio exploits ST total commitment towards automotive quality and aligns to the ISO-26262 standard for functional safety.
ST solutions range from open market developments available to all the customers to full custom developments with dedicated IP implementations. The products come with full application support, both during the development phases and in production, and a set of deliverables to help the system designers evaluate and use the parts.
ST’s complete airbag electronics solution
Airbag system producers can now satisfy the complete system functional requirements by teaming:
* a choice of three airbag system ICs, the L9678P, L9679P, and L9680 meeting the demands of applications ranging from entry or mid-level to high-end vehicles with multiple airbag firing loops. These devices, which integrate system power management, sensor interfaces, switch interfaces, and arming safety logic, are responsible for decoding the sensor data and forwarding results to the microcontroller.
* the new AIS1120SX or AIS2120SX central crash sensors with peripheral accelerometers like ST’s AIS1200PS installed on structures such as bumpers and door pillars.
* the ST’s SPC5 32-bit Power Architecture® MCUs, including Safety Lines devices.
SPC56 P-Line and SPC56 L-Line are dedicated to the specific needs of chassis and safety applications, with specific focus on functional safety up to turnkey SIL3/ASILD solution based on HW measures. The unique modularity and scalability of the architecture provides compatible devices covering the wide range of airbag solutions.
