Car body and convenience modules are becoming more complex and are used in greater number to improve the comfort and safety of drivers and passengers. They are used in some of the most complex electronic systems found in a modern vehicle:
They all need to provide the highest possible energy efficiency to enhance vehicle fuel economy.
This range of modules and sub-systems are mounted all around a vehicle and need to be connected to electronic control units (ECU) that are widespread throughout the car using basic CAN and LIN communication interfaces to advanced Ethernet gateways.
With our uniquely broad portfolio of semiconductor fabrication technologies including mixed-signal power BCD and ST’s proprietary VIPower™, CMOS, and power discrete, ST provides a complete offer of products and solutions for car body and convenience applications
