Even car seating cannot escape innovation: Extremely complex mechanical and electronic systems are fitted in Premium cars to ensure driver and passenger comfort.

Seat control offers the  possibility to fine tune a large number of position settings – backrest angle, seat height or width, to mention a few – or the ability to control seating temperature using dedicated cooling/heating devices. All the seat adjustments can be stored and retrieved at will.

The challenge is make sure that all the loads – including a range of electric motors – used to finely tune seat morphology are efficiently and reliably driven and controlled.

Our range of low-ohmic, fully protected high-side drivers, available in a variety of combinations including H-bridges arrangement for motors, SPC5 32-bit automotive-grade microcontrollers, power management ICs and system basis chips (SBC) can help design effective solutions for seat control.

    • Build your ST evaluation High Side Driver Automotive system: thanks to the ST's SPC5-EV-ADIS adapter you can combine the SPC560B-DIS Discovery board along with VIPower easy boards addressing several automotive applications such as front & rear car lighting, automotive resistive, inductive and capacitive loads, automotive smart power distribution, glow plug, heating systems, relay replacement and high power resistive and inductive actuators.

      A broad range of Easy Boards EV-VNx7xxx from 3mΩ to 140mΩ are available on ST.COM. Please find here below a complete list where to select the best boards fitting your application.
