Active and passive safety systems that reduce the risk of accidents, as well as their consequences, are becoming more sophisticated with an increasing electronic component count. Active safety applications such as electric power steering, electric parking brakes, active suspension, anti-lock braking systems (ABS) increasing rely on sensors, brushed and brushless motors and microcontrollers to improve performance and reliability. Passive applications like seat-belt tensioners and airbags also benefit from the latest technology.

ST offers a range of both standard and dedicated devices to enable all these chassis and safety applications. These include standard low-side, high-side, bridge and pre-drivers, Smart Power devices for driving solenoids, brushed, brushless and stepper motors; dedicated ICs for actuator driving and one of the industry’s broadest ranges of Power MOSFETs. We also supply System Basis Chips (SBC) for fully integrated smart-power solutions, MEMS accelerometers and gyroscopes, and powerful 32-bit automotive microcontrollers to provide reliable control.
