In today's world, where manufacturing schedules and resources are often changed on the fly, it is important to ensure optimal planning and flexibility. To help reduce flow times and increase responsiveness, each machine inside a factory, as well as all its sensors and actuators, must be connected in real time to the factory process control and even to the larger supply chain and the cloud.

Real-time communication down to the lowest level of sensors and actuators is then a key enabler of the Industry 4.0 concept.

ST offers a broad range of interface ICs enabling wired connectivity for the most widely adopted standards – including CAN, RS-232, and RS-485 – and fieldbuses including IO-Link - Master and Device. We also provide wireless connectivity solutions for Bluetooth, Sub-GHz, LoRa, NFC, RFID as well as STM32 32-bit microcontrollers providing software support and all the necessary peripherals – including UART, CAN and Ethernet.
