An AC Drive is a frequency converter designed to control the speed and torque of an electric motor – typically 3-phase AC induction or 3-phase BLDC motors – using specifically developed control methods such as variable-frequency drive (VFD) or field-oriented control (FOC).

Our offer includes an extensive range of 8-bit STM8 and 32-bit STM32 microcontrollers, a wide range of power discretes including IGBTs and power MOSFETs, including silicon-carbide (SiC) diodes for higher power efficiency, as well as integrated power modules (IPM) to help build scalable, high-efficiency power stages with power ranging from a few watts up to tens of kilowatts.

Additionally, ST provides an extensive portfolio of high-performance operational amplifiers and comparators, switching and linear regulators and MEMS inertial and environmental sensors – to enable predictive maintenance – and a comprehensive range of software and hardware evaluation tools to help reduce development time and cost.
