Semiconductor supplier STMicroelectronics (ST) will exhibit and present innovative technology at Electronica 2022 (November 15-18) in Munich, Germany. ST’s focus is on four broad areas of high interest for customers: technologies for smarter mobility; for industrial internet of things (IIoT) and factory automation; for energy management and power efficiency; and for developing and securing artificial intelligence (AI)-based connected systems. Over 35 demos will show technology already deployed in the field with existing customer and partner systems and devices as well as next-generation, innovative solutions. In addition to the activities on the floor of the show, ST is broadcasting live on three days from the event at Electronica.
Innovation for smarter mobility
ST develops car electrification solutions to help carmakers build longer range and more affordable electric vehicles (EVs). It also creates advanced digitalization systems to ensure new levels of performance and safety.
An EV muscle car will show off the full suite of battery-management system (BMS) technologies as well as a BMS reference design to emphasize the ease of integration of these high-performance capabilities into cost-effective systems. Multiple automotive power demos highlight ST’s expertise in foundational energy-related technologies that make EVs go further and more efficiently. Another demo highlights how ST’s innovative smart fuses deliver reliable and programmable protection.
ST will also display virtualization and its ability to insulate and run multiple applications on its next-generation Stellar SR6 MCUs for software-defined vehicles. Other demos include ST’s newest hybrid imaging technology for in-cabin monitoring, ideal for occupant monitoring and safety systems.
As part of the Electronica conferences and Forums, ST will deliver presentations on silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) for automotive power applications, as well as on the challenges of securing software-defined vehicles.
ST’s live digital event on smart mobility is scheduled for November 15 at 11 AM CET.
Innovation for the IIoT and factory automation
ST develops technology enabling industrial applications to overcome the challenges of digitalization and secure connectivity. The company is also providing industry-leading tools to support embedded development of applications using AI/machine learning approaches. Building on its industry-leading STM32 microcontroller family and ecosystem, ST’s demos for IIoT and factory automation include a unique ST-developed industrial-sensor evaluation kit for temperature- and vibration-based condition monitoring. Containing an ultra-low-power wireless radio module and a secure element for embedded authentication and secure data management, the kit supports rapid machine-learning development. For this, it also hosts ultra-low power and inertial module (accelerometer and gyroscope) sensors that integrate ST’s machine-learning core running on the sensors.
The ST booth will also showcase customer and partner systems and devices leveraging ST technology in IIoT with examples such as an asset tracker and a connected cylinder, and in factory automation with an industrial equipment digital-twin example. Moreover, ST will shine a spotlight on its wireless STM32-based approach to the industry’s newly launched Matter home-automation/connectivity standard.
As part of the Electronica conferences and Forums, ST will deliver presentations on connectivity (Sub-1 Ghz, UWB, multi-protocol), security and low-power applications.
