- Showing the broad range of industrial product and solution demonstrations and partner systems that meet key technical challenges facing industrial customers
- Product and solutions demonstrations address both traditional and cutting-edge technologies for the automotive industry
STMicroelectronics a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications demonstrates its world-class products and solutions aimed at making industrial and automotive applications smarter and more efficient at Electronica 2018 in Munich.
Many of the product and system demonstrations shown at Electronica were based on customer examples showcasing the ongoing technology transformations across industrial and automotive applications: 3D printers, high-power motors, machine condition monitoring equipment, a test bench using Artificial Intelligence to identify defects on a railway, asset trackers, 48V automotive subsystems, 77 GHz radar, secure and tamper resistant telematics, software display audio plus many automotive subsystem modules including LED lighting plus integrated hardware/software solutions for both industrial and automotive applications – supported by a broad set of evaluation and development kits.
Making Industrial Applications Smarter
Smart industry initiatives are driving machines, factories and workplaces to become more connected, intelligent, and aware of more efficiency, reliability, and security. Given the diversity and breadth of the market, there is no one-size-fits-all for demanding industrial applications. ST has the key technology building blocks and expertise required to help its customers overcome their technical challenges with leading-edge products or complete system solutions. Much of this capability will be on display at Electronica.
In the ST Smart Factory area, the company features a smart factory control-center demonstration, as well as technologies for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance through vibration monitoring using AI-enhanced technologies running on STM32 microcontrollers, as well as ultrasound inspection, a broad set of motor control, power and energy management, and industrial sensors demonstrations, and non-destructive testing.
ST demonstrated a range of connectivity and security technologies including secure cloud connectivity for edge computing, asset tracking, next-generation IoT connectivity, Bluetooth low energy-Mesh, and NFC.
Making Automotive Applications Smarter
Carmakers and their technology suppliers are reshaping mobility platforms and vehicles with the development of assisted and autonomous driving and the shift to more efficient and higher performing hybrid and electric power technologies. A leading provider of technology and solutions for the automotive industry, ST exhibited a broad range of technology solutions and demonstrations for both traditional automotive applications and cutting-edge technologies being designed into next-generation automotive platforms.
To showcase these efforts, ST’s Smart Driving area include technology and product demonstrations for all key automotive subsystems. In Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and secure infotainment & telematics ST shows in-cabin imaging for driver monitoring, radar sensing, precise positioning, V2X communication, and over-the-air (OTA) system updating.
ST’s engineers and marketers exhibited technologies supporting the design of Electric Vehicles (EVs) and hybrids, with full Silicon Carbide-based solutions for EV traction inverters, battery management systems (BMS), on-board chargers and acoustic vehicle alert systems (AVAS). In addition, the automotive area will highlight powertrain, chassis and safety, and body and convenience applications.
