Safe real-time automotive MCU

for domain controllers

ST serves the key trends in the automotive market – vehicle digitalization and electrification – with a comprehensive range of products and solutions. Our automotive microcontroller unit (MCU) families are automotive qualified and meet developer requirements ranging from cost-sensitive to highly advanced automotive applications. They incorporate support for Over the Air (OTA) updates for critical vehicle powertrain, body, chassis, and infotainment features, which are increasingly defined by software.

Car architectures are evolving from many distributed electronic control units to a smaller number of powerful domain controllers. ST is powering this evolution with a new family of high-performance, multi-core automotive microcontrollers that meet the stringent automotive safety requirements.

Accelerating electrification

Silicon Carbide power devices

Our Silicon Carbide technology for vehicle electrification and charging stations enables our customers to create electric cars with longer ranges, that charge faster, and have a lower weight. As the number of electronic components per car increases, we need to ensure that all the components used to power, control and monitor the different car subsystems consume less energy. ST’s high-efficiency smart power solutions and power-efficient processors are designed to do just that.
