The focus of ST’s innovation and the evolution of their technology stems from long-term trends, reshaping industries and societies as well as the need to support a more sustainable world.
The first trend is the shift from traditional cars to smarter mobility solutions: with connected, digital, electric vehicles, and their supporting infrastructure moving from a niche to high volumes globally. Smart Mobility means thinking differently about how we move around, reducing pollution and congestion. ST’s car electrification solutions enable makers to build better more affordable electric vehicles while ST’s ADAS solutions support customers to make driving safer for drivers and pedestrians alike.
The second trend is the need for much more efficient power and energy management across all devices and systems. This trend is key to address the increasing global energy demand while reducing environmental impacts. ST has a long history of innovations in the field of power and energy management, and ST recognize that now, more than ever, the world needs to become a better steward of the resources it uses. ST was inventor of smart power technologies and continues to lead the movement to green technologies, with wide bandgap materials such as Silicon Carbide and Gallium Nitride that enable the industry to save energy, without compromising innovation.
The third trend is the large-scale deployment of the Internet of Things (IoT), accelerated by the rollout of 5G connectivity. This trend is transforming every area of our lives where we work, where we live, the cars we drive, and the objects we use with billions of cloud-connected devices for personal, corporate, and public applications. ST’s products pioneered the Internet of Things transformation and big data collection, and they are at the forefront of data security with solutions that help customers implement the latest cryptographic measures.
