Stmicroelectronics unveils first car- door controller IC
Stmicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader and supplier of car-door electronics has introduced the market’s first multifunctional door-zone driver with an integrated electric-window control. This innovative chip reduces the bill-of-material costs and offers new levels of passenger comfort. It has already been selected for broad adoption at a leading German car manufacturer. ST’S newest door actuator driver removes the need for mechanical relays in car-window control, currently being used by equipment manufacturers to drive the electric-window motors.
