- New low-noise 3-axis accelerometer delivers affordable high-accuracy sensing for industrial inclinometers
- New parts supported by commitment of 10-year product-longevity program
- Additional sensing functions, optimized for industrial precision and stability, to follow in 2018
Geneva, May 9, 2018 – STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications and the leading supplier of MEMS motion sensors for consumer products IHS Markit, Consumer and Mobile MEMS Report 2017 (Jan 2018), is extending its commitment to drive advanced automation and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) by adding new high-stability MEMS sensors with 10-year product-longevity assurance.
ST’s 10-year longevity commitment assures long-term availability of a wide range of high-performing components used in industrial equipment, helping vendors handle the typically long in-market lifetimes of their products and extended operation in challenging environmental conditions. In addition to industrial sensors, the program covers STM32 microcontrollers, motor drivers, analog components, power converters, LEDs, and existing MEMS sensors that will be supported for at least 10 years.
“These high-quality industrial sensors leverage our investments in MEMS design and high-yield fabrication processes to deliver superior performance with low ownership costs for applications where the highest precision, repeatability, and robustness are critical,” said Andrea Onetti, Group VP and General Manager, MEMS Sensors Division, STMicroelectronics. “We will continue to introduce new types of precision sensors for industrial applications in the coming months, covered by our 10-year longevity commitment, including combination sensors, specialized sensors, and complete inertial modules.”
