Geneva, July 10, 2018 – STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, has introduced the automotive-grade ASM330LHH six-axis inertial sensor for super-high-resolution motion tracking in advanced vehicle navigation and telematics applications.

Serving demands for continuous, accurate vehicle location to support automated services, the ASM330LHH lets advanced dead-reckoning algorithms calculate precise position from sensor data if satellite signals are blocked. This often happens in urban canyons, tunnels, covered roadways, parking garages, or dense forests. Its advanced, low-noise, temperature-stable design enables dependable telematics services such as e-tolling, tele-diagnostics, and e-Call assistance. Precision inertial data in six axes also meets the needs of advanced automated-driving systems.

Magneti Marelli has selected the ASM330LHH for advanced telematics systems, to be fitted as original equipment by global automotive groups in upcoming vehicle ranges.

For the ASM330LHH, as with all its MEMS sensors, ST owns the entire manufacturing process, from designing the sensors, through wafer fabrication, packaging, test, calibration, and supply. Full end-to-end control enables ST to create high-performing sensors and assure customers of a robust and responsive supply chain, with rigorous end-of-line quality screening.

“ST is the largest supplier of MEMS sensors for automotive non-safety applications, such as navigation and telematics ,” said Andrea Onetti, Analog, MEMS and Sensors Group Vice President, STMicroelectronics. “Our latest-generation inertial sensor, the automotive-grade ASM330LHH, enables precise positioning for safer, smarter driving.”
