The Charging Interface Initiative e. V. (CharIN), and STMicroelectronics, have announced that ST has become a member of the initiative.
With an unparalleled portfolio of automotive and secure microcontrollers, industry-leading sensing and power technologies-including advanced silicon carbide (SiC), and top-tier secure connectivity expertise, ST brings to CharIN its ability to address and industrialise sophisticated, secure, yet easy-to-use interfaces for hybrid and electric-vehicle (HEV/EV) charging.
Claas Bracklo, Chairman of the CharIN e.V. said: "ST brings valuable automotive, security, sensing, power, and processing expertise to CharIN, along with its strong relationships across the industry that complement and supplement the already-strong CharIN roster of members and partners.”
"Standardising the technical setup and charging of hybrid-electric and electric vehicles globally will reduce range anxiety and be a powerful accelerant for EV adoption," said Marco Monti, Executive Vice President Automotive and Discrete Group, STMicroelectronics.
Monti added: "ST's long experience, leadership, and broad portfolio of products in the automotive and power-electronics sectors, together with our recognised strengths in sensors, secure payment and secure communication, mean that we are perfectly placed to contribute strongly to the CharIN initiative and to help meet industry needs by delivering the technology to the market at the appropriate time."
