"Green Power" will be the theme of STMicroelectronics' demonstration at the 14th staging of the yearly IIC-China conference and exhibition in Shenzhen (Feb.26-29).

ST will be highlighting energy efficient products and solutions. More than 30 product demos, which include applications for industrial, consumer and computer markets, will showcase the company's power management solutions, a reflection of ST's commitment to help customers reduce their environment footprint.

For the industrial sector, ST will highlight solutions ranging from green air-conditioning inverter to eBike. Power consumption in these applications is reduced thanks to the use of ST's low-power microcontrollers. ST will demonstrate how the 32bit STM32 MCU enables intelligent compressor control in air-conditioning systems by using inverters in home-appliance electric motors to achieve a 30-40 percent decrease in energy consumption. Also on show will be an 8bit STM8S single-chip Flash controller with true embedded EEPROM and calibrated RC oscillator, enabling significant cost effectiveness in the majority of applications, among which the eBike is the most successful in China.

For power supply applications, ST will showcase the L6591, which offers asymmetrical half bridge topology for adapter/ chargers over 90W compliant to Energy star 2.0, and the L6566A for 75W mobile PC adapter/chargers compliant to Energy Star 4.0 regulations.

One particular solution that has been developed by ST Greater China Competence Center is the Solar LED street light solution. It is composed of two modules: an 85W solar charger and a 25W LED Driver.

ST will also demonstrate the one-chip LED backlight drivers, LED7706 / LED7707/ PM66xx, which are effective for applications of large- and medium-sized displays, such as digital TVs, PCs and panels used in factory automation. These three products supply a current of 30 or 85mA to each row of up to 60 white LEDs.

Meanwhile, ST has invited four value-added resellersresellersManley, MXchip, BJX and B&Sto jointly showcase energy-efficiency solutions catering to customers in the Greater China region. Moreover, the solutions aid small to medium-size customers to quickly respond to end appliance market requirements.

ST will also spearhead two sessions in the IIC-China Vendor Seminars, elaborating further on the company's technology for Green Power. On Feb.26, ST will present, 'Ultra-thin semiconductor power adapter solutions / platform' and 'New Viper family products for LED applications'. Additionally, at the exhibition, ST will present 'Intel/AMD processor based motherboards and efficient power-management solutions' to IIC visitors.
