On November 16, 2022, join ST’s industrial live stream at electronica 2022 in Munich, Germany, as we explore what innovation will power tomorrow. While we are living in the fourth Industrial Revolution, Industry 5.0 is already showing its first lights. The next milestone won’t simply be about how we build things but how we can build a better world for people. Societies are already recovering from a global pandemic, something that previously took decades. We are creating more efficient and more intelligent solutions to problems we didn’t know we could solve. And now, people want innovations that power more than assembly lines but a human-centric approach to modern life.
Industrial applications and the need to create a better world
One step toward Industry 5.0 is the digitalization of industrial assets. Thanks to small, efficient, precise, and intelligent IoT systems, companies can get data on equipment or infrastructure that had never provided information before. Teams can make decisions based on data rather than hunches and theories. Corporations with no electronics know-how can now bring digitalization to their operations. And businesses that have not yet adopted condition monitoring or predictive maintenance solution are now sorely regretting it. That’s why our live stream will feature five partner testimonials that will share their experience and impart their wisdom.
The ST talk show will also delve into the silicon carbide revolution and its impact on photovoltaic inverters, EV chargers, and more. A human-centric approach to technology must address today’s greatest challenges. Whether it is to help reduce energy bills, improve energy independence, or fight climate change, innovation cannot simply do more; it must do better. Consequently, we will have a panel of experts helping tech leaders understand the most straightforward ways they can optimize their operations with available solutions. From machines in smart factories to EV chargers for the home, the live event will show how companies can bring positive change and usher in Industry 5.0.
In preparation for the live event
To prepare for the live event, here are a few web pages and blog posts to become familiar with the topics we’ll cover on November 16, 2022.
Many of the demos we will show at the ST booth at electronica 2022 will use LoRa or Sigfox to transfer data to a cloud. The idea is not new, but it is reaching critical adoption. In many instances, companies either use a microcontroller like an STM32L4 and an S2-LP transceiver. However, many also use the STM32WL, which includes a sub-GHz transceiver and vastly simplified design. We are even starting to see the rise of Bluetooth mesh applications.
- S2-LP Transceiver, Wireless Communicators Last 10 Years on a Single Battery
- Sigfox and the S2-LP, Better Privacy and Efficiency in Physical Distance Trackers
- STM32WL, The 1st MCU with Embedded LoRa Transceiver, a Masterclass in Chip Design
- STM32WL5x, The 1st Wireless MCU with Embedded Multi-Modulation LoRa Radio, Now With Dual Core
- Silvanet: an STM32WL can live 15 years outdoors to protect against forest fires
- XoverIoT or the incredible story of how to help children in classrooms by adding Sigfox to a CO2 detector
- Making Bluetooth mesh Easy, Scalable, And User Friendly
Quality data from sensors
The digitalization of assets requires quality data from all sorts of sensors. Classically, some systems use accelerometers like the LIS2DW12. Others use vibration sensors, like the IIS3DWB, pressure sensors like the LPS22HBTR, or time-of-flight sensors, like the VL53L1X.
- 2-in-1, ST’s First Accelerometer with Built-In Absolute Thermometer
- World Record : VL53L0X, the Smallest Time-of-Flight Sensor Gets More Powerful
- Update: A New Time-of-Flight Sensor Builds on Existing Success Stories
The advent of silicon carbide is also critical in the fight against climate change and the struggles people face during this energy crisis. It seems that the material has gained new levels of popularity, and ST recently announced the opening of a new SiC substrate manufacturing facility in Italy to meet the new demand.
