UNTERPREMSTAETTEN, Austria & LAS VEGAS -- January 8, 2013

ams (SIX: AMS), a leading worldwide designer and manufacturer of
high-performance analog ICs and sensor solutions for consumer &
communications, industrial & medical and automotive applications, will
demonstrate product innovations and technology capabilities at the
International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013 that will illustrate how
sensors are transforming today’s consumer products. CES is taking place this
week in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The technology demonstration showcase will include the following:

  *60-watt 42” flat panel TV – ams technology enables a TV that consumes less
    power than a 60-watt bulb while delivering the highest picture quality,
    even in the lowest light conditions.
  *Color Light Sensor – Demonstration of color sensors for high accuracy
    ambient light and color temperature sensing for display backlight control
    and display/light color consistency.
  *Franklin Lightning Sensor – A keychain module that can sense lightning
    shows how ams technology can be incorporated into low-power, small form
    factor consumer devices.
  *Active Noise Cancellation – Visitors to the ams showcase will have the
    opportunity to try the “Egg of Silence” and hear how ams technology
    compensates for surrounding noise, with low power and top performance.
  *NFC demonstrations – Technology demonstrations include active boost, NFiC
    interfaces, and NFC readers for EMV payment.
  *Mobile payment – Payments via SIM or micro SD card will be demonstrated,
    with increased functionality and range.

“The Consumer Electronics Show provides an excellent opportunity for ams to
highlight the sensor solutions we have for a wide range of products, from
smartphones to tablets to TVs,” said Jerry Koontz, Director, Corporate
Marketing Communications at ams. “Anyone who walks through our technology
showcase at CES will see that ams is making the future of sensors a reality
