Sleek and Stylish Netatmo Weather Station Forecasts Clear Skies Using STMicroelectronics Components

Sleek and Stylish Netatmo Weather Station Forecasts Clear Skies Using 
STMicroelectronics Components 
GENEVA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/18/13 --  STMicroelectronics (NYSE:
STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the
spectrum of electronics applications and the world's leading MEMS
(Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) manufacturer[1], and Netatmo, a
designer and manufacturer of elegant lifestyle-enhancing products,
today revealed ST's contributions to the award-winning[2] Netatmo
Urban Weather Station. The Weather Station is the world's first
personal weather station designed for users to monitor indoor and
outdoor environments using a free app running on an iPhone, iPad,
iPod Touch, or an Android mobile device.  
The stylishly unique Weather Station uses an ST pressure sensor, 2
STM32 microcontrollers, and an ST MEMS microphone to accurately
monitor environmental conditions, including temperature, air
pressure, and even ambient noise levels. Monitoring the environment
can help users improve their indoor wellness and adapt their outdoor
activities to current air quality.  
ST, the one-stop MEMS supplier of choice[3], has its MEMS sensors
enabling motion-activated user interfaces in many popular consumer
devices, with leadership in all major mobile operating systems.
Replicating the huge success in motion sensors, ST shipped more than
60 million MEMS microphones in 2012 and these devices are finding
increased use in new applications, such as Netatmo's Weather Station
and mobile communications.  
ST's STM32 microcontrollers are based on the industry-standard ARM
Cortex(TM)-M processor. The STM32 family covers 32-bit processing
across the range to offer, at the high-end, digital signal processing
and industry-leading performance, to higher value, more
cost-effective replacements for 8-bit microcontrollers. All STM32
devices deliver outstanding real-time capabilities and low-power,
low-voltage operation, along with a complete ecosystem that assures
ease of development alongside hardware and software compatibility.  
"Working with ST as our supplier of both microcontrollers and sensors
has allowed us to control the design with precision, focus on style
and elegance and deliver to our customers a truly useful and elegant
Weather Station," said Fred Pot
ter, CEO, Netatmo. "The outstanding
features of their MEMS and Micros make them a winning combination and
our weather station not only accurate but a fun and easy way to
monitor environment conditions for indoor and outdoor activities." 
"With ST's strong market leadership and technology in both sensors
and 32-bit microcontrollers, it makes sense to insure compatibility
and simplify the design by using the same supplier for both," said
Benedetto Vigna, Executive Vice President and General Manager,
Analog, MEMS and Sensors Group, STMicroelectronics. "From sensors to
secure communications, from power management to display driving and
projection, ST solutions are enabling wave after wave of innovation
in the wireless world that is changing the lives of people
everywhere."
