STMicroelectronics Showcases Its Latest Products and Technologies Augmenting 
the Mobile Experience for Consumers 
Exciting Demos at Mobile World Congress 2013 Showcase Products
Available Now for the Fastest-Growing Product Segments 
GENEVA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 --  STMicroelectronics (NYSE:
STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the
spectrum of electronics applications and a key enabler of many of the
innovations that have already transformed the world of mobile
devices, will present its rich offer of products and technologies,
available now, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on February
25-28 at Hall 7, Booth E110.  
ST's new strategy addresses the wireless market, focusing on the
fastest-growing segments and leveraging the already established
strong customer relationships with the major wireless players in the
industry. These growing segments -- Sensors, Imaging and Opto, MCUs,
Standard Logic, Display Drivers, and Discretes -- are projected to
grow at a compound annual rate of nearly 17% over the next 4 years,
almost 40% faster than the rest of the mobile handset and media
tablet market, according to market-research firm IHS.[1] ST's new
efforts build on the Company's earlier successes in enabling
important innovations for portable electronics in areas as varied as
power management, gesture sensing, security and imaging. 
Illustrating the breadth and depth of its portfolio, ST's demos cover
five key themes in the mobile world:  


 
--  Sensing, where ST will build on its position as the world's leading
    manufacturer[2] of MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) devices and
    will also introduce a revolutionary proximity detector that cures
    smartphone hang-ups;
--  Security, where ST's Near Field Communication and related Secure
    Elements provide the optimum solutions for mobile payments, mobile
    ticketing, securing personal data or interacting with equipment. A
    demo will highlight ST's Secure Element hosting Google Wallet in Nexus
    devices;
--  Sharing and interaction, where the world's smallest and most efficient
    image-projection engine uses red, blue and green lasers and MEMS
    micro-mirrors to project amazing images from a mobile device to any
    surface;
--  Energy management; where ST's unique energy-harvesting EEPROM and
    other demos will emphasize the Company's commitment to minimizing
    power consumption; and
--  Enhanced audio experience, where industry-unique audio engines and
    MEMS microphones extend boundaries of innovation in personal audio to
    realize a new generation of superior-sounding active
    noise-cancellation headsets and smart audio accessories.

  
ST will also demonstrate the superior performance of its
ground-breaking FD-SOI (Fully-Depleted Silicon-on-Insulator)
technology at 28nm that is not only faster than the equivalent bulk
CMOS technology but also much simpler to manufacture and allows
consumer devices to run cooler and faster.
