  STMicroelectronics : 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, February 26, 2013 - 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
· 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.
