STMicroelectronics N.V. Research Report

ST recently launched a new single-chip magnetometer, the LIS3MDL, expanding
its MEMS sensor portfolio for mobile and consumer applications. As the leading
supplier of MEMS devices for consumer and mobile applications, many of its
customers may benefit from this new product, which is scheduled for mass
production for the second quarter of 2013. Last quarter, the Analog, MEMS &
Microcontrollers (AMM) segment generated 40 percent of sales, and with this
new product, the company aims to push itself even higher in that field. Aside
from MEMS and sensors, the company will sharply focus on other growth drivers
like Smart Power, automotive products, microcontrollers, and application
processors. Many analysts have been impressed with this strategy and find it
encouraging for the coming year. The Full Research Report on
