STMicroelectronics Receives Two 2014 CES Innovations Awards

GENEVA, Nov. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM), a
global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of
electronics applications, has received two International 2014 CES Innovations
Design and Engineering Awards. The STLUX385A digital controller IC for
lighting and power management and the STM32F429/439 microcontroller product
line were both selected as honorees in the Embedded Technologies category. The
prestigious annual competition recognizes technology manufacturers' and
developers' outstanding design and engineering efforts in consumer-electronics
products.

"It is an honor for STMicroelectronics to be acknowledged alongside the
world's leaders in outstanding product design and engineering," said Bob
Krysiak, Executive Vice President Americas Region, STMicroelectronics. "We are
committed to supporting our customers in augmenting the lives of their
customers, and these awards are a validation of the investment in our
engineering teams, and their commitment to develop the technology that enables
next-generation devices."

STM32F429/439 microcontroller (MCU) product line

The high-performance STM32F429/439 product line of flash microcontrollers
offers new degrees of freedom to MCU users. The STM32F429/439 devices balance
performance, power and size, while integrating the world's highest-performance
ARM^® Cortex(TM)-M MCU. Combining hardware advantages with the extensive STM32
software ecosystem from the hardware abstraction layer through middleware to
the application field, ST's STM32F429/439 microcontrollers deliver a
compelling solution for the next generation of consumer devices.

STLUX385A controller IC for lighting and power management

The world's first universal digital controller for lighting and
power-conversion applications, ST's STLUX385A opens the way to cost-effective,
energy-efficient lighting systems in the home, in the office, and on the
street. The STLUX385A is the first device able to address all of these
applications with a single programmable chip, simultaneously giving consumers
more control and saving them money, while making end devices smaller. The
STLUX385A distils 25 years of ST leadership in power-conversion solutions into
a single high-value platform that customers can use to build more innovative
and efficient lighting solutions.

For example, the STLUX385A enables intelligent LED street lamps that increase
their brightness gradually as daylight fades and, conversely, automatically
reduce their brightness as the sun rises, instead of having only a full
brightness or off-setting at predetermined times. Moreover, the STLUX385A
allows sophisticated lighting systems that currently require the use of
expensive external Digital Signal Processors to be produced with shorter
time-to-market and lower costs.

Selected by a panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members
of the trade media, honored products will be displayed during the
International CES in Las Vegas, Nevada, in January 2014.
