STMicroelectronics Joins ARM mbed Project

New collaboration enables developers to create smart products with ARM-based
industry-leading STM32 microcontrollers and accelerates the Internet of Things

CAMBRIDGE, UK and GENEVA, Switzerland, Dec. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ARM,
the world's leading semiconductor supplier, and STMicroelectronics, a global
semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics
applications, today announced that ST has joined the ARM® mbed(TM) Project.
The agreement will give developers using ST's STM32 microcontroller range,
based on the ARM Cortex^®-M-based processor series free access to the mbed
software, development tools and online collaboration platform, enabling them
to realize their own visions for the new wave of intelligent electronics
products.

ARM mbed is a collaborative industry project to nurture the Internet of Things
(IoT) and meet the needs of a new professional developer audience. It delivers
free tools and fundamental open-source hardware and software building blocks
for the rapid development of innovative ARM-based devices. The project also
enables the easy integration of connectivity, sensor and cloud-service
software components and the tools and support for a dynamic, collaborative
developer and partner ecosystem.

ST's STM32 microcontroller range starts at just $0.32 and the MCUs address the
full spectrum of applications from simple products to entire platform
solutions. Combined with the mbed platform, this offers software portability,
diverse connectivity options and a rapid development approach for a full range
of IoT applications.

"The mbed project is bringing together leading technology companies to create
a step change in productivity for embedded device development," said Simon
Ford, director, IoT Platforms, ARM. "We have learnt from the web and
smartphone revolutions that by building an open-source software platform with
reusable software components and free development and collaboration tools, we
can enable the creation of IoT and smart devices on a previously unimagined
scale."

"By joining the mbed project, ST is enabling developers across diverse markets
to quickly prototype and create new products based on leading-edge STM32
microcontrollers," said Daniel Colonna, Microcontrollers Marketing Director at
ST. "The support for mbed will be launched in Q1 with a brand new line of
STM32 microcontroller development boards to provide a consistent way to
develop with devices across the STM32 portfolio at hardware and software
levels."

The first mbed-enabled STM32 development boards will be launched in February
2014, and support for other boards and targets will follow. Find out more and
