STMicroelectronics: New Automotive Microcontrollers from STMicroelectronics Pave the Way to Smart Driving via More Secure and Connected Cars

* Bring high performance, ruggedness, and safety to Car Body and Security
* Enable smarter, smaller, and lighter car gateways and body modules

Geneva, May 11, 2016
- STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM),
a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of
electronics applications, has launched a new family of automotive
microcontrollers that heralds the advent of more secure and connected cars.

This new family of power-efficient and real-time-capable MCUs brings the
world's first Power Architecture(TM)- based devices manufactured in state-of
the-art 40nm Flash technology dedicated to Car Body and Security
applications. It is composed of three product lines; SPC58 B-Line, SPC58
C-Line, and SPC58 G-Line, which offer from 512KB to 6MB of embedded Flash

The high level of scalability allows theSPC58 familyto perfectly address the
ever-growing need for in-car automotive networks with high bandwidth and
strong in-vehicle security. The devices combine Ethernet and ISO CAN
FD[1]communication interfaces with the latest Hardware Security Module (HSM)
technology to ensure functional integrity of the car's Electronic Control
Units (ECUs), intrusion detection, and protection against malicious attacks.

ST's in-house embedded Flash (eFlash) 40nm process technology is ideal to
integrate high performance and outstanding automotive-grade reliability in
very small packages, enabling car gateways and body modules to be smarter,
smaller, and lighter.

"Building on the success of our SPC56 Automotive MCU family, which is widely
used by Tier-1 and car manufacturers, the new SPC58 enables the automotive
industry to raise the bar in security and in-car communications," said Fabio
Marchio, General Manager Automotive Digital Division, STMicroelectronics.
"The next generation of smarter cars will rely on electronic systems based on
MCUs that provide the best combination of performance, low power consumption,
high security, and robustness. ST's SPC58 MCU lines meet all these needs,
making them the leading solutions for next-generation in-car controllers."

TheSPC58 family, optimized for Car Body and Security applications, offers a
highly scalable line of products with industry-leading benefits, including:

* ASIL-B (Automotive Safety Integrity Level) compliance;
* The highest number of ISO CAN-FD and Ethernet communication channels on the
* Double the performance of previous-generation solutions, thanks to the
multi-core architecture, higher system frequency, and faster memory-access
* The state-of-the-art 40nm Flash technology enables high integration and
performance in very small packages - as few as 32 pins;
* Perfect companion MCU for camera or telematics applications;
* Perfect solution for in-car stand-alone and integrated gateways;
* Assured security via the built-in HSM and related security firmware[2]that
ensure the highest protection against malicious attacks;
* Option to support "Over the Air" (OTA) requirements allowing smart and
wireless SW update;
* Easy portability of applications from SPC56 to SPC58, with high reuse of
existing software, development tools, and hardware experience.

"Tomorrow's connected car will communicate with everything, from its internal
systems such as transmission, advanced driver-assistance electronics, and
front panel to roadside infrastructure, emergency services, and other cars.
And it will have to provide the highest level of security," added Marchio.
"The SPC58 Automotive MCUs, with their unique combination of performance,
connectivity, security, and scalability, allow car makers and their
sub-system suppliers to set new standards in ensuring a safer, greener, and
more enjoyable driving experience."

The new products are part of a comprehensive ST strategy to offer products
with embedded security functions that include stand-alone Secure Elements.

Samples of the SPC58 B-, C- and G-Line MCUs have been provided to lead
customers and full production is scheduled for Q1 2017.
