STMicroelectronics: STMicroelectronics Accelerates STM8 Sales past Two Billion Units, Boosting Share of World Microcontroller Market

* Cumulative sales leap from one billion reached in May 2014 to two billion
in February 2016, contributing to ST's MCU market-share growth
* MCUs offer class-leading device performance, code efficiency, versatile
peripherals, and reliability/robustness
* China a key market, with strong contributions from distribution partners
Willas-Array, Wintech, and Yosun

Geneva, April 5, 2016 - STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM)
, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of
electronics applications, has surpassed two billion unit sales of its robust
and versatileSTM8 microcontrollers, less than two years after reaching one
billion unit sales, noting particularly strong success in China.

Aided by these accelerating STM8 sales, ST's share of the general-purpose
microcontroller market has grown to 12.7% in 2015 from 8.2% in 2013,
according to World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS). "The STM8 has
become one of the world's most popular microcontrollers, and is a sturdy
pillar of our strategy," said Daniel Colonna, Microcontrollers Marketing
Director, STMicroelectronics. "As with all of our MCUs, we are committed to
supporting STM8 for the long term, and we'll continue to strengthen our
market position."

The STM8 provides an economical and efficient electronic brain for smart
devices in daily use throughout the world, such as white goods, consumer
products, automotive control units (ECUs), and industrial controls. It
combines class-leading computing power and competitive pricing with support
for memory-efficient coding, low power consumption, high feature integration,
versatile configurations, and an outstanding development ecosystem that
facilitates design, debug, and prototyping. In addition, built-in memory
cycling and error checking, as well as high reliability for automotive
applications, have made STM8 a benchmark for robust embedded performance.

The large number of devices shipped reflects the microcontroller's appeal to
OEMs serving high-volume markets, and the work of ST's distributors worldwide
who have helped design STM8 devices into a wide variety of projects. Sales
performance has been particularly impressive in China through ST's top
microcontroller distributors, Willas-Array, Wintech and Yosun, targeting
products for the country's domestic market as well as for export.

Key technical features of STM8 microcontrollers:

* Proprietary CPU core with best-in-class performance
* High code efficiency enabling more sophisticated applications in smaller
memory footprint
* 1.65V to 5.5V power-supply range covers many application types
* 2KB to 128KB on-chip Flash; up to 2KB data EEPROM
* Multiple package types from 20-pin to 80-pin, including LQFP, WLCSP,
QFN20-48, SO-20, TSSOP-20
* High integration for cost-effective system design:

* ADC, DAC, multiple channels up to 12-bit
* Rich serial interfaces
* Multiple timers
* Display controllers up to 8 x 40 LCD
* Flexible, power-saving clock system
* Up to 68 high-current I/Os
