STMicroelectronics: STMicroelectronics Adopts ARM's Latest Processor Technology for Automotive Applications

Industry leaders drive the ARM®architecture into

automotive applications

Geneva, Switzerland, September 29, 2015 - STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM)
, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of
electronics applications, a leading supplier of ARM Cortex®-M core
microcontrollers, and a frequent lead partner in ARM microcontroller-core
developments, today announced an agreement in which ST has licensed new
32-bit ARMv8-R processor technology. ST will deploy the technology in 32-bit
microcontrollers targeting real-time safety-related Smart Driving
applications and in industrial applications.

First implementations of the ARMv8-R processor will be used in advanced
multi-core, high-performance processors for safety-related automotive devices
targeting PowerTrain, Safety and Gateway applications. Automotive
microcontrollers employing the new ARMv8-R architecture will deliver
best-in-class real-time performance and functional safety features combined
with unique innovations for sensing, computation, and actuation applications.
The advanced real-time architecture offers virtualization and separation to
improve software reliability, reduce development costs, and enable
consolidation of multiple applications onto a single smart processing
platform.

"The demands placed on vehicle electronic control units are increasing
dramatically and ARM is at the forefront in developing the processor
technology that will address the growing performance, power, safety and
reliability requirements," said James McNiven, general manager, CPU group,
ARM. "ST has extensive automotive experience and deep customer relationships.
Its transition to the ARMv8-R architecture will be a significant boost in
ensuring it is well-positioned for continuing success in this highly
competitive market."

"As a lead partner of ARM's new automotive-optimized microcontroller
technology, ST is continuing to pave the way to delivering products that
enable every facet of Smart Driving," said Marco Monti, Executive Vice
President and General Manager Automotive Product Group, STMicroelectronics.
"ST will continue to support and develop its successful current 32-bit MCU
platform while beginning the transition to the ARM architecture."

With its leadership and success supplying chips to all major car makers
worldwide, ST combines an unparalleled platform of advanced technologies, a
longstanding commitment to quality, and a thorough understanding of Smart
Driving and the automotive market gained through close collaboration with
leading customers. ST's solutions cover all key application areas in and
around the vehicle to ensure occupant safety, comfort and convenience, while
constantly watching for obstacles and potential dangers in every traffic
situation.
