STMicroelectronics: STMicroelectronics and ARCCORE Team Up for Automotive Embedded-Processing Development

Geneva, Switzerland, Gothenburg, Sweden; February 18, 2016
--- STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving
customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, and ARCCORE AB,
the independent software company for AUTOSAR solutions, today announced a
strategic cooperation that significantly reduces the cost, risk, and
time-to-market for customers developing embedded automotive systems based on
the AUTOSAR framework.

AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) is a worldwide development
partnership of vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, and other companies from the
electronics, semiconductor, and software industries. The AUTOSAR members (ST
and ARCCORE among them) work together to develop common standards that
facilitate the introduction of innovative automotive electronic systems, and
implement them through cross-functional alliances with other members.

The new agreement brings together ST's SPC5 family of 32-bit Power
Architecture(TM) microcontrollers, specifically developed for use in
automotive Electronic Control Units, and ARCCORE's established AUTOSAR
development software. Under the terms of the agreement, ST customers will get
access to ARCCORE's comprehensiveAUTOSAR development software for the
SPC5without any up-front costs, paying a license fee only after the
evaluation period.

"ST and ARCCORE are changing the rules for developing AUTOSAR solutions," said
Luca Rodeschini, Director Strategic Business Development and Microcontroller
Business Unit, Automotive and Discrete Product Group, STMicroelectronics.
"Customers can now explore, develop, optimize, and industrialize innovative
automotive applications that are fully compatible with AUTOSAR's
specifications but do not require initial software payments. In addition, the
license fee, payable only when the project ends its evaluation phase, is
substantially lower than existing solutions."

ST's Power Architecture-based 32-bit MCUs are ideal for high-reliability
control applications, including engine control, transmission, anti-lock
braking systems, electrically operated power steering, active suspension, and
ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems).

ARCCORE's development tools for AUTOSAR include the Arctic Core
embedded-software platform, which comprises a real-time operating system,
memory services, and automotive communication services such as CAN and LIN,
and the Arctic Studio Integrated Development Environment.

"Our agreement with ST goes beyond a traditional service-driven model towards
a cooperation based on a shared product-support roadmap. By getting early
access to ST's Automotive MCU know-how, we can provide SPC5 customers with
the immediate advantage of a ready-made and market-proven methodology for
easy and hurdle-free development of new AUTOSAR-compliant applications," said
Thomas Winkler, Vice President Europe, ARCCORE.

The software is available now as a free download for project evaluation and
