STMicroelectronics: STMicroelectronics and ARM Cultivate Future Engineering Talent in Chinese Electronics Industry

Shanghai
, China, May 21, 2015
- STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving
customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, and ARM (LSE: ARM,
NASDAQ: ARMH.US), the world's leading semiconductor intellectual property
(IP) supplier, have announced the creation of an innovation lab initiative to
promote the ARM®mbed(TM)and STM32 technologies in China. The collaboration
will develop and expand the Chinese engineering community targeting global
Internet-of-Things (IoT) opportunities.

Eighteen polytechnic universities across China have already joined the
program, which is also supported by the Association of Fundamental Computing
Education in Chinese Universities. The program will offer teaching materials
to support embedded system courses based on STM32-based development boards,
ARM mbed-enabled embedded system designs and ARM Keil®MDK development tools.
Over the next five years, the program aims to establish 200 innovation labs
across graduate schools, universities, and professional institutions.

"With the increasingly dynamic electronics industry, teaching-materials
preparation that addresses the latest technologies is one of the biggest
challenges for teachers," said Prof. Bao Jie, Association of Fundamental
Computing Education in Chinese Universities. "Leveraging industry
advancements such as the ARM mbed and ST STM32 Microcontroller platforms, the
innovation labs can really help teachers to develop young talented people by
giving them solid theoretical knowledge, great practical skills, and a sense
of design and creativity."

"Since its launch in the mid-2000s, STMicroelectronics' STM32 microcontroller
family has proven a market success with outstanding performance. The STM32
family and its complete ecosystem helped reshape the microcontroller market,"
said Arnaud Julienne, Senior Director of MMS, Greater China and South Asia
Region, STMicroelectronics. "Promoting STM32 with ARM mbed in the university
programs can help students become familiar with one of the most popular
embedded platform at an early stage and demonstrates our support and
commitment to the local engineering communities."

"ARM is successful because its ecosystem is full of inspiring and expert
people," said Allen Wu, Executive Vice president and President for Greater
China, ARM. "The IoT represents an enormous growth opportunity for Chinese
technology companies on the world stage and we want to support that. The
STM32 Innovation Lab gives educators access to the latest teaching materials
from the ARM University Program, including ST's products, to ensure students
begin their career path in the Chinese technology industry in the best way
possible."
