STMicroelectronics: STMicroelectronics and Paradox Engineering Present Smart City Technologies at TECHNO-FRONTIER 2015

Tokyo, May 20, 2015
- Ready for the Internet-of-Things (IoT) age when everything is expected to be
connected to the Internet, STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global
semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics
applications, and Paradox Engineering SA, a Swiss technology company
designing and developing IoT-ready wireless sensor network solutions, will be
demonstrating wireless mesh network technologies for Smart City at
TECHNO-FRONTIER 2015 (May 20-22, 2015).

A domestic, urban, or industrial environment can only be smart when devices
and sensors installed in various locations or objects are part of a network
that is managed coherently and cohesively. In a Smart City, data coming from
the various 'urban' nodes can be used to develop services for efficient
energy management, reduced environmental footprint, and improved maintenance
for public infrastructure and buildings.

At ST's booth (No. 5E-301), visitors will have the opportunity to learn how an
integrated wireless sensor network platform enables monitoring, control, and
delivery of Smart City services using Paradox Engineering's PE.AMI smart city
solution and PE.STONE IoT platform, connected with ST's STM32 Nucleo
development boards, various X-Nucleo extension boards for motion and
environmental sensing, and proximity sensor boards. The demonstration at ST's
booth will show a clear and simple example of a smart environment.

Paradox Engineering has advanced expertise and market experience in radio and
ultra-low-power design, as well as network design, set-up and management.
PE.AMI is Paradox Engineering's multi-application platform for hybrid
wireless/PLC narrowband/broadband full mesh networks, offering multiple
off-the-shelf vertical applications for Smart Lighting, Smart Parking, Smart
Metering, Smart Waste, and EV-charger management. It supports IP cameras for
video surveillance, traffic monitoring, public Wi-Fi, and other urban
applications. PE.STONE is Paradox Engineering's integrated hardware and
software module for easy development of high-performance and cost-effective
IoT applications. It enables projects for Smart Cities, Smart Grid, Energy
Management, Wireless Sensor Networks for any M2M, HAN (Home Area Network),
HUMS (Health Usage Monitoring Service), and industrial-control systems, and
many more. PE.STONE forms the basis of the PE.AMI platform. Both Paradox
Engineering's IPv6/6LoWPAN(1)-compliant off-the-shelf PE.AMI platform and
PE.STONE module have a self-recovery function and enable highly robust and
scalable mesh networks.

Both Paradox Engineering's PE.AMI and PE.STONE platforms use ST's STM32L
high-performance, low-power 32-bit microcontroller and SPIRIT1, a sub-GHz
wireless transceiver IC that provides high receiver sensitivity, offers
extremely low current consumption and is equipped with high-performance
software. The PE.AMI wireless lighting control board also contains ST's
energy-metering IC for monitoring power consumption.

The STM32 Nucleo board that powers the ST/Paradox Engineering Smart City
demonstration is equipped with the STM32F401 MCU, which offers an optimal
balance between power consumption and performance during operation,
facilitating quick software and hardware development of embedded systems. ST
provides the sensing and computing functions required by wireless sensor
nodes by combining the Nucleo boards with an X-Nucleo extension board
equipped with a MEMS accelerometer and pressure/temperature/humidity sensors,
or a Time-of-Flight based proximity sensor board. ST Nucleo and X-Nucleo
boards offer a ready-to-use ecosystem to enable fast development of IoT
products.

"At TECHNO-FRONTIER, Paradox Engineering and ST are showcasing how technology
can really enable smart environments and allow integrated advanced services
to be managed and delivered, connecting and controlling the objects of today
and tomorrow," stated Gianni Minetti, President and CEO, Paradox Engineering.
"We found ST technologies to be the perfect match for our pioneering
approach: our innovative technologies represent an accelerated path to make
Smart Cities and IoT solutions come true for the benefit of everyday life of
people and communities and to reduce the risk of long development cycles in a
fast moving market."

"The TECHNO-FRONTIER demonstrations clearly show how ST is enabling the
creation of convenient, environmentally-friendly Smart City systems, capable
of using and analyzing huge amounts of data, in combination with Paradox
Engineering's advanced wireless-communication technologies," said Marco
Cassis, Executive Vice President and President of Japan and Korea Region,
STMicroelectronics. "To make it easy for our customers to develop various
types of wireless sensor nodes more quickly, ST is continuously expanding its
IoT development arsenal, encompassing MCUs, sensors, communication ICs, and
power ICs, with both hardware and software offerings."
