STMicroelectronics: STMicroelectronics, a Connected-Device Leader, Again Named Title Sponsor of Wearable Technologies Innovation World Cup

Geneva, May 19, 2014 -
STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the
spectrum of electronics applications, and a top-tier supplier of technology
for the booming wearable market, will once again be the title sponsor of the
Wearable Technologies Innovation World Cup in 2014/2015.

With a broad product portfolio and a hardware and software ecosystem ideally
suited to enable the burgeoning market, ST sees the Wearables Technology
Innovation World Cup as an opportunity to further encourage creativity and
plant the seeds that will bloom to produce the next generation of innovative
wearable devices. ST is supporting developers with its STM32Nucleo
boards,[1]BlueNRG shields,[2]and BlueNRG-based Bluetooth®Smart USB
dongles[3]along with relevant STM32Cube development software, and will
provide these tools free, in any combination, to the first 100 contestants.
Among these kits is ST's recently launched BlueNRG shield, an affordable
Bluetooth Low Energy development kit that works withSTM32 Nucleoopen
microcontroller platform, supports Arduino connectivity, and is the first in
a growing ecosystem of specialized shields to facilitate and accelerate
development projects.

"Look around at the cool gadgets all of your friends are wearing. As a leading
supplier of technology, including sensors, microcontrollers, power
management, analog, connectivity, and security, ST is enabling these
bracelets, watches, glasses, and other wearables that are augmenting our
lives," said Andrea Onetti, General Manager Analog and Audio Systems
Division, STMicroelectronics. "Our participation as the Title Sponsor for the
second consecutive year is natural and this year we are increasing our
efforts by giving away some of our outstanding development tools to the first
100 registrants to ensure they keep the wearables momentum going."

"STMicroelectronics is the world leader in RF and sensor technologies and fits
perfectly to the fast growing WT market and so the Wearable Technologies
Group is very proud to have ST again on board as the title sponsor of its WT
Innovation World Cup," said Christian Stammel, CEO of Wearable Technologies
and Navispace. "Our community will use these great development tools to
create the next generation of wearables."

With a product portfolio that spans the full range of low-power and
high-performance sensors, connectivity ICs, audio amplifiers,op amps, analog
switches, and battery gas gauges for the wearables market, along with an
industry-leading family of STM32 ARM®Cortex®-M microcontrollers and an
outstanding choice of development tools, ST is positioned to continue its
success in the wearables market and will continue to grow its ecosystem with
specialized shields.

The Innovation World Cup identifies and supports innovative solutions and
applications worn close to the body, on the body, or even in the body. From
June 1stto November 15th2014, innovators and developers from all over the
world are invited to submit innovative solutions that have the potential to
become real marketable products for Wearable Technologies in the fields of
Sports&Fitness, Healthcare&Wellness, Safety&Security, and Gaming&Lifestyle.
Winners will be announced in February 2015 at the Innovation Cup award
ceremony during Wearable Technologies' Conference Europe.

The 2013/2014 Wearable Technologies Innovation World Cup, sponsored by ST,
drew more than 350 submitted final solutions from among 600 registered
participants.
