STMicroelectronics: STMicroelectronics Reveals Most Highly Integrated Automotive 77GHz Radar Chip for Emerging Long-Range Applications

· New 77GHz radar IC for long-range applications delivered to Tier-1
brands

· 77 GHz builds on leadership in short-range (24 GHz) radar ICs, 35
million of
which have been shipped to date

· New product complements ST's leading portfolio for ADAS systems,
which now
features short-, mid-, and long-range radar solutions on top of vision
processing and V2X

Geneva, February 23, 2016 - STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM),
a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of
electronics applications and the world's largest supplier of short- and
mid-range (24GHz) radar chips for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS),
is now supplying its latest long-range (77GHz) radar chips to leading
automotive customers.

24GHz systems have spearheaded the introduction of on-board automotive radar
by enabling affordable, short- and mid-range smart-driving features such as
blind-spot detection, collision avoidance, and lane-departure warning. ST has
delivered over 35 million 24GHz radar transceiver ICs to date, and continues
to build its customer base as more and more markets demand vehicles enhanced
with ADAS.

Today's most developed markets are ready for next-generation features like
high-speed adaptive cruise control that require high-power-output, long-range
radar, which is best implemented using 77GHz technology. The higher frequency
allows smaller antenna sizes, and permits the same technology to be used for
ADAS requiring short-range, medium-range, or long-range radar, hence
simplifying system design and reducing time to market.

ST is now building on its success with 24GHz radar to create a new, highly
integrated 77GHz transceiver that delivers market-leading performance. The
device contains three 77GHz transmitters and four receivers on a single chip,
which enables customers to build smaller, lower-cost, and less complex
systems compared with competing solutions in the market that are less highly
integrated. The multi-channel architecture of ST's new 77GHz radar chip
enhances object recognition and resolution that translates into superior
performance and dependability on the road.

Marco Monti, Executive Vice President, General Manager, Automotive and
Discrete Product Group, STMicroelectronics, said, "We have leveraged our
technology and success in ADAS markets to create the industry's most highly
integrated 77GHz radar transceiver. Our customers designing-in this device
are positioned strongly, as demand for 77GHz technology in advanced markets
is growing in mid-market and lower-cost vehicle platforms."

ST is now sampling its multi-channel single-chip 77GHz radar transceiver to
lead customers and is preparing to enter volume production in March 2017.
