STMicroelectronics: STMicroelectronics Ships Milestone STM8 Microcontroller

Fast ramp to one billionth device, demonstrates market

focus and continuing commitment to 8-bit market

Geneva, May 21, 2014 - STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM)
, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of
electronics applications, and a leading supplier ofembedded microcontrollers,
has announced the shipment of its one billionth STM8 8-bit microcontroller.
The one billionth device was shipped to lighting-control manufacturer Lutron
Electronics.

Offering outstanding levels of performance and cost-effectiveness, the
general-purposeSTM8 familysuits a wide range of industrial and home-appliance
applications, as well as automotive, low-voltage, and battery-operated
products via its high-performance 8-bit core and a state-of-the-art set of
peripherals.

"With significant input from Lutron and others over time, ST has developed the
STM8 to enable high integration by embedding non-volatile data memory and
excellent analog performance across a wide voltage range from 1.65V to 5.5V,"
said Daniel Colonna, Microcontrollers Marketing Director, STMicroelectronics.
"The short, 5-year ramp to 1 billion devices, and Lutron's continuing
commitment and dedication to the microcontroller, demonstrate the value of
the STM8 to our customers, the market, and ST."

With the industry's continuing emphasis on reducing the overall system cost,
the STM8 platform is an ideal performer. The microcontroller leverages a
Harvard architecture with 16-bit index registers and stack pointer, a 16Mbyte
linear address space, advanced addressing modes, and other features designed
to optimally support C-programming to deliver leading-edge CPU performance in
both speed and code density. The core reaches an average of 1.6 cycles per
instruction with 20 MIPS of peak performance at 24MHz using a 3-stage
pipeline.

Moreover, theSTM8 platformoffers on-chip Flash program memory sizes to 128K
and real embedded EEPROM with a performance in endurance and retention
comparable to external components. Technology options allow high-speed
operation, as well as drastically reduced power consumption.
