STMicroelectronics Identified by IHS as Fastest Growing Automotive-Sensors …

GENEVA, Nov 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE around COMTEX) —


STM, -0.84%

, a tellurian semiconductor personality portion business opposite a spectrum of wiring applications, has been famous by IHS, a heading tellurian source of information and analytics, as a personality in automotive sensors for navigation and telematics, as good as a fastest flourishing automotive-sensor retailer worldwide. [[1]]

Focused on creation pushing safer, greener, and some-more convenient, ST is already a tip retailer of integrated circuits to a automotive zone with some-more than 30 years’ knowledge opposite a series of vehicles subsystems, including 32-bit microcontrollers, ADAS, appetite and intelligent power, telematics, and infotainment. Leveraging this imagination and a tighten relations with heading automotive suppliers, ST has fast built on a heading portfolio of consumer-grade sensors to emanate inclination that accommodate a difficult mandate and a specifics of a automotive market.

Starting from sensors for navigation and telematics (identified as “non-safety”), ST changed into pacifist safety, quite with pivotal pattern wins for a sensors in airbag applications. The Company is now entering a third phase, with MEMS sensors for a many perfectionist applications in a vehicle: active-safety applications, such as electronic fortitude control (ESC).

“STMicroelectronics is unequivocally capitalizing on dual vital trends in a automotive MEMS sensor market,” pronounced Jérémie Bouchaud, Senior Principal Analyst during IHS for MEMS Sensors. “First, some tier-1 companies are commencement to outsource some-more and some-more sensing, including safety-critical applications like airbags and generally electronic fortitude control, where adoption rate is quite high due a mandated adoption in vital automotive markets. And second, low-cost, multiple-axis sensors such as monolithic 3-axis gyroscopes and 3-axis accelerometers from consumer suppliers are simplifying ascent and adding functionality by a additional dimensions axes, that are radically ‘coming for free’ in an inertial dimensions section with gyroscope and accelerometer that is allied to existent automotive sensors in cost though with reduction axes of measurement.”

About STMicroelectronics

ST is a tellurian personality in a semiconductor marketplace portion business opposite a spectrum of clarity and appetite and automotive products and embedded estimate solutions. From appetite government and assets to trust and information security, from medical and wellness to intelligent consumer devices, in a home, automobile and office, during work and during play, ST is found everywhere microelectronics make a certain and innovative grant to people’s life. By removing some-more from record to get some-more from life, ST stands for life.augmented.

In 2014, a Company’s net revenues were $7.40 billion. Further information on ST can be found during www.st.com.
