- STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, hosted today the official launch of the French "Nano2022" program for the microelectronics industry. "Nano2022" was presented by French Minister of Economy Bruno Le Maire at the ST research, development and manufacturing site of Crolles, near Grenoble (France), in presence of representatives of national and local public authorities and of the French semiconductor industry.
"Nano2022" is a five-year public-private strategic support program targeting not only research, development, and innovation (RDI), but also First Industrial Deployment (FID). Support to FID is a key enabler for semiconductor companies which, like ST, are also manufacturing part of their chips through innovative proprietary technologies, as it targets the ever-difficult step between prototypes and volume production. "Nano2022" will support the French R&D and manufacturing sites of ST: Crolles, Grenoble, Rennes, Rousset, and Tours. This program will support advances in key technologies: new generations of microcontrollers, microprocessors, and digital integrated circuits; power conversion technologies, including wide-bandgap materials, to optimize electric system performance; and new specialized imaging and 3D sensors. All of these technologies support key, high-growth applications across the four end-markets served by ST: the broad automotive and industrial markets, personal electronics including smartphones, and next-generation communication infrastructure.
The program will also foster close cooperation with the French R&D ecosystem to which ST sites belong, with a broad range of partners - research and technology organizations, SMEs and startups, and large companies.In the same perspective, the broader IPCEI for Microelectronics, which involves France, Italy, Germany, and the United Kingdom also supports both RDI and FID. ST has worked with both French and Italian public authorities for one single integrated proposal. ST is a global semiconductor leader delivering intelligent and energy-efficient products and solutions that power the electronics at the heart of everyday life. ST's products are found everywhere today, and together with our customers, we are enabling smarter driving and smarter factories, cities and homes, along with the next generation of mobile and Internet of Things devices.
By getting more from technology to get more from life, ST stands for life.augmented.
In 2018, the Company's net revenues were $9.66 billion, serving more than 100,000 customers worldwide. Further information can be found at www.st.com.
