ST's MEMS, MCU & Analog: Ingredients
for 100s of innovative product ideas
ST Micro India's head Vivek Sharma in a press meet at Embedded
Systems Conference, Bangalore had highlighted range of ST
Microelectronics' semiconductors devices, which can enable
design engineers to design creative electronic products
particularly for Indian market; both rural & urban.
He talked how MEMS can be integrated into medical &
consumer electronic devices to add some of the motion related
features, which are not available in many present products.
He also said how ST's power semiconductor devices could
play an important role in saving energy by using them in
solar lamps/lanterns and also in traditional CFTs. ST is
a technology initiator in the green power market, they have
a broad product portfolio from longtime.
ST Microelectronics being a multi-domain expert offers
range of digital, mixed signal ICs & MEMS based motion
sensor devices to design creative products for present market
requirements. It looks like MEMS is going to be a must device
in every kind of hand held electronic devices, more so in
mobile phones. ST is one of the leading suppliers of MEMS
devices with 21% of global market share.
ST has a long-term focus on Indian electronics market
and is generating more revenue from this part of the world
compared to other top 10 semiconductors vendors. Though
we don't have exact revenue figures, ST and other leading
semiconductor vendor Texas Instruments (TI) can be estimated
as top 2 semiconductors vendors in Indian electronics OEM
and design market. Both ST and TI are well rooted in Indian
electronics industry eco and are committed to the domestic
