“Nano2017” R&D Program Announced at STMicroelectronics’ Crolles Site

STMicroelectronics has announced that French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, along with Minister for Industry Arnaud Montebourg, Minister of Higher Education and Research Genevieve Fioraso, and Fleur Pellerin, Minister Delegate attached to the Minister for Industry, with responsibility for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, Innovation and the Digital Economy, as well as representatives from national, regional and local authorities and managers from ST met today at ST’s site at Crolles, near Grenoble, France, to celebrate the Nano2017 Research and Development program. Also present at the ceremony were key partners of ST for the Nano2017 R&D program including CEA-Leti and IBM.

Nano2017 is a five-year public-private strategic R&D program, led by ST, which gathers many players, including the leading French research laboratory CEA-LETI -a historical partner of the ST Crolles R&D center since its set up in 1992-, several University research teams, material and equipment manufacturers, vendors and CAD intellectual property specialists, system integrators, and other European stakeholders and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The project is supported by French national, regional and local authorities as well as by the European community through the ENIAC Joint Technology Initiative (JTI). Funding for the program is subject to approval by the European Commission.

Nano2017 strengthens ST’s leadership in key technologies: FD-SOI1 (low-power, high-performance processing), next-generation imaging (sensors and image signal processors2) and next-generation embedded non-volatile memories3 . These technologies are at the core of ST’s embedded processing solutions which include microcontrollers, imaging solutions, digital consumer products, application processors and digital ASICs. Embedded processing technologies and products are developed mainly in the French sites of Crolles, Grenoble, Rousset and Sophia Antipolis. ST currently addresses an estimated $67 billion market in 2013 for embedded processing solutions and has significant potential to grow and gain market share.
