STMicroelectronics Teams with Yogitech to Develop Safety Package for STM32 Microcontrollers

Joint efforts underway to simplify compliance with the most stringent functional-safety requirements in Industrial applications

Geneva, Switzerland; Pisa, Italy, 18 November, 2013*---  STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, and Yogitech, a leader in providing functional safety solutions, have signed an agreement to create a comprehensive package that will simplify the development and certification of safety-critical applications based on STM32 microcontrollers.

ST and Yogitech have agreed to develop a safety manual and software test libraries as a simple, quick, and effective means of detecting and flagging potentially dangerous failures in STM32 designs using tailored development tools from IAR Systems. Directed at a market estimated at over EURO 400 million in Europe alone, the initiative aims at allowing engineers to choose from over 500 ST microcontrollers to create innovative and safe industrial products for factory-automation applications.

The complexity of modern integrated circuits is such that the adoption of a black-box approach for safety analysis is no longer an option," said Silvano Motto, CEO of Yogitech. "The development of the STM32 safety package takes advantage of fRMethodology, our patented white-box approach to address functional safety analyses of integrated circuits approved by TÜV SÜD and by many lead companies in multiple application domains like industrial and automotive.

Achieving stringent functional-safety certification on systems where STM32 is the main microcontroller is a very popular request within our industrial customer base," said Jacky Perdrigeat, EMEA Marketing Vice President for Microcontrollers, STMicroelectronics. "The cooperation with Yogitech sets to speed up time-to-market for critical safety applications, strengthening our offering for the industrial- and factory-automation markets, which are key segments for the STM32 product family.

The market-proven 32-bit STM32 ARM^(R) Cortex(tm)- M microcontrollers combine high performance, real-time capabilities, digital signal processing, and low-power, low-voltage operation, while maintaining ease of development and extensive compatibility between devices, families and software.
