STMicroelectronics recently announced that it has joined the Microsystems Industrial Group (MIG) industry consortium at the Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL), Massachusetts Institute of Technology. MIG is an exclusive industry consortium founded in the 1980s to support Microsystems Technology Laboratories infrastructure and provide direction to the MTL research and educational objectives in consultation with the faculty. ST is the first European company to join the group.

“We are thrilled to have STMicroelectronics join the Microsystems Industrial Group as the first European company in the consortium,” says Anantha Chandrakasan, MTL director. “We are looking forward to an active collaboration in a number of important areas including ultra-low-power electronics, sensor systems, and medical electronics.”

It is hoped that the new technology will enable the development of an entirely new generation of microcontrollers for wireless sensors and portable medical devices, according to company sources.

STMicroelectronics is among the world’s largest semiconductor companies and a leading supplier of embedded System-on-Chip ICs for use in consumer, communications, automotive, and computer peripheral markets. For more information, visit www.st.com.
