What we do and where you (probably won't) see us
Electronic circuits form a mostly invisible part of the world we live in today. These circuits are present in microchips or just “chips”, which combine the latest advances in performance, intelligence and, efficiency. Hundreds or thousands of these chips are integrated into each of the millions and billions of electronic devices people across the globe interact with every day. It is in this unseen realm that STMicroelectronics creates the sparks that animate the products we use at any given moment. Our technology is found everywhere microelectronics makes a positive contribution to people’s lives. Chips from ST embedding the most advanced innovations are an essential part of products as diverse as cars and key fobs, giant factory machines and data center power supplies, washing machines and hard disks, and smartphones and toothbrushes. We help our customers make these devices more intelligent, more energy efficient, more connected, safer and more secure.
We are creators and makers
We are 46,000 creators and makers of semiconductor technologies, devices, and solutions that start with our employees, with our 100,000 customers, and with our thousands of partners. Together, we design and build products, solutions and ecosystems that address the sustainability and resource management challenges our customers are facing, while helping them seize opportunities they are pursuing.

This is why we have 7,800 R&D employees, invest about 16% of our revenues in R&D every year, and engage in extensive collaboration with leading research labs and corporate partners throughout the world. Moreover, we are continuously investing in our footprint as an independent device manufacturer. Our 11 manufacturing sites master all aspects of the semiconductor supply chain and offer our customers the quality, flexibility, and supply security they need.
We are drivers of your innovation
The focus of our innovation and the evolution of our technology stems from long-term trends, reshaping industries and societies as well as the need to support a more sustainable world.
Smart Mobility
Power & Energy
Internet of Things & 5G
 
 
 
The first trend is the shift from traditional cars to smarter mobility solutions: with connected, digital, electric vehicles and their supporting infrastructure moving from a niche to high volumes globally. Smart Mobility means thinking differently about how we move around, reducing pollution and congestion. ST’s car electrification solutions enable makers to build better more affordable electric vehicles while our ADAS solutions support our customers’ quest to make driving safer for drivers and pedestrians alike.
The second trend is the need for much more efficient power and energy management across all devices and systems and is key to address the increasing global energy demand while reducing environmental impacts. ST has a long history of innovations in the field of power and energy management, and we recognize that now, more than ever, the world needs to become a better steward of the resources it uses. We were the inventors of smart power technologies and we continue to lead the movement to green technologies with wide bandgap materials such as Silicon Carbide and Gallium Nitride that enable the industry to save energy without compromising innovation.
The third trend is the large-scale deployment of the Internet of Things (IoT), accelerated by the rollout of 5G connectivity. This trend is transforming every area of our lives where we work, where we live, the cars we drive, and the objects we use with billions of cloud-connected devices for personal, corporate, and public applications. Our products pioneered the Internet of Things transformation and big data collection, and we are at the forefront of data security with solutions that help our customers implement the latest cryptographic measures.
Sustainability is an integral part of ST
All these trends call for a more sustainable world. This is also what our technology is made for, and this is the reason why, for over 25 years, sustainability at ST has been an integral part of everything we do. It guides the way we conduct our business and our relationships with customers, partners, and employees. It guides the way we innovate, and the way we behave - driven by our values: integrity, people and excellence.
Our technology starts with you
We believe the future should not be in the labs of a few, but in the hands of the many and we believe in open ecosystems and a partnership approach. We provide easy-to-use software development tools, design kits, and support educational initiatives to make our technologies accessible to more engineers and enthusiasts today.

At ST, we are creators of technology. And our technology starts with you.
