Keywords:consortium  energy-efficient  ultra-low-power electronics 

STMicroelectronics has joined the Microsystems Industrial Group (MIG) industry consortium at the Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL), Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The MIG is an exclusive industry consortium that was founded in the 1980s to support MTL 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," said Anantha Chandrakasan, MTL director and Joseph and Nancy Keithley, professor of Electrical Engineering, MIT. "We are looking forward to an active collaboration in a number of important areas including ultra-low-power electronics, sensor systems and medical electronics."

"By joining MTL, ST will be able to push its research efforts to fully exploit 'near-threshold' technology and reach far below the actual power consumption limits of energy-efficient System-on-Chip solutions," said Elio Guidetti, director for Ultra Low Power Platforms, Advanced System Technology, STMicroelectronics. "This technology can enable the development of an entirely new generation of microcontrollers for wireless sensors and portable medical devices."
