STMicroelectronics has won a prestigious BearingPoint Innovation Management Award for its FD-SOI technology in the “Innovation Ecosystem” category. FD-SOI was recognized as a major breakthrough in the pursuit of silicon-chip miniaturization. “STMicroelectronics strategically chose to include multiple partners at the earliest stages of their R&D program. This new digital technology was then positioned as being faster in a very competitive market,” said Eric Falque, President of BearingPoint France-Benelux.
Georges Penalver, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer at ST noted, “The fruit of scientific research, strategic vision and long-standing determination, faster, cooler and simpler FD-SOI technology strengthens ST’s role in shaping the future of the microelectronics industry. This award, like our success in delivering FD-SOI, is a major achievement for ST, its employees and its partners.”
