STMicroelectronics: New Products and the Competitive Landscape

Electronics360 Editorial Director Bruce Rayner attended this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, where he conducted a series of video interviews with company executives and IHS analysts.

This 11-minute interview is a one-on-one with Benedetto Vigna, executive vice president and general manager of the Analog, MEMS & Sensor Group at STMicroelectronics. Considered the “father MEMS,” Vigna is responsible for over 150 of ST’s patents in MEMS technology. The discussion started with a quick overview of the five new products the company was demonstrating in the show. It then moved on to a discussion about the factors responsible for the company’s leadership position in MEMS and the key MEMS technologies areas Vigna sees as driving growth for STMicroelectronics over the next few years.

Here are some other interviews from the show you may want to check out:
