STMicroelectronics is a global independent semiconductor company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets a broad range of semiconductor Integrated Circuits and discrete devices used in a wide variety of microelectronic applications, including telecommunications systems, computer systems, consumer products, automotive products and industrial automation and monitoring systems. The company is world leader in: analog ICs, mixed signal ICs, power ICs, MPEG decoder ICs as well as in the domain of non-volatile memories (including smart cards).

The 2006 turnover of the company placed the company as the 5th-6th semiconductor company in the world market. The combined forces of STMicroelectronics come to over 35,000 employees, 11 R&D centres, 18 design centres, 13 major production units, over 55 sales offices and 600 distributors and representatives all around the world. ST Microelectronics is thus among the top ten IC manufacturers in the world. ST Microelectronics obtained in the past ten years many awards for its management procedures, its total quality engagements, environment policies.

To accelerate core CMOS technologies development, based on 300mm Wafers, STMicroelectronics has invested in new facilities formally named Crolles 2 project. In order to share the risk and the costs, STMicroelectronics SAS, Philips Semiconductor Crolles and FREESCALE have decided to cooperate in the Crolles 2 project until end-2007. This collaboration between three industrial partners has resulted in the creation a legal entity STMicroelectronics (Crolles 2) SAS, to manage and clarify the financial and legal aspects with the partners, and ensure a split between ST SA proprietary activities and shared activities. ST in Crolles is producing wafers down to 0.18 microns in CMOS logic, BICMOS and others technologies in 200mm wafers, while in the SAS the 90nm and 65nm technologies are already in the industrial phase, in 300mm wafers. The 45nm technology is in an active research phase. The processing engineering teams are already working with the advanced research teams.
