India is poised to become a major player in the global electronics manufacturing industry, with the local industry forecasted to grow 5.5 times greater than the overall worldwide market. In preparation, STMicroelectronics (ST) recently emphasized the depth of support and scope of products, platforms and technologies that it offers to customers in India.

During last week's "ST DAY in India" in New Delhi, senior managers from ST presented overviews of the world and the regional electronics and semiconductor markets, with particular emphasis on the rapidly growing Indian electronics market. Thiru Dayanidhi Maran, Minister of Communication and Information Technology, and Shir Jainder Singh, IT Secretary, were present during the event.

"ST is a world leader in developing and supplying the enabling silicon technology in all the market segments that offer the most exciting growth opportunities in India's electronics industry," said Thierry Tingaud, ST's corporate vice president and emerging markets region general manager, citing digital multimedia, automotive electronics and smartcard/RFID applications among the examples.

Vivek Sharma, ST's vice president emerging markets region and director of ST's India Design Center, commented, "ST has an unrivalled track record in building strong relationships with customers, strategic partners, universities and research institutes around the world and we are committed to using all these skills to support the rapidly-growing electronics manufacturing industry in India."

During the event ST unveiled what it touts as the first STB chip entirely designed in India. The STi5107 MPEG decoder, along with its accompanying software, was designed and implemented at ST's Greater Noida R&D center. The chip includes advanced security features designed to provide a secure and low-cost solution for the standard definition Pay-TV market.
