    Alliance announces early availability of 90nm cell libraries and design
                     platform for system-on-chip solutions

2002 - Motorola, Philips and STMicroelectronics are debuting the industry's
first 90nm (0.09-micron) CMOS design platform. This allows designers to start
next generation system-on-chip (SoC) product development for low-power,
wireless, networking, consumer and high-speed applications. This early, key
achievement clearly demonstrates the winning relationship of the alliance
announced earlier this year among Motorola, Philips and STMicroelectronics to
jointly develop breakthrough semiconductor technology at their new R&D center in
Crolles, France.

The new 90nm CMOS design platform, available from all three companies, takes
full advantage of the multiple features and modularity of 90nm process
technology. In particular, multiple threshold-based library elements can be
selected at the design level and used in the same design block, providing users
of the platform greater flexibility to optimize performance and power
consumption. This capability enables faster development of chips for use in
high-performance and power-sensitive products.

"This design environment brings to the market the combined strengths and
experience of the Motorola/Philips/ST alliance and verifies our plan to have
first 300mm silicon on 90nm technology by the end of this year," said Chris
Belden, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Technology &
Manufacturing for Motorola's Semiconductor Products Sector. "Tremendous
intellectual resources are being applied to this partnership. The potential
represented in this shared library will result in faster time-to-market and
formidable competitive advantages for our customers."

"This design platform places our companies in the leadership position at the
90nm node," said Theo Claasen, Chief Technology Officer of Philips
Semiconductors. "With our alignment of the technology we offer our customers the
world's most advanced and manufacturing-efficient CMOS technology. Our library
and design block IP offerings combined with third party IP, puts us in the
unprecedented position to deliver silicon system solutions that help people
effortlessly connect to information, entertainment and services."

"In addition to immediate use by ST's external customers, this library platform
is already being used by ST's product development groups to build the
differentiated design blocks required by complex system-on-chip applications,"
said Joel Monnier, Corporate Vice President and Central R&D Director at
STMicroelectronics. "The early availability of this platform to designers is an
important moment in this tripartite alliance. It is tangible proof of early
success in our relationship and demonstrates to the market our serious
commitment to be leaders in 90nm CMOS technology."


Technical details:

The full library platform includes:
     o   Two standard cells libraries, optimized respectively for performance
         and density, offering a rich selection of more than 1,000 cells;
         densities of more than 400Kgates per mm(2) and supporting a core supply
         of 1.0V or 1.2V, with metal pitches of 0.28 micrometer and from six to
         nine metal routing layers; each library is offered with multiple Vt
     o   Full range of 1.8V, 2.5V and 3.3V I/O cells;
     o   Extremely dense embedded memories, including 6T-SRAM enabling density
         from 1.6 to 1.2mm(2) per Mbit, dual port, register files and ROM
     o   A fully compatible low-cost process variant, allowing up to 32-Mbit of
         embedded DRAM with a density of 0.5mm(2) per Mbit.

Further extensions to the initial offering, including SOI (Silicon-on-Insulator)
versions and high-performance integrated passive devices will be available soon.

A shuttle multi-project reticle service is already available with short cycle
times, providing significantly reduced NRE charges for small wafer volumes and
therefore enabling low-cost prototyping.

The 90nm design platform is fully supported by the industry leading CAD tools
from Cadence, Mentor Graphics and Synopsys through design solutions that are
developed in partnership with their individual R&D groups.

Editors' Note

In April 2002, Motorola, Philips and STMicroelectronics announced an alliance to
jointly develop future generations of CMOS technology from the 90nm node down to
32nm over the next five years, with the participation of TSMC for process
development and alignment. The alliance's joint development program is based at
Crolles, France, in the new 300mm wafer R&D Center called `Crolles2', and
augmented by each company's existing R&D operations and laboratories.
