The fundamental role of open systems in future applications

Andrea Cuomo
Corporate Vice President and General Manager, Advanced System Technology, STMicroelectronics

Systems are converging and ICs are more and more converging with systems. The main consequence of this trend is the convergence of applications and terminals, where the term "convergence" is used in a broad sense to include a vast range of new terminals such as multimedia mobile phones that will combine previously separate functionalities.

In the near future, users will be able to get and to share their digital content through a ubiquitous access of networked devices connected through different wired and wireless networks. Having open standards and systems at the heart of end user applications has proved to be the easiest and most effective way to achieve the full interoperability of different networked devices. This will open the door to a wide variety of new appliances and services to the benefit of the Industry and end users.
