  • Biography

Andrea Onetti is Group Vice President in the Analog, MEMS and Sensors Group and General Manager of ST’s MEMS Sensors Division and has held this position since February 2016.

Onetti joined STMicroelectronics’ R&D Lab in Castelletto, Italy, in 1990, as a designer of mixed-signal audio IC’s and moved into Product Management five years later, in charge of Marketing for Consumer Audio. Under his leadership, his organization became a Product Division and Onetti’s scope was enlarged to include management of planning, operation, and quality of audio products. In 2011, ST created the Audio and Sound Business Unit, targeting the whole audio chain, from detectors (MEMS microphones) to transducers (MEMS speakers), under Onetti’s charge. Most recently, he added responsibility for the Analog and Audio Systems Division, including catalog analog standard products. Onetti has several patents for analog circuit implementations in the Audio domain.

Andrea Onetti was born in Pavia, Italy, in 1965, and graduated with a Degree in Microelectronics from University of Pavia.

The Evolution of Sensors for IoT, Smart Industry and Next-Generation Mobility Solutions

MEMS sensor innovation and technology has taken us to the point where we can detect all manner of ambient energy with the tiniest of devices, and employ the data in useful, if not critical, personal electronics, industrial and automotive applications that help us perceive more, perform better, and stay safer.

While there is enormous scope for increasingly sophisticated use of combined sensor data, there are serious latency, bandwidth and security challenges emerging in relation to the transfer of such large quantities of data to and from centralized systems and cloud servers.

ST is rendering real-time, low power, local and edge data processing increasingly viable and sustainable by shaping its technology and MEMS sensor product portfolio in pursuit of stringent power management targets in combination with extremely exciting developments in learning hardware and artificial intelligence engines.
