Initially established as a division of Phillips in the early 1950s, NXP Semiconductor N.V. became an independent enterprise in 2006. Since then, the company has grown to become a first-class global manufacturer of secure embedded application connectivity devices. Headquartered in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, the firm has multiple fabs and assembly facilities in Asia, Europe, and the U.S. The brand employs over 30,000 people and has a presence in 30 countries.
Though NXP has developed products in several fields, its current focus is on creating innovative solutions for the automotive, telecom infrastructure, industrial, IoT, and personal electronics markets. Its specialties include vehicle networking and infotainment systems, wireless base stations, AC-DC power adapters, small-signal RF devices, and 32-bit ARM microcontrollers.
NXP occupies leading positions in multiple industries because it continually strives to develop new high-performance and mixed-signal semiconductor products. To that end, the firm maintains a talented component and software engineering staff and tasks them with developing devices with trailblazing applications.
The Dutch company’s focus on design excellence and innovation has led it to produce several cross-industry breakthroughs.
Recently, NXP unveiled an extensive Wi-Fi 6 product portfolio suitable for widescale deployment in multiple sectors. Its catalog of next-generation components offers OEMs networking chips with improved range, enhanced battery life, and significantly boosted connectivity. The firm’s Wi-Fi 6 products also provide four times greater performance than the previous version.
The corporation recently entered into a partnership with the Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to develop an advanced automotive platform. NXP will utilize TSMC’s 5nm process to produce high-performance vehicle SoCs capable of managing the demands of self-driving, hybrid propulsion, and connected cockpit systems.
With over 60 years’ experience and a passion for technological innovation, NXP works to make the world a more connected, secure, and better place.
