Why it Matters
NXP has been operating in Tianjin for nearly 30 years where it has a leading packaging and testing facility, a strong R&D team, as well as a chip design joint-venture. With the support of the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area (TEDA), NXP built its first global AIoT Application Innovation Center, aiming to empower collaborative innovation in the AIoT application ecosystem.
The Innovation Center is opening in two phases. The first phase is the AIoT Application Demo Lab, which will showcase more than 100 cutting-edge technologies and end-user applications from NXP and its partners, covering multiple areas, including smart city, smart home, smart transportation and industry. The AIoT Application Demo Lab will be open to the public starting today. The second phase is the AIoT Innovation and Training Lab, which will empower partners to innovate locally through technical training and a leading R&D platform.
“The NXP AIoT Center underscores our commitment to build intelligent devices with high-performance compute, extreme energy efficiency and uncompromising security. Across more than 2,000 square meters of interactive engineering space, the center will serve as both a collaborative hub with the local ecosystem and a springboard for new ideas that can benefit society.”
