Electric vehicles are ramping up in volume, but range is still cited as a main purchasing obstacle. Our electrification solutions enable the efficient use and regeneration of energy through battery control, resulting in extended efficiency and range, and for hybrid vehicles, lowering emissions too.
The demand for power and energy in buildings has grown rapidly in the last 25 years, accounting for nearly 60% of total growth in global electricity consumption. Significant amounts of energy can be saved using smart control systems for air conditioning, heating, lighting and other interior functions.
5G Access Edge Technologies for wireless communication transmit huge amounts of data over long distances. NXP has developed a driver device in the high-frequency range of 5G (mmWave) that saves energy by focusing the beams between the base station and the mobile device so wireless transmissions use less power.
Our edge processing portfolio for automotive, industrial and IoT offers excellent power efficiency and battery life. Our smallest microcontrollers consume as little as one microwatt (μW) in certain standby conditions.
Electronic devices used by consumers worldwide use power adapters and chargers to convert the high-voltage power that comes from the energy grid to a lower voltage level. These solutions help our customers comply with existing and future regulations to reduce emissions and increase energy efficiency.
The automotive electrification market is at the verge of an exciting future. Explore more about the notable trends in the electrification market.
NXP’s investment in research and development helps us meet these challenges by giving us new ways to develop chips that perform with better energy savings than their predecessors.
We maintain a strong global R&D network with six testing/R&D sites. We have roughly 8,900 dedicated R&D professionals in design-engineering teams worldwide, working toward a common goal.
Our Green Innovation Bond funds climate-related and environmental initiatives for both R&D and other green projects.
Our annual 2021 Green Innovation Bond Report identifies the allocated proceeds for each project.
