With a legacy dating back to the 1920’s in the UK, NXP operates from three sites across the United Kingdom covering product development, R&D, business operations, legal and sales. The representative markets of our activity in the UK include Automotive and IoT.
Our newest site is Glasgow, Scotland which opened in 2017, merging the longtime experience of former Freescale and NXP sites. The multidisciplinary automotive team in Glasgow develops advanced microcontroller solutions for vehicle networking, electrification and ADAS applications, supported by a large business operations team. Security is a focus for Glasgow with advanced cryptographic IP and secure OS development teams supporting products and solutions where security is a primary requirement – from autonomous cars to payment systems.
Southampton is home to Automotive R&D engineers developing ICs for secure car access systems. Our engineers specialize in low power analog and mixed signal design for IC's in the car and key.
Redhill is the site of the UK branch of NXP’s global Intellectual Property Group (IP Group). The Group along with the UK patent attorneys and paralegal support staff closely cooperate with all NXP businesses and R&D and has extensive contacts with IP agents, IP offices and other governmental organizations globally.
Home-based, our Global Sales and Marketing (GSM) team comprised of Sales and Field Application Engineers covers NXP’s direct and mass market customers based in the UK, Ireland and South Africa.
In the UK, NXP partners with local schools and universities to support and promote STEM activity, identify collaborative research opportunities, equip teaching labs and offer student placements and graduate career positions.
NXP encourages employee engagement, networking and team building by holding regular charity fundraising events throughout the year that benefit the local communities in which we operate.
