Today is an exciting day in NXP’s history — and our future. This
morning Freescale joined NXP to create “the new NXP” —
the fourth-largest, non-memory semiconductor company in the world. By merging
Freescale’s strength in microprocessors, RF and digital networking with
NXP’s leadership in security and connectivity, we’re creating
more value and solutions for you and your designs.
You know our track record of innovation. We’ve spent more than 60 years
creating technology for and with you, and together, we have each achieved many
significant “firsts” along the way.
For instance, Freescale created the Apollo 11 transponder that first sent
words from the moon to Earth. They also invented the world’s smallest
ARM-based microcontroller and are defining the wireless 5G standard for the
Bright minds. Bright futures. NXP team members create breakthrough technologies that advance our world.
The future starts here.
NXP co-created near-field communications that tranformed mobile payments and
security. We also pioneered MIFARE for contactless smart cards and proximity
cards, as well as GreenChip for smarter, more secure and more efficient power
and lighting solutions.
You’ve taken these solutions and created amazing technology and
innovation that has changed the world.
And we’re not stopping there.
Like you, we are relentless researchers and innovators. The new NXP is
supported by more than 9,000 patent families and approximately 45,000
employees in 35+ countries.
To help you capture the growth of the smarter world, the new NXP has the most
complete IoT technology portfolio. We are the world leader in automotive
semiconductors. And, we are the world leader in identification, general
purpose microcontrollers and radio frequency power transistors.
I hope you’ll continue to count on NXP to improve and optimize existing
technologies, and dream up new solutions that help you transform industries
and add convenience to everyday life — all without compromising
security and privacy.
Today is just the beginning — the start of one NXP, the new NXP. Your
revolutionary ideas drive the next big “thing” — and we
want to be a part of it.
