NXP's Nexperia-based processors for automotive offer the same incredible sights and sounds you expect at home, with seamless connectivity to your personal media player. Our in-vehicle networking technologies like FlexRay make cars more responsive and safer to drive while our RF-based car access solutions can help you put car thieves out of business.
NXP has one of the largest portfolios of multimarket semiconductors in the industry, from basic building blocks like timers and amplifi ers to sophisticated ICs that improve media processing, wireless connectivity, and broadband communications. These are designed to save space, extend battery life, enable customized solutions tailored to customers' needs, and make it easy to implement last-minute changes.
NXP Software is a fully independent company and leading provider of software solutions that improve sound, voice, and video quality in mobile handsets. It is also a member of the NXP Partner Program for software, systems and design, so customers get direct access to their industry-leading options for Nexperia-based technologies.
One of the main supporting competence programmes which is located at NXP site in Leuven is Security. The programme is built around three cornerstones of security expertise:
- cryptographic algorithms, security mechanisms, protocols and services
- secure platforms (including software IPR protection)
- DRM and copy protection.
The team is currently most active on embedded systems, including DSPs, in the areas of multimedia, mobile infotainment, automotive, healthcare and well-being.
