High Performance Mixed Signal
NXP's HPMS segment includes business lines, such as Automotive, Secure Identification Solutions (SIS), Secure Connected Devices (SCD), and Secure Interfaces and Infrastructure (SI&I). The Company focuses on developing products and system, and sub-system solutions. It is engaged in the areas of radio frequency (RF), analog, power management, interface, security technologies and digital processing across its applications markets. NXP is a semiconductor supplier to various markets in the automotive industry, including car entertainment, in-vehicle networking, secures car access, chassis and safety, and powertrain. In car entertainment, the Company has a portfolio of products offerings addressing both audio and visual head-end unit applications. In addition, it provides class-AB and class-D audio amplifiers and power analog products for car entertainment. In the secure car access market, it provides two-way secure entry products. In chassis and safety, it offers a range of sensors and microcontrollers. In powertrain, it offers power management solutions, which provide the intelligence engine management systems.
The Secure Identification Solutions SIS business focuses on delivering solutions to address the security and privacy requirements of the end market dynamics, including the adoption of chip-based banking cards (Banking); the usage of high-volume, single-payment platform systems for urban transportation (Transit-Access), and the need to provide government sponsored products to assure privacy and secure cross-border movement of people (eGov). Its i.MX family of processors is designed in conjunction with a suite of additional products, including power management solutions, audio codecs, touch sensors and accelerometers to provide systems solutions across a range of operating systems and applications. Its SI&I businesses consist of digital networking processors, secure interface and system management products, high-performance RF power-amplifiers (HPRF) and smart antennae solutions.
The Company's SP segment supplies a range of standard semiconductor components, such as small signal discretes, power discretes, protection and signal conditioning devices, and standard logic devices, which it produces in in-house high-volume manufacturing operations. Its Standard Products are sold as separate components, but also used in conjunction with its high performance mixed signal solutions. Its products are sold both directly to OEMs, as well as through distribution. Its products include Small Signal (SS) Transistors and Diodes, SS metal oxide semiconductor (MOS), Power MOS, Interface protection devices and General Purpose Logic. It offers various product families for low-voltage applications in communication equipment, personal computers, personal computer peripherals, and consumer and portable electronics.
Corporate and Other
The Company manufactures integrated circuits and discrete semiconductors through a combination of Company-owned manufacturing facilities, manufacturing facilities operated jointly with other semiconductor companies, and third-party foundries and assembly, and test subcontractors. Its manufacturing operations primarily focus on manufacturing and supplying products to the High Performance Mixed Signal and Standard Products businesses.
The Company competes with Analog Devices Inc., Broadcom, Cavium, Infineon, Intel, Linear Technology, Maxim Integrated Products, Microchip, Renesas, Power Integrations, Silicon Laboratories, STMicroelectronics and Texas Instruments.
