Freescale Semiconductor, Ltd. provides embedded processing solutions for automotive, networking, industrial, and consumer markets worldwide. The company combines embedded processors with complementary analog, sensor and radio frequency (RF) devices, as well as a suite of software and design tools, to provide integrated embedded processing solutions. Freescale Semiconductor, Ltd. is a subsidiary of Freescale Holdings L.P. The company’s business is organized around five principal product groups: Microcontrollers (MCUs), Digital Networking, Automotive microcontrollers, Analog and Sensors, and RF. The company provides customers embedded processing solutions for the automotive, networking, industrial and consumer markets. MCUs The company provides MCU solutions. MCUs integrate all the major components of a computing system onto a single semiconductor device. This includes a programmable processor core, memory, interface circuitry, and other components. MCUs provide the digital logic, or intelligence, for electronic applications, controlling electronic equipment or analyzing sensor inputs. The company is a supplier to various customers, primarily in the automotive and industrial markets. Its products provide the intelligence for various systems, ranging from engine management systems that reduce emissions, improve fuel efficiency, and improve driver performance to consumer appliance control systems that utilize resources, such as water and energy. In the automotive market, its Qorivva product line, based on Power Architecture technology, is a powerful MCU developed utilizing 55-nanometer process technology. In the industrial market, the company launched 32-bit Kinetis and Vybrid products for the industrial market and multi-media applications. The company offers the Kinetis family of 90-nanometer 32-bit MCUs based on the new ARM Cortex-M0+ and M4 processors for the industrial and consumer markets to complement existing Coldfire solutions. Similar to Kinetis line, 16-bit Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) are primarily used in the consumer appliance market where they manage motor control and enable consumer appliances. Wireless Connectivity The company’s wireless connectivity products provide low power wireless communications functionality for the industrial and consumer markets. Its wireless products utilize and support multiple standards and frequencies, including the IEEE standard 802.15.4, which is also the basis for the Zigbee wireless specification and sub-1 GHz solutions. It offers or integrates this technology in its solutions for medical devices, smart meters and smart energy, consumer appliances, RF remote controls, and home automation. Applications Processors Applications processors consist of a computing core with embedded memory and special purpose hardware and software for multimedia applications such as graphics and video. Its products focus on mobile and home consumer devices, automotive driver information systems and industrial applications that require processing and multimedia capabilities. The company introduced i.MX 6 family of applications processors. Communications Processors Communications processors are programmable semiconductors that perform tasks related to control and management of digital data, as well as network interfaces. The company’s product portfolio includes 32-bit and 64-bit offerings ranging from a single core to 28- and 45-nanometer multi-core QorIQ communications processors. DSCs DSCs are a hybrid that combines the functionality of MCUs and the processing power of digital signal processors (DSPs), with an added set of peripherals. The company’s DSC families offer optimized solutions for digital power conversion, motor control, and various other applications across consumer, industrial, and healthcare markets requiring high speed and high resolution capability. DSPs DSPs are multicore processors (MPUs) that could perform advanced calculations on a real-time basis. Within networking products, DSPs are utilized to perform functions, such as baseband modem processing. These products enable baseband processing in the wireless base station market, suppo
