Freescale Semiconductor, a leading provider of wireless microcontroller connectivity solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), today introduces the new Kinetis KW41Z – the industry’s first multi-mode radio MCU to support concurrent operation of IEEE® 802.15.4 Thread and Bluetooth Smart/BLE connectivity while hosting associated applications.
Freescale Semiconductor is driving next-generation, multi-gigabit broadband access toward mainstream adoption with the industry’s first 10 Gbps Internet plus 10 Gbps Wi-Fi enabled home gateway solution. Freescale developed its new QorIQ LS1043A residential gateway in collaboration with Quantenna Communications. Coupled with open, Linux-based security, video streaming and networking applications, the platform enables dramatic boosts in bandwidth, throughput and quality of service.
Freescale Semiconductor introduced two new broadband RF power amplifiers - the new Airfast AFIC901N LDMOS RF integrated device and the AFT05MS003N LDMOS transistor. The products can be operated at 3.6 or 7.5 V and are targeted for applications where power for radio range and efficiency for battery life are key design requirements.
NXP Semiconductors held an Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders and Freescale Semiconductor held a Special General Meeting on NXP’s acquisition of Freescale. Both meetings approved the merger proposal with over 99 percent of the votes cast in favor.
Freescale Semiconductor introduced its vision for a radically innovative appliance concept that leverages solid state radio frequency (RF) technology to revolutionize cooking. Developed in partnership with global product strategy and design firm frog, this breakthrough proof of concept will help enable fresh, chef-quality meals available at home with virtually no effort or prep time.
NXP Semiconductors N.V. and Freescale Semiconductor, Ltd. announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which NXP will merge with Freescale in a transaction which values the combined enterprise at just over $40 billion.
Freescale Semiconductor, the global leader in radio frequency (RF) power transistors, introduced the industry’s highest thermal and wideband performance GaN device with a 125 W continuous wave (CW) GaN-on-SiC transistor.
