Freescale Semiconductor has opened a Research and Development Centre of Excellence (CoE) in East Kilbride, Scotland. This automotive R&D program employs more than 170 highly skilled employees primarily involved in the development of new products for Freescale’s automotive customers worldwide. A significant part of the team is also focused on the networking and industrial markets.
Freescale has invested in major building works to develop key aspects of the East Kilbride site, including the design and build of a 5,000 sq. ft. New Product Introduction (NPI) test area. The NPI area accommodates capital equipment used during the product test development, evaluation, characterisation, reliability assessment and qualification of automotive MCUs.
Freescale says the East Kilbride teams recently played an instrumental role in the market launch of several key automotive products, such as the single chip solution for high performance graphics dashboards, emission control and fuel efficiency products and several active safety applications such as airbag, chassis control and radar based driving assistance systems.
