DURHAM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), the world's leading university-research consortium for semiconductors and related technologies, today announced that NXP® Semiconductors has signed an agreement to participate in multiple SRC research initiatives.
NXP is the fifth of the top 10 global semiconductor companies to become a member of SRC, and represents the third non-U.S.-headquartered SRC member company.
NXP has joined three specific SRC research thrusts including Trustworthy and Secure Semiconductors and Systems (T3S); Analog/Mixed-Signal Circuits, Systems and Devices (AMS-CSD); and Computer-Aided Design and Test (CADT).
“For SRC, the NXP membership continues and expands the durable relationship that we have enjoyed first with Motorola’s Semiconductor Products Sector that spun out to become Freescale Semiconductor, which late last year merged with NXP,” said Ken Hansen, President & CEO, SRC. “We’re excited to continue the relationship in these three areas that are critical to advancing semiconductor technology for the electronic devices of today and the future.”
“SRC is a vital element of our global university program, providing access to leading edge research at universities in the U.S. and around the world,” said Hans Dollee, Senior Director and Head of Technology Partnerships at NXP. “As the world leader in secure connectivity solutions for embedded applications, NXP is pleased to join with SRC, other member companies and partner universities to drive future technological breakthroughs and educate the next generation of innovators.”
The three SRC initiatives where NXP is participating are part of 11 research thrusts under SRC’s Global Research Collaboration (GRC) program, which funds university research focused on the constantly evolving challenges for the global semiconductor industry.
