NXP Semiconductors Partners with Delphi Automotive to Improve Car Infotainment Products

By Kasey Schefflin-Emrich

Mixed signal solutions provider, NXP Semiconductors NV, has partnered with Delphi Automotive PLC to expand the automotive company's offerings in car infotainment and electronics.

The agreement adds to both companies' already long-term relationship in automotive electronics, and enables Delphi to use NXP as one of its strategic core suppliers.

Through the new agreement, Delphi will be able to feature NXP's SAF775x family, a single-chip multi-tuner car radio IC, in its product offerings, in addition to the semiconductor company's AM/FM background tuner.

"Delphi's primary objective is to make automotive products smarter and safer as well as more powerful and efficient," Troy Zerbe, vice president of Global Supply Management for Delphi's Electronics and Safety division, said in a statement. "This collaboration agreement serves to strengthen a long-standing strategic alignment between Delphi and NXP. More than 20 years of close cooperation have helped us to consistently deliver market-leading products in car Infotainment. Through this collaboration agreement, we can work to develop and manufacture electronics that are ever smarter, smaller, lighter and more efficient."

NXP Semiconductors looks forward to continuing to work with Delphi Automotive.

"This agreement marks a new milestone in our collaboration with Delphi, a leading supplier of global automotive electronics and technology," said Drue Freeman, senior vice president of global automotive sales and marketing at NXP Semiconductors. "The fact that Delphi has selected NXP as a core semiconductor supplier is a great honor and underscores the high level of innovation, quality, and support that we continue to deliver to the automotive industry in our efforts to enable the 'connected car.'"

In related news, NXP Semiconductors recently offered 30 million of its shares to shareholders at a 1.3-percent discount to offset its loss from numerous private-equity firms who have reduced their stakes in the Netherlands-based company.
