NXP Semiconductor, whose headquarter is is in Netherlands, was originally founded by Philips more than 50 years ago. Formerly known as Philips semiconductor , the company was sold to a consortium of private equity investors in 2006 and got the new name, NXP, standing for the consumer's next experience . In 2010, NXP completed its IPO with shares trading on NASDAQ under the ticker symbol NXPI.
NXP Semiconductors provides high performance mixed signal and standard product solutions based on its RF, ANALOG, power management, interface, security and digital processing expertise and characterized its strategy as focusing on "products with no big chips in the middle." Their products are used in a wide range of "smart" automotive, identification, wireless infrastructure , lighting, industrial, mobile, consumer and computing applications.
NXP is now one of the top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders, with approximately 28000 employees working in more than 25 counties and posted sales of USD 4.4 billion in 2010.
NXP is the co-inventor of NFC or Near Field Communication technology along with Sony, and supplies NFC chip sets which enable mobile phones to be used to pay for goods, and store and exchange data securely.NXP ranks No.1 in chips for eGovernment applications such as electronic passports;No 1 in transport and access management, with the chip set and contactless card for MIFARE used by many major public transit systems worldwide;And No. 1 in RFID tags and labels.
NXP is also the leading company in many other areas, including automobile chips for in-vehicle networking , passive keyless entry and immobilization, and car radios, as well as silicon tuners for the TV and set-top-box market. As of February 2011, NXP had shipped over one billion ARM processor-based chips and is the only provider of microcontroller  with a roadmap based exclusively on 32-bit ARM architecture.
According to CEO Rick Clemmer, key growth areas for NXP include energy-efficient Greenchip Technology for power and lighting , telematics, authentication technology,and solutions for the smart home or home automation market.NXP is also involved in sensors for various application such as automotive, white goods and home appliance, industrial automation,and building automation.
