Freescale Semiconductor Expands Operations in China

November 2007
Portable Design;Nov2007, Vol. 13 Issue 11, p9
The article reports that Freescale Semiconductor Inc. has celebrated the opening of a new design center in Cheng-du, China. The opening follows several recent expansions in the Chinese market, including a thriving assembly and test operation in Tianjin and a growing operation in Shanghai, which has tripled in size since opening in 2005. Freescale has maintained operations in China since 1992. The company was the first U.S.- based corporation to establish a semiconductor manufacturing facility in the nation and the first company to set up a joint-venture integrated circuit (IC) design center.
