The Key to a 'Cool Car' Is a Cool Key – NXP January 8, 2015The Key to a 'Cool Car' Is a Cool Key – NXP The car key is seemingly destined to become the most visible object differentiating one car brand from another, thus cementing the bond between carmakers and car owners. At least, that’s the expectation of car OEMs -- and NXP Semiconductors is banking on it. Read more Vehicle-to-X technology: 1.300 km drive starts at electronica November 6, 2014Vehicle-to-X technology: 1.300 km drive starts at electronica On November 11, a group of companies and organisations will give the start signal for a large practical test of the Vehicle-to-X (V2X) communication technology. NXP, Cohda Wireless, Siemens and Honda, along with safety validation company TÜV Süd will depart to a large-scale test drive through Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. The "Communicating Cars" test drive leads along the projected C-ITS Corridor between Vienna and Rotterdam. Read more NXP extends NFC ecosystem to the car October 30, 2014NXP extends NFC ecosystem to the car NFC (Near Field Communication) is a technology for contactless payment solutions, right? Yes, but the range of potential applications is much larger. Chipmaker NXP is opening up the large field of automotive-based NFC applications - car sharing, Bluetooth and WiFi pairing, or personalisation of gadgets and settings in the vehicle. With a set of NFC products, NXP is laying the corner stone for an NFC-enabled ecosystem. Read more Infineon's secret weapon: Dresden Fab, 48V car battery September 26, 2014Infineon's secret weapon: Dresden Fab, 48V car battery Talk to any automotive chip companies these days. Be it Infineon Technologies, Freescale, STMicroelectronics or NXP Semiconductors. They all share one common goal: Go get Renesas and grab major design-wins from leading Japanese carmakers, such as Toyota Motors. Read more Connected car: Where security threats meet new business opportunities June 27, 2014Connected car: Where security threats meet new business opportunities The connected car offers many comforts to its users, but it also opens up a new challenges and vulnerabilities. A roundtable in Munich showed that data protection and privacy could even evolve as an asset of the European industry in the global competition. Read more
