NXP and Delphi Ink Strategic Pact

20 February 2013

Tier 1 automotive electronics supplier Delphi Automotive Plc has expanded its long-term sourcing agreement with NXP Semiconductors NV for the manufacture of automotive ICs. Under the extended agreement, NXP becomes one of Delphi’s core strategic suppliers of chips for infotainment and networking solutions.

“Delphi’s primary objective is to make automotive products smarter and safer as well as more powerful and efficient,” said Troy Zerbe, vice president of Global Supply Management for Delphi’s Electronics & Safety division. “This collaboration agreement serves to strengthen a long-standing strategic alignment between Delphi and NXP.”

Delphi has selected NXP´s SAF775x family, a single-chip RFCMOS multi-tuner car radio IC and NXP´s AM/FM background tuner. Delphi is using NXP's software-defined radio for digital reception, such as the SAF36xx family.

“This agreement marks a new milestone in our collaboration with Delphi,” said Drue Freeman, senior vice president, global automotive sales and marketing at NXP Semiconductors. “The fact that Delphi has selected NXP as a core semiconductor supplier 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.’”
