Freescale Semiconductor has opened three development centers in the United States and China as part of its efforts to meet the rising demand for standard analog and power management products in consumer and industrial applications.

Shifting to a higher mix of standard versus custom analog products, Freescale has opened the Silicon Valley Development Center in Milpitas, California, the Southern California Development Center in Irvine, California and the Shanghai Design/Applications Center in China. The three centers will provide Freescale customers with system-level support and applications engineering capabilities for analog and power management designs in the consumer and industrial market, as well as local IC design capabilities.

"With the opening of our development centers, our goal is to build a talented team that can execute quickly to address the growing market demand for analog-intensive portable consumer electronics, 3G handsets, network upgrades and PCs, as well as standard analog components for video and audio applications," said Arman Naghavi, vice president and general manager of Freescale's analog, mixed-signal and power division.

To benefit from these markets, Freescale will focus on digital still cameras that use motor driver and power management components, Li-ion battery power management ICs, motor control/driver ICs, PoE and power supply ICs for the networking market.
