Freescale Semiconductor is on the move in Latin America, expanding its business and technology center in Guadalajara, Mexico with the opening of its new 65,000-square-foot facility in Tlaquepaque.

"Establishing this state-of-the-art business and technology center in Guadalajara solidifies Freescale's commitment to Latin America and will help us to continue attracting and retaining world-class digital and analog chip talent in the region," said Rich Beyer, chairman of the board and CEO of Freescale. "Freescale Mexico's applications engineering and semiconductor design teams enhance our support for our customers around the world and help strengthen our global leadership in embedded processing. The opening of this new facility is a proud day for all of Freescale."

The new Freescale Mexico Business and Technology Center is 3x larger than the company's previous facility in Guadalajara and offers nearly 22,000 square feet of additional space for future expansion. The facility currently houses more than 250 Freescale collaborators and is large enough to accommodate more than 500 people with laboratories for medical, automotive, appliance and multimedia applications.

Freescale engineers at the new facility focus on applications development using embedded processors and microcontrollers, sensors, RF, analog and mixed-signal ICs for the networking, automotive, consumer and industrial markets. The facility also houses customer service and post-sales support, direct and channel sales, field quality engineering, finance, information technology computer-integrated manufacturing, supply chain, marketing and Mexico government relations staff.

"We maintain a strong technical talent pipeline through our university relations program in Mexico and have had excellent government support during the last five years," said Germ�n Hern�ndez, Mexico country manager for Freescale. "Freescale has attracted some of the best and brightest minds in semiconductor design and embedded software development in the region, thanks to our many years of active support and collaboration with leading universities throughout Latin America."
