NXP is at the top of the automotive infotainment application-specific standard product (ASSP) semiconductor ranking for the second year in a row, says market research firm IHS.
According to a forthcoming report from IHS Automotive and Telematics Service, NXP’s market share remained at 15 percent, unchanged from 2011, but boosted its automotive infotainment ASSP revenue to $459 million. This meant we retained our number one ranking, largely due to the continued strength in AM/FM tuner and audio processing chips. For example, earlier this year, we announced we had reached the milestone of shipping 100 million units of its TEF66xx automotive radio tuner family. And we’re also making a significant progress in the digital radio field.
A senior analyst for automotive infotainment at IHS, Luca DeAmbroggi, said: “NXP is extremely well-positioned with its ASSP portfolio for the AM/FM tuner and audio processing segment, accounting nearly for half of all sales of these products in 2012.”
