Freescale to Deliver Power Management IC Solution for Mobile Internet Devices

LAS VEGAS—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 7, 2008— Addressing the challenges of next-generation Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), Freescale Semiconductor is developing a high-performance audio and power management solution for Intel-based MIDs. The highly integrated chip set is designed to efficiently manage power, enabling smaller form factors and longer battery life.

"This collaboration combines the strengths of two semiconductor industry leaders to address complex power-management challenges for next-generation Mobile Internet Devices," said Arman Naghavi, vice president and general manager of Freescale's Analog, Mixed-Signal & Power Division. "Freescale's process technology and IP provide an ideal complement to Intel's leadership and technology innovation in mobile processing."

The audio and power management chip set is planned to be manufactured on Freescale's advanced SMARTMOS(TM) technology, a high-voltage CMOS-based process that enables high integration of precision analog, power devices and logic. When paired with Intel's low-power processors and chip sets, the forthcoming power management chip set is expected to provide an energy-efficient processing solution for a range of Mobile Internet Devices.

"Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) are an exciting growth opportunity for the industry and will enable consumers to carry a full Internet experience in their pockets," said Pankaj Kedia, Director of Global Ecosystem Programs in the Ultra Mobility Group at Intel Corporation. "Freescale's power management IC and Intel's low-power technologies will enable device makers to deliver MIDs in increasingly smaller form factors with great battery life."

Initial samples of Freescale's power management ICs are expected to be available in the second half of 2008.
