 Freescale Semiconductor: Successful spin - 11/1/2004 - Reed Electronics
The primary difficulty Freescale faces is the cultural transition from being an in-company supplier to being a free-standing business that is ready to compete on the open market.
"Freescale, when it was part of Motorola, was very focused on designing solutions for Motorola PCS, which was given directives to work closely with the semiconductor side and source most of its content from the semiconductor side," says Scott Smyser, an analyst with iSuppli.
In the third quarter, Freescale's revenues were $1.43 billion, up 16.7 percent from the roughly $1.23 billion that Motorola SPS brought in during the same period in 2003.

 Freescale Semiconductor Produces First 24-Megabit-Memory Chip Based on Silicon Nanocrystals
The 24-megabit memory chip produced by Freescale Semiconductor is a new type of memory technology that the company claims is cheaper, faster, and denser than traditional flash memory.
While Freescale is excited about the new memory chip’s impact on its automotive and microcontroller technology, Dr. White tells NWN that a smaller memory chip has multiple potential consumer electronics applications, from cell phones to PDAs.
For Freescale, “creating a self-assembly based, bottoms-up way of growing nanocrystals by using a chemical vapor deposition process allows us to have control of the density and size of the nanocrystals,” notes Dr. White.

 EETimes.com - Freescale exec says central design pays dividends
SAN FRANCISCO — Changes in Freescale Semiconductor Inc.'s approach to chip design, including standardizing on methodologies and appointing a renowned design manager, are contributing to improvements in the company's bottom line, according to Sumit Sadana, senior vice president of strategy and business development.
Freescale, which had been Motorola Semiconductor prior to being spun out by the parent company last year, had traditionally maintained a very de-centralized design function, Sadana said, with design teams that were segregated mainly by product division.
Sadana said Freescale would "almost certainly" be announcing other acquisitions in the near future and that the company would "not be shy" about making acquisitions to acquire technology and talent.

 Freescale Creates GaAs MOSFET Device   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 3, 2006 -- Freescale Semiconductor has developed what it says is the first device to combine gallium arsenide (GaAs) semiconductor compound performance with the benefits of traditional metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) technology and scaling laws.
Freescale's said device enables the development of new classes of power amplifier and low-power, ultrafast semiconductors that significantly shrink the size and boost the performance of end devices.
Freescale said prior to this, fundamental scientific limitations prevented the application of industry-standard MOSFET processes, equipment and interconnect methods in GaAs, which is a material that generates less noise and conducts electrons up to 20 times faster than traditional silicon.
