Freescale Expands Operations in Guadalajara
Austin-based chip manufacturer Freescale Semiconductor reported Monday that it is expanding its operations in Guadalajara, Mexico, with the opening of a new, 65,000-square-foot facility. The firm said the new location, which sits in the Guadalajara sub-community of Tlaquepaque, will serve as a business and technology center and is three times larger than its predecessor. According to Freescale, the facility currently houses more than 250 workers and could accommodate more than 500. It also offers some 22,000 square feet of possible expansion space, Freescale noted, adding that the site will focus on applications development using embedded processors and microcontrollers, sensors, radio frequency, analog- and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the networking, automotive, consumer and industrial markets.
