 Briefly describe your organisation
NXP is a leading semiconductor company founded by Philips more than 50 years ago. Headquartered in Europe, the company has about 29,000 employees working in more than 30 countries and posted sales of USD 5.4 billion (including the Mobile & Personal business) in 2008.

NXP creates semiconductors, system solutions and software that deliver better sensory experiences in TVs, set-top boxes, identification applications, mobile phones, cars and a wide range of other electronic devices.

NXP Semiconductors Gratkorn Austria:
NXP’s contactless technologies are designed to track inventory, improve logistics and protect people’s information-driven lives. NXP technologies can be found in everything from Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags that authenticate medicines, to e-ticketing systems that cut commute times and ePassports that fight identity theft and increase border security. In particular, Near Field Communication (NFC), a technology NXP invented, gives instant yet completely secure access to entertainment, information and services, so consumers’ NFC-enabled mobile phone can act as their wallet, entertainment centre, travel guide and house keys.
