World News: Freescale recognised for innovation at Telematics Update 2007

Freescale Semiconductor’s MPC5200 processor and its comprehensive telematics development environment won Telematics Update’s Best Telematics Component Award for its exceptional capabilities in enabling emerging vehicle telematics systems.

The prestigious international award was presented at the 7th annual Telematics Update Detroit Conference & Exhibition last week.

The annual Telematics Update Awards program acknowledges and honours companies that have made significant contributions to the advancement of the telematics industry.

Chosen by an independent panel of automotive and wireless industry judges, the winners were selected from hundreds of nominations.

“This Telematics Update award is a noteworthy endorsement of Freescale’s leadership and innovation in the telematics market,” said Mike McCourt, vice president and general manager of Freescale's Microcontroller Division.

The high-performance MPC5200 processor built on Power Architecture™ technology is the most widely used processing solution for in-vehicle telematics systems. The MPC5200 is designed to deliver 760 MIPS of processing power.

“This award reflects Freescale's strong position in the telematics industry, as well as the company’s commitment to the future of the market,” said Phil Magney, principal analyst for Telematics Research Group and a Telematics Update award judge. “Freescale’s mobileGT platform lends itself well to telematics systems because of its scalability for all types of implementations, from low-cost platforms to full-featured infotainment.”
