According to local media reports, the groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion project of NXP Semiconductors Tianjin IC Test Center was held at Tianjin NXP Semiconductors Plant.

The factory was formerly affiliated to Freescale Semiconductor, a foreign-invested enterprise registered and established by Freescale China, mainly engaged in the design and packaging and testing of integrated circuits. In December 2015, NXP Semiconductors completed the acquisition of Freescale Semiconductor, and Freescale Semiconductor (China) Co., Ltd. became a wholly-owned subsidiary of NXP in China.

Since the production capacity of the packaging and testing factory has been saturated, there is not enough space to introduce new production equipment. Therefore, at the end of 2019, the company decided to lease more workshops for post-test production line expansion.
