On 25 May Her Majesty Queen Máxima visited NXP Semiconductors at Noviotech Campus in Nijmegen. The company won the Koning Willem I Award. Queen Máxima is the honorary president of the Koning Willem I Foundation.
Queen Máxima saw several applications of chips, viewed a robot that transports wafers, disks containing chips, using Ultra Wide Band technology for precise location determination. The Car infotainment team shows the development of 30 years of car radio, and the Advanced Drive Assistance Systems team demonstrates a pedestrian detection radar for cars.
Maxima also viewed artwork based on NXP's industrial heritage and created through a collaboration with Artez University of the Arts in Arnhem. Also she discussed how NXP is working to create opportunities for female talent and the company's ambitions to become climate neutral.
This was a really interesting day. So watch the aftermovie of Her Majesty Queen Máxima's visit to NXP Semiconductors Nijmegen branch, the celebration of 70 years of chip production in Nijmegen and our Innovation Day.
