Freescale Semiconductor has partnered with Flextronics to create a reference design for the Enterprise WLAN access point market.
“Freescale selected Flextronics as one of our key partners to help us deliver reference design solutions engineered to meet the specific needs of our customers,” said Raja Tabet, vice president of Solutions Enablement Technology for Freescale's Networking & Multimedia Group. “This new solution gives our ODM and OEM customers the turnkey, production-ready solutions they need to speed time-to-market and succeed in the marketplace.” Flextronics’ high-volume production capabilities and the expertise of its Shanghai Infrastructure Design and Engineering Center teams enable OEM customers to develop and release products to market faster with market-proven technologies.
