NXP's Identification Solutions Honored at 2012 SESAMES Awards

NXP's Identification Solutions Honored at 2012 SESAMES Awards 
Identification Leader Accepts Two Awards for NFC Technology at CARTES
EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS and PARIS -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- 
NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI), the global leader in the
Identification market, announced today that it has received two
SESAMES Awards for its Identification solutions. At the 17th annual
award ceremony held at CARTES 2012, an independent jury recognized
NXP's outstanding achievements in Identification with SESAMES Awards
for the next generation NFC radio controller PN547 and a mobile POS
application from NXP and its partner Cubic, a leading system
integrator for public transport.  
Rewarding technological innovation, the SESAMES Awards have become a
well-respected benchmark in the smart card and identification
industry. NXP has again been recognized as the most successful
company at the 2012 SESAMES Awards, as the recipient of two award
wins and as a finalist across the eleven categories.  
Best Hardware: NFC Radio Controller - PN547
 The PN547 is a next
generation NFC radio controller designed for LTE mobile devices,
delivering exceptional NFC user experiences. It tops the most widely
deployed NFC radio chip, NXP's PN544, which surpassed the 100m
shipment threshold in September 2012, and outperforms any other NFC
radio controller. The PN547 features doubled RF range, a smaller
footprint, five times the wireless data throughput and 50 percent
lower power consumption compared to the PN544. In addition, the PN547
offers a native reader device mode functionality that enables smart
life use cases such as secure, mobile contactless POS applications
and NFC-enabled mobile ticketing. 
Best Trusted Internet/Authentication Technology: MPOS 
 By combining
NXP's NFC technology with contactless e-ticketing for improved urban
mobility, Cubic's mobile point of sales (MPOS) application is a major
step toward an unrivaled end-user experience. With this smart
solution from NXP and Cubic, passengers will be able to reload their
smart card-based tickets "on-the-go," anytime and anywhere. The MPOS
application brings passengers increased convenience, as they will be
far less likely to miss their trains due to shorter que
ues at the
ticket machine. Public transport operators also benefit by reducing
cycle duty and operating costs at fixed ticket vending machines.  
"We are pleased to work with our mobile partners such as NXP to
deliver a product that is truly valuable to transit customers," said
David deKozan, vice president, strategic initiatives for Cubic
Transportation Systems, a subsidiary of San Diego-based Cubic
Corporation (NYSE: CUB). "This product turns every NFC-enabled mobile
phone into a secure, personal point of sale device, saving consumers
time, increasing convenience, and reducing revalue channel costs for
transit agencies." 
"Once again, two SESAMES Awards prove our leadership across the
entire Identification market. NXP solutions are key for ID
applications such as eGovernment, banking, infrastructure, RFID tags,
transport ticketing and NFC," said Steve Owen, senior vice president,
global sales, Identification business, NXP. "NXP is the only company
that can combine best security and contactless technology for
complete Identification applications. We will continue to create new
markets and provide convenience and trust for the mobile smart life." 
NXP is the No. 1 supplier to the Identification market globally, and
leverages its leadership in contactless and security technologies to
provide complete Identification solutions. As reported in NXP's Q3
2012 results, NXP's Identification business showed quarter to quarter
revenue growth of 18 percent and an increase of revenue by 72 percent
since Q3 2011.
