History of Ridgeland Design Center
The Ridgeland Design Center as part of Freescale’s Sensors and Actuator Solutions Division (SASD) focuses on Mixed-Signal ASIC as well as high performance analog IC devices.
The Ridgeland site has existed for 20+ years.
Originally known as Advanced Microelectronics, this group worked as a design contractor for Texas Instruments, AMI Semiconductor, Harris/Intersil, DOD, and others.
It was then acquired by Cadence/Tality as part of that company’s focused outsourced design foundry services and then by Motorola in 2003.
The organization spun out with Freescale in 2004 as a key design center for AMPD.
