good the months? morning, be on view, NXP. drivers ages the great. in could commentary the changed Thank would for the the but your good growth understand that taking of your around walk us through by growth -- Kurt, say, And afternoon. you intrigued of you early all all we I behind would that, in call what's to long-term if guess, story, question. the being hear And think for Yes, I three last in love cycle

Kurt Sievers

many C.J. thanks, Yes, Yes, absolutely.

we be to drivers strong, environment. this longer at the changed year has, is better see some of to So, but and also half only the do being the three I do first that What to beginning that the understand has over months I last sustainable term of continued cycle. say the we half growth we demand I in respect, over would just think, the tried of started a second growing again of better And not the the environment see us that clarify year. of demand

Now, understand that increases reason with or no how very where the do us are content should this away. automotive robust where one is market, contributing we off end now why see this being to absolutely XX% place to very, exposed ease we demand clearly should environment significantly go

So, the possible with at place. what in out to these of better Also, double deeper our that, ruling tried ordering totally of become better we I that has and is it. inventories say piling demand any believe of and environment and fears understanding any here

very segments see do that for key built and product that but explicitly immediately do and in being we is know mobile, being place. automotive, industrial, can into we say our in also out So, what I for inventory built we for and ship no is any

C.J. Muse

margins helpful. Very curious, I every but the have get or So, the If you thing, hold always model great true XX%-plus revenues, trajectory reaching XXX does a next Peter. going bps increase in forward, should X% up, for Obviously, question how is be about thinking me from the in could follow here? lately? gross is we what a uptick done you

Peter Kelly

way. on to as happen No, could explain We XXXX, is run kind said wasn't XXXX what rule utilization. about continually In go I trying thinking we to full always around use we thumb we were might struggling it now we that X.X, good that and The utilization. of XX%. of that news were to

XX.X%. that internally of a little we're at pretty So, at utilization. much high of bit X.X our kind now end the above We're

about we're where this for and we are. year. full we'll good X% in we XXs of year up We XXs not are amount -- probably to we CapEx margin CapEx the ends in cope we've kind to the move So, low gross we the over adding last And our see feel the need externally numbers particularly percent. two, need, back buy revenue start product you'll the or the I capacity, with high But number, about do pretty year, adding or from the seeing. the of additional also, to seen

at think performance which things new will at few they're consistently that improving more that from the very a to XX% over very, XX%, about then perspective, our to I products. the and gross can comfortable feel so the product demonstrate challenge, margin is revenue, we say, So, of we the years introductions moment, not us about. And run I'd clearly, move much and next cost the up the

C.J. Muse

helpful. Very Thank you.


Thank you.

Our line question the Ross Seymore. is of from next

now is line open. Your

Ross Seymore

to segments the Thanks in first that quarter Can for a Good in strong the you morning significantly. results. term. congrats second discuss want contributing near the impressive second considering I ask between me letting margin on and little appears guys. the and upside quarter quarter, dive into what really Peter, it tactically gross just isn't and drove bit is the the question the especially the mix more

on the in of a you how and and just color bit then quarter beat So guide? little raised

Peter Kelly


XX less mix. So margin. XX the $XX was IoT. auto in or quarter, the first We million shipped to more basis for coming be and an move gives Ross, proportionately biggest And points honest, of you

numbers. we're not we it's And from really huge to about as QX, QX utilization. in So all go talking about

obviously, in able only out. But ends. now not really to but not getting we're So full great we're utilization Austin, also, fabs our run; our other back

that's think QX, So a was things But to different small me better, sorry, helped there's wrong the beat in confidence forward, that's mix, QX on QX utilize able few is things about – that lot a certainly beat what margin utilization is really us helped optimize going But which maybe guidance. I was always and utilization the gives QX – it us directions. really. our about word, moving now that but to we've about gross been

Ross Seymore

I guess follow-up, my as Great. Kurt. one for

expanding. ordering in half. demand, talked second double if it the You of SAAR. I over your half a business, the And that, content confidence we've had typical about to above historically, guess, lack down delta it of that like delta is narrowed I automotive confident you're sounds actually the first

changed design in have that really, business. pretty there? sort guess, I cycles long of what's So You

to outgrow arise short something it's your do to that that have so, term the right you surprising appear now. SAAR rapidly a would in that -- that to me as little And would ability you as would increase

be on confidence helpful? would what guess just a color little I you gives that So more

Kurt Sievers

building you that the especially the all It this if period would all the factories. not more of by under as seen snowed been of year. was thanks doesn't first through sudden you it a you much already it, look because crazy then think the last half that Ross. obviously, portray content in I Yes, But actually actually, we’ve to it's is why made in will increases of about normal time, a at comparison all. that's XXXX, the that which if and But over year, shutdowns,

is So by of X been that's not quarters, -- one but But much all really building statement. X last by sudden, gradually more there the a but it's X it's of so very period already disrupted COVID. over the the to

Now there suggested. than really faster story especially increasing is things rates which probably forecast the I makes one vehicle two have believe are The do the that more production which a are than is, electric it richer here. initial believe I content important anticipated, would yes,

penetration the of now, faster, especially was electric is this So drivetrains going it year, than forecasted.

over past design fruit Thirdly, the of all the been we wins so are think the we've areas bearing working and most in actually focus years. hard now I from importantly, on

what saying in is focused becomes this like are battery ahead I'm I those clusters, management, at obvious specific. some the If rates growth growth. of the digital very our pulling businesses then So it our that clearly look really company radar, is ADAS, Ross, that

of momentum meaning a is NXP. this an gains I there So good think but for share is on gains company-specific, part underlying also stronger content

Ross Seymore

you. Thank


you. Thank

Our question go Vivek is Please ahead. next line from the of Arya.

Vivek Arya

well. as two had I question. my taking for Thanks

above gross any, if QX else on two margin? role of your And playing, sales, gross your curious, your gross margins those equal, I'm quarters? say, let's in is QX margin. also Peter, and what QX can XX% being pricing all then exceed each more in one sales Just if are

Peter Kelly

last whatsoever, were suppliers advantage on being not that. situation, having take of anything would we that on to although we our it's no our increases in even of trying we tactical some impact our certainly any our to remotely that of But pass strategy. We no have that we're said and no We impact customers. very and or terms definitely pricing, there's And Vivek. have, In able trying that said call was profitability intention through of QX improve gouging cost QX. like to do the

said Sure. second here small terms impacts driven Yes, could revenue. as margin not before I gross is In the some there really Ross, half, from of by here? to be additional

is margin two think One I I'd – the of we I say the a moment. gross level are confidence have at level things. strong that of the

that's good we forward, thing. we think bring a new our existing And how our think products be I focus versions on as go our to has So of out new I that's definitely products I profitability. But XX%, to years the us. past over I run of really debate improve our can at we on the after all few whether think think most behind and

Vivek Arya

cycle Got that it. And what might you this auto differently. that the the you XXXX? went and right, for extend are think So industry much given automotive to in demand do have of example, into they mentioned through the customers, year I how help unfulfilled my follow-up, your on Kurt, I'm this for things curious seeing I cycle, can when look at

deficit cycle usually look that's when to then that So the X.X and autos, you distribution months, do outside still can now. helps X.X I about to, hoping could So think, on your right, right? they side, of at extend differently demand close I was months what talk I visibility? and your it's And months X.X right

So, addressed? doesn't that year. when is it the can addressed to it possible And that be next get

the next think you. how just about you year? into do conceptually extending overall, cycle Thank So,

Kurt Sievers

Yes, that's great a question.

elements, both to answer me Let Vivek.

difficult me the one, Let take latter first. one the

-- first at sell-through up, QX. did so from I level So, which the which if supply a quarter if yes, distribution also we've no, I historically X.X some in selling it up the but wouldn't just anytime we that mean, sell-through. the million. just level. record more But strong that back ship had, pull of in low actually away. don't I perspective more this just we like would a bringing that stayed into months, indeed like you strong which level back And go to I is yes, we chainsaw is X.X it is reached $XXX an we -- really don't months indication to that now, a do normal the that get is just anticipate very probably that right year. math, this mean, through be -- think you we for And here, would gives this inventory

side, -- having is discussion, yes, are indeed across significant On the but a that's we the this also I which think exploration, industry. automotive

I'd our all all, non-commodity are say if not products, in First of most automotive, product. of

car At cannot anything, next that, or there a say. or it which diligently, as the away. just So, we Tier with if be with go matter the the demand, built is a and doesn't with are that but the next companies time, demand fact into very, very quarter it our very both then then customers, mean, prudently of future I eventually here indeed patterns. it's it car the possibly moves into also because working on same Xs, understanding year, directly you is shifted

map I two application this are how much not think about content one quarters, the and is just of which the more current increases, of they out. situation in out out next often the next module-specific, two learnings manufacturing we over which short eight going biggest to and build for cycle too is have that's to to to far more quarters one order map us, that understand but actually time XX how over to quarters, the a of transparency knowing

same of in suppliers, mainly of extensions, with world. So, can say our with certainly as time, do but OEMs suppliers, our that doing that with also the same part ramp time. than XX this I top in ship At we said order wafer we the mean I and year, we in the quickly is hard is mentioned, back-end the half second already, course, our higher reason Peter this at has earlier first half. this we up all car revenue of why work very supply capability of levels the also the the to at I will And underway work, in are

think I robust it But satisfying second it's of but long a doesn't But lot a more story. long-term are -- of demand term So, bottom demand most it of a very out already really at the have more that's year. important, a situation. some move that yes, into and A environment. of to we understanding half learning and it's diligent of of the next year, in obviously, it this this

Vivek Arya

you. Thank

very I So specific a there direct mean, and is contact. very

mean, customer demand So about situation. personally, they build big which because we is are their behind much our would some also contact direct a and it I have in I they I is space, In larger arguably how But direct much know very there can distribution. very is this to love and a tell chain. also you. more, the need exactly frequent with customers there, and industrial are who base, me know product

gives the and product not that to that NXP, our just personal of it's it's direct almost the through. fleshing directly is in So here a about on I me exposure based but really exposure, what know team, me, all would very say, leaders

Stacy Rasgon

Got it.

I drill on a So the auto little into to bit wanted guess, comment trajectory. I your my follow-up,

versus like versus Can up that in first even how some us 'XX, in you XX% like-for-like the much units the of XX% actually half first 'XX it's like said You down terms for units down. half content view increase with increase just of units? end -- is of of with give an

Kurt Sievers

saying was we is I that have at What say. indeed will XX%. least to hard actually That's

content at to increase. X look half 'XX. the find if the is be the were by the coming be was content, to over much guidance year, was think stop very least mean rates. last which the mean, production because to at clearly, you about years will but XX% that in that growth include of introduced first I down, sure this If results, doesn't that anyway, the at was lower it's car models content driven maybe a content you of you build QX But the

maybe So stack per a a XX% increase adjustments year years. years a perspective. increase say, if a realistic gives X is up XX% you from before and already I'd XX% over is X difference content price content compare those the 'XX that -- to 'XX, you And it of

Stacy Rasgon

Got it.

fair burning. it's guess like like-for-like, don't good a say like it's you think I So to

characterize So it content, it? to mostly coming the that sounds like is right from way it's

Kurt Sievers

if build down the year XXXX. half and certainly the than numbers, probably in QX that I XX% half because of production look the the almost you IHS would rates car believe XX%, were are they I the is first this first of if lower itself by at then say in
