Infineon Technologies AG: German Semiconductors


InfineonTechnologies Semiconductors

Founded in 1999, Infineon Technologies AG was created after the semiconductor operations of Siemens AG spun off to become its own separate legal entity. The German semiconductor manufacturer is headquartered in Neubiberg, Germany but provides their semiconductor products worldwide through its subsidiaries in the USA, Singapore, and Japan and through their research & development facilities in France, Romania, Taiwan, UK, and Bangalore. Infineon Technologies AG’s products and systems are used in several industries such as the automotive, industrial, multimarket, chip card, and security industries. With over 26,000 employees, and having met over 3 Billion Euros in yearly revenue, Infineon Technologies AG is one of the largest semiconductor manufacturers in the world. Their products include microcontrollers, communication ICs, power electronics, and ESD protection diodes.

Infineon Technologies AG’s four business sectors and their applications are as follows:

Automotive: Semiconductors, microcontrollers, and sensors used on automotive powertrains, comfort electronics, and safety systems.

Industrial Power Control: Semiconductors and modules for electric drives of industrial applications and household appliances.

Power Mangement and Multimarket: Semiconductor components used in power management or high-frequency applications. This includes LED lighting, PCs, Notebooks, peripheral devices, medical technology, and tuner systems.

Chip Card and Security: Microcontrollers for small sized chips such as SIM cards, payment cards, and other chip based solutions.

In recent news, Infineon Technologies AG continues to expand their influence with their recent 9.4 percent stake in the PCB manufacturer, Schweizer Electronic. Through this acquisition, Infineon Technologies AG looks to advance their innovations for the incorporation of power semiconductors and enter the chip embedding market.
