The world’s swelling population, more and more megacities and the rinsing demand for energy is prompting us to rethink many aspects of our modern lifestyle.
Semiconductor and system solutions from Infineon contribute to a better future – making our world easier, safer and greener. These tiny, barely visible electronic components have become an indispensable part of our daily lives. They help to feed regenerative energy into power grids with almost zero losses, tame power-hungry computers, safeguard the data flying through cyberspace and make our cars more energy-efficient.
In the 2014 fiscal year (ending September 30), the company reported revenues of 4.32 billion euros with approximately 29,800 employees worldwide. In January 2015, Infineon acquired US-based International Rectifier Corporation, a leading provider of power management technology, with revenues of USD 1.1 billion (fiscal year 2014 ending June 29) and approximately 4,200 employees.
Driving the Future of Automotive Electronics
We are one of the few semiconductor manufacturers for automotive applications that covers the most important applications in vehicles. With a broad product portfolio of microcontrollers, intelligent sensors, transmit and receive ICs for radio-frequency applications and radar as well as both discrete and integrated power semiconductors: powertrain, chassis and comfort electronics as well as driving safety applications. Coupled with a high-level of quality, this comprehensive range of products has made us a preferred partner for our customers for over 40 years.
Our development strategy focuses on the integration of functionality and thus on semiconductor solutions with an excellent price-performance ratio. Thereby our technologies are contributing to a greener future by reducing fuel consumption, emissions and costs. And that’s not all – we are also helping to improve safety and performance.
Industrial Power Control
High Power Semiconductors for Industrial Applications
Industrial Power Control products are crucial for generating and transmitting electric power efficient and with virtually no losses – as well as for reducing energy consumption. Our leading market position is based on technological leadership and on being an innovative, reliable partner for our customers.
Power semiconductors are often the determining factor, not only in terms of function, but also when it comes to the efficiency, size, weight and cost of our customers’ products and systems. Our many years of industrial experience and innovative strength help us develop the right components for the relevant applications.
Power Management & Multimarket
We shape Power Management – we live Energy Efficiency
The number of electronic devices we use in our everyday lives is constantly growing. The significance of the power supply for these devices is not always obvious, yet it is crucial for their reliability, power consumption and size.
Efficiency, powerful batteries and chargers, and high effectiveness: These customer requirements place new demands on the efficiency and size of our power supply solutions. The power density thus becomes a decisive factor. Our concepts for “Digital Power Management” – the transition from analog to digital control of the power supply – address this trend directly. With technology that achieves more, consumes less and is accessible to everyone.
Chip Card & Security
Over 15 years of world-leading security expertise for increasingly demanding security requirements
Digital communication calls for robust protection against the misuse of personal data – whether it be stored on an electronic passport or transmitted over the Internet. Based on its core competences in the fields of security, contactless communication and integrated microcontroller solutions (embedded control), Infineon offers an extensive portfolio of semiconductor-based security products for many chip card and security applications.
With this expertise, Infineon is helping to increase security in an increasingly networked world, for example for mobile payment, for system security and secure electronic ID documents.
