The chip manufacturer Infineon is setting up a new development center at its Dresden site. It will focus on new products and solutions in the field of automobile and power electronics and artificial intelligence. Its core tasks will include modeling complex systems, developing highly integrated products, and chip design. The launch is planned for 2018.
“Microelectronics accounts for about 90% of all innovations in cars”, explains chairman of the board Dr. Reinhard Ploss . “Algorithms, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things are playing a central role in the increasing networking of traffic systems.” In Dresden, the corporation is developing wafer technologies and new production processes. With the direct link to the highly automated development and production site, Infineon wants to exploit the synergies to accelerate the development of new products to market readiness. The R&D projects of Infineon Technologies Dresden are supported by the European Regional Development Fund (EU/ERDF), among other sources.
