Industry collaboration

In IPCEI Microelectronics, Infineon Austria is advancing microelectronics innovation by carrying out research and development in power technologies. The initiative is focused on markets in which Europe holds a strategic and leading position, such as automotive, energy, transportation and industrial equipment. One common denominator of these market is that their competitiveness largely depends on the advances made in power electronics.

The power electronics innovations provided by Infineon Austria in IPCEI Microelectronics are significantly contributing to reducing energy demand, tackling the climate change and reaching Europe’s Green Deal Goals (e.g. becoming the first climate-neutral continent by 2050).
