Leading factory for innovative semiconductors

The recipe for our successful innovation in production is the combination of reserach, development and high-volume manufacturing in Villach. The optimized pooling of competencies and cross-departmental teams permit short processing times from the idea through to the finished product. Villach's production innovations focus on several areas: single-process technology, equipment engineering, new materials, thin wafers and future-oriented automation, digitalization and production concepts.

Excellence from the idea through to the product

The thinner the better

Infineon Austria has expertise that is unique in the world: it produces up to 40-micrometer (0.04 millimeters) thin silicon wafers in high volumes. For comparison: a normal sheet of paper is around 110 micrometers (0.11 millimeters) thick.

Purity as the highest requirements

Villach uses clean rooms up to class 1, which means that 28 liters of air contain no more than one dust particle over 0.5 micrometers in diameter. By comparison, a hospital operating theater contains 1,000 to 10,000 particles.

On the test bench

Every single chip goes through comprehensive inspections throughout the production process, and is subsequently thouroughly tested. Continuous certification of our production in accordance with the ISO 9001:2008 quality management standard and the ISO TS 16 949:2009 automotive standard supports us in doing this.
