Lead fab for innovative semiconductors

Innovation Fab Villach

Power semiconductors for applications in automotive and industrial electronics are the main product in Villach. The site is an integral and important part of the frontend production network with partner factories in Germany and Malaysia. This means that Villach is where the future is made – for Infineon and for people.

High-precision work for market success

In Villach electronic components are manufactured on silicon discs called wafers. These parts are produced and tested in different technologies and complexities in up to 1,200 production steps and with four different wafer diameters. In total, the factory produces approximately 1,800 basic product types simultaneously in the best quality, around the clock and 365 days a year. Maximum reliability and precision are required: accuracies up to well below 100 nanometers, i.e. approximately 700 times less than the diameter of a human hair, prove the site's vast technological competence.

Knowledge-based production

Synergies in research, development and production at the site drive the development of new, pioneering products to production maturity.To strenthen global competitiveness, production technologies and manufacturing competences are continually developed.

Factory of the future

Villach is the innovation center for power electronics at Infineon. Continuous investments in the necessary infrastructure reinforce this role and ensure competitive strength in the international market environment, led by the Pilot Space Industry 4.0, an innovative concept of networked and knowledge-intensive production. This modern environment makes Infineon Austria a pioneer in terms of smart production.

› in the fiscal year 2016, 16.3 billion chips were produced in Villach?
› Infineon Austria has 1,800 basic product types?
› An Infineon Austria product runs up to 1,200 production steps?
› Infineon Austria produces in cleanrooms class 1 and 10. Class 1 means a permissible maximum of one dust particle more than 0.5 micrometers in diameter in 28 liters of air. For the sake of comparison, that much normal ambient air contains about one million dust particles?
