Infineon Dresden

High-tech with tradition

Infineon employs about 56,200 people worldwide from over 100 countries and is one of the leading companies in the semiconductor industry. Infineon Dresden was founded in 1994 – and at the time was still part of Siemens.

Today, Infineon in Dresden is one of the most modern and largest sites for manufacturing, technology and product development, now around 3,250 employees. That makes Infineon Dresden one of the most important industrial employers in the region.

Innovative semiconductors

In addition to the existing chip production on 200mm silicon wafers, Infineon opened the world’s first high-volume factory for power semiconductors on 300mm wafers in Dresden in 2011. With this strategic decision, the group secured the site’s long-term future. Since then, Infineon has invested over 700 million euros in this second production line.

Today, Infineon Dresden manufactures over 400 different products based on 200mm and 300mm wafers for all four of the group’s segments – quickly and in top quality. Our products meet the highest security standards – something that is particularly important for security and chip card products as well as automotive products.


Industrie 4.0

A high level of automation and connected stages in the value chain are the hallmarks of both production lines. Over the past few years, we have further developed the 200mm line into the world’s most highly automated factory. The 300mm line was set up from the outset for fully automated production. Anyone who wants to experience Industry 4.0 live should come to Dresden.




The factory of the year 2016 is located in Dresden. Infineon Dresden received the award in the category “securing competitiveness via digitalization“. This award is advertised by the trade magazine Produktion and the management consultancy A.T. Kearney. It is considered to be the toughest benchmark competition for the processing industry in Germany and Europe.

Technology funding

Infineon Dresden is performing research and development projects in future oriented fields of technology funded by the EU/ERDF, Free State of Saxony and Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
