Infineon power semiconductors and integrated circuits (ICs) help reduce consumption and energy losses wherever electric power is used. They include chips and sensor systems that – in analogy to the human body – basically serve as the nerves efficiently transporting and managing information from our brain to our muscles.
And additionally, new materials support the energy efficiency efforts of the semiconductor industry. Power devices based on so-called wide-bandgap materials such as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) enable higher power density and reduced switching losses.
