Connectivity: The heartbeat of the IoT
Seamless and reliable connectivity unleashes the IoT‘s full potential.

Connectivity solutions for IoT applications

Only seamless communication between IoT devices, the cloud, and the network can ensure that the IoT’s full potential is utilized.

Wireless technologies like Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, and Bluetooth Low Energy make up the spine of the IoT. Infineon not only offers a broad portfolio and well-founded expertise in wireless solutions for the IoT, including consumer, commercial, industrial, and automotive applications. It is also a market leader in USB and USB-C technology, having shipped more than one billion such units since 2008. Beyond that, we enable secure cellular connectivity for a wide range of applications like smart cars, smart factories, and consumer electronics.

Powering IoT connectivity

Choose between Bluetooth Low Energy and dual-mode Bluetooth solutions that support both Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth LE. The SDK, along with the ModusToolbox IDE and configurator tools, form a powerful but easy to use toolset that helps you create amazing Bluetooth-enabled IoT solutions.

To enable IoT designs with a very small form factor, Infineon also offers AIROC™ Wi-Fi + Bluetooth combos: These integrate IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN and Bluetooth into a single-chip solution.

Product & solution examples

Infineon’s AIROC™ Cloud Connectivity Manager supports the AWS IoT ExpressLink to make IoT product development simple and quick. This Wi-Fi connectivity solution for new IoT applications provides a simple, secure Wi-Fi networking subsystem to connect products to the cloud of their choice without extensive firmware development, testing, or maintenance. With the new AIROC™ Wi-Fi 6/6E and Bluetooth® 5.2 product series, Infineon is responding to consumers’ demand for secured and convenient wireless connectivity and helping to reduce congestion of home networks. Wi-Fi 6, the latest generation of Wi-Fi to hit the market, is specifically built to improve reliability and performance, even in high device density environments. Unlike previous generations of Wi-Fi that focused on peak device speeds, Wi-Fi 6 includes advancements to relieve network congestion, and to improve network efficiency, device battery life, latency and range in addition to peak speeds. Robust software underpins the development of high-quality, secure, and reliable IoT products. That is why Infineon offers the ModusToolbox™, a set of multiplatform development tools and a comprehensive suite of GitHub-hosted firmware libraries. Together, they enable an immersive development experience for customers creating converged MCU and Wireless systems. New sensor technologies and connectivity solutions have helped create entirely new opportunities in the lighting industry, enabling energy savings and creating new use cases that go far beyond just lighting control. Advanced use cases such as people counting and people tracking can be ensured with radar technology. To add intelligence to the entire system, connectivity is a key element.
