#MakeIoTwork Podcast

Experience Infineon’s world of IoT!

Digitization is currently experiencing an unimagined worldwide push. Smart and connected objects link the real with the digital world, helping us to tackle the major challenges of our time, such as climate change and the growing world population. Intelligent devices are part of many people's everyday lives - both in professional and private environments. The Internet of Things provides the technological basis for exploiting the full potential of digitization. The potential of IoT is well known and undisputed. But how do we actually implement it? How can people and companies benefit from it? In this podcast, I meet with experts from Infineon, partners and customers and discuss with them how we can make IoT work.

7. Smart things conquer the market: Bring your smartwatch and wristband device to the next level

Today’s ever-connected consumers want one thing above all – convenience! In other words: easy and intuitive ways to tune into the entertaining and useful information they love and need – without switching between different devices or screens. The answer is surprisingly simple: wearables. But for today’s wearable designs, engineers face a number of challenges.
In this new episode, Verena Lackner and Marcel Konstantinov explain how smart things conquer the market and how microelectronics turn devices into voice-operated assistants, digital wallets and health tracker.

6. The senses of IoT - Giving human senses to “things” to make our lives easier

Sensors make IoT devices smarter, enabling the “things” involved to “see”, “hear”, “feel”, “smell” and therefore understand their surroundings. Inspired by human nature, Infineon intuitive sensing solutions are designed to take the complexity out of our interaction with devices and to increase their efficiency. Infineon provides different sensors with state-of-the-art software to create a comprehensive picture of the world around us – known as “contextual awareness. In this episode we talk with Philipp Schierstaedt, who is a Senior Vice President & General Manager at Infineon, how sensors mark the starting point to each and every IoT system and give "things" human senses.

5. How Infineon’s new ModusToolbox™ Machine Learning supports to make the AIoT work.

"The original paradigm of simply moving all of the data generated on the edge to the cloud for analysis and machine learning has run into three fundamental barriers, namely privacy, reliability and latency. Running these algorithms efficiently on edge eliminates these barriers and allows AIoT products to scale much more rapidly", says Sree Harsha Angara, guest of our new episode.

In this new episode we discuss,

  • the development of AIoT and Machine Learning,
  • fundamental barriers and challenges and
  • how the new ModusToolboxTM ML supports here.

4. The heartbeat and the nerve center of the IoT

The need of “staying connected and being online” changed in the last month from being perceived as a luxury problem to a basic need. In times of social distancing digitalization brings people together – with smart IoT devices. In this episode we will talk with Vikram Gupta, Senior Vice President of Infineon’s IoT Compute and Wireless Business Unit about the heartbeat and the nerve center of the IoT - meaning:

  • Reliable and seamless connectivity solutions
  • Microcontrollers for the IoT

Buildings that can “hear” and “see” their surroundings and react accordingly: Science fiction or reality?

In this episode, we are pleased to welcome Julia Fichte and Manuel Hollfelder. We will talk about the relevance and benefits of smart buildings for tenants, residents, workers and of course the operators.

  • Which technologies make buildings smart?
  • How can predivtice maintenance help to reduce breakdowns and costs, while extending lifetime by 20%?
  • Why is it so important to work in conjunction with all the stakeholders in the ecosystem?

2. The smart home revolution is coming – and Infineon secures this revolution!

Guest of episode 2 is Steve Hanna, a Distinguished Engineer at Infineon and an IoT pioneer. He will introduce us to the Matter project where he leads several security teams and therefore answer the following three questions:

  • What is the Matter project and how does it work?
  • What is Infineon's role in this project and how will consumers and manufacturers benefit from it?
  • When will the first devices be available?

1. Welcome to Infineon‘s world of IoT – and to our new #MakeIoTwork Podcast

Our first guest is Thomas Rosteck, who is heading Infineon’s division Connected Secure Systems. He will introduce us to the essential building blocks that it takes to make the IoT work and therefore answer the following three questions:

  • What is new in the IoT? Meaning what has changed lately?
  • What are the challenges that companies – independent of being big players or start-ups – face when addressing the IoT with their business?
  • How can we as a semiconductor company support companies to leverage the potential arising from the Internet of Things.
