Developing smart, networked products for the IoT is a real challenge. Addressing the interplay between wireless and embedded systems and topics like security, cloud integration, and energy management is time-consuming and requires substantial expertise.
Therefore, alongside excellent semiconductors, Infineon also offers a multitude of tools that manufacturers of IoT devices can use to bring high-quality, secure, and reliable products to market faster. A large selection of reference designs and simulation tools considerably simplifies development. Pre-integrated solutions supported by a robust software suite reduce your time-to-market.
The firmware libraries comprise easily customizable Board Support Packages (BSP) for Infineon MCUs and Bluetooth SoC (20xxx) kits, a comprehensive set of middleware libraries - enabling industry-leading features such as CAPSENSE™, Bluetooth Low Energy and Mesh, and the lowest-power, most reliable Wi-Fi on the market - plus an impressive set of thoroughly tested and amazingly helpful code example applications.
ModusToolboxTM thereby considerably simplifies the development of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth/Bluetooth Low Energy IoT products with RTOS system microcontrollers, such as those from the PSoCTM family. Companies can use the integrated middleware to connect their IoT products with leading cloud software platforms or proprietary cloud services in public or private cloud infrastructure. ModusToolboxTM contains solutions to support popular ecosystems and cloud management tools:
Tools like the low-power assistant, multi-radio smart coexistence, secure authentication, and over-the-air updates reduce the time and expense required when launching high-value, high-quality products onto the market.
Almost all firmware is provided as Apache® 2.0-licensed source code and is exhaustively tested with GNU Arm Embedded v9, Arm Compiler 6, and IAR C/C++ Compiler v8. Our make-based flow is easy to understand and supports command-line builds as well as IDE-based development with Microsoft Visual Studio Code, IAR Embedded Workbench, Arm MDK, and an Eclipse-based IDE with specialized ModusToolboxTM plugins. Our device and middleware configuration tools generate simple C code that just gets compiled into your application without error-prone format conversion or mysterious merge utilities.
Infineon’s comprehensive product range in the areas of sensors and actuators, computing, connectivity, and security is at the core of every IoT system. Combined with the matching tools and software solutions to create smart, secure, and energy-efficient IoT solutions you can leverage the potential of into new markets and applications. All in all, this makes Infineon your one-stop partner for unleashing the full potential of the Internet of Things.
Sensors make IoT devices smarter, enabling the “things” involved to “see”, “hear”, “feel”, “smell” and therefore understand their surroundings. Infineon boasts an extensive portfolio containing a wide variety of sensor types for such applications alongside an excellent selection of ready-to-use solutions with a short time-to-market. The assortment of sensor technology at Infineon includes pressure and magnetic sensors, acoustic sensors, 3D image sensors, radar sensors and CO2 sensors to name just a few examples. Evaluation and demo boards and online simulation tools empower you to easily create IoT solutions that make a difference. What is more, Infineon collaborates with its ecosystem partners to develop innovative use cases that grant customers a clear market advantage in sectors such as robotics, autonomous driving, and building automation.
Specifications for microcontrollers in IoT devices are as varied as the IoT applications themselves. Infineon’s microcontroller families provide the matching solutions. Infineon offers a broad variety of MCUs based on 32-bit Arm® architecture, Infineon’s 32-bit TriCore™ architecture, and others. Comprehensive tools and development platforms simplify the development process, such as DAVE™, the development platform for XMC™ microcontrollers, AURIX™ embedded software, or AURIX™ tools.
With the PSoCTM line of low-power, high-performance MCUs, at our portfolio, we make it even easier for our customers to enter the IoT arena. To evaluate and design with all available PSoCTM 6 MCUs, Infineon offers the ModusToolboxTM SW environment. PSoCTM Creator is an integrated design environment that enables concurrent hardware and firmware editing, compiling and debugging of PSoCTM and FM0+ systems.
Infineon is currently the only company on the market offering a full-spectrum portfolio of all power technologies – silicon (Si), silicon carbide (SiC), and GaN. We can therefore empower your IoT solution with the best-fit solution for your motor drive or energy management system. Irrespective of whether you have a design in a microamp or megawatt range, you can rely on our superior energy efficiency and reliability. Discover the opportunities of Infineon power semiconductor solutions for your design in our simulation tools.
Infineon’s portfolio of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth products is used extensively in the Internet of Things, including consumer, commercial, industrial, and automotive applications. 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 AIROCTM Wi-Fi + Bluetooth combos: These integrate IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN and Bluetooth into a single-chip solution. Infineon is also a market leader in USB and USB-C, with more than 1 billion units shipped since 2008. Beyond that, we enable secure cellular connectivity for a wide range of applications like smart cars, smart factories, and consumer electronics.
Security is embedded in our DNA. We have shaped security and privacy in embedded systems since the beginning by creating trust to increase and foster opportunities of the IoT. We provide security solutions that address your challenges and fit your system requirements. Our aim is to ensure the appropriate security for your IoT application and a great user experience. Designed for easy integration Infineon’s OPTIGA™ family offers a broad product portfolio for embedded security solutions and secured cellular connectivity.
SECORA™ is Infineon’s family of one-stop security solutions with an integrated operating system (OS), providing a cost-efficient route to fast and agile implementations. PSoCTM 64 AWS standard secure MCUs have a hardware-based root-of-trust and run Trusted Firmware-M security firmware, enabling secure boot and secure firmware updates along with other secure services.
