At the heart of IoT: Connected Secure Systems

About Infineon Connected Secure Systems (CSS)

Connecting, computing, securing: we make IoT work!

More and more devices and systems are being connected to the Internet every day, making things smart and interactive. This “Internet of Things” is having a huge impact on how we live, work, and communicate. By the end of 2021, experts predict that 127 new IoT devices will connect to the internet every second. This merging of the physical and digital is taking place all around us – in our homes, in our cars, in factories, in hospitals and even on our wrists. The IoT promises to transform our world for the better.

Microelectronics is the backbone of IoT and makes it work. We at CSS concentrate mainly on solutions to connect, compute and secure IoT operations, which puts us right at the heart of this every exciting field.
