News about Infineon

Driver chip reduces LED taillight complexity February 17, 2015Driver chip reduces LED taillight complexity More functions, higher integration and lower complexity in medium-power LED exterior lighting are the benefits designers can expect from Infineon's new Litix Basic LED driver product family. Automotive OEMs can implement brand-specific features and improve the safety through innovative lighting functions in direction indicators, taillights and stop lights. Read more Infineon, Hella make radar sensor more affordable February 4, 2015Infineon, Hella make radar sensor more affordable A high percentage of traffic accidents result from visibility issues connected to the blind spot. As a countermeasure, OEMs equip their vehicles with blind spot detectors which typically are based on radar. This solution however is rather costly and for this reason restricted to upmarket vehicles. Infineon and German tier one Hella KG now have jointly developed RF components for radar sensors that enable manufacturers to lower prices and power consumption likewise. Read more Infineon takes the lead in auto semiconductors January 26, 2015Infineon takes the lead in auto semiconductors After a pursuit race that lasted years, Infineon has taken the lead over long-standing number one Renesas in the automotive semiconductor market. While the IHS release does not state the figures for Renesas, Infineon could extend their market share from 9.2% in 2013 to 9.8% in 2014. Other winners are Freescale (7.4% market share after 7.0%), Texas Instruments (6.4% after 5.3%) and ON Semiconductors (from 2.9% to 3.6%). The latest figures from market research company IHS suggest that the market won't slow down anytime soon. Read more UMC to manufacture automotive power devices for Infineon December 15, 2014UMC to manufacture automotive power devices for Infineon In an extension to its long-standing partnership with semiconductor foundry UMC, Infineon will transfer its Smart Power technology SPT9 to the latter. Beginning early 2018, UMC will start to manufacture SPT9 products in 300mm wafer technology. Read more Motor driver platform addresses highly integrated mechatronic designs November 28, 2014Motor driver platform addresses highly integrated mechatronic designs Addressing car manufacturers' and tier one's strategy towards electrification of auxiliary components in vehicles, Infineon has launched an intelligent motor driver chip platform with embedded 32-bit ARM Cortex M3 processors inside. The first two family members are the TLE987x series for 3-phase (brushless DC) motors and the TLE986x series for 2phase (DC) motors. Read more
