Infineon Technologies AG, a German manufacturer of chips and power semiconductors for electric mobility, is a new partner for the automotive sector in the strategic supplier network FAST of the Volkswagen Group. The name is derived from the name "Future Automotive Supply Tracks". New applications are to be developed with FAST in the future. These include chips that control the transmission of energy during the conversion of current between the charging station, battery and electric motor and also regulate the recovery of energy during braking.
“Together with our customers, we want to ensure that electro-mobility becomes part of people’s everyday life,” said Peter Schiefer, President of the Automotive Division of Infineon. “Together with Volkswagen, we can identify requirements early on and create innovations that increase the range of electric vehicles or reduce charging times, for example.”
To meet the increasing demand for power electronics in the automotive sector, Infineon is increasing its production capacity at its Dresden (Germany) and Kulim (Malaysia sites). The company will also invest 1.6 billion euros in a new production facility in Villach, Austria.
