Description

<p>Infineon Technologies offers semiconductor and system solutions addressing three central challenges to modern society: Energy Efficiency, Communications, and Security. Infineon has been firmly committed to the automotive industry for over 35 years and has established a proven track record. Offering one of the broadest product portfolios in the business, Infineon is the worldwide number one automotive semiconductor supplier. In the automotive sector, the company&rsquo;s product range includes power semiconductors (CoolMos, IGBTs and SiC technology), discrete semiconductors, silicon sensors and optoelectronic semiconductors as well as microcontrollers. Infineon automotive products target automobile electronics applications such as powertrain, comfort management (e.g. light modules, air conditioning), safety management (e.g. antilock braking systems, airbags, stability control) and infotainment. It is through ECUs incorporating Infineon&rsquo;s microcontroller technology that the European and American emissions from cars and light trucks have been able to be successively reduced year on year for new production vehicles. Cars and light trucks account for approximately 12% of the total European emissions of 4.2 billion tonnes of CO2 (or around 500 million tonnes annually). Infineon has developed the enabling technology to yield an estimated reduction of 24% in CO2 emissions between 1995 and 2008 (worth 120 million tonnes annually). Infineon Technologies is a premium AUTOSAR member, in particular an active member in the WP 1.3 of Autosar - Safety).</p>
