INFINEON TECHNOLOGIES DRESDEN GMBH
The Infineon Technologies Dresden GmbH is one of the largest production sites for innovative automotive semiconductor solutions. Infineon produces in Dresden more than 200 different logic circuits. With about 50 percent, solutions for the automotive industry account for the largest share of the production portfolio. For example, Infineon chips from Dresden can be found inside the BMW i3 from Leipzig.
Dresden is also the place where the company is currently establishing the world’s first high-volume factory for power semiconductors on 300 mm wafers. Power semiconductors are designed to control and switch high electric currents and voltages which is why they are elementary components in hybrid and electric vehicles. Infineon chips control battery systems in electric cars, recoup their braking energy and, thus, help extend the range of e-vehicles.
