Infineon at electronica 2022
Decarbonisation and digitalisation as key topics
From 15 to 18 November, Infineon will be at the electronica trade fair in Munich, Germany, focussing on the theme 'Driving decarbonisation and digitalisation. Together.'
"Decarbonisation and digitalisation are closely linked with one another," says Andreas Urschitz, Infineon's chief marketing officer. "Semiconductors from Infineon enable higher energy efficiency along the entire conversion chain. Chips are the core components of renewable energies; without them climate transformation will be impossible. In addition, our smart applications help save energy. Now, at the electronica, we're showing how we can master the central challenges of our time with innovative system solutions."
All all-electric Genesis GV60 car (pictured above) will be featured on Infineon's stand. It is based on the Hyundai Motor Group's Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). Charging the Genesis GV60 from 10 to 80 percent takes just 18 minutes. This high-speed charging performance and a longer vehicle range are made possible among other things by 800 V battery technology and an Infineon CoolSiC-based HybridPACK drive module in the main inverter. Other highlights include reliable electronics for automated driving.
Infineon is collaborating with REE Automotive. The automotive technology company has developed the REE ultra-modular electric vehicle platforms based on its proprietary REEcorner technology. REE’s EV platforms are designed to serve as the basis for a wide variety of electric vehicle types ranging from commercial vans to electric passenger buses. This chassis concept allows to build e-vehicles faster, more flexibly and more cost-effectively than ever before; thanks to drive-by-wire technology, they can also freely position the steering wheel and pedals, for example. This design concept includes Infineon's safe AURIX microcontrollers, drivers, power semiconductors, sensors and safety controllers. The REEcorner will be on display at Infineon's electronica booth.
The company will also be displaying an air conditioning system connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) that can understand its surroundings and react to the needs of the people present.
