Project "PowerBase" - Infineon conducts research on a new energy saving chip

"PowerBase" is the largest microelectronic research project in Europe coordinated from Austria up until now, boasting a total investment volume of EUR 87 million. Research is being done on energy-saving chips widely used in technical devices. “They are made of silicon. In contrast, our research is relying on a new material, namely gallium nitride”, said Sabine Herlitschka, Chief Executive Officer of Infineon Austria. Thanks to this project, Villach is the “power electronics capital of Europe“, according to Andreas Wild of Electronic Components and System for European Leadership (ESEL), an initiative supporting the research project. The project is focusing on power semiconductors which are integrated into smart phones, computers and servers.
