ground breaking at DICE © Dice/ APA Photo Service, Hörmandinger

In addition to its work force of approx. 180 employees, Infineon is also creating capacities at the site for an additional 220 jobs in research and development. Infineon is doing its share to produce intelligent vehicles and to ensure that the devices quickly and reliably communicate in the Internet of Things with people and among themselves. The Linz facility will develop solutions for these important future markets. Peter Schiefer, President of the Automotive Division of the Infineon Group, underlined the fact that microelectronics account for a large share of all innovations in cars and smart phones.    

Infineon is a trailblazer in the field of radar for automated driver assistance systems thanks to its Development Centre for High-Frequency Components. In 2009 the high-tech company launched the world’s first 77 GHz radar chip in a silicon-germanium technology on the marketplace. These radar sensors are used in driver assistance systems for such purposes as distance warnings and automatic emergency braking and serve to make driving cars safer and more comfortable. Infineon is the technological and global market leader in this segment, having sold more than 100 million 77 GHz radar chips. The objective is to further develop this safety technology in light of the fact that radar sensors will be part of the standard equipment included in every new motor vehicle in the future. Radar systems are the prerequisite for automated driving, amongst other things.
