How easy is it to connect devices securely to the IoT?
Providing a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is challenging for any design process. With the IoT, additional constraints, like the number of devices to be connected and the computing power required, significantly increase the complexity of this task. Infineon Technologies will review these constraints and show how the OPTIGA Trust X solution can help reduce complexity when adding security to your PKI design.
D²PAK 7pin+ MOSFETs for battery-powered applications
Infineon Technologies has complemented its StrongIRFET 40-60 V MOSFET product family with the addition of three new devices in D²PAK 7pin+ package. These new components offer extremely low R DS(on) and high current-carrying capability, which increases both robustness and reliability for high-power-density applications that require high efficiency.
Secured connectivity for data-driven supply chains
Industrial supply chain solutions like digital twins, usage-based pricing models, product warranties or licensing solutions increasingly require reliable and auditable sensor and process data. Yet security is paramount, especially when data is transferred from one company or organisation to another, Infineon has a a solution for secured connectivity.
New current ratings added to TRENCHSTOP IGBT7 portfolio
Infineon Technologies has added new current ratings to its 1,200V TRENCHSTOP IGBT7 modules. This completes the Easy 1B and 2B portfolio, which is now offering power solutions for up to 11 kW in PIM and up to 22kW in six-pack topologies with the latest chip technology.
CoolMOS CFD7A MOSFET for automotive applications
Supporting the needs of the electro-mobility market, Infineon Technologies has launched its new product family: the CoolMOS CFD7A series. These silicon-based, high-performance products can be used in both the PFC and the DC-DC stage of on-board charger systems and HV-LV DC/DC converters specifically optimized for electric-vehicle applications.
eSIM solution offers pre-integrated network coverage
Cellular networks will be the communication backbone for billions of mobile devices and machines connected to the Internet of Things (IoT). At the core of this development is the embedded Subscriber Identity Module (eSIM), which securely connects devices to networks. To shape this development, Infineon Technologies has announced that it is launching a comprehensive turnkey eSIM solution for the plethora of IoT devices and applications.
Induction heating technology in small home appliances
Induction heating brings precise and even heat control to cooking. It offers many benefits over conventional heating elements. Giuseppe de Falco, senior technical marketing engineer, Infineon Technologies, looks at the physics and the electronic technology used in many of our kitchen cooking appliances.
Ultra-small gate-driver IC with TDI for high density
Each time a power MOSFET is being turned on or off in a SMPS, parasitic inductances produce ground-shifts that may cause false triggering of the gate-driver IC. Infineon Technologies has added a device to its cost-effective and compact-size EiceDRIVER 1EDN TDI (truly differential inputs) 1-channel gate-driver family to prevent such consequences.
Final regulatory approval for acquisition of Cypress
Infineon Technologies has announced that all necessary regulatory approvals have been received for its acquisition of Cypress Semiconductor. Infineon expects to close the transaction within five business days.
