Infineon Technologies has been named a CES 2023 ‘Innovation Awards Honouree’ for three products including its EXCELON F-RAM, XENSIV Connected Sensor Kit (CSK) and Smart Alarm System (SAS) for smart homes.

This year’s programme received a record high number of over 2,100 submissions. The announcement was made ahead of CES 2023, happening 5-8th January in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The CES Innovation Awards programme, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), is an annual competition honouring outstanding design and engineering in 28 consumer technology product categories. Those with the highest rating receive the ‘Best of Innovation’ distinction. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic, and design.

Infineon’s three CES 2023 ‘Innovation Awards Honourees’ include:

Infineon’s EXCELON F-RAM – the highest density F-RAM in the market with speeds up to 54MB/s. EXCELON’s key features are its density, performance, and reliability. EXCELON is the ideal data-logging memory for portable medical, wearable, IoT sensor, industrial and automotive applications. The family also comprises the EXCELON LP, the ultra-low-energy F-RAM for portable medical devices and wearables. This series features multiple power-saving modes including hibernate, deep power down and standby, and consumes 200x less energy than EEPROMs and 3,000x less energy than NOR flash. See this product in LVCC West booth #3829.

Infineon’s SAS – a multi-layered security system that uses data from XENSIV microphones and XENSIV barometric pressure sensors coupled together with acoustic event detection technology, sensor fusion algorithms running on the PSoC family of MCUs to provide true protection and monitoring against burglary, intrusion. The system runs on machine learning TinyAI algorithms that manage acoustic events, pressure events, or combined events into one sensor fusion architecture. By combining audio with pressure information, SAS only acts when expected for use cases such as smoke detection, home intrusions and carbon monoxide detection. See this product in the Venetian hotel ballrooms, Titian 2204 and 2205.

Infineon’s XENSIV CSK – the go-to sensors platform for IoT device development. This kit allows design engineers to create new prototypes based on Infineon sensors including radar and environmental sensors, as well as the whole set of system-completing semiconductors. The CSK gives IoT developers the opportunity to rapidly design, develop and manufacture products based on a development ecosystem. The kit also supports testing sensor-driven IoT products and use cases, along with prototyping. This enables customers to significantly reduce the time from proof-of-concept to a fully developed, finalised IoT design, for smart home applications. The kit comes complete with an XENSIV BGT60TR13C (60GHz radar), PAS CO2 sensor and DPS368 barometric pressure sensor, PSoC 62 low-power dual-core MCU, low-power Wi-Fi (dual band – 2.4 and 5GHz) and Bluetooth 5.0 combo, along with an OPTIGA Trust M security component and use of Infineon’s ModusToolbox software ecosystem. See this product in the Venetian hotel ballrooms, Titian 2204 and 2205.

New for CES 2023

CES has partnered with the World Academy of Art and Science (WAAS) to showcase the critical role of technology in support of the United Nations efforts to advance human security around the world. For CES 2023, CTA introduced a new category of Innovation Awards showcasing technologies advancing human rights. The Human Security for All category includes eight new tech subcategories.

The CES 2023 Innovation Awards honourees, including product descriptions and photos, can be found at More will be revealed in January. Many honourees will showcase their winning products in the Innovation Awards Showcase at CES 2023.
