Digi-Key at Embedded World 2022 with Infineon
At Embedded World 2022, on the Digi-Key booth, Paige West speaks with Daniel Gernert, Specialist Customer Experience for Makers, Infineon about the programme "Infineon for Makers".
Infineon4Makers provides a solution and evaluation platform for engineers, maker professionals, hobbyists and technical enthusiasts to help turn innovative ideas into real design blueprints.
The programme takes products from Infineon who provides the ICs and builds them to a system level, building prototyping bricks. Essentially, turning ICs into real boards, capable of working with the biggest ecosystems of prototyping: Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
The decision was made to combine its products with these ecosystems as they are successful due to their huge communities, where you can find the solution to almost all issues. Arduino and Raspberry Pi also act as the glue, the overarching ecosystem bringing everyone together.
To accelerate the design process, every Infineon4Makers product comes with the software aspect as well as the hardware component, offering high level APIs, and there’s a community for makers to get involved and ask questions.
