German semiconductor manufacturer Infineon Technologies and Taiwanese electronics manufacturer Delta Electronics have announced an expansion of their cooperation from industrial to automotive applications with the signing of a joint memorandum of understanding.
The agreement covers components that include high-voltage and low-voltage discretes and modules, and microcontrollers for such EV drivetrain applications as traction inverters, DC-DC converters and on
–board chargers. The two companies also agreed to establish and co-manage a development lab, the Delta-Infineon Automotive Innovation Center, in Pingzhen, Taiwan, which is expected to open later this year.
“We want to further advance the energy efficiency of electromobility together by combining Infineon’s comprehensive automotive product portfolio and application know-how with Delta’s expertise in integration and system optimization,” said Peter Schiefer, President of Infineon’s Automotive division.
