- Infineon has delivered 38 million power semiconductors for medical ventilators
- The world is fighting Covid 19 outbreak
- Medical ventilators are considered as essential electronic medical equipment to combat Covid 19
- Many countries, including India and America, are facing a shortage of medical ventilators
Infineon Technologies is playing a vital role to support the manufacturing of ventilator devices. Power semiconductors, as the company informed are essential to reliably and efficiently control the motor of the ventilators.
“We are pleased that we can contribute to support overcoming this crisis with around 38 million power semiconductors for producing medical ventilators. As the global market leader for these components, we are focusing on being able to make these products available on short notice,” stated Helmut Gassel, member of the management board and CMO Infineon.
Infineon has delivered 38 million power semiconductors used as components in medical ventilators. The company also supplies these to mediacal devices manufacturer ResMed.
The world is fighting Covid 19 outbreak
As the world fights the outbreak of Covid 19, medical ventilators have been termed as essential electronic medical equipment in the fight. Critical patients (Covid 19) are said to be put on the aid of these in order to recover from the virus.
“We are currently experiencing a shift toward medical equipment. Numerous manufacturers are expanding or changing their product focus and asking us for the necessary components in order to quickly meet the special demand”, Dr Gassel on further requests in this field.
Infineon has a longstanding expertise and a broad product portfolio in the field of battery-operated electric motors. Infineon noted that its power MOSFETs are designed in a unique way to bring more efficiency in motor drives, with low switching losses, low heat generation and highest reliability in operation.
Mick Farrell, CEO, ResMed, said, “Infineon’s efforts to quickly provide these semiconductors are truly lifesaving. ResMed and other ventilator producers can only meet the world’s demand for these devices if component manufacturers like Infineon can meet ours. Thanks to Infineon and others for rising to this unprecedented challenge.”
