Partners signed an MoU to innovate for EVs; agreed to set up a joint innovation lab for automotive applications
Leading automotive semiconductors player, Infineon Technologies AG and Taiwan-based power and energy management company, Delta Electronics, Inc. recently announced that they are expanding their long-term cooperation from industrial to automotive applications. In this regard, both companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to deepen their joint innovation activities aimed at providing more efficient and higher-density solutions for the fast-growing market of electric vehicles (EVs). As per the official note, the agreement covers a wide range of components such as high-voltage and low-voltage discrete and modules as well as microcontrollers to be used in EV drivetrain applications such as traction inverters, DC-DC converters and on-board chargers.
It is interesting to note that a joint innovation lab for automotive applications, named the Delta-Infineon Automotive Innovation Center, will be set up in Pingzhen, Taiwan in the second half of 2023 and co-managed by both companies.
President of Infineon’s Automotive division, Peter Schiefer remarked: “Infineon and Delta share the common goal of developing increasingly energy-efficient and CO 2-saving solutions that support global decarbonization efforts. 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. Ensuring the energy efficiency of automotive applications is of paramount importance in our time and we are committed to further improving it.”
Corporate VP of Delta Electronics, James Tang commented, “Infineon is a trusted partner of Delta. Over the past 25 years, we have successfully collaborated in the area of industrial products. We are now looking forward to extending this partnership to electromobility. We see a growing demand in the automotive industry for innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions. Together with Infineon, we are committed to supporting the global transition to electromobility with our products and solutions and to bringing electromobility to a whole new level.”
