This merger heralds enhanced secure smart access, precise localization, and cutting-edge sensing capabilities in our increasingly connected world.

Infineon Technologies AG has solidified its grasp on the Internet of Things (IoT)sector with the recent acquisition of Zurich’s 3db Access AG, a forerunner in secure low-power Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology. The startup has previously been a preferred intellectual property provider for top-tier automotive brands.

This move enhances the company’s offerings for secure smart access, pinpoint localization, and advanced sensing. Adding UWB technology now complements their existing connectivity suite, which boasts Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy, and Near-field communication(NFC) solutions. Among the immediate benefits of this integration are secure access, indoor navigation, precise location tracking, and presence detection using UWB radars.

Thomas Rosteck, Division President at Infineon, stated, “3db’s UWB proficiency expedites our IoT objectives. Together, we’ll tap into the growing market of protected, connected gadgets, Our collaboration ensures comprehensive system solutions, amalgamating feature-rich RF configurations, enhanced security, low-power usage, and optimized hardware.” The UWB chipset market will surge by 13% annually, reaching an estimated US$3.1 billion by 2028. 

3db’s CEO, Boris Danev, remarked on the growth of UWB in smartphones and its potential integration in cars and IoT devices. “Joining Infineon means advancing secured localization and sensing features for key IoT and automotive use cases,” he said. “We’re transitioning from merely an IP provider to a solutions-based team supported by our fabrication units.”

Given the buzzing UWB market and rising demand, differentiation via research is vital for suppliers. The combined know-how of Infineon and 3db Access AG promises added value for clients. Rooted as an ETH Zurich offshoot, 3db continues its strategic affiliation with ETH, a relationship Infineon is eager to expand. Notably, Infineon’s robust R&D stance, with 59 global research locations, over 31,000 patents, and investing 13% of its annual revenue back into R&D, underscores its commitment to technological progress.
