Target: For young/seed stage companies 
Outcome: start-ups and Infineon become technology partners, Infineon as the supplier

Key people: Head of R&D/CTOs to learn about hardware challenges

Aim: Infineon wishes to understand the requirements of hardware companies and co-develop solutions with early stage companies

Technology/Use-case focus:

Robotics/Drones

  • Hardware manufacturers such as power electronics, energy storage solutions, power management, motor drives, cobots, industrial robots and service robots
  • New robotics solutions, certification solutions to make robots safe 
  • Drones: Heavy lifting drone hardware manufacturers

    Other sensor based startups

Model 2: Venture Client Model

Target: Mature companies

Outcome: Infineon as the end user, startup as the supplier

Key people: CEOs/CTOs

Aim: Infineon wishes to get access to latest technologies for competitive advantage

Advanced Manufacturing/Smart Factory

  • Data Analytics for Manufacturing – testing electronic products for outliers and drifts, identifying faulty equipment and cause-effect analysis
  • Smart Camera for production – to zoom in on specific areas in high resolution for fault detection and quality control 
  • Predict lead-time in factories – solutions to accurately forecast lead times (Simulations are being used but data integration is not an efficient process.)
  • Knowledge Management: Free text analysis on manually created machinery shut-down/failure reports (NLP)
