      Part of your life. Part of tomorrow.

      We make life easier, safer and greener - with technology that achieves more, consumes less and is accessible to everyone. Microelectronics from Infineon is the key to a better future. Efficient use of energy, environmentally-friendly mobility and security in a connected world - we solve some of the most critical challenges that our society faces while taking a conscientious approach to the use of natural resources.

      Industrial Power Control specializes in the conversion of electric energy for the medium- to high-power range. IPC components are used to generate electric energy, transmit it with low losses and use it efficiently - particularly in applications where high voltages and high currents need to be controlled. Typical examples include industrial drives, rail cars, wind and photovoltaic power systems and larger household appliances such as air-conditioning units and washing machines. Our intensive, pioneering work in the development and manufacture of silicon carbide has put us in an excellent market position, for instance in the move to build out the charging infrastructure for e-vehicles.
