Infineon Technologies AG engages in the design, development, manufacture, and marketing of a range of semiconductors and system solutions used in a variety of microelectronic applications. The company’s products include standard commodity components, full-custom devices, semi-custom devices, and application-specific components for analog, digital, and mixed-signal applications. The company has operations, investments, and customers located primarily in Europe, Asia, and North America. Segments The company’s business is organized in four segments: Automotive, Industrial & Multimarket, Chip Card & Security, and Wireless Solutions. The Automotive segment designs, develops, manufactures and markets semiconductors for use in automotive applications. Together with its product portfolio, the company offers corresponding system know-how and support to its customers. The Industrial & Multimarket segment designs, develops, manufactures and markets semiconductors and complete system solutions primarily for use in industrial applications and in applications with customer-specific product requirements. The Chip Card & Security segment designs, develops, manufactures, and markets a range of security controllers and security memories for chip card and security applications. The Wireless Solutions segment designs, develops, manufactures, and markets a range of ICs, other semiconductors and complete system solutions for wireless communication applications. Products and Applications Automotive segment The Automotive segment focuses on microcontrollers and power semiconductors, discrete semiconductors, modules, and sensors. The Automotive division offers semiconductors and complete system solutions in the engine management, safety and chassis, body and convenience, and infotainment markets, in some cases including software. The company’s principal automotive products include semiconductors for powertrain applications, which perform engine and transmission control and enable hybrid powertrains; semiconductors for safety management, which manage tasks, such as the operation of airbags, anti-lock braking systems, electronic stability systems, power steering systems, and tire pressure monitoring systems; and semiconductors for body and convenience systems, which include light modules, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, door modules (power windows, door locks, mirror control) and electrical power distribution systems. The company’s automotive products include power semiconductors, microcontrollers, discrete semiconductors and silicon sensors, along with related technologies and packaging. Industrial & Multimarket segment The Industrial & Multimarket segment designs, develops, manufactures, and markets semiconductors and complete system solutions primarily for use in industrial and multimarket applications, in addition to applications with customer-specific product requirements. Within the market for industrial semiconductor applications, the company focuses on power management and supply, as well as drives and power generation and distribution. Within the industrial business, the company focuses on two major applications: power management & supply and power conversion. The company’s portfolio comprises power modules, small signal and discrete power semiconductors, and power management ICs. The company’s industrial products are used in a range of applications, such as power supplies (AC/DC), divided into two main categories: uninterruptible power supplies, such as power backbones for Internet servers, and switched-mode power supplies for PCs, servers and consumer electronics such as televisions and gaming consoles, as well as battery chargers for mobile phones, notebook computers and other handheld devices; DC/DC power converters for computing and communication applications such as motherboards, telecommunications equipment, and graphic cards; lighting (electronic lamp ballast and control and LED drivers); drives for machine tools, motor controls, pumps, fans and heating, ventilation, consumer appliances (such as washing machines), air-conditioning systems and transportation, as well as
