Infineon joins the 5G Automotive Association to contribute to automated driving


Infineon Technologies contributes to introducing the 5G standard into the car and has joined the 5G Automotive Association e. V. (5GAA). The association works on the introduction of new communication solutions enabling automated driving and on intelligent transport systems. As one of the semiconductor companies for automobile electronics, cellular infrastructure and data security, Infineon provides key technologies required for 5G, for the autonomous car.

“Secure communication with practically zero time delay is a critical requirement for the breakthrough of autonomous driving,” said Peter Schiefer, President of the Automotive division at Infineon. “In close cooperation with the car industry and IT, Infineon supports the communication solutions for the automated car with its cutting-edge semiconductors and with system and security expertise.”

Worldwide 5G standardization speeding success of the automated car

International standardization is a critical requirement for the market success of new technologies and their applications, such as the Internet of Things or autonomous driving. Together with major car manufacturers, Infineon is already active in all relevant industry associations in order to quickly make the automated and electric car a reality. Infineon is also a member of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) .
