Infineon extends automotive IC deal with UMC

08 March 2023

Infineon Technologies AG has signed a long-term partnership with pure-play foundry United Microelectronics Corp. (UMC) that extends capacity for the production of its automotive microcontroller.

The deal will help to expand Infineon’s reach into the automotive market with microcontrollers that use its embedded non-volatile flash memory technology manufactured at UMC’s Singapore fab on its 40nm process.

The microcontrollers are used in a range of automotive functions including those to make cars green, safe and smarter. Infineon said it is selling automotive microcontrollers at close to one million per day.

Infineon said the deal gives the company long-term capacity for its automotive market ICs as well as for its other vehicle semiconductors such as power management and connectivity.

UMC said its shipments of automotive products have tripled since 2019 and expect the trend to continue as more electronics content is being placed inside vehicles for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), infotainment, connectivity and more.
