On the afternoon of May 31st, Infineon Technologies AG, a German company specializing in power and IoT semiconductor solutions, opened a new office in Hanoi, announcing the expansion of its business in Vietnam and the establishment of an electronic chip development center in Hanoi.
It is expected that by the end of 2023, about 25 technical experts will work in Infineon Vietnam's new office in Hanoi. This force will focus on testing and customizing digital, analogue, and integrated circuits, as well as providing support for applications such as autonomous driving, battery monitoring.
The chip development team's activities in Hanoi are managed by Infineon Technologies Vietnam, a subsidiary of Infineon Technologies Asia-Pacific.
Hartmut Hiller, Executive Vice President of Design and Support Services (DES) at Infineon Technologies AG, stated that, the new development center located in Hanoi will help DES meet the growing demand for functional testing and customized circuit design for Infineon chip system solutions.
“The new electronic chip development center will strengthen Vietnam's hardware development ecosystem and make an important contribution to ensuring access to high-quality and professional human resources," Hartmut Hiller said.
He added that the new development center in Hanoi is expected to play an important role in the growth plan of Infineon Technology's design and support services department. In the early stages, DES will focus on system expertise and capabilities on SoC chips, seeking experts in functional testing and custom circuit design.
“These new employees will make an important contribution to turning this place into an international standard research and development center, similar to Infineon's international R&D centers located in Munich (Germany), Villach (Austria), Bangalore (India) and Singapore,” emphasized Mr. Hartmut Hiller.
The microcontroller chip used for automotive applications is also another new development activity of the center in Hanoi, which will leverage the experience and operations of Infineon's main centers in Munich, Dublin, and Singapore. The microcontroller development team in Hanoi will first focus on testing work.
