A year after its launch, the Infineon Co-Innovation Space has borne fruit with two of its inaugural batch of startups coming up with their commercially-ready solutions built with Infineon’s microelectronics. Ampotech has developed smart energy monitoring solutions while Xnergy has conceived next-generation wireless power transfer and charging technologies for autonomous devices.
Taking their space at the facility at Infineon’s Asia Pacific headquarters in Singapore will be BAWA Cane, Spectronik and XaLogic, which will be developing solutions for the visually impaired, clean mobility and machine learning respectively in the next 12 months. They will join two members of the 2018 intake, Plunify and Shado, which will continue their solution development at the facility.
“The outcome of the Co-Innovation Space has exceeded our expectations. Smart and secure innovations for industrial, infrastructure and mobility applications created in Singapore for the world are now ready for commercial showcase,” said Chua Chee Seong, President and Managing Director of Infineon Technologies Asia Pacific.
“Additionally, the synergy with the startups has helped to fan the spirit of innovation among our team and our eco-system of partners. We look forward to inventing the future together with the new group of innovators to create products that make life easier, safer and greener for everyone,” he added.
Launched in 2018, the 260-square metre Co-Innovation Space is the first of its kind for the company and the semiconductor industry. It’s a year-long commitment backed by technologies, expertise and guidance from Infineon in Singapore and around the world.
Participants have access to Infineon’s research and development and manufacturing facilities, and connections to major Infineon partners and customers in the region.
Infineon will be holding its annual OktoberTech Asia Pacific 2019 on October 25 (tomorrow) where the Co-Innovation Space startups will showcase their innovations.
OktoberTech is expected to bring together more than 300 innovators, businesses, academics, investors, and policy makers from around the world. Themed “Inventing the future together”, the one-day symposium will cover applications such as smart city infrastructure, Industry 4.0-enabling technologies, autonomous and electrified mobility, and smart home and personal devices.
