The world leader in semiconductor solutions, Infineon Technologies today opened its Co-Innovation Space that aims to help start-ups accelerate the development of their “prototypes or viable semiconductor solutions.”

By bringing in select start-ups to set up their labs in the 250-square metre Co-Innovation Space, which is located in Infineon Technologies, the company believes that the cross-knowledge sharing between both sides can be mutually beneficial.

The partnership will see Infineon Technologies share valuable insights of its business operations and network with the start-up partners. It will also give them access to its research and development, and manufacturing facilities.

On the other hand, the start-ups offer Infineon Technologies knowledge on their innovative approach to designing new products and solutions of tomorrow.

President and Managing Director of Infineon Asia Pacific, Chua Chee Seong said:

“Working closely together with the start-ups give us the opportunities to exchange knowledge while providing them access to technologies, the network of partners and customers around the world. Through the Infineon Co-Innovation Space, we look forward to new products that will impact the world and make life easier, safer and greener for society.”

There are currently four selected start-ups working on their products at the Co-Innovation Space.

They are:

  • Ampotech, a start-up that collects and analyse data of power and energy consumption of spaces and equipment in real-time, and creates hardware and software solutions to improve energy efficiencies.
  • Plunify, electronic design automation (EDA) company that uses machine learning to improve and enhance the efficiencies of electronic circuitries.
  • SHADO, a company that develop zero carbon emission vehicles like the Personal Mobility Devices for short distance commute. Its charging technology can provide a rider with a 2km ride with only a minute’s charge.
  • Xnergy, a start-up that works on wireless “power transfer and charging technologies for autonomous devices, including mobile robots and mobility vehicles.”

CEO and Founder of Plunify, Ng Harnhua shared that he’s grateful to Infineon Technologies for inviting them to be part of the Co-Innovation Space, which provided them with engineering data that are crucial for their product development.
