Infineon Technologies has joined the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) and is helping to introduce the 5G standard into the car.

5GAA works on the introduction of new communication solutions enabling connected automated driving and on intelligent transport system, and Infineon provides key technologies required for 5G, for the autonomous car, and for electro-mobility.

“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,” said Schiefer.

Dino Flore, director general of the 5GAA, said Infineon’s chip expertise for car electronics, data security, and mobile communication is a valuable addition to the 5GAA.

Compared to the preceding 4G infrastructure, 5G is 100 times faster and able to transmit 1,000 times more data in real-time. Enhanced mobile broadband access at multi-gigabit speeds requires advanced semiconductor solutions.

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.
