MUNICH, Germany, April 4, 2022 — Hyundai Motor Group has honored Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) as “Partner of the Year 2021” with the “Special Award for Supply Competence”.

The top global automaker recognized Infineon’s efforts to stabilize uncertain supply chains despite the challenges posed by COVID-19 and the global semiconductor shortage.

Hyundai Motor Group (HMG) has honored Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) as “Partner of the Year 2021” with the “Special Award for Supply Competence”.

In particular, Infineon was honored for its excellent risk management working with HMG. Infineon Korea and Infineon Headquarters have provided flexible and strategic cooperation to manage the difficult situation in the market.

EV support and SiC

For example, by providing the silicon carbide (SiC) based power module HybridPACK CoolSiC Drive, Infineon demonstrated product quality and its ability to respond to new requirements.

“Infineon is a reliable partner. We are honored that our efforts to maintain our delivery capabilities in a very challenging environment are valued and appreciated by our customers”, said Peter Schiefer, President of the Automotive Division at Infineon.

“With the rapid momentum towards green mobility, semiconductor solutions are in high demand. We are driving the transformation toward electromobility with high-quality products, leading technology and system expertise, along with a global production network.”

The conversion to electromobility has just started. Almost every second of the BEVs (Battery electric vehicle) and PHEVs (Plug-in Hybrid) produced in 2021 use Infineon semiconductors in the inverter.

In order to further strengthen the resilience of the supply chain, Infineon is continuously increasing its capacities in production and assembly of high-power solutions in Europe and Asia.  

Market leadership

Furthermore, Infineon is strengthening its market leadership in power semiconductors by adding significant manufacturing capacities in the field of wide bandgap (SiC and Gallium nitride, GaN) semiconductors. SiC can help to increase the range of an electric car by five to ten percent.

HMG has been awarding the “Partner of the Year” award since 2002. In early 2019, Infineon was the first semiconductor manufacturer to receive this award.

It was awarded in recognition of outstanding achievements in just-in-time supply and contribution to strengthening the overall competitiveness of the Hyundai Motor Group. /PRNewswire/
