Infineon Technologies is collaborating with Vietnamese smart electric car maker VinFast and R&D hub LG Sciencepark to drive Asian innovation that enables efficient energy management, smart mobility, and secure and seamless communications in a connected world.
"This marks the expansion of Infineon's innovation ecosystem beyond Singapore and Malaysia. With our new innovation partners based in South Korea and Vietnam, Infineon is shaping a sustainable future by driving solutions for decarbonisation and digitalisation in Asia," said Chee Seong Chua, president and managing director, Infineon Technologies Asia Pacific.
With the company’s new partnerships, communities of creators, manufacturers and startups will leverage Infineon's hardware solutions including sensors, microcontrollers, actuators, and secured connectivity to create new solutions or to power emerging technologies.
VinFast and Infineon will establish a joint application centre in Hanoi in the first quarter of 2023. The VinFast Infineon Competence Center will accelerate the co-development of future solutions for smart mobility such as the next-generation electric drive train for electric vehicle platforms.
LG Sciencepark and Infineon will identify and support promising startups who are looking to commercialize or scale their solutions in South Korea and Southeast Asia. Both parties will support startups with access to business partners, office space (in the Infineon Co-Innovation Space in Singapore or the Superstart Lab in LG Sciencepark located in South Korea), mentorship, technical support, and assistance in expanding their existing markets.
In Singapore, a startup from South Korea, Deep-In-Sight, and five local startups, Datakrew, Extend My Runway, Flow Tech, Tack One and WeavAir, have been confirmed at Infineon's Co-Innovation Space. More than just a workspace, this is a year-long commitment backed by technologies, expertise, and guidance from Infineon in Singapore and around the world to help startups fast-track their product development for commercialization
