Infineon and Anker open joint Innovation Application Center

1 min read

Infineon Technologies has jointly opened an Innovation Application Center in Shenzhen with Anker Innovations, a specialist in developing charging technology.

The centre is intended to pave the way for more energy-efficient and CO2-saving charging solutions that support decarbonisation.

Driven by the growing consumer demand for faster charging solutions the idea of establishing an Anker-Infineon Innovation Application Center goes back to 2021. After two years of preparation, the joint lab now serves as R&D hub for industry experts working to develop power-delivery (PD) fast charging solutions with higher power density, mainly based on Infineon’s next-generation Hybrid Flyback (HFB) controller product family and the CoolGaN IPS for fast chargers above 100W.

With the Innovation Application Center Anker and Infineon will be able to shorten the application cycle and accelerate the time to market for future products.

“Anker is an important customer for Infineon,” said Christian Burrer, Vice President of Systems & Application Marketing of Power & Sensor Systems Division at Infineon Technologies. “We have already started a strong cooperation in the charging field, with product and system solutions covering several Infineon product lines. In the field of PD charging, we provide our customers a comprehensive product portfolio, including state-of-the-art power controllers, first-class switching power supplies, leading silicon MOSFET and GaN transistor performance, and more.”

The joint lab is also focusing on a more diversified range of consumer applications, driven by Infineon’s expertise in wide-bandgap materials such as gallium nitride (GaN) and ties in with the recent acquisition of GaN Systems in 2023.
