The IoT is reality

Smart technologies are changing the world

According to the market researchers at IoT Analytics, there were already 11.7 billion IoT connections at the end of 2020. In other words, the Internet of Things has long since ceased to be pure science fiction. It is now a fully-functioning reality.

Everyday objects, buildings, cars, and even factories are smart, interconnected, and interact with their surroundings. Devices and processes run automatically and independently – without human intervention – on the back of data and algorithms. IoT technologies are helping to overcome social challenges, increase benefits for people, and boost productivity in industry.

Over the coming weeks, you will discover even more about the IoT’s boundless opportunities on this website. You will also find out about the all-in-one solutions from Infineon that enable IoT applications to be realized quickly and securely.

Microelectronics are the enabler of each IoT device

Digital transformation and innovation without microchips is unimaginable. As the “raw material”, they are also an elementary component of the IoT. They connect the real with the digital world. Experience our wide range of solutions spanning sensors, microcontrollers, actuators, communication modules, and security components all of which work together seamlessly.

We make IoT work!

With the IoT, ?smart“ isn’t a promise anymore, it’s the reality

Whether you monitor environmental data in real-time in cities or at the sea, whether we reorganize traffic in cities, enable rescue missions in remote locations with drones, or manage agricultural land in a resource-efficient manner and in real-time: The IoT helps people make the right decisions with the help of technology - smart, appropriate, based on reliable data, forward-looking, resource-efficient, and incredibly fast. At the heart of it, it is always about creating benefits for people.
