Cypress solutions complete Infineon’s portfolio in several areas
|Cypress offers a broad automotive product portfolio that includes AEC-Q100 qualified microcontrollers, flash memories, PMICs, and Human Machine Interface devices. Cypress complements this portfolio with proven system software that has been deployed in production vehicles around the globe.||Cypress’ product portfolio is at the heart of Industrial IoT. Customers have access to a wide-range of high-performance, energy efficient microcontrollers, radios, and memories to power the Industrial IoT.||Society interacts with electronic devices more than ever for personalized productivity, entertainment, and communication. To fully realize their value, these devices require low power processing, ever shrinking sizes, and instant connectivity to the digital world around us.|
You can choose from an enlarged portfolio scope
Infineon products are part of our everyday life: the trains we board are moved by highly energy-efficient drives powered by our IGBT modules. Our sensors, microcontrollers and security solutions make the vision of automated driving a reality. Today, radar systems already support the driver, for instance, by recognizing objects or persons on the road. An emergency brake can be activated automatically, preventing a collision. Our products make life easier, safer and greener.
Cypress' product portfolio is highly complementary. Its portfolio amends Infineon's with general-purpose microcontrollers, connectivity solutions and highly specialized memory products. Combined into one, the complementary portfolio will allow us to provide customers with full solutions in many high-growth markets.
Wi-Fi® and MCU Solutions Purpose-Built for the IoT
|Cypress' WICED Wi-Fi + Bluetooth combos integrate IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN and Bluetooth in a single-chip solution to enable small-form-factor IoT designs. Combo solutions are available for both 1x1 SISO with up to 433 Mbps PHY data rates and 2x2 MIMO with up to 867 Mbps PHY data rates.||Cypress' Wi-Fi® portfolio includes IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions with 1x1 SISO for up to 150 Mbps PHY data rates. These solutions can be coupled with external MCUs from popular vendors or Linux on applications processors to implement a complete Wi-Fi system.||Cypress offers a broad portfolio of low-power to high-performance microcontrollers (MCUs) for various markets. We provide MCUs for the consumer, industrial and automotive markets with our PSoC® MCU, Flexible MCU (FM) and Automotive MCU Portfolios.|
|USB Type-C® is the new USB-IF standard that solves several challenges faced by today's Type-A and Type-B cables and connectors. USB Type-C uses a slimmer connector (measuring only 2.4 mm in height) to allow for increasing miniaturization of consumer and industrial products.||The Semper NOR Flash Memory Family is Cypress' newest high-performance, safe, and reliable NOR Flash memory solution that integrates critical safety features for automotive and industrial systems. With Semper NOR Flash Memory, Cypress introduces the industry's fi¬rst ASIL-B compliant and ASIL-D-ready NOR Flash memory.||Excelon™, Cypress’ next-generation Ferroelectric RAM (F-RAM), delivers the industry’s lowest-power mission-critical nonvolatile memory, by combining ultra-low-power operation with high-speed interfaces, instant nonvolatility and unlimited read/write cycle endurance.|
