Infineon receives Bosch supplier award for SiGe 77GHz automotive radar chips

At its 14th Global Supplier Award ceremony in Stuttgart, Germany, Robert Bosch GmbH has presented Dr Reinhard Ploss, CEO of Munich-based Infineon Technologies AG, with an award in the 'Innovations' category in recognition of the firm's RASIC (radar system IC) product family of silicon germanium (SiGe)-based 77GHz monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) radar chips.This is the fifth time that Infineon has been awarded as a supplier.

The Bosch Global Supplier Award recognizes outstanding performance (in quality, costs, logistics and innovations) in the manufacture and supply of products or services. In 2015, Bosch honored 58 suppliers from 11 countries, in the five categories of 'Innovations', 'Purchasing of indirect materials', 'Raw materials and components', 'Electronics and electromechanics' and 'Mechanics'.

"We are proud to have made a key contribution to the development of driver assistance systems that offer extensive benefits in terms of safety and comfort," said Ploss. Radar chips in innovative packaging help to reduce system costs. This is creating new sales opportunities for Bosch and Infineon, since such cost reductions are making radar systems affordable for compact vehicles as well, says Infineon.

Already a standard feature in many premium and high-end vehicles, radar sensors measure the distance between vehicles in front of, next to and behind the vehicle they are installed in. Bosch's radar system is used for adaptive cruise control (ACC), as well as emergency braking and traffic jam assist systems. Infineon supplies the chips that transmit and receive radar signals in order to measure distances to other vehicles and objects. Infineon has integrated its radar chips in packages without affecting transmission and reception quality. Infineon is the world's second-biggest manufacturer of chips for automotive electronic systems, and the number one manufacturer in Europe. Every new vehicle built in the world currently is equipped with 55 components from Infineon on average.
