Infineon supplies millions of power semiconductors for ventilators
German chip company Infineon is supplying around 38 million power semiconductor devices for use in medical ventilators where they control motors.

Demand is high for ventilators as the last line of defence for individuals struck down by the Covid-19 pandemic.

"As the global market leader for these components, we are focusing on being able to make these products available on short notice," said Helmut Gassel, chief marketing officer, with Infineon Technologies AG (Munich, Germany). "We are currently experiencing a shift toward medical equipment. Numerous manufacturers are expanding or changing their product focus and asking us for the necessary components in order to quickly meet the special demand," he added.

ResMed Inc. (San Diego, Calif.) is a leading supplier of positive air pressure equipment for treating respiratory conditions. Mick Farrell, CEO of ResMed, said: "Infineon’s efforts to quickly provide these semiconductors are truly lifesaving. ResMed and other ventilator producers can only meet the world’s demand for these devices if component manufacturers like Infineon can meet ours. Thanks to Infineon and others for rising to this unprecedented challenge."
