Infineon receives the German Business Innovation Award 2001
Infineon Technologies, among other things a manufacturer of semiconductor solutions for memory components, was awarded the German Industry Innovation Prize 2001 in the 'Large Companies' category for two new power semiconductor families.
This should reduce the power consumption of household appliances by approx. 30%. The development called 'CoolMOS' also offers new approaches for power supply in computers and especially notebooks. According to Infineon, future power supplies should work more compact and quieter, but also significantly more powerful and reliable, since 'the flow of energy to electrical consumers is regulated very precisely and reliably'. As the press release shows, Dr. Reinhard Bloss has a technology lead over the competition of an estimated 15 months through 'CoolMOS'. However, the prize will not be handed over until Saturday, January 19th, in the Alte Oper in Frankfurt.
