Infineon Unveils Integrated Power Stage for Complex Systems

Germany-based semiconductor maker Infineon Technologies AG IFNNY recently introduced its integrated power stage family to provide a comprehensive “multiphase voltage regulation (VR) system solution” for server, storage and communications systems. This news may have probably impacted investor sentiment, for Infineon’s shares rose 1.3% to close at $13.84 on March 23, 2016.

Infineon asserts that the power stage family can obtain power efficiency rating as high as 96% and can be easily integrated with the company’s latest generation digital Pulse Width Modulation (“PWM”) power management controllers for improved performance. The success of multicore processors like ASICs and FPGA largely depends on efficient power management. Infineon’s latest offerings help in this regard as it reduces power loss substantially. Moreover, the integrated power stage can also simplify the design of VR solutions that is crucial for superior quality performance of multicore processors.

Measuring 5 mm x 6 mm and using current rating as low as 70 Amperes, the PQFN SMD package can further support phase reduction in multiphase systems. Some of the other notable features of the new system include smart self-protection and ability to provide precise information about temperature and current usage.

The product launch reflects Infineon’s strategy to continuously introduce highly energy efficient solutions with great power density that is extensively being deployed in contemporary enterprise power applications. We believe Infineon is keen to capitalize on dominating market trends, to stay ahead of its peers. Demand for energy-efficient products is on the rise and the company has been consistently introducing innovative semiconductors that minimize power loss and maximize savings. As semiconductors form the backbone of almost all existing industrial processes, the company is confident of its growth prospects in the times ahead.

Infineon currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Some better-ranked stocks in the industry are Broadcom Limited AVGO, FormFactor Inc. FORM and Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. MLNX. All the three stocks carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
