Infineon grows its chip development capabilities in Romania with further expansion in Iași
More than 10 years ago Infineon started involving local Iași partners in the development of semiconductor chips. With competences and scale of activities growing and a strong cooperation with the Technical University, in 2022 Infineon decided to establish on own office in Iași. Same year, NoBug Consulting, a Romanian engineering company with an important team in Iași specialized in providing digital verification and design services, became part of Infineon.
Today Infineon marks an important milestone with the extension and official inauguration of its Iași office, proving its commitment to further grow local high-tech semiconductor chip development. The teams in Iași develop semiconductor solutions for automotive and IoT applications.
“Iaşi alumni have been part of Infineon in Romania since the beginning, in 2005, and had a key contribution to Infineon becoming the strongest semiconductor company in Romania. It is an important milestone to celebrate the inauguration of Infineon Iași today. We appreciate the high level of education in microelectronics and computer science and are proud to have a strong partnership with Gheorghe Asachi Technical University of Iași. Our team in Iași, together with Infineon experts from around the world, will contribute to mastering two major challenges of our times: decarbonization and digitalization.” said Guenter Krasser, Vice President and Managing Director of Infineon Romania.
