Kick-off for joint project “Green mobility “made in Saxony” – Innovative solutions for future-oriented automotive and industrial applications (Future Mobility)”

The Dresden-based semiconductor manufacturer Infineon Technologies Dresden GmbH & Co. KG wants to develop technologies for the mobility of the future together with three medium-sized companies and seven research institutions from Saxony. The joint project “Future Mobility” therefore aims to develop innovative solutions along the entire value chain – from product design and development to technology development, process innovation and high-volume production – in order to enable new types of power products and systems for future automotive electronics solutions.

In addition to Fabmatics, nine other cooperation partners (Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf e.V., Dresden University of Applied Sciences, Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems, Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology, LEC GmbH, Systema Systementwicklung Dipl.-Inf. Manfred Austen GmbH, Chemnitz University of Technology, Dresden University of Technology; Chair of Technical Logistics and West Saxon University of Applied Sciences Zwickau) are involved in the project. Under the leadership of Infineon Dresden, they are developing innovative solutions for microcontrollers and power semiconductors, from initial product ideas to high-volume production.

Saxony’s Minister of Economics and Labor Martin Dulig symbolically handed over the funding approval to the project partners in Dresden on November 28, 2023.

As part of this overall project, Fabmatics is involved in the sub-project “Digitization of further life stages of automation systems (planning, development, production)”. The main objective of the sub-project is to make the time from the initial idea to the usability of automation systems in semiconductor production more efficient. In collaboration with Infineon, Fabmatics is investigating the entire value chain from specification, production and integration of new automation solutions through to the start of semiconductor production in order to find solutions for significantly reducing the time from application development to production (time-to-market).

The European Union and the Free State of Saxony are funding the research and development project with around 17.7 million euros. This measure is co-financed with tax revenue on the basis of the budget approved by the Saxon state parliament.
