The investment is another step by Infineon to expand its presence in Asia and to integrate more tightly into local market structures. In the fiscal year 2010, Infineon generated 42 percent of its revenues in the Asia region including Japan.

In January 2011, Infineon opened a new entity in Beijing, China, called Infineon Integrated Circuits (Beijing) Co., Ltd. In addition to sales and marketing, application R&D and central functions, the new entity houses a technical center for automotive solutions and an IGBT stacks manufacturing facility. IGBTs (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors) are power semiconductors used for instance to drive electric motors in cars or high-speed trains and in renewable energy generation systems.
