Infineon has extended its long term partnership with Vitesco Technologies in a deal worth €1bn.

Vitesco, currently being acquired by Schaeffler, uses the Aurix high-performance microcontrollers from Infineon in its electronic systems for new vehicle E/E architectures. The deal aims to secure  strategically important supply of components for its electromobility business.

Vitesco will use the Aurix TC4x microcontroller family in its next generation of master and zone controllers for electric-electronic vehicle architectures as well as in its new electrification system designs from 2027.

The companies intend to work together to further improve the efficiency and system costs of future electrified vehicles while taking functional safety and cybersecurity in compliance with ISO 26262 and ISO/SAE 21434 into account.

“Microcontrollers are core components in our electronic systems. Our partnership with Infineon gives us the tremendous advantage of being able to define at an early stage the properties and capabilities that the future automotive microcontrollers will have. This allows us to help proactively shape the path leading to the software-defined vehicle of tomorrow,” said Thomas Stierle, member of the Executive Board of Vitesco Technologies and head of the Electrification Solutions division of Vitesco Technologies.

“The system know-how and expertise of leading innovation drivers like Vitesco Technologies are helping establish our microcontroller family AURIX TC4x as an important component in the development of the next generation of E/E architectures,” said Peter Schiefer, President of Infineon’s Automotive Division. “We are proud to further intensify our collaboration with Vitesco Technologies and to work together on the future of mobility.”;
