In an update last week, D&B Editor Tim Green highlighted Infineon Technologies’ positive financial performance amid increased capital investments and a historic acquisition. Germany’s largest chip maker, Infineon has reported three years of revenue growth, hitting about $5.5 billion in fiscal 2014. The growth was powered by automakers and other manufacturers looking to make products more efficient and smarter. During this time, the company has been spending big on new equipment to move production of its power semiconductors from 200mm wafers to 300mm wafers; it also made its largest acquisition to date with the $3 billion deal for US-based International Rectifier, which will open up new areas of the power semiconductor market.
