Infineon Technologies AG has acquired the Berlin-based startup Industrial Analytics IA GmbH. Thus, Infineon is strengthening its software and services business in artificial intelligence for predictive analysis. Particularly, those relating to machinery and industrial equipment. Infineon is acquiring 100 percent of the company’s shares. Both parties have agreed not to disclose the amount of the transaction.
Peter Wawer, President of Infineon’s Industrial Power Control division, said Industrial Analytics has outstanding expertise in predictive analysis for industrial machinery and equipment using artificial intelligence. In addition, Wawer said, “We intend to jointly expand Industrial Analytics’ business and to offer Infineon’s industrial customers new AI solutions that complement our semiconductor portfolio.”
“Together with Infineon, we can accelerate our growth path of the past years,” said Anja Vedder, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Industrial Analytics. “With Infineon, we not only gain a strong partner, we also receive access to Infineon’s system knowledge as a leading semiconductor company. We will benefit enormously from this.”
Industrial Analytics develops artificial intelligence solutions which for example monitor plants for early detection of critical developments, based on analysis and evaluation of vibrations. The AI solutions from Industrial Analytics not only evaluate data for predictive maintenance, but also provide recommendations for action (prescriptive maintenance).
Infineon Technologies is a world leader in semiconductor solutions that make life easier, safer and greener. Microelectronics from Infineon are the key to a better future. With around 50,280 employees worldwide, Infineon generated revenue of about €11.1 billion in the 2021 fiscal year (ending 30 September).
