Infineon Technologies CEO Says Company Is Well Insulated From US-China Tensions

Reuters | |

German chipmaker Infineon Technologies is relatively well insulated from geopolitical tensions between the United States and China thanks to its focus on power-management chips, CEO Reinhard Ploss said on Wednesday.

Outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration has imposed trade curbs on Chinese telecoms equipment and smartphone maker Huawei, seeking to hobble its ability to equip next-generation 5G mobile networks.

Although Infineon is a Huawei supplier, its main power-management products tie it more to China’s broad industrial development than to 5G, Ploss told the Morgan Stanley European Technology, Media and Telecoms conference.
