The CEO of Infineon recently announced that due to strong market demand, the company will overcome difficulties and advance the completion of the Austrian Villach 300mm fab, which was originally scheduled to be completed at the end of 2021, to the summer.

According to report by local media, the chips produced by Infineon’s Austrian plant will mainly be supplied to the European automotive and machinery industries.

The report also pointed out that the building structure and infrastructure of the new plant have basically been completed, and production equipment and testing systems have begun to be delivered and installed. If there are no major changes in the Covid-19 epidemic, production should be possible by the end of September 2021 at the latest.
