German electronics company Infineon Technologies has become a technology partner of Amazon Web Services (AWS). Infineon enables IoT device makers to develop and integrate their products into the AWS cloud.
The company’s security and microcontroller products have passed multiple validations for Amazon Free RTOS and AWS Greengrass IoT Core. They are available now for purchase as IoT developer boards through the AWS partner device catalogue:

  • Optiga trusted platform module for secured zero touch edge device provisioning to the AWS Greengrass IoT SW platform.
  • XMC4800 Ethercat wifi connectivity kit to enable easy and secured use of sensors featuring AI functionalities provided by AWS through its cloud services.
  • Optiga Trust X for security for IoT devices.
Infineon’s sensors, microcontrollers and security controllers allow connected devices to sense, compute and secure data streams for intelligent, efficient aggregation and analysis be it on premise or in the cloud.
With its hardware components, Infineon provides an open source software environment for users to develop and integrate their IoT devices with cloud-connected services.
Protecting digital identities is key for running data-sensitive applications in M2M and cloud communications. A chain of trust using hardware-based security anchors protects digital identities and keys from logical and physical attacks. It also helps securely connect IoT end nodes such as connected production machinery or surveillance cameras with dedicated on-premises edge platforms and cloud servers.
To meet the requirements of various industries, Infineon and the members of the Infineon Security Partner Network (ISPN) develop tailored security based on chip technology.
At the third IoT Security Circle taking place in Munich on 28 May 2019, Infineon and its partners will be presenting cloud offerings for a multitude of IoT applications, from automotive to industrial to mobile applications.
Cap Gemini says sit it has migrated Louisiana Pacific's SAP landscape to AWS in less than four months. Louisiana Pacific, a building services company, expects the AWS environment will help it scale production with demand, operate more efficiently and better serve its customers while saving $5m over five years.
