I may say automotive electronics are tones more demanding than household stuff. You can afford a deadly failure in the car if the electronics stop working. The power supply for example is crucially important. With long cables, messy noisy environment (especially in EV) and mechanically induced noise, the power supply condition is awful so good and robust power supply design is essential. It seems Infineon is so determined to bet their investment on automotive market. Smart bet!

Yeah, but the fact that Tesla chose Infineon says something about the conversion efficiency of Infineon's parts. It may apply to other markets, like solar.

Unless the chip is $300 per one, this is not a great news. How many cars will Tesla sell? I think the news is no news.

Tesla Motors= 100K Premium Segment EV= not many people buy it = low sales for infineon. So whats the point!

Success of this vehicle will depend on how they will price this vehicle. I hope this will be huge success and thus inturn help reduce carbon emission.

Hopefully Tesla will be able to sell enough of their Model-S to make this worthwhile for Infineon.

Electric powered vehicle seems like the future transportation. High efficiency of power conversion is going to be important. What's the differences of the characteristic of powering a vehicle vs powering a household appliance? Is there any common area that will drive the R&D of power chip for vehicle to other areas?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
