Today, I am honored to be joined with Mr.Lee Seung-Soo, the country manager of the Korean branch of Infineon Technologies)  (Hello Mr. Lee, first of all, thank you very much for accepting this interview.  I know that Infineon Technologies headquarters is based in Germany and Infineon Technologies Korea’s branch is located in Samseong-dong, Gannamgu, Seoul).  Would you please share with us an introduction about Infineon Technologies?) Mr. Lee Seung Soo  :  In the 2020 fiscal year (ending 30 September), Infineon reported revenue of more than €8.5 billion with a workforce of some 46,700 people worldwide. Following the acquisition of the US company Cypress Semiconductor Corporation in April 2020, Infineon is now a global top 10 semiconductor company. We play a key role in shaping a better future – with microelectronics that link the real and the digital world. Our semiconductors enable efficient energy management, smart mobility, as well as secure, seamless communications in an increasingly connected world. Infineon Technologies Korea is located in Samseong-dong, Gangnam and working around 240 employees. Also we set up the sales office in Daegu to provide qualified support for customers in South area. Major customers are Hyundai Motor group, Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics and Infineon Korea have ranked No.1 in Automotive semiconductor area.  Reporter   (Thank you for the introduction. Would you please describe what the organizational culture (OD & Culture) and ideal Talent Style of Infineon Technologies Korea is?) Mr. Lee Seung Soo  :   Infineon Korea respects Korean culture based on IFX head quarter’s structure. All employees are responsible for own work and we place a high value on exchanging necessary feedback each other. There’s a communication format called Leadership dialogue that not only the manager give feedback to the staffs, but the staffs also give feedback to their manager.  Infineon Korea is working on a campaign to call nickname instead of Korean title. We will continue this campaign to make more respectful and equal organizational culture.  Reporter   (Would you please outline the compensation & benefits (C&B) and HR (HRM) system of Infineon Technologies Korea?) Mr. Lee Seung Soo: Infineon Korea provides ‘Flexible spending account’ what employees can use this one like credit card anywhere, anytime.

Semiconductors account for 18% of the total cost of automotive electronics in 2000 but it’s 40% in 2020. The demand has increased significantly but only few foundry companies produce automotive semiconductor because it’s not profitable. It’s expected to continue overeating of automotive semiconductors for a while due to great interest of autonomous driving, electric vehicles and COVID pandemic. To counteract this problem, Infineon is doing the best to find good solutions for our customers. Reporter -  (Lastly, as a mentor who contributes so much to his community, please share with us any wisdom you may have for young job seekers) Mr. Lee Seung Soo:  We are living in an era of rapid change and COVID pandemic has made it harder to get a job. But the economic is slowly recovering and I believe there are opportunities even though it’s a difficult situation. It’s late if you start preparing when the good opportunity happened.

If you decide a job you want to do, I’d like to recommend that you get information about the company you want to work as much as you can. It would be helpful that find the company’s management direction, changes in the industry and company’s outlook. Many companies want you if If you can clearly show your potential and your goals to contribute within the company.

  • [단독외신] New high voltage battery housing for lightweight emobility developed by Evonik and partners
    New high voltage battery housing for lightweight emobility developed by Evonik and partners       New high voltage battery housing for lightweight e- mobility developed by Evonik and partners   • Novel SMC materials reduce battery housing weight by ~10% while maintaining strength and high voltage performance • Lightweight battery components deliver significant energy savings to ensure suitability for all vehicle size and classes • Evonik’s new epoxy SMC – VESTALITE® S curing agent enables lightweight design and production flexibility   Essen, Germany. Evonik as part of a consortium of companies, has developed a lighter and more cost-effective battery concept for e- mobility solutions. The new holistic battery system concept offers the automotive industry a safer and more energy efficient lightweight alternative to the heavier metal-based, or higher priced carbon fiber-reinforced plastics. Although millions of electric cars and plug-in hybrids are already on the roads worldwide, there are still no generally applicable standards for the individual components. However, significant efforts are currently being made to standardize individual vehicle assemblies and establish a cross-market component standard. Increasing the range of the vehicles by improving the storage capacity of the batteries and efficient energy recovery is currently one of the main areas of focus. In addition, reducing the weight of the individual vehicle components can also help to reduce the amount of energy required to overcome driving resistance (e.g. tire rolling, gradient, acceleration). To this end, Evonik, Forward Engineering, LION Smart, Lorenz Kunststofftechnik and Vestaro (a joint venture of Evonik and Forward Engineering), began working together on a modular- multi-material approach at the end of 2019. Today, the partnership has developed a brand-independent, cost-effective solution that significantly reduces the weight of the battery housing by approximately 10 percent compared to other commonly used material combinations, without any loss in mechanical properties. Developed for three different battery-sizes, 65kWh, 85 kWh and 120 kWh for use in various vehicles sizes and class, one of the key elements of the new battery concept is the glass fiber (GF)- Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) cover. Based on the high-performance epoxy curing agent VESTALITE® S from Evonik, the new SMC delivers the performance levels of the previous metal-based battery enclosures, while being significantly lighter than the current more cost-prohibitive SMC Materials. “Battery modules and their housing has become a key area for improving the performance, efficiency and affordability of modern electric vehicles,” said Dr. Leif Ickert, Marketing Manager Composites and Adhesives, Evonik Operations GmbH & Managing Director, Vestaro GmbH. “Composite technologies provide strength and versatility, so offer a very promising solution for future battery system concepts. Our new glass fiber-reinforced SMC delivers the performance and economic benefits the automotive industry requires to push ahead with the next generation of sustainable e-mobility concepts.” The glass-fiber-reinforced epoxy SMC has excellent mechanical properties including flexural and impact strength, and by using epoxy resin instead of the usual polyester resin, other problems often encountered during downstream processing of glass-fiber- reinforced SMC materials have been eliminated. Additionally, it meets all specifications regarding fire resistance and is easy to process even when complex geometries are demanded. The entire concept was successfully tested for suitability for series production and safety even under extreme conditions. Additionally, consortium partner, Lorenz Kunststofftechnik has developed an established process for successfully recycling glass fiber-reinforced SMC materials – an important argument in view of the increasing sustainability requirements in the automotive industry.   For more detailed information about the new battery housing concept, images and additional quotes from the consortium’s partners please visit evonik.com/vestalite-s. For specific information about Evonik’s new VESTALITE® S epoxy curing agent please visit www.vestalite.com. About Evonik Evonik is one of the world leaders in specialty chemicals.

  • [단독외신] Sneaker site StockX valued at $2.8 billion in new funding roun
    Sneaker site StockX valued at $2.8 billion in new funding roun    a fast-growing web destination of hard-to-find sneakers — said Wednesday it had raised $275 million in a new funding round that values the company at $2.8 billion. The latter figure, which includes the value of the fresh pile of cash, follows an exclusive report by The Post on Dec. 7, which said the company was looking to raise about $250 million at a valuation of $2.5 billion. The fast growing auction house has more than doubled its valuation from its January 2019 last major fund-raising round that valued it at a little over $1 billion. The Detroit-based company is currently planning to file for an initial public offering in mid-2021, according to sources close to the situation. Proceeds are expected to fuel growth in Asia for the site, which assigns ticker symbols to sneakers in a scrolling feed that displays bids, offers and green and red arrows to show how prices are moving. Cleveland Cavaliers Owner Dan Gilbert is a cofounder and rapper Eminem is an early investor. StockX, which authenticates all the sneakers it resells, charges a 9 to 14 percent commission on transactions. Eminem Getty Images While many of the sneakers on the site are being offered for resale after being snatched up in limited edition sales, most have never been worn. The pandemic has helped the business as it is harder now to shop at stores for sneakers, executives have said. The average sale on the site is about $230, according to an investor presentation reviewed by The Post. Despite its growth, it still projects losing $56 million this year, according to its presentation.

  • [단독외신] Marriott axes more than 800 workers at Times Square hotel
    Marriott axes more than 800 workers at Times Square hotel     Marriott Marquis in Times Square Getty Images   Marriott plans to permanently lay off more than 800 workers at its Times Square hotel as the coronavirus crisis keeps New York City’s hospitality industry in a chokehold. The 852 workers at the New York Marriott Marquis will be axed for good on March 12 — almost exactly a year after they were put on temporary layoff as the pandemic bore down on the Big Apple, the hotel giant said in a notice filed with the state Department of Labor. “These are actions we never thought would become necessary at our location,” the hotel’s general manager told the laid-off staffers in a Dec. 9 letter, according to The Wall Street Journal. “The unprecedented severity of the COVID-19 crisis, however, has forced the location to make these difficult decisions.” The Times Square Marriott initially furloughed 1,265 employees this past March as the state shut non-essential businesses and the city emptied of tourists and business travelers who would normally fill hotel rooms, according to the labor notice. Marriott did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday, but a company spokeswoman told the Journal that the staffers who remain employed have either returned to work or are expected to come back soon. The pandemic has kept New York City’s hotel industry under pressure even though officials have lifted some of the strict lockdown measures that were imposed this spring. Hotel occupancy was still about 80 percent below normal levels last month as the city and state battled an uptick in infections, the Associated Press reported, citing data from the Hotel Association of New York City. Maryland-based Marriott, meanwhile, saw its net profits for the July-to-September quarter plunge 74 percent to $100 million from $387 million in the same period last year. The company’s shares were trading up about 2.4 percent at $129.63 as of 3:48 p.m. Tuesday, a price that puts the stock down about 14 percent for the year.

  • [단독외신] Warren Buffett and Goldman Sachs boss call for small business relief
    Warren Buffett and Goldman Sachs boss call for small business relief     Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett REUTERS       Warren Buffett is warning Congress that it needs to stop dithering on economic stimulus or risk the future of American small business. The Oracle of Omaha teamed up with Goldman Sachs chief David Solomon Tuesday morning to put the screws to politicians who have yet to put through a second round of pandemic relief funding despite the fact that the coronavirus is ravaging the nation and pushing many small businesses over the brink. “It’s an economic war,” exclaimed the totemic 90-year-old investor during an interview with CNBC. “We’ve shut down a lot of people in this induced recession and others are prospering, and I think the country owes it to the millions of small business people.” Solomon echoed Buffett’s message, expressing optimism in the release of vaccines this week but cautioning that 50 percent of the participants in Goldman’s “10,000 Small Businesses” program have stopped paying their staff. “While you can see the finish line, I think a lot of these small businesses need help getting across the finish line,” Solomon said. The power pair are part of an increasingly strident chorus of Wall Street bigwigs pushing on Washington to get a new bill done. JPMorgan Chase honcho Jamie Dimon sounded off on the stalled stimulus talks during a Nov. 18 appearance at a financial conference. “Now we have this big debate “Is it $2.2 trillion, $1.5 trillion?” You gotta be kidding me!” Dimon said. “I mean just split the baby and move on! This is childish behavior on the part of our politicians.” Congress does appear to be listening. On Monday, leaders from both chambers released a new plan that would extend some benefits from the first round relief funding while also putting $700 million in the hands of small businesses. But Buffett made it clear on Tuesday that any proposal needs to be acted on immediately. “It’s gotta happen soon,” he warned “I mean, their boat’s going down.”

  • [단독외신] Honda recalls 1.4M vehicles in US for software, overheating problems
    Honda recalls 1.4M vehicles in US for software, overheating problems     Enlarge Image Getty Images     Honda is recalling over 1.4 million vehicles in the US to repair drive shafts that can break, window switches that can overheat and a software flaw. The software recall includes 737,000 Accords from 2018 to 2020 and Insights from 2019 and 2020. A programming flaw in a control computer can cause the rear camera, turn signals and windshield wipers to malfunction. Owners will be notified in late January about when they should take their vehicles to a dealer for repairs. Two drive shaft recalls cover 430,000 Honda Civic Hybrids from 2012, the 2007 through 2014 Honda Fit, the 2013 through 2015 Acura ILX and the 2013 through 2015 Honda Accord. They’re in 22 states where salt is used to clear roads in the winter. The drive shafts can break due to corrosion. Dealers will inspect the left and right drive shafts and replace them if needed. Parts aren’t available yet. Owners will get an initial notification in February and will be told later when to go to a dealer. About 268,000 CR-Vs from 2002 through 2006 are included in the power window switch recall. Water can get into an open driver’s window and cause an electrical short, possibly touching off a fire. It’s the second recall for the same issue. The cars were recalled starting in October of 2012, but the repairs didn’t work. Honda says it has reports of 16 fires but no injuries. Honda says owners should take the SUVs in for repairs as soon as they get a recall notice. Those will be mailed starting in late January. Owners can also check https://owners.honda.com/service-maintenance/recalls or call (888) 234-2138 to see if their CR-V is affected.

  • [단독외신] Airbnb stock tumbles after more than doubling last week
    Airbnb stock tumbles after more than doubling last week     Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky Corbis via Getty Images       Wall Street is having second thoughts about Airbnb’s frothy market debut last week. The home-sharing giant’s stock — which more than doubled last week in the company’s initial public offering — tumbled more than 8 percent on Monday after a research firm cut its rating on the shares, citing doubts whether the company’s performance would be able to justify their lofty price. “Investors we’ve spoken with like Airbnb’s business model and want to be long-term holders, but are now looking at selling the stock because they no longer feel comfortable owning it trading at a 300 to 400 percent valuation premium,” Gordon Haskett Capital analyst Robert Mollins wrote, slashing his rating on Airbnb shares to underperform from buy. The home-sharing giant became a publicly traded company last Thursday when its shares surged from its listing price of $68 to as high as $165. They closed at $144.71, giving the company a market cap of $83 billion — more than the market values of Marriott, Hilton and Hyatt combined. On Monday, the shares were recently off 8.3 percent at $127.70. Mollins said his price target for Airbnb’s shares is $103 per share, stating that he remained “positive” in his forecast for the company’s “long term” future. But he added that an “overwhelming majority” of investors he has spoken to are interested in cashing in on their quick gains.  Airbnb’s 39-year-old CEO Brian Chesky got $6.5 billion richer — and tongue-tied, too — last Thursday as the vacation-rental giant’s stock price more than doubled in its blockbuster market debut. The surge drove Chesky’s net worth up to more than $11 billion, giving him a larger fortune than record executive David Geffen and hedge-fund tycoon Steve Cohen, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. “That’s the first time I’ve heard that number,” he told Bloomberg Television, tripping over his words. “So I … I don’t know what else to say. It’s … that’s a … that’s a very … that’s … um … that is … yeah … I’m very humbled by it.”
