Lantiq is a fabless semiconductor company of approximately 1,000 people based in Germany.


Lantiq's central functions and the executive management team are located in Neubiberg near Munich in Germany. Lantiq makes semiconductor products for computer networks used by common carrier telecommunications companies in access networks and home networking. On July 7, 2009 Infineon Technologies announced it agreed to sell its wire-based communications division to Golden Gate Capital.[1] It was one of several steps to raise cash during the Great Recession.[2] Some technology had been acquired when Infineon purchased China-based ADMTek (partially owned by Accton Technology Corporation) for about US$100 million in cash in 2004.[3] Some assets and patents acquired from Massachusetts-based Aware Inc for about US$6.75 million were included in the spinoff.[4][5] The division was headed by Christian Wolff when the deal closed on November 6, 2009 for about 243 million Euros.[6]

Lantiq sells system-on-a-chip products and other integrated circuits for technologies including the digital subscriber line family, VoIP, wireless LAN, Gigabit Ethernet and passive optical networks. In January 2011 Lantiq announced home networking technology compliant with the ITU-T standard using the brand name XWAY HNX.[7]

In May 2012, Dan Artusi from Conexant replaced Wolff as chief executive.[8]
