Matter: Connecting different products, protocols, and ecosystems into a smarter home

As the number of smart home devices increases, the interoperability between the different products, ecosystems and protocols gets more complicated. Infineon brings 20+ years of experience as a global supplier to IoT companies of all sizes and we know that Matter-enabled IoT solutions need to be reliable, secured, and easy to implement. Our portfolio of products that support the open-source Matter standard are designed to accelerate the creation of innovative, sustainable smart home products, regardless of the connectivity protocols.

With the Matter standard, consumers can expect:

Strong security > Proven, pervasive and robust security for privacy and data

Universal interoperability > All Matter-enabled products across ecosystems work together and can be controlled with the preferred system

Easier consumer experience > All devices are compatible and can easily be integrated, controlled and monitored

Reliable connectivity > Enables low-power products in the smart home

Reduced costs > Device makers create less device variants for different ecosystems, while manufacturing these devices becomes simpler and more cost-effective

Intuitive sensing > Enables accurate and reliable sensing for smart devices


Reasons to build with Matter include:

  • Lower latency and higher reliability than cloud-to-cloud connection, because Matter is an IP-based local connectivity protocol.
  • Lower development costs: build once and it works for all Matter-certified ecosystems.
  • Consistent setup experience across all Matter-enabled devices.
  • Device sharing and control via other Matter-compatible ecosystems.
  • Wide variety of supported devices with different hardware platforms (Wi-Fi-Thread-Ethernet) being interoperable.
