Research Fab Microelectronics Germany

To reinforce the position of Europe’s semiconductor and electronics industry within global competition, eleven institutes within the Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics - including the Fraunhofer ISIT - have, together with the Leibniz Institute for Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics (IHP) and the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik (FBH), come up with a concept for a cross-location research factory for microelectronics and nanoelectronics.

Brief Portrait

Research and Production at one Location

Fraunhofer ISIT in Itzehoe is one of Europe's most modern research facilities for microelectronics and microsystems technology. The heart of the institute are the cleanroom facilities, big enough to operate not only research projects but also to produce the developed microchips in industrial scale. 190 scientists develop at ISIT in close cooperation with industrial partners power electronic components and microsystems, with fine movable structures for sensors (pressure, movement, biochemical analysis, etc.) and actuators (valves, scanners, micromirrors etc.) including the necessary electronics. These miniaturized components are used in medicine, in the environment - and traffic engineering, communication technology, automotive industry and mechanical engineering.
