Fraunhofer ISIT in Itzehoe is one of Europe's most modern research facilities for microelectronics and microsystems technology. At the heart of the institute are the clean room facilities, large enough not only to conduct research but also to manufacture the developed microchips on an industrial scale.
In close cooperation with partners from industry, 180 scientists at ISIT develop power electronics components and microsystems with fine moving structures for sensor technology (pressure, motion, biochemical analytics, etc.) and actuator technology (valves, scanners, mirror arrays, etc.), including the necessary packaging technology. These miniaturized components are used in medicine, environmental and traffic engineering, communications technology, the automotive industry and mechanical engineering.
