Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems IMS

Fraunhofer IMS

 

The Fraunhofer IMS exists as an independent institute of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft since midyear 1984. In 1987, the staff moved into the specially constructed institute building that, according to rising requirements, was constructional extended in the years 1992, 2001 and 2005. The formation and development were carried out by the institute director of long duration Prof. Dr. Günter Zimmer. Since January 1st 2006, Prof. Dr. Anton Grabmaier has been in charge of our institute.
In accordance with the general principle of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft the Fraunhofer IMS carries out research, development and pilot fabrication of microelectronic solutions for industrial and public clients. Our second source of income consists of customers from the semiconductor industry.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems (IMS) was established in Duisburg in 1984. The Fraunhofer IMS is, through continued growth and innovative research and development, one of the leading institutes in Germany for applied research and development in microelectronics and CMOS-technology. Fraunhofer IMS offers a wide range of services and production of in silicon based devices and systems. The fabrication takes place in class ten cleanrooms, wafertesting rooms and an assembly-line with together more than 2500 square meters.
Fraunhofer IMS develops, produces and assembles smart sensors, integrated circuits and discrete elements (ICs and ASICs). It also offers the fabrication of devices on a professionally managed CMOS production line in small to medium quantities. In the new microsystems technology lab (MST-Lab) we integrate different micro- and nanofunctions directly on top of the signal processing CMOS circuits. This procedure is called post-processing. (600 square meters) The ICs are assembled in the cleanroom (400 square meters) of Fraunhofer IMS assembly facility. This facility supports the production of ICs in ceramic packages or as COB (Chip on board, COB). COB assembly is available from small quantities to several million units per year.
The Fraunhofer IMS offers R&D services tailored to our customer needs, providing efficient solutions ranging from the initial studies to the series products.

Cooperation possibilities:

  • Studies and feasibility studies
    Consulting and concept development
    Demonstrator and prototype development
    Chip production (ASIC Production)
    Development of soft- and hardware

Safe information flows and smooth processes as well as long-term stable IT-systems are vital for the success of business ventures and projects of enterprises and of the public sector. Furthermore, specific information supply becomes more and more relevant to private users, for instance for mobile devices – for example within the context of health care or for early warning systems for severe weather.
We aim at supporting our customers and partners with creating such complex IT-systems as well as with implementing adequate solutions for secure provision of information according to the needs. Since the institute was founded in the year 1992, highly skilled ISST-researchers systematically developed industrial standards, reliable architectures and customized concepts. Furthermore, with COMPARC, our “Competence Center for Architectures and Processes” we established a One-Stop-Shop for business process-management and IT-architectures.

Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology UMSICHT

Fraunhofer UMSICHT

 

Fraunhofer UMSICHT sees itself as a forerunner for technological change in the areas of environmental, energy, process technologyand safety. The institute advances sustainable economizing, environmentally friendly technologies, and innovative activitiesin order to improve the quality of life for humans.
Four key research areas form the strategic foundation for the technological positioning of the institute in the German and international research landscape:

  • Biorefinery
  • Information networks
  • Matfunc
  • Modular Energy Technologies

The key research areas are to be seen as scientific impulses for overarching business units. With them, the profile of the institute is adapted to the rhythm of economic and social change and focused on promising research directions.

Our customers are industrial enterprises, service companies and public authorities. Together with them Fraunhofer UMSICHT develops and researches the latest know-how and transfers it into industrial applications and marketable products.
