Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest application-oriented research organization. Our research efforts are geared entirely to people’s needs: health, security, communication, energy and the environment.

As a result, the work undertaken by our researchers and developers has a significant impact on people’s lives. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft takes its name from Joseph von Fraunhofer (1787–1826), the illustrious Munich researcher, inventor and entrepreneur.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is one of the world’s leading application-oriented research institutions for microelectronic and IT system solutions and services. By driving technology ideas and anticipating and inspiring the technologies and applications of tomorrow, we are playing a major role in maintaining Germany’s technological leadership.

Our IC designers and design automation specialists develop solutions to meet the increasingly demanding requirements of industry, without being tied to any specific technology or manufacturer. The expertise built up by Fraunhofer IIS has made us one of Europe’s leading IC design houses. The focus of our activities lies on digital and mixed-signal design flows, as well as, on design solutions for increasingly complex electronic and mechatronic systems. We are developing miniaturized intelligent sensor systems that gather a person’s most important vital parameters around the clock, which are of essential relevance as well in the clinical as in the ambulant sphere. Signal and data processing methods assure medically valid information. In different applications and projects we developed patient-supporting sensors and systems that can be used in everyday life.
