Welcome to Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics

Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics

Fraunhofer-Verbund Mikroelektronik

This year, the Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics celebrates its twentieth anniversary. The 18 member institutes now form Europe’s leading R&D service provider for smart systems. Whether it is the energy turnaround, modern medical engineering, or Industry 4.0 – none of the future issues facing German industry can be dealt with without powerful microelectronics. Since 1996, the Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics has bundled the expertise of its individual members – with the aim of providing German industry with optimum support in developing top products. 

The Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics, founded in 1996, is a service provider for R&D in the areas of microelectronics and smart systems integration. As part of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Europe's largest organization for application-oriented research, it combines the expertise of 11 Fraunhofer institutes (plus seven guest institutes) with a total of more than 3,000 employees.


The activities of the 16 member institutes and research institutions are coordinated by the business office in Berlin. This central coordination office forms the portal between the institutes on the one hand and science, business, and government on the other.


The employees of the business office of the Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics are also responsible for the development and monitoring of a common strategy as well as for the cross-institutional public relations. 

Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics - Mission


At the Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics we are carrying out internationally networked cutting-edge research for the production and development location Europe in the areas of:


• micro-/ nanoelectronics,

• microsystems and communications technology


With a unique range of expertise not found elsewhere in the world, we bridge the gap between fundamental research and product development.


The Vehicle Electronics department at Fraunhofer IISB has reached the final of the “Little Box Challenge” organized by Google. The aim of the international competition is the development of a 2 kW solar inverter with efficiency of over 95 % in order to drive forward the use of regenerative energies. The IISB solution is one of...
