Research Fab Microelectronics Germany (FMD)

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


In order to advance future-relevant research topics as efficiently and quickly as possible, the FMD is organized into four technology parks :

Silicon-based Technologies

Compound Semiconductors


Design, Test and Reliability
