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. Our research revolves around two guiding topics: “Audio and Media” and “Cognitive Sensor” technologies.
We develop customized mixed-signal ICs for sophisticated applications requiring highly integrated sensor solutions, combining several functions on a single chip. Moreover, we provide a standardized software-based wireless connectivity solution for large-scale industrial and commercial IoT applications. Our Digitally Tunable RF Filters enhance the flexibility of wireless communication systems. We also develop Energy Harvesting systems which use energy from the environment to supply small electronic devices.
