Fraunhofer IAF is one of the few research institutions worldwide which have mastered the entire supply chain in the area of III-V semiconductors and synthetic diamond at the highest international level. We develop electronic and optoelectronic devices, with years of experience, highly qualified staff and state of the art equipment. A clean room with cutting edge semiconductor process technology as well as excellent measurement technology is at our disposal.
Fraunhofer IAF’s research and development covers the entire value chain – from materials research through design, technology and circuits to modules and systems. Our technologies find applications in areas such as security, energy, communication, health, mobility, quantum sensors and quantum computing.
Our research results are usually transferred to industrial companies for serial production. If, by reason of small quantities, no commercial partner can be found, we are also able to supply our partners reliably with small series in high quality.
Fraunhofer IAF makes an important contribution to the supply of the national and European industry with components based on innovative semiconductor technologies.
