Research of the IHP
IHP researches and develops silicon-based systems, high-frequency circuits and technologies including new materials. It realizes prototypical solutions for applications such as wireless and broadband communication, security, medical technology, aerospace, mobility, and industrial automation. As a Leibniz Institute, IHP is working on long-term, strategic research assignments. It combines basic research with applied research. Through its pilot line with its own, very powerful SiGe:C BiCMOS technologies, it is able to demonstrate complex solutions with innovative and industrially relevant prototypes. Developed technologies are rapidly brought to a level at which they can be offered as research-based services.
Synergies are achieved through the coordinated collaboration of the Materials Research, Technology, Circuit Design, System Architecture and Wireless Systems departments with their core competencies, resulting in vertically optimized solutions. The core competencies enable IHP to make significant contributions to current and future societal challenges such as health, security, mobility, sustainability, 5G and related technologies, and industry and agriculture.
Through its fields of activity: Resilient Systems, Sensing Systems, Radio Frequency & Broadband Communication Systems, Advanced Semiconductor Technologies and Device and Material Innovations, IHP is of key strategic and research policy importance to achieve technological independence and sovereignty for Europe. The institute develops technologies for science and industry, through the application of which they can achieve unique selling propositions and survive in global competition.
