Medical Technology

IHP's strength for medical applications is based on its merged competencies in materials, semiconductor technology, RF circuit design and wireless systems. It is completed by partnerships in medical research & industry. Key hard- & software components are available and can be used as basic blocks for new applications. Examples of IHP's portfolio are wireless sensor nodes with low-power consumption or security capabilities, Gigabit Wireless LAN, RF sensors as well as MEMS technologies. Typical applications of IHP's technical solutions are in the field of integrated sensors, telemedicine and habitat monitoring.

Cooperation with Brandenburg Medical School Theodor Fontane (MHB)

Microelectronics is a key technology and the basis of numerous innovations in the field of medical technology. The first implantable microelectronic systems in the form of cardiac pacemakers and cochlear implants were developed as early as 1950. Both implants use microelectronics to dramatically improve patient quality of life. Based on these medical technology applications of microelectronics new trends can be derived due to the progressive complexity of semiconductor technology:


  • Applications of implantable microsystems that interact sensory or through neural coupling
  • Point-of-care-testing
  • Cell or molecular diagnostics


"I am convinced that the cooperation between IHP and MHB will enable the development of new therapy and early detection measures. In the long term, it may be possible to significantly improve the quality of life of our aging society.", says Prof. Christian Wenger.

IHP is a member of the Leibniz Research Alliance "Heath Technologies"

Fourteen member institutes of Leibniz Health Technologies have been working on concrete technology solutions for pressing medical issues. Together they follow the goal of improving medical care for patients. Through the cross-disciplinary approach, prevention, diagnostics, and treatment converge to increase the quality of life.


The Leibniz research alliance unites competencies from very different scientific fields: from photonics and medicine to microelectronics and materials research to economic research and applied mathematics. This results in health technologies that together with industry, hospitals, insurance, and politics are led to marketability along a complete innovation chain. Simultaneously, Leibniz Health Technologies conducts research on the social and economic impact of new medical technologies to optimize their applicability for users and create wide social acceptance of new technologies.
