Advanced Semiconductor Technologies

IHP has a broad portfolio of development opportunities for novel technology innovations.

The basis is the 200 mm process platform in the institute's own pilot line. The focus of the development is on process, device and module developments for Si-CMOS compatible technologies. The IHP has the following competencies in the field of advanced semiconductor technologies:


  • Process Development

    Process Development

    Process and device developments for novel "More-than-Moore" technologies are based on an 8” Si technology platform.

Innovations are mainly driven forward by the research program Technologies for Smart Systems, in close cooperation with the research program Materials for Micro- and Nanoelectronics. They thus form an important cornerstone for IHP's strategic priorities Technologies for Health & Environment, Wireless & Broadband Communication and Technologies for Resilient Systems. High-performance SiGe-BiCMOS technology and novel EPIC (Electronic-Photonic-integrated circuit) platforms are at the center of the developments and will be successively supplemented by new modules and components for extended functionality. The developed technologies and modules will then be made available to partners worldwide for research and prototype production within the IHP research service.
