The Fraunhofer Institute
for Integrated Circuits is one of Europe´s leading technology and
vendor independent design facilities. The portfolio of technologies comprising
GaAs, BiCMOS and CMOS allows us to cover RF designs, mixed signal designs
and high complex digital designs for a broad range of applications. The
design expertise is complemented by in-depth system know-how in the area
of multimedia, digital communication, image processing and sensor systems.
Special emphasis lies on the development of analog-to-digital converter
macrocells and reusable core components (RAM, ROM,
microcontroller cores) as part of systems-on-silicon.
Also verification services for complex systems are available. Integrating magnetic and optical sensors in standard technologies allows cost effective ASIC solutions for microsystem applications. Conditions and design methodology for the total flow from specification to component delivery can be tailored to the needs of low volume applications.
