Research for Your Success


The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is one of Germany's most important industrial applied research facilities for the development of microelectronic systems.

The scientists in the Division Engineering of Adaptive Systems EAS, located in Dresden, develop key technologies for the connected world of tomorrow. Besides the design of reliable microchips and complex electronic systems in leading-edge semiconductor technologies, new concept for sensor systems, the analysis of large amounts of data and the control of automation processes belong to the key acitivites. We focus on applications in the areas mobility and industrial automation in the business areas:

  • Design Methodology
  • Efficient Electronics
  • Distributed Data Processing & Control


The division originated as part of the Central Institute of Cybernetics and Information Processes. In 1992, the research institute became a branch lab and in 2006 a division of IIS. With the exception of base financing amounting to less than 25 percent, the budget is financed primarily via contract research.
