IHP, a member of the Leibniz association, is doing research and development in the area of microelectronics and information technology. As a European research and innovation centre for wireless communication technologies, it is our aim to strengthen the competitiveness of the German and European microelectronic industry.

IHP has a closed innovation chain with core competences in materials research, semiconductor technology, circuit design and system development. It is used for the development of vertically optimized solutions from materials up to prototypes. Of central importance is the IHP pilot line equipped for 0.25 µm and 0.13 µm SiGe BiCMOS technologies. With its long-term experience in silicon microelectronics IHP cooperates in many national and international projects with Universities, research institutions and with industry.

The System Design department conducts research and development for high-end wireless solutions. The main research topics are: Sensor networks and nodes, Wireless Internet application and optimized protocol processors for network and cryptographic operations.
