Integrated Circuits and Systems

As one of the leading IC design facilities in Europe, we develop customized solutions in the field of “Integrated Circuits and Systems” to meet the constantly evolving requirements of industrial applications. Our work being independent of technology and manufacturer, we are able to provide our customers with optimum solutions. Our focus is on mixed-signal ASIC design for industrial, communications and automotive applications as well as on design solutions for increasingly complex electronic systems. Whether for robust high-speed data transmission for industrial and automotive applications or ultra-low-power solutions for the Internet of Things, we are your partner from the idea to the final product.

Integrated Circuits and Systems - At a glance


Industrial Electronics

Highly automated manufacturing requires faster and more precise signal acquisition. We offer optimum solutions for drive, measurement and control technologies, along with all safety-relevant aspects.


Digital Systems and Data Processing

When developing digital ASICs and SoCs, we combine complex digital functions with highly specialized analog components. This results in extremely effective systems on one or more chips.


Wireline Commmunications

We develop concepts, ASICs and IPs for optical and wireline data transmission at rates of 1 to 25 Gbit/s over distances ranging from a few meters to several hundred meters.



We are developing integrated RF circuits (RFICs) operating in the frequency range up to 30 GHz. Our ultra-low power receiver technology RFicient® enables efficient RF solutions for IoT applications.


Silicon Services

Our Virtual ASIC Foundry offers the entire design flow: design kits of various semiconductor manufacturers for analog, digital and mixed-signal designs as well as the option of ASIC production in very small volumes.


Intellectual Property (IP) Cores and Macros

We offer hard and soft IP cores for analog and digital blocks in a variety of integrated technologies as well as the fast and simple integration of IP blocks into your technology of choice.



Fraunhofer IIS Joins GLOBALFOUNDRIES FDXcelerator™ Program

Fraunhofer IIS will offer dynamic biasing IPs for advanced SoC designs in GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ 22FDX® technology. This new capability offers dynamic adaption of block level performance versus power consumption ratio to customize and optimize SoC and ASIC designs.


Satellite-based exploration of the Earth’s magnetosphere

The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, the Space Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the Full Service Foundry division of ams AG enable highly accurate measurements of the Earth’s magnetosphere from space. For the first time, a new kind of integrated circuit is used.


Fraunhofer IIS and RoodMicrotec Team up for Complete ASIC Solutions

RoodMicrotec and Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS have agreed to expand their existing cooperation. The aim is to offer their customers complete solutions throughout the whole supply chain, from ASIC design to volume production.
