Semiconductors & Sensors

Using 3D integration of components, complex, heterogeneous system-in-packages (SiP solutions) can be developed.

 

Business Units

Automotive/Transportation

Since Fraunhofer IZM’s establishment, every department has included the application areas automotive and transportation technologies as core competences. The institute has worked with OEMs, tier 1s and, in particular, their suppliers to “electronify” the automobile at all levels.
