Fraunhofer ENAS - Your System and Technology Partner in the Field of Smart Systems Integration by using Micro and Nano Technologies

The particular strength of the Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS lies in the development of smart integrated systems for different applications. Fraunhofer ENAS develops single components, technologies for their manufacturing as well as system concepts and system integration technologies and transfers them into production. The institute offers research and development services from the idea, via design and technology development or realization based on established technologies up to tested prototypes.



New Director of the Institute

Today, September 1st 2020, Prof. Dr. Harald Kuhn became the director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS. Moreover he is the Chair for Smart Systems Integration at the Chemnitz University of Technology.

Smart Systems Integration - Next Conference in 2021

The next SSI Conference will will take place in 2021 in Grenoble. Please submit your abstract via the new conference webpage.

Nano Device Technologies

Today, April 1, 2020, the department Back-End of Line has been renamed to department Nano Device Technologies.

The department was founded in 2008 with the focus on metallization and interconnect systems for microelectronics. During the last twelve years, new competencies have been developed within the department, including the topics of memristors, CNT-based components and magnetic field sensor technology based on spintronics, which also expanded the research topics in simulation. The renaming of the department is a consequence of the current profile.


Whitepaper on Memristor Technologies

Memristor technologies are designed to address the fabrication of new electronic devices and architectures for computers of tomorrow.


Certificate DIN EN ISO 9001:2015

The Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 by DEKRA Certification GmbH since December 2019.


Fraunhofer Lighthouse Project »Go Beyond 4.0«

Six Fraunhofer Institutes have demonstrated the individualization of single products in mass production environments by the employment of digital printing and laser technologies. This substantial progress provides completely new opportunities for design and weight reduction by material savings.

The Lighthouse Project introduces its current research and development results with a new project video.

Fraunhofer Solution Days 2020

The Fraunhofer lighthouse project »Go Beyond 4.0« will present online technologies and application examples for individualization in mass production at the Fraunhofer Solution Days on October 26, 2020. In a live presentation and at our virtual trade fair stand, you will learn how individual mass products are manufactured using digital production technologies and can talk directly to our experts via video and text chats.




The conference has been postponed to November 15-19, 2020.

Researchers from Fraunhofer ENAS and Chemnitz University of Technology will actively take part at 29th MAM conference  in Autrans (Grenoble), France. The conference addresses new challenges in the fields of materials for memories, power electronics, M&NEMS, nanoscale devices…
