The Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS is the expert and development partner in the field of Smart Systems and their integration for various applications. We offer innovative solutions and support customer projects along the whole value chain of smart systems.

Fraunhofer ENAS is a reliable innovation partner for start-ups, SMEs or large enterprises and offers R&D services from the idea to the design, technology development or realization based on existing technologies to the tested prototype and technology transfer. In addition to technology development as well as smart sensor systems, the institute increasingly focuses on the setup of application demonstrators as part of an upstream product development.

We develop high-precision sensors, new sensor and actuator systems based on integrated nanostructures and standard technologies, beyond-CMOS devices, innovative integration technologies, advanced reliability concepts and complement them with innovative developments in the fields of simulation, data analysis by means of artificial intelligence and system security. By using requirement engineering, we adapt the systems for different applications and embed them into higher-level complex systems.

In order to focus its activities and to ensure a long-term scientific and economic success, Fraunhofer ENAS puts special emphasis on the three business units, which are arranged along the whole value chain of smart systems:

  • Process, Device and Packaging Technologies
  • Intelligent Sensor and Actuator Systems
  • Systems and Applications
