Fraunhofer ENAS is part of the Research Fab Microelectronics Germany (FMD). This research network with 13 members and with more than 2000 scientists is the largest R&D association for micro- and nanoelectronics in Europe. The cross-institutional technology portfolio of Forschungsfabrik Mikroelektronik Deutschland covers the areas of sensor systems, extended CMOS, microwave & terahertz, power electronics, MEMS actuators and optoelectronic systems. Due to its broad R&D portfolio, Fraunhofer ENAS is represented in all six technology platforms as well as in the cross-technology cross-sectional topic Advanced System Design. Furthermore, Fraunhofer ENAS contributes its expertise especially in the implementation of the cross-site Manufacturing Execution System MES.
The Fraunhofer concept of performance centers bundles and networks the competences of institutes and universities within a region. Fraunhofer ENAS works in two performance centers: the performance center "Smart Production and Materials" and the performance center "Functional Integration for Micro-/Nanoelectronics". In the former performance center, Fraunhofer ENAS is also integrated in the training for Smart Production Professional.
