IHP – Innovations for High Performance MicroelectronicsThe IHP has a team of 240 R&D professionals with core competence in micro‐electronics process technology, circuit design, and systems. As a public research institute and member of the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Society, the core funding comes from the German Federal Government and the State Government of Brandenburg. The institute aims at establishing the region of East‐Brandenburg as a high‐tech region and to create jobs through innovation. Therefore IHP uses its R&D to enhance the competitiveness of German and European businesses and works closely with the Federal and State Governments to attract international companies to the region.

Tasks in the project:

  • Coordination
  • Design of 120 GHz RF frontend
  • digital baseband design
  • SoC integration
  • fabrication of SiGe BiCMOS ICs

The institute is focussed on developing innovative solutions for wired and wireless communications and microelectronics. Its expertise ranges from system design, digital and RFIC design to the development of 130nm to 250 nm SiGe BiCMOS and RFCMOS technologies. IHP has long years of experience in wireless systems research especially in RF circuit design, baseband processor design and MAC‐processor design, RF device design down to transistor‐level and semiconductor processing technology. The idea of a vertically‐integrated research approach embracing communications system and RF semiconductor technology research stimulates the work on forward‐looking, interdisciplinary, and application‐oriented research. The IHP is or has been a partner in EU projects: PULSERS I and II, GALAXY, MIMAX, OMEGA, BOOM, HELIOS and others. It is acting as a coordinator in the GALAXY project.
