Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF
The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF is one of few research institutions around the world with expert knowledge of the entire value chain in the field of III/V compound semiconductor materials at the very highest international level. This encompasses a profound understanding of the fundamental physical properties of the materials, the ability to design innovative construction elements and circuits and carry out subsequent processing, the construction of modules and systems, and finally the complete measuring technology for characterizing and optimizing components up to frequencies of over 600 GHz. Modules designed in this way are used to realize complex systems for radar applications and wireless communication which are in use around the world. The Fraunhofer IAF brings its competence in millimeter-wave circuits and mounting technology, metamorphic HEMT technology and system design to the project, which will be invaluable for manufacturing H band radar components and the resultant systems.
