Fraunhofer Center for Applied Microstructure Diagnostics CAM
Based on twenty years of experience in microstructure diagnostics and material assessment for semiconductor technologies, microelectronic components, microsystems and nano-structured materials, Fraunhofer CAM is tying the entire flow from non-destructive defect localization to high precision target preparation right up to cutting edge nanoanalytics supplemented by micro-mechanical testing, finite element modeling and numerical simulation.
In addition to cooperation within public-funded research projects and scientific networks, Fraunhofer CAM is a major contractor to the microelectronics and nanotechnology industry focusing on physical failure analysis and material characterization. Using a certified DIN ISO 9001:2000 quality management system, we are providing services for leading international as well as for small and medium enterprises, many of them active in the very demanding automotive electronics market.
Our research results are aimed at supporting our cooperation partners introducing innovative materials and new technologies, improving manufacturing process steps, securing reliable field use of components, and consequently optimizing manufacturing yield, product quality, reliability, and cost efficiency.
Our major strength is the transfer of know-how from and close working collaboration with our colleague in fields like photo-voltaics, material research both in dental and personal care in the area of medical technology.
Fraunhofer CAM is a unit of Fraunhofer IWM.
