The headquarters of the Fraunhofer IISB is located in Erlangen, right next to the southern section of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.
The IISB is provided with about 5000 m2 of research and development facilities for micro- and nanotechnology, power electronics, and crystal growth.
In addition, about 1500 m2 high-class cleanroom area are available, which are partly operated together with the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.
With an area of additional 1600 m2, an extension building, which will be used mainly for power electronics, was opened in 2012.
In summer 2010, the new IISB Test Center for Electric Vehicles was inaugurated.
