Welcome to the Leistungszentrum Elektroniksysteme (LZE)

The Leistungszentrum Elektroniksysteme (LZE) is a joint initiative of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Fraunhofer IIS, Fraunhofer IISB, and Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), in addition to other non-university research institutes and various industry partners. The center grew out of many years of intense cooperation between the Fraunhofer institutes in Erlangen and FAU, in addition to the unique concentration of electronic systems research activities and industries based in Nuremberg-Erlangen.

Research excellence and joint planning have created the foundation for a comprehensive, long-term strategic partnership between Fraunhofer, FAU and the electronics industry. The LZE, which launched a pilot phase in January 2015, is being funded by the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs- and Media, Energy and Technology.


The LZE bundles its activities into two major areas of technology: Power electronics for converting and distributing electrical Energy and Low-power electronics for applications with minimal energy requirements.

Four pilot projects were selected to illustrate the extent of the research capabilities of the partners and the Nuremberg-Erlangen business region. The projects will furthermore help develop this expertise on an on-going basis.
