Creative Embedded Solutions for Your Vision of Modern Industry
We create programmable electronic sub-systems and embed them in your application. In this, we adjust the electronics, mechanic and software design to your environmental factors and develop in a perfectly fitted and time-to-market oriented way taking into account your requirements regarding reliability, long-term availability and serviceability in the product lifecycle. Our solutions include highly integrated electronics and high-speed microprocessor assemblies with complex user interfaces and programmable logic. We provide you with suitable firmware and facilitate the connection to your operating system.
Standards & norms
Depending on your wishes, we work according to the high quality standards of our own QM manual or in compliance with your guidelines. We support you during certification of your final product through standardized concepts, development and documentation. In this we follow the required norms (IPC, IEC, et al.), conformities (UL, RoHS, et al.) and utilized standards like, e.g., PCIe, SMARC or COM Express. We also implement testing solutions with the respective documentation for you.
Through our own production company Solectrix Systems we are able to offer you professional production small series production services. Individual testing concepts ensure product quality and take care of documentation needs. Or we support you up to the transfer to your own series production.
From a schematic to a fully realized PCB, we offer all services regarding hardware design. Depending on your wishes we cover design, layout, verification and even small series production of your product idea. Our experience ranges from simple I/O adapter boards to powerful control units for complex modular industrial systems with state-of-the-art processors and microcontrollers. We develop according to the V model or in an agile, customer-oriented way.
Our core competencies include the implementaton of analog and digital interfaces, high-speed data lines, power supplies, and actuators. No matter how complex the design ideas of our customers may be, so far we’ve always managed to realize them; often even with award-winning results. Generally, for each project we ensure the signal and power integrity and the EMC/EMI compatibility., including in cases of high-speed applications that can be challenging in that respect. Depending on the premise of your project and the resulting focus, we optimize our designs depending on your individual use case according to criteria as these:
- High density
- Low power
- Low cost
- Difficult environmental conditions
- Long-term availability
The art of this is the ability to realize the sum of all individual requirements in an ideal balance.
Rapid Prototyping Done Right
During the development process we work closely with the material procurement and production divisions, the testing site, and quality control. Through an ideally coordinated working method we achieve very short throughput times in prototype and pilot production. In the process we keep an eye on your final application from the start. We conceptualize each step of the development process in a systemic way. From the first project day on we choose suitable components based on technical aspects like available space, temperature range or power consumption, long-term availability and cost/benefit aspects. This way, we are able to realize prototypes and A-samples that are so far advanced that their failure rate is under 5 %.
We use software from Mentor Graphics (DxDesigner, PADS, HyperLynx, Xpedition) and Altium Designer as primary development tools with our own library. Beyond that we know our way around further tools like Cadence OrCAD, CadSoft Eagle or Pulsonix and have the respective import and export capabilities. We can adopt designs created with these tools when working within the customer’s system (license and library). We get reliable results with the verification of newly developed hardware features through the use of numerous high-quality measuring instruments, including a high-speed oscilloscope, a spectrum and protocol analyzer, HF antennas, and our own temperature chamber.
