Consulting for Product Development: Do you have Technical Problems? With Certification or Obsolescence?

Before, during and after development we can support you with technical knowledge, also for your existing products.

If technical problems, malfunctions or disturbances occur in electronics, production or software, we can solve them quickly and efficiently for you. 

For your certification, we offer support throughout the entire development cycle, from UL and CE to functional safety.

You want to optimize performance and/or the price of the product? We support you with a holistic approach.

Electronic components have been discontinued? We find optimum alternative solutions to keep your product in production for years with little effort.

Debugging & Troubleshooting

Is your market entry delayed due to "electronic" or software problems?

Are you in doubt whether it is the software, the hardware or even an integrated circuit? Do your EMC problems resist all solution attempts?

We have got the equipment and the experience in software and electronics to solve your tricky problems quickly and cost-effectively. We can support you:

  • in the whole EMC area (especially also for non-conducting enclosures)

    • radiated
    • conducted
    • immunity
    • emission

  • for fast buses

    • USB
    • PCIe (PCI Express)
    • Ethernet
    • ...

  • fast memory (DDR RAM...)
  • and software problems (timing, protocol, buffer overflow...). 

We are also pleased to carry out your pre-compliance measurements.

With our interdisciplinary competence in software and electronics we efficiently tackle your problems with software-hardware integration or hardware bring-up of your board support package or operating system. For production problems we can find the solution to get better yield and faster throughput.

Certification

Do you need to certify your product? For CE, EMC, UL, radio, Ex/ ATEX? Or even for functional safety?

We support you with our experience from the identification of the applicable standards to analyses and meaningful technical solutions. We accompany you through the entire development cycle and support you with our knowledge and experience.

We know the standards of many product families from different industries, for example:

  • White goods: EN 60335, EN 60730
  • Lightning: EN 60598
  • Machinery: EN 60204, EN 12100, EN 14121-1, EN 13849, EN 62061
  • Instruments: EN 61010
  • Medical equipment: EN 60601, EN 62304, EN 14971
  • Avionics: DO-160
  • Devices with wireless interfaces: EN 62368
  • EMC: EN 61000-3, EN 61000-4, EN 61000-6, EN 50121, EN 550xx, ETSI EN 300386, ETSI EN 300489
  • Explosion protection: EN 60079

In the field of functional safety, amongst others we work with:

  • Aviation/avionics: DO-178, DO-254, ARP-4754, ARP-4761
  • Automotive: ISO 26262
  • Machinery Directive: ISO 13849
  • Medical technology: IEC 62304
  • General industry: IEC 61508

Together with your specialists, we would be pleased to carry out the corresponding safety analyses (e.g. FTA: Fault Tree Analysis, FMEA: Failure Modes and Effects Analysis, FMEDA: Failure Modes, Effects and Diagnosis Analysis, FMECA: Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis).

Cost Optimization

Is your product too expensive?

Use our knowledge and that of our partners to optimize the manufacturing cost of your product. On the one hand through production optimization, but also through product optimization.

We can bring in an outside view as well as our holistic approach, which considers the whole product and its environment. Thus it is possible to tap great potential for you.

Obsolescence Management

Component discontinued: the end of your product?

Rarely the manufacturers guarantee the availability of electronic components. In order for "end-of-life" of the components not to mean the end of your product, we find replacement components or make small design adjustments. So you can save the cost of a complete re-development. Especially if your product is used in a regulated environment, expensive re-certifications can often be avoided.

Our technology tracking together with our good relationship to manufacturers and distributors results in better assessments of component risks and cost-efficient solutions for product support.
