Is Your Manufacturing Cost-Efficient?

Cost-efficient because you selected the optimum partner for assembly (EMS: Electronic Manufacturing Service), but also cost-efficient because you did an efficient production ramp-up. The later we gladly assume for you, for production we work with partners. Thereby you do not tie yourself to a manufacturer, but you have the choice and the cost advantages that go with it.

If you would like to obtain development and production as a one-stop service, we can act as general contractor for you. Compared to a solution with "own" production, this has the advantage that we can select the optimum production partner for your product.

Validation Support

Does the Product Work at the Customer also?

Or the control system together with the machine?
Why is this question so important? We develop systems according to your requirements and maybe change wishes.However, the ultimate test is "real life".

With our planning and support during integration test into your system, during field tests at the customer and with other validation tasks up to zero-series or even series production problems are identified fast and systematically and efficiently reported back. This means less error cost intneh series production and a higher customer satisfaction.

Production Ramp-Up

Does Production Ramp-Up have to be so Cumbersome?

We do not think so! Thanks to the consideration of industrialization already at the start of development, with us there is no redesign for the series and also no separate NPI (New Product Introduction) process. Typically already the second prototype can go into pilot production/ zero-series without modifications.

Thus production ramp-up consists mainly in the definition of the production tests and the construction of the production tester plus the support for the zero series. This means for you that there is no effort with production, except of course for the ordering.

Production

Who shall manufacture your electronics?

Would you like to work together with a print assembler (EMS: Electronic Manufacturing Service)? Do you have your own electronics production? Or shall we organize your manufacturing? For an optimized production and sourcing process we can offer you all models. From our development you own all production data by yourself, so there is no inseparable commitment to a particular manufacturer.

If you would like not only to outsource the assembly of your printed circuit boards, but also mechanical assembly work or even complete packaging and shipment, we can organize this for you also.

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 the integrated circuit? Do your EMC problems resist all standard remedies?

We have got the equipment and the experience in software and electronics to find fast and economical solutions for your tricky problems. The support we provide compromises the whole EMC range (radiated, conducted, immunity, emission, especially also for non-conducting enclosures), fast buses (USB, PCIe (PCI Express), Ethernet...), fast memory (DDR RAM...) and software problems (timing, protocol, buffer overflow...).

As our competencies encompass electronics and software, we efficiently tackle the problems with software/ hardware integration or hardware bring-up of your board support package or operating system. Also for production problems we can find the solution to get better yield and lower cycle time.

Industrialization

Shall one Begin something Early, so it has Not do be Done At All?

We think yes. In order not to insert a special industrialization phase between prototypes and series production start, we carry out Design for Cost, Design for Test, Design for Manufacturing etc. from the beginning. So the development time is shortened and the effort is smaller, you are on the market faster and more economically.

The following measures help us amongst others to reach this goal: The first prototype is developed already in a way that it could be the series product. So in many cases only one correction, one further prototype, is needed until series production, in maximum two corrections are required.

In addition we try to let produce all prototypes on the series production line, so process problems are discovered early.

Functional Safety & Security

Must Functional Safety and Security be Complicated?

Certainly only as complicated as necessary. In order not to have to invent the wheel each time anew, we have strict, established processes which deliver the safety-relevant results. Thereby we can economically execute projects with functional safety for industry (IEC61508), machinery (IEC 62061 & ISO 13849), automotive (ISO 26262), aviation (DO-178 (ED-12)/ DO-254 (ED-80)) and  other areas (explosion protection (ATEX), medical, railways...).

Because not only persons, but also data have to be secured, we are in aposition to develop and verify your products with respect to security.

Additionally our established processes strongly decrease the risk that the certification phase will consume unplanned effort and time.

Project Management

Would You Like to have No Effort with Project Management?

We do the complete project management for you, so that you do not have to assign your staff for it. Project management also includes the management of the risks, so you do not experience surprises. We take care for an efficient development, by e.g. filing and documenting your data in a structured manner, also making maintenance more simple and economic.

After system design, our processes allow us to estimate your project accurately, so that milestones and effort can be defined clearly. Throughout the whole project, we offer you transparency and clarity about status, deadlines and effort.
