Customized hardware, adapted to your requirements.

Hardware Development

Development of a powerful yet efficient vehicle needs the perfect hardware. Schaeffler Engineering is the right partner for the development of innovative solutions –beginning with just an idea right until a complex control unit.

Hardware concepts and development for the mobility for tomorrow

The electronics development can comprise of analog, digital, and program-controlled circuits along with analog or digital signal processing. The newly emerging systems are realized using modern and most importantly, effective Microcontrollers.

This is how we create the foundation for individual mobility in the future: with hardware solutions for the control systems of various vehicle parts, from the complex engine system to the control of individual vehicle components. Thanks to our years of experience and the high quality standards by which Schaeffler Engineering operates, customers receive state-of-the-art products that meet the highest requirements and work efficiently and reliably. Of course, our hardware specialists are always in close contact with the software developers, to enable even more target-oriented work right from the start.

Customer specific hardware development from one unit up

Customized electronical solutions

We ensure that individual components function perfectly – individually and in the system as a whole. With intelligent electronics that work quickly, securely and reliably.

We also offer comprehensive solutions, from the concept to the product ready for series production, and we support our customers during the final production of the relevant electronics components.

Mass production ready hardware

In electronics development, we have one focus right from the start: the subsequent implementation.

Since, of what use is a smart concept if it can't be implemented in production? Our developers work close to production and combine innovation, the newest technology, and international standards with feasibility.

As a specialist in electronics development with decades of experience, we take on a great variety of assignments.

Best performance on the cutting edge

We work in accordance with the highest technology and quality standards, with an experienced team and the latest tools.
