From idea into series production
For over 20 years, we have been developing, supplying and supporting control units for series production. We deliver customized solutions - in terms of quantity, application and project scope.
Control units in series production quality - independent from the number of units
For our customers and us, the perfect interplay of hardware and software is not a question of quantity. We offer control units in series quality, customized for the application and requirements of the customer.
Our comprehensive system know-how and decades of experience as a developer and supplier of control units are the starting point. Each project requires an individual solution while the necessary process and tools stay the same.
We don't have to reinvent the wheel, just put together the best solution.
In combination with components already used in the series production, we have created a modular ECU system which enables us to develop and supply control units quickly as well as application-specific.
Small number of pieces, series production quality
In order to achieve this, we have adapted methods and tools from series development and tailored them to meet the specific needs for varying quantities. Furthermore, as a partner and part of international technology companys we have access to series production components.
Experience means success
For more than ten years, we are developing and supplying control units. Our technical know-how and extensive system understanding of the drive train and the automotive industry are crucial for ensuring the success of a successful development project right from the beginning.
Setting standards for the mobility for tomorrow
Our customers set benchmarks whether it is about power, consumption or sustainability. We provide a crucial part by continuously working on the hardware and software of our customer-specific control units.
Saving of time and costs with modular system principle
As an established development partner and supplier of control units, we have an advantage from the beginning on. Based on our modular ECU system and available series components, such as connectors and housings, we develop customer-specific control units.
We know all about it
As an established engineering partner of the Automotive industry we know about the high demands on products and engineering services. We have the required knowledge regarding OEM specific standards and requirements, so that our customized solutions set standards.
Safety critical applications
The complex interaction of mechatronic components offers numerous possibilities for innovation. At the same time, one has to pay close attention to safety. As an established engineering partner and supplier of control units, we offer the design acc. ISO 26262 up to ASIL D.
