Why does quality for us make a difference in the small matters as well?
Because we also place great demands on our low-volume production ECUs!

Control units - Customer solutions in series production quality

One does not need large quantities to achieve something great: Schaeffler Engineering develops powerful and high-quality automotive control units starting from one unit on.

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.

Quality

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

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.

Technology

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.

Availability

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.

Know-how

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

Safety first

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.
