Embedded Systems

We develop smart solutions for a wide range of electronic applications.

We optimise the systems with regard to their energy consumption ("low power"), size (miniaturisation), real-time behaviour as well as efficient communication with other systems. For this, we need to fine tune hardware and software appropriately. Our systems are used in a wide range of applications, e.g. IoT, control systems, signal conditioning circuits for sensors, radio modules.
