We are experts in the field of software development for microcontrollers, embedded Linux and hardware drivers.
For us, embedded systems engineering means that hardware and firmware come from a single source and are regarded as one unit. With this comprehensive approach, we ensure that the system requirements of the target product are met at all times.

Microcontroller

Entwicklungsprozess




 

Our developments and products form the interface between the measurement signals and the higher software layers. Based on customer requirements, hardware abstractions are created which provide the software with defined interfaces for controlling the hardware.

  • Real-time operating systems
  • Software development in assembler code
  • Bootloader for software updates
  • Preparation of measurement data
  • Filter functions
  • Signal evaluation
  • Digital Signal Processing
  • Development and implementation of customer-specific algorithms, functions and processes

embedded Linux

Entwicklungsprozess




 

The use of Linux as an operating system is a lived practice for us. Linux provides a variety of immediately usable functionalities:

  • FTP server
  • Web interface
  • File system
  • Updateability

Our systems use an adapted angstrom as a basis. This is a distribution especially developed for embedded applications, which is based on the widely used Yocto Project or OpenEmbedded Build System . Many parts are thereby based on the Debian derivatives known from desktop systems.
We always deliver the systems with a customized Linux image. This image serves all existing hardware interfaces and contains the most important libraries, including QT and a toolchain for cross-compiling for the ARM system on a Linux PC

FPGA / CPLD

Entwicklungsprozess




 

FPGA development in the high-level language VHDL is used for the implementation of time-critical processes as well as the parallel processing of large amounts of data.

We integrate FPGA and CPLD components from various manufacturers (Xilinx, Altera, Lattice):

 

  • Core development in FPGA schematic, Abel and VHDL
  • VHDL core development of serial and parallel PC interfaces and DSP functions  (ISA, PCI, PCIe, MiniPCI, PCMCIA and CardBus cores)
  • Lattice (ECP2, ECP3, ECP2M, XP2, MACHXO, MACHXO2, SC)

Our expertise, FPGA programming for:

  • Control of devices in the field of medical technology
  • Control and regulation of stepper and DC motors
  • Image and signal processing
  • Applications of bus systems such as ISA, PCI and PCI-Express (PCIe)
