Electronics Development & Tools

Development Process

Far more than 2000 person-years of development experience have led to a proven development process that you can rely on. Functional safety requirements initially drove our development process. Today our customers appreciate clear agreements, high levels of efficiency and consistent quality in all our projects.

We are constantly improving our development process and supplementing it with modern methods, such as agile development and continuous integration. We are committed to introducing and applying state-of-the-art methods. Many of our customers also use joint projects to transfer know-how, and adopt parts of our processes and toolchains.

Development Expertise

Our team of more than 150 embeX experts draws on a broad range of technologies to find the optimal solution for every project they take on.

Standard-compliant Development

As our developers have extensive industry-specific knowledge, they are also very familiar with the applicable standards. The expertise needed to produce compact, reliable electronic modules forms the common basis for our work.

Project Management

Our customers take the quality of their products seriously, as their good name depends on it. We support them in this by providing them with maximum transparency throughout the project.

As part of the quote, our customers already receive a detailed overview of the planned work packages. Clearly defined interfaces for provided items and delivery items ensure that the project runs smoothly and meets all milestones. Of course, regular, concise status reports are also a standard procedure. We would be glad to adapt our reporting to your requests.

Long years of experience have put us in a position to recognise potential risks for projects very early on in the planning phase and then work with the customer to find solutions. We refer to this approach as “front loading”. This protects our customers from nasty surprises and guarantees products that function properly, as well as a timely market launch.
