Let us develop your product! From the moment your idea is born all the way to production!

For applications in rail vehicles, infrastructure and signalling in harsh environmental conditions, we develop highly available and highly reliable products and system solutions.

For the conversion to ETCS, we offer the complete range of development services. Our process reliability enables us to master even complex and demanding development projects.

Engineering Services

Take advantage of our many years of experience in the development of functionally safe systems up to SIL 4, which also meets the requirements for reliability, availability, maintainability, safety (RAMS) in accordance with EN 50126. Safety can also be safeguarded with regard to cybersecurity up to SL 4 (Safety & Security).

  •  The engineering services are carried out according to our standard-compliant or customer-specific design and coding guidelines.
    • Software according to EN 50128
    • Hardware according to EN 50129
    • Complex and high-performance FPGA implementations
    • Mechanical designs also for harsh environmental conditions
  • We network your systems with communication standards such as
    • Eulynx
    • Rail Safe Transport Application (RaSTA)
    • Railway Signal Safety Protocol (RSSP-1)
    • Train Communication Network (TCN)
  • We create the system concept according to the required safety level. 
  • For functional safety we offer comprehensive consulting and development services:
    • MTBF, FMEA, FMECA, fault tree analysis/FTA, HazOp
  • Cybersecurity is implemented according to CLC/TS 50701 and the IEC 62443 referenced therein. We also protect functional safety through cybersecurity.   
  • Verification and validation are carried out reliably and automated to the greatest possible extent in a specialised department and our in-house test laboratories, which also ensure reliability via HALT tests.
  • We support our customers in qualification and certification processes with testing authorities.
  • The complete preparation and handover of the development documents is a matter of course for us.
  • In 2022, embeX was awarded by the German Industry association BAHNVERBAND e.V. as “Supplier for the railway industry with special recommendation”.

Series and Product Life Cycle

  • Once development is complete, we responsibly outsource your production - or that of an EMS - and accompany your product through its entire life cycle with the support of the Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT).
  • We are happy to take over the maintenance of your successful branded products and thus relieve your team.
  • Through re-engineering, we also ensure the availability of your products in the event of obsolescence.

Developed Products

We support you in the definition of the development process and the implementation of your projects. We supported our customers in the following projects like TCN Gateway, Rail Switch Evaluation Electronics, Radio Control Unit, Safe Control, Red Alert System, Light Signal Assembly, Energy Storage Systems, Safe Drives with Power Electronics.
