Design and manufacturing of automotive electronics

Since 2004, we have been designing and manufacturing custom automotive electronics: embedded systems for cars and trucks, sea and river vessels.

Our portfolio includes successful projects for American and European automotive concerns: in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), OBD trackers, engine control units, navigation systems and other electronics.

Devices and embedded systems

We help our customers create products for local and global markets: "connected" cars, ICE systems (In-Car Entertainment), integrated solutions for specialized vehicles based on the IoT technologies (Internet of Things).
 
Our embedded automotive solutions meet the stringent requirements of the industry. We design hardware platforms for uninterrupted operation under harsh conditions and write program code for fault-tolerant embedded systems.

We are grateful to Promwad for fruitful cooperation during the embedded software development for the body control unit, which was designed according to the international ISO TS-16949 standard.

Our partnership with chip vendors

AUTOSAR (Automotive Open System Architecture)

 

AUTOSAR (Automotive Open System Architecture) is an international partnership in the development of an open and standardized software architecture for automotive electronic control units (ECUs).

The goal of this partnership is to ensure the availability, security, scalability, and portability of software platforms for vehicles; guarantee maintainability throughout the life cycle of the product.

MISRA (Motor Industry Software Reliability Association)

 

MISRA (Motor Industry Software Reliability Association) is an association of vehicle manufacturers, component suppliers, and engineering companies, established to provide software reliability in the automotive industry.

One of the standards – MISRA C – was designed to promote the security, portability and reliability of programs for embedded systems in the C language.
