We have been developing and manufacturing embedded components for reliable electronic series products in Germany since 1985.

Processor modules such as system on modules and single board computers as well as OEM products based on themProducts are our core business. Customer-specific embedded systems including software, housing design and assembly expand our product range. With our specialized know-how in embedded vision, IIoT solutions, cloud Services, embedded security and artificial intelligence, we are ideally positioned to provide you with professional support in the development of your product ideas.

Ours have proven themselves for many decades Products under the most demanding conditions, including in medical technology, traffic and transportation, the energy industry, avionics, building automation, drive technology, agricultural technology or the automotive industry.

Our Products and Services shorten your time-to-market and reduce both your development costs and your risks in the development and production of industrial embedded systems.

The family company employs over 400 people in 5 branches worldwide (as of 2023).



Ten good reasons
for a module from PHYTEC

Solid development know-how has developed over several decades since the company was founded in 1985. With typical clock rates in the gigahertz range, processor design also means high-frequency design with all its consequences.

Thanks to our close partnerships with internationally renowned processor manufacturers, we have very early and privileged access to all relevant information, including the latest processors. That is why we can present the associated modules shortly after the appearance of a new generation of processors.

Our Products are already prepared for most standard requirements and offer the appropriate software and hardware support to accelerate development. In addition, our FAE team and Custom Service will support you in developing your individual solution.

Development, testing and production are major items in the overall bill for a new series product. These costs can be reduced by purchasing the processor module. The series remains more economical, especially for small batch sizes. Thanks to DSC technology, many PHYTECProducts be offered more cost-effectively.

Our test systems for large quantities are particularly reliable and have proven themselves on a broad basis thanks to the wide range of applications. The use of our finished, tested modules thus reduces the overall risk.

These include security by design, image processing, industrial IoT, tests and approvals, specialized manufacturing, for example in the field of artificial intelligence and other topics. We are happy to support your project with these skills. In doing so, we always remain in our role as a qualified module manufacturer, take over parts in the hardware development if necessary and thus give you the opportunity to bring suitable industry solutions to the market quickly.

We offer know-how in many industry-specific accompanying topics. For example, the hardware can be equipped in such a way that it fulfills vibration and shock tests according to railway standards, corresponds to individual security requirements by design or is prepared for your individual software. We would be happy to support you as a partner in bringing the right industry solutions to market quickly.

Continuous software maintenance with current patches increases security. We keep the BSPs and the environment regularly up to date and make them available to you for a roll-out. At the beginning of development, the up-to-date version of the operating system is always used.

This means that fast developments, production with testing, application development and software maintenance are taken into account from the start. The software is based on the Yocto Project. The integrated and fully tested RAUC is available for maintenance and update purposes. The supplied BSP has an update strategy with roadmap planning, update integration, verification, test and roll-out.

In addition to the procurement of components and the quality-assured production of embedded components from modules to IoT gateways in Germany, we are also specialists in the area of ​​customer-specific embedded systems with adaptations for specific hardware, software and housing designs. We can even take care of assembling the individual device parts until the finished product is delivered. With our extensive development know-how in embedded vision, IoT solutions, cloud Services, embedded security and artificial intelligence, we are ideally positioned to provide you with professional support in the development of your product idea through to market launch.
