Deve­lo­p­ment

The deve­lo­p­ment of elec­tro­tech­ni­cal cir­cuits and ter­mi­nals has been one of the key com­pe­ten­ci­es of SCHU­MA­CHER Elek­tro­me­cha­nik GmbH sin­ce the com­pa­ny was foun­ded: from simp­le ana­lo­gue regu­la­ti­on and con­trols to com­plex and digi­tal cir­cuits for medi­cal electronics.

Cus­to­mer-spe­ci­fic solutions

Regard­less of whe­ther stan­dard app­li­ca­ti­ons or very spe­ci­fic indi­vi­du­al cus­to­mer requi­re­ments: With our deca­des of expe­ri­ence in the are­as of elec­tro­me­cha­ni­cal pro­duc­tion and elec­tro­tech­ni­cal hard­ware and soft­ware deve­lo­p­ment, we are able to work clo­se­ly with our cus­to­mers to sol­ve a wide varie­ty of requi­re­ments, even of the hig­hest com­ple­xi­ty and imple­ment them in cus­to­mer-spe­ci­fic pro­jects and productions.

Deve­lo­p­ment from a sin­gle source

With a team of hard­ware and soft­ware spe­cia­lists as well as in-house mecha­ni­cal deve­lo­pers, we design an inno­va­ti­ve and always trans­pa­rent deve­lo­p­ment pro­cess. From advice, cir­cuit design and lay­out crea­ti­on over laun­ching and tes­ting, all the way up to the TÜV inspection.

Along the way, we use sui­ta­ble lay­out pro­gram­mes (Alti­um Pro­tel) and sta­te-of-the-art mea­su­re­ment methods. We also refi­ne exis­ting sys­tems or deve­lop new repla­ce­ment systems.

Elec­tro­nics

Our spe­cial field is the deve­lo­p­ment of power sup­plies and con­trols for sources of light of any kind. In par­ti­cu­lar lasers in a midd­le vol­ta­ge ran­ge (from around 1 to 20 kilo­volts) can be ope­ra­ted and ful­ly con­trol­led by our ter­mi­nals We are not only pro­du­cers of com­ple­te ter­mi­nals and indi­vi­du­al parts such as pla­tes and cables, but also spe­cia­lists for the deve­lo­p­ment of the sui­ta­ble elec­tro­nic com­pon­ents. Par­ti­cu­lar atten­ti­on is paid to a pro­duc­tion-ori­en­ted design, which can then be incor­po­ra­ted into our in-house production.

Next to power sup­plies and con­trols, we also cover the deve­lo­p­ment of the ent­i­re ran­ge of con­trol tech­no­lo­gy. Our in-house deve­lo­ped boards allow the ter­mi­nals to be ope­ra­ted in com­pli­an­ce with the hig­hest secu­ri­ty standards.

Mecha­nics

 

When deve­lo­ping elec­tro­me­cha­ni­cal com­pon­ents, we use key infor­ma­ti­on from our cus­to­mers to deve­lop a design that is both tech­ni­cal­ly and eco­no­mi­c­al­ly sus­tainab­le. With the use of the 3D con­struc­tion soft­ware (Solid­Works) we can alrea­dy show in the deve­lo­p­ment pha­se what the finis­hed ter­mi­nal will look like, how it will fit into the over­all design of the sys­tem and how it will meet the cost requi­re­ments of the customer.

Soft­ware

Software’s role in electri­cal engi­nee­ring is beco­m­ing incre­a­singly important. Tog­e­ther with our cus­to­mers, we deve­lop a hard­ware-rela­ted solu­ti­on and can also rea­li­se com­plex soft­ware requi­re­ments. This is how we deli­ver the most modern soft­ware solu­ti­ons for a wide varie­ty of cus­to­mer requirements.

One focus is her­eby on GUI (Gra­phi­cal User Inter­face), based on QML, for examp­le to deve­lop touch­screen con­trols in cus­to­mer-spe­ci­fic designs. In addi­ti­on to that, “Yoc­to Linux” makes it pos­si­ble for appro­pria­te­ly cus­to­mi­zed sys­tem soft­ware to be used on our ter­mi­nals, pre­pa­ring for “embed­ded sys­tems”. Our soft­ware deve­lo­pers are also working with Micro­chip con­trol­lers and CAN bus sys­tems, which can be used to con­trol various sub­sys­tems with a sin­gle line and save some of the wiring steps.

Thanks to modern ver­si­on manage­ment, all deve­lo­p­ment steps are trans­pa­rent even with bran­ched sys­tems. In addi­ti­on, we crea­te the inter­faces gene­ral­ly requi­red today in terms of soft­ware, main­ly WLAN, Blue­tooth, NFC, LoRa, Android
