Typical sectors are …

emBRICK for
Industrial Automation

general purpose and sectoral I/Os f or direct sensor/actor adaption. Reduces space, time and costs to 50% and less.

emBRICK for
Building Automation

For small local or centralized installations. Extrem fast, high space and cost reduction. Non-proprietary solution.

emBRICK for
Testing and Measurig

Fast assembling by using over 40 (growing) extsting modules. No configuration. Scaleable speed and acuracy/resolutuion. Drivers for several software platforms.

emBRICK for
Rapid Prototyping

You develop a new embedded project and the hardware is not ready? Start tesing your software with the real equipment by using a PC connected with existing I/O-modules.

emBRICK for
Education and Makers

Realize your ideas with a minimum of hard and software knowlege and learn how they work. Use emBRICK-modules and its software stacks for common maker platforms … or create your own modules based on free templates.

Ready to run with …



For a fast start into the world of free and modular hardware we support several starter kits, that works together with well known/established professional and maker platforms.

  • Raspberry Pi (C, C++, Codesys, logi.cals)
  • Beaglebone (c, c++, Gamma)
  • Coupler (Ethernet) via: MSVC (C/C++), Codesys, …
  • Arduino (Coming Soon)

…a and more under development.

Better Together

We beleive that the development of hardware and software is much easier than often done.
Beside the modular hardware “emBRICK” we also developed and support the model-based CASE-tool “radCASE”.
It supports a model driven development with realistic simulation and series-code generation for embedded systems – even with small footprints.

Of course radCASE supports emBRICK in a perfect way – on all embedded platform and also PC-based prototyping environments.
