Voices from industry and academia

Sebastian Bischoff, Bischoff-Elektronik

”At Bischoff Elektronik we have worked jointly with IMMS on the Smart Home Services (SHS) Facility project to develop an energy-efficient hardware and software platform for building automation applications. This embedded system is universally applicable and is suitable both to the control of KNX components and to metering tasks, permitting wireless retrieval of data from wM-Bus, ZigBee or EnOcean devices.

IMMS supported us in our development of PCBs and of the system by contributing its comprehensive know-how with respect to the latest micro-controllers, energy efficiency issues and EMC design practice. The Institute also realized the software for the new hardware platform and was responsible for porting the operating system onto it.

The expertise in integrated hardware and software development which it brought to bear was vital to the success of the project. The Institute’s researchers never lost focus, remained flexible in responding to our desired alterations and were always concerned to achieve smooth cooperation. We shall be delighted if further joint projects are possible in the future and can predict yet more of the successful cooperation.“
