Electronic Services from a Single Source - The Right Mix Makes the Difference

Custom specific device electronics for a microscope

Jena, Germany, 12 November 2007—MAZeT GmbH will be presenting itself at MEDICA 2007, the World Forum for Medicine, in Düsseldorf as a full-service system provider that develops and manufactures embedded systems and components for medical devices. The company will be showcasing its core competencies in the area of embedded computing applications from 14 to 17 November 2007 at Booth G54 (common booth for the Federal State of Thuringia) in Hall 16. “The medical technology sector is experiencing a huge demand for end-to-end custom hardware solutions with FPGA components and embedded operating systems,” explains Dr. Fred Grunert, Managing Director of MAZeT. “Our portfolio of reference projects in medical technology clearly stands out: Over the past few months MAZeT has developed electronic devices and systems for renowned medical technology manufacturers and has assumed all tasks and full responsibility for the entire process chain from system design to production delivery.” By emphasizing comprehensive and complete customer care and support, MAZeT is able to provide ‘worry-free service’ for all its customer projects. This allows its customers to focus on their own core competencies.

From an idea and a prototype to production delivery –
High quality from a single source

MAZeT support its customers from the very beginning, including the early brainstorming stages, and then relies on its vast experience to come up with an optimal solution in terms of function and cost. Once the functional range of an application has been determined, feasible approaches for implementing specific technical properties and the expected serial production costs are discussed in the first project stage. The benefits and costs of various methods of implementation (e.g., programmable logic devices, microprocessors or software) are analyzed, and the best method is chosen in consultation with the customer. The main advantage of MAZeT lies in the company’s broad range of competencies in electronics technologies, such as its expertise with numerous processor platforms for embedded systems or FPGAs. As a result, MAZeT engineers are able to devise customized embedded hardware and software solutions and the associated projected costs in no time at all. MAZeT also manufactures its own prototypes, which means it can quickly supply functional models of products for initial user tests. Moreover, a complete in-house development chain ensures that the company can adapt to changing market conditions in a timely manner.

The company’s expertise in software development ranges from hardware-related programming and configuring operating systems to building complex testing environments and application software. Also, as the project is planned in close cooperation with the client, the question of who is responsible for which tasks is settled at an early stage—always making sure that the core application know-how remains with the client.
