Cooperation between congatec and SSV

As a result of its recent cooperative development agreement with congatec AG, SSV Embedded Systems is now offering custom development of the XTX module-based baseboards.

Deggendorf / Hanover, 20. April 2006 - As a result of its recent cooperative development agreement with congatec AG, SSV Embedded Systems is now offering custom development of the XTX module-based baseboards. The customer can now benefit from the know-how of two experienced embedded computer professionals from one source and have constant access to current CPU technology in connection with a number of industrial communication interfaces. This hardware combination coupled with extremely high-performance embedded Linux communication pays for itself primarily in the form of significantly lower development times.

 

congatec and SSV Embedded Systems bring together years of experience in the embedded computer field. With SSV as a recognized provider of long-term system solutions in the field of industrial communication with a focus on automation technology, congatec has now a partner with a comprehensive offering and experience in the integration of versatile communication interfaces. In addition to wired and wireless communication, this also encompasses a broad spectrum of field busses. As part of their cooperative engagement, SSV is now offering the custom development of baseboards for the ETX®/XTX modules from congatec. Both firms will engage in close cooperation and in an intensive knowledge exchange in order to best support their customers and achieve their objectives.

 

congatec AG was founded by pioneers of the ETX® standard (Embedded Technology eXtended). After its bold start, congatec was able to establish itself on the COM market (Computer-on-Module) within a very short period of time and with XTX (eXpress Technology for ETX®) was able to introduce to the market an upgradeable extension to the ETX® standard with PCI Express. By integrating SSV's extensive experience, particularly in the field of connecting industrial communication devices, paired with the wide-reaching congatec know-how in developing high-performance ETX®/XTX CPU modules with up to 1.8 GHz dual core processors, the customer profits from significantly shorter development times and the availability of current processor technology. The subsequent close cooperation of both companies also continues in customer contacts - there remains only one competent contact partner for the customer.
