Embedded in Building Automation

Embedded in your success!

Embedded computer technologies are used widely in building automation, with applications ranging from classic automation and control of complex installations in large premises and factories, to access control and video surveillance systems, to local devices and panel systems for the control of high-quality home automation systems.Key characteristics in all cases are high energy efficiency and a small footprint, coupled with a good price.

New challenges in Building Automation
 

Smart homes, smart buildings, smart cities and smart grids place new demands on embedded computer technologies for building automation. Seamless gateway connectivity and secure end-to-end communication are required.

Ready for the future with congatec!
 

Reliable and long-term available embedded boards and modules from congatec are the first choice for all current and future embedded computing projects in building automation. For applications with special requirements that cannot be met with standard, off-the-shelf computer technology, congatec also offers many options to modify the hardware and firmware. Everything is possible, from BIOS/UEFI adaptation and individual board assembly to complete platform development.

The performance spectrum ranges from energy-efficient ultra-low power ARM processor technology with passive cooling for IoT-connected intelligent heating controls in the smart home, to high-end x86 multicore systems for vision control with big data analytics and deep learning features for object recognition or authentication in applications with the highest security requirements. For all these tasks, congatec works closely together with customers to develop the solution that’s best for them.

High security inclusive
 

By providing numerous BIOS/UEFI security options and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) support, congatec enables customers to implement a high level of security that is optimized for their specific solution requirements.

Perfectly matching real-time hypervisor support
 

Hypervisor support from Real-Time Systems makes the embedded computer technologies from congatec even more attractive. It allows multiple operating systems to be installed on a multicore x86 platform without impacting real-time capability. Each sub-application can be implemented with the appropriate operating system – e.g. real-time data acquisition with VxWorks, the user interface with Windows, and a firewall with Linux. Since Real-Time Systems is a wholly owned subsidiary of congatec, the distances between the two companies are very short, which gives OEMs a time advantage in support cases and promotes interdisciplinary solutions.
