The company ies Industrie-Elektronik Schmitz GmbH & Co. KG develops, manufactures and distributes electronic system components for a wide range of industrial applications since 1966. ies is the perfect partner with extensive know-how in the fields of soft- and hardware design, electronic component purchasing, manufacturing and testing for development, serial production and maintenance of customised electronic products. One of the main competences is design and production of OEM products, based on Kontron Embedded Computer-on-Modules such as X-board® or ETX®. This design concept combines high flexibility and short development cycles with limited effort for electronic PCB design. Due to the fact that this concept is in practice since 1992 ies can refer to a respectable number of successful design stories.
