Our services: the full selection, single or pooled

Outline your request and we will design/construct the solution: with a neutral view, fresh approaches, sound knowledge, and with the help of state-of-the-art technology. On request, our engineers provide customers with support along the entire process chain or for individual phases, from the idea to the product launch.

The full selection, single or pooled

Analysis

Before the actual development work, we take the time to familiarize ourselves with your future product and your application. Based on the understanding gained, we then work alongside you to define the development goal and optimization criteria.

Specification

In line with the requirements, we carry out performance simulations from which we derive the specifications for the drive system. Error analyses and parameter variations can be tested quickly and easily on the model. This process saves precious time and hence money.

Development

We develop electric drives, inverters and DC/DC converters offering unparalleled performance and first-class efficiency. Testing is carried out in our fully equipped test environment.

Prototyping and serial production

Prototype production and serial production of customer-specific drive systems take place in-house or in collaboration with a network of highly qualified suppliers.

Industrialization

We assist you every step of the way, from sample to series production, and ensure that the design meets your requirements in terms of manufacturability and production costs.

Systems solutions require system know-how

Drivetek supplies you with high-end customized drive systems solutions, from scratch or to optimize form factor, size, weight, or functionality. We take on any challenge within the laws of physics. We can assist you throughout the entire process chain or during individual phases, from the idea to the product launch.

Systems engineering

Your choice for system technology

  • Systems modelling and analysis expertise
  • Hardware/software co-simulation

System behavior, different solution approaches, error analyses, and parameter variations can all be tested quickly and easily on simulation models. Drivetek focuses on, but is not limited to, the simulation of electric drives and their controllers. The associated mechanical, hydraulic, or electrical system can also be modeled on request.

Electrical machines

Your partner for permanent magnet machines

  • High-performance electric motors and generators
  • Outstanding power density and efficiency
  • From prototyping to series production

As an independent machine specialist, we have complete freedom and a full choice of technical options: we develop outstanding electric motors and generators without being restricted by existing tools or by material- and process-related manufacturer specifications. Our solutions therefore clearly stand out from conventional standard solutions. Each of them is perfectly adapted to the respective application and subsequent series production, regardless of whether they are high or slow speed, or have a short or long design; the application spectrum is wide open.

We rely on an advanced toolchain for analytical and finite element analysis-based optimization. Design, prototyping, verification, and production of customer-specific machines take place in-house or in collaboration with a network of highly qualified suppliers.

Hardware

From power to control

  • Advanced SiC or IGBT inverters for main and auxiliary drives
  • Low-voltage MOSFET inverters
  • Grid-tied or island-mode power generation inverters
  • Highly efficient and compact DC/DC converters (isolated / non-isolated)
  • DSP- and/or FPGA-based control electronics

We know the specific challenges of our markets. You can therefore expect us to come up with solutions that are less complicated, more reliable, and/or more economical. We strive to always use the most recent circuit topologies and manufacturing processes.

We assist our customers throughout the entire product development chain: from the idea to the finished product. During circuit development, we place great importance on standard-compliant designs, as well as testability and manufacturability. The involvement of the manufacturer at the earliest possible stage is essential. This increases efficiency and guarantees that everyone can successfully focus on the same goal. We work together with the partner of your choice or propose a manufacturer who can offer you the optimum price-performance ratio for the desired number of units.

Software

Because we understand the system

  • Embedded real-time applications on DSP and FPGA devices
  • Motor control strategies for maximum efficiency
  • Software solutions for grid-tied and island-mode power generation
  • QUASAR™ proprietary motor control software for all machine types
  • Q-control, proprietary Windows®-based diagnostic and configuration tools

The structured, method-supported approach as per the Drivetek V-process model makes Drivetek a reliable development partner. Together we have a wealth of experience in the areas of motor control, real-time applications, and power converter software.

Our talented software development team has extensive know-how in C/C++ programming for embedded systems and PC applications. Software for inverters of any kind is one of our proven key competencies. Our software platform allows us to develop complete solutions of impressively high quality in a very short time. We are familiar with the SPiCE automotive development standard. We also have experience with different communication modules for serial interfaces and Ethernet, as well as programming knowledge of VHDL. These skills allow us to integrate high-speed signal processing components into our systems.
