Westenacher electronics was founded in 1997 as Dr. Westernacher & Partner GmbH, a division within the Westernacher group of companies. In the same year, a branch office was established in Reutlingen in the Stuttgart region.

Today, the administration is located near Karlsruhe. The engineering services are largely provided by Westernacher electronics from Reutlingen. The head office of the Westernacher Group, Dr. Westernacher & Partner Unternehmensberatung AG, is located in Heidelberg.


Microelectronics has always been a key technology. Therefore, the founding idea of Westernacher electronics in 1997 was to offer advice and services in the area of development of application-specific integrated circuits – ASICs.

Within a short time, Westernacher electronics developed very good business relationships with almost all major semiconductor manufacturers in Germany and worked intensively with them, particularly in the field of analog mixed signal layout creation and block design. Subsequently, Westernacher electronics acquired its own licenses from Cadence and Mentor for IC design.

Westernacher electronics then developed load boards and test circuits on PCB level for automotive suppliers and semiconductor manufacturers. From 2010 on, in the course of globalization, Westernacher electronics intensified the expansion of its service portfolio with regards to discrete electronics development and programming of microcontroller applications to be able to offer solutions also for small and medium-sized companies. Westernacher electronics has, in addition to experienced and motivated employees, an electronics laboratory with power supplies, oscilloscopes, climate chamber, sample production and own licenses for PCB design and circuit simulation.

Today, Westernacher electronics works together with well-known electronics manufacturers in the development of measurement and control technology as well as power electronics such as motor controls. Westernacher electronics also supports companies from other industries with the development of special circuits e.g. based on embedded systems or IoT.

Westernacher electronics is a recognized IHK training company for electronics engineers and IT specialists.

Benefits for you.

Westernacher electronics is supported by motivated and qualified graduate engineers in electrical engineering, business graduates, physicists, technicians, electronic technicians in permanent employment and trainees.

Today, after solid project planning with its customers, Westernacher electronics carries out technically demanding developments with close customer contact. Thanks to its infrastructure (own hardware and software, redundant internet access) Westernacher electronics can perform its services at its premises or optionally at the customer’s site or in a mix. Due to this and its long-term know-how, Westernacher electronics as an engineering company clearly distinguishes itself from the numerous agencies for temporary work. Customer orientation, strict protection of customer know-how and confidentiality are the guidelines of Westernacher electronics. This makes Westernacher electronics the ideal partner for contract development, coverage of capacity peaks and outsourcing of sub-areas that are not part of your own core competencies.

For device development and series production, Westernacher electronics works closely together with cooperation partners such as assembly service providers, design offices and mechanics.

Let’s work together.
