Westernacher electronics is your full service provider for sophisticated electronic developments.

For more than 20 years we have been active in our engineering office in Reutlingen near Stuttgart in the field of electronics development.

For companies in the electronics industry we offer our engineering services for buffering capacity peaks. For customers from outside the industry, we take over the complete electronics development up to the outsourcing of the complete development so that they can concentrate on their own core business again.

Especially the most modern electronic development is characterized in technical terms by a constantly increasing complexity and in economic terms by increasing cost pressure. Both require an exact advance calculation of the assemblies or circuits to avoid iterations through redesigns.

This is where our holistic approach with intensive consultation, simulation, expert circuit and layout development, including technical and economic boundary conditions such as EMC, current density, suitability for automatic assembly, minimization of costs for development and production, etc. comes into play. In the course of electronic development, we quickly supply you with prototypes and create functional models in various phases to ensure successful transfer to series production. As a full service provider, we are happy to offer you the complete series production of your electronics through our network of partners such as assemblers and designers.
