Custom Design

Made-to-Measure: Individual Custom-Design

As a competent solution partner, IPC2U not only supplies ready-to-use, high-performance embedded systems for use under technologically harsh environmental conditions, industrial single-board computers (SBC), peripheral components and automation solutions as well as accessories for embedded and stand-alone applications. IPC2U also offers semi- and full-custom designs in different performance classes with various input/output configurations, processor classes and types in variable software environments.

IPC2U provides a wide range of embedded products and services, from standard and modified SBC to high performance turnkey systems for harsh environments. Despite the enormous spectrum in the product range for standard solutions, sometimes even the highest standard for individual customer requirements is not sufficient to adapt a system to its own corporate design, to implement technical requirements for which standard components are not sufficient or to optimize ease of use. Beginning with the simple adaptation of standard modules, through the integration of customer electronics to full customizing, all levels of the customer-specific solutions are possible.

  • Optimization of the computer configuration
    According to the requirements of your application, e.g. with/without PROFIBUS, PROFINET, additional Ethernet/IP, BACnet, HART interfaces or optical drives

  • Optimal selection of the required components
    Concerning performance, long-term availability and compatibility, e.g. processor, fan, RAM, etc.

  • Client-specific housings
    3D CAD design and manufacturing of special housings and mechanical adaptations

  • Customer-specific hardware and software development
    Development, validation and manufacture of boards as well as creation and adaptation of customer-specific operating system images (Windows Embedded and Linux)

  • Installation of your specifically defined hardware
    e.g. third-party hardware, such as devices and PC cards, or other individual hardware provided by the customer

  • Optimal adaptation at board level
    Extension of interfaces, changes to the board layout, adaptation of components to customer requirements

  • Adaptation to assembly requirements
    Rack mounting, DIN-Rail switch cabinet mounting, wall mounting, integration into machine housing or into an existing control panel

  • Software environment and installation
    Selection of the optimal operating system, BIOS adaptations, individual software solutions for IoT, M2M and automation

Whether stainless steel fronts for the chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries or specially protected solutions for renewable energies, oil & gas production and processing, capacitive multi-touch controls for medical applications around the operating room, HMI for production automation in the automotive industry and general mechanical engineering or shipbuilding - IPC2U develops customer-specific industrial PCs for demanding applications and intelligent systems. IPC2U's strict quality control also enables ISO9001 certification of your individual solution. The continuous provision and maintenance of high-quality standards is of course in your interest as well as ours.

IPC2U has many years of experience with individual customer-specific designs and supports its project partners from the very beginning. As a manufacturer of robust embedded solutions, IPC2U develops industrial PCs and cooperates with well-known manufacturers in long-term partnerships. Development and construction are carried out with the most modern equipment in Germany in compliance with the highest ISO9001 quality standards. A defined process guarantees a fast and efficient implementation from the idea to serial production. Perfect logistics ensures the production and assembly of customer systems and just-in-time delivery. IPC2U is the ideal project partner for any industrial company that depends on reliable embedded computer solutions - worldwide project experience with highly sophisticated systems in a wide variety of industries and our focus on reliable and long-term available design for harsh environmental conditions are our arguments.

Assemblies, complete systems and accessories

IPC2U supports you in the replacement of discontinued EoL products, parts and components from the field of embedded computer technology. We use our worldwide information and supplier network to procure original parts for your legacy devices on the production line in a timely and cost-conscious manner.

Even though long-term availability in the industrial PC sector is guaranteed for years, the moment comes when manufacturers must discontinue their products because either necessary components are no longer available or the demand for obsolete technologies has declined to such an extent that further production is no longer economically viable. However, your engineers have developed your individual solution based on this one component for dedicated reasons and on your side a complete new development is also not economically viable? Here we have a conflict of interest that IPC2U can help to resolve:

Due to our high-quality and exclusive network of sales partners, we can quickly and cost-effectively procure new assemblies, complete systems and accessories that have officially gone EoL for you. Our well-structured database as well as the excellent networking with outstanding international partners and suppliers for components, modules, displays, complete systems and much more allow us a quick overview of availability, prices and delivery quantities of individual items and unused contingents. With an appropriate quantity, we can also convince our suppliers of a new edition of EoL components.

  • Mainboards of all form factors
  • Embedded CPU Boards
  • backplanes
  • PICMG CPU Boards
  • Embedded Box PC
  • panel PC
  • expansion cards
  • Storage media such as PATA drives

Industrial Boards, BUS Cards, Embedded Systems and Panels

IPC2U proactively informs you about discontinuations (EOL) or product changes (PCN) so that we can evaluate and procure alternatives together with you. If a product in our catalogue is marked as "Not available" or "EoL", please contact us. In most cases, however, we can nevertheless foster you and procure original parts or comparison types. Of course, you can also request us reconfigure and build replacement computing kits or complete systems based on EoL products, completely tested and equipped with all additional components.

Terms such as Life Cycle Management, Supply Chain Management, Shortage Supply and Excess Stock Management are part of our daily work.
