The company was founded as an engineering office by Dipl.-Ing. Günther Scholz in 1990. In 1994 they specialized in standard electronic devices for an easy and inexpensive control of graphic displays (DCU concept). In 1996, the company was renamed to F&S Elektronik Systeme GmbH, by Dipl.-Ing. Holger Frölich joining the management (H. Frölich & G. Scholz).
An important milestone in the company's history was the start of its own electronic device production in 1998. 100% of all F&S electronic devices are Made in Germany and are produced in Stuttgart-Vaihingen on highly modern production facilities. Every electronic device leaving F&S is operation tested (with display, touch,...) and meet the highest quality standards (ISO9001).
As the first product of another product family, the first NetDCU with operating system (WindowsCE/ Linux) was introduced to the market in 2000. This very successful product family was extended frequently with new, pincompatible members.
Long-term availability (5 years and longer), reliability, scalability of the computing power and the extraoridnary F&S support, made F&S products find its means in many applications in the industrial and medical field.
In the meantime, further product families like the PicoMOD product family (size of a credit card), the PicoCOM product family (low cost at 40x50mm), but also QSeven modules and the armStone product family (Single Board Computer) are available.
More than 50% of the F&S products are at home in medical applications, for example ventilators (anaesthesia and intensive respirators), lithotripsy (kidney stone fragemtation), therapy devices (stimulation current, movement trainer), measurement systems (blood pressure, blood analysis, blood withdrawal) and dental devices.
In the industrial area F&S products are applied in machine control, welding units (laser, plastics, point), smokeries, climatic chambers, robotic vehicles, time recording, etc.
F&S products are successful as well in information systems (POI with IE or video playback and camera interface), navigation systems in commercial vehicles and marine applications.
Major customers in Germany and all over Europe rely on F&S products since many years. Our success reflects in a growth of 20-30% per year.
Our goal is to offer innovative, reliable products with an excellent price-performance ratio and to create a crucial competitive advantage for our customers by quick and qualified support (13 hard- and software engineers).
