Electronics for NDT Systems

The Electronics for NDT Systems department develops innovative electronic modules for nondestructive testing solutions for and in collaboration with system integrators.

The activities focus on the development of new industrial-scale solutions for small-and-medium enterprises (SMEs) with the aim of giving them access to the market and the opportunity to independently maintain and support their products.

Internally, the department acts as a service provider for special electronics that are unavailable through the general NDT market. This includes transitioning laboratory prototypes to customized, industry-scale modules and carrying out the corresponding system implementation.

Digitization and cognitive sensor systems as an opportunity for more transparent livestock management

The NDT System Electronics department is structured around three main areas:

  • Module development, which serves as a platform for the various NDT processes and combinations of processes
  • Prototype implementation for stand-alone, customer-specific solutions
  • Microelectronics development, which serves as the basis for new, miniaturized testing concepts and solutions

The NDT System Electronics department relies on several areas of expertise to develop innovative, miniaturized concepts:

  • Microelectronics
  • Integration and fusion of different NDT sensors such as ultrasound, ultrasound array, electromagnetic ultrasound, eddy current, high-frequency eddy current, nuclear magnetic resonance and magnetic flux leakage
  • Intelligent electronic modules (analog, digital, firmware, online algorithms)
