About us

Keith & Koep GmbH

Keith & Koep specialises in Embedded Computer Systems based on ARM architecture which are used in many different professional environments. As one of the leading suppliers in the field, we offer our customers know-how and expertise in the areas of electronic system development, system integration as well as the production of complex electronic products. We are able to successfully realise the various electrical and electronic tasks with high quality.

Ueber-usn-Foto-2.png With the Trizeps range we have brought the world’s first ARM-based SOM (System On Module) on the market. The idea to make the recurring elements available in a constant SODIMM form factor was realised here. The advantages of this system: development times can be shortened significantly and realisation is thus more cost-effective, upgrades to more recent computer technologies are comparatively simple. This idea later evolved into an international industry standard.

As a pioneer of this technology we have gathered a wealth of experience and acquired expertise from a multitude of successfully completed projects. Some of the systems developed by us have been working in industrial environments for decades. Our products can be found, among others, in industrial automation, robotics, automotive engineering, medical engineering, retail and aeronautical engineering.

Development and production under one roof

Keith-Koep-Hitachi-300x188Px.png A particular strength is our own specialised in-house production, where the most electronic units are manufactured, tested and shipped. Larger series are produced by reliable partner companies if required.
The experience gained in production puts us in a position to document the product properties and production conditions and, where appropriate, assist in the optimisation of the production line at the customer.


Keith-Koep-Lukaskirche-300x188Px.png The tight integration of the hardware and software development team with the internal production department allows great flexibility.
We are thus able to quickly produce and test a new development as a prototype, pre-production or small series thanks to direct data transfer from the layout computer to the production machine. This saves detours via external production companies. New printed circuit boards can be set up on our production machines immediately and made available in a short time.
