About emsys

The company was founded by Dr.-Ing. Karsten Pahnke and Dr.-Ing. Steffen Arlt in December 1998. Right from the start, emsys focused on serial buses like USB and IEEE 1394.

Just like the complexity and application areas of embedded systems advanced over the years, our products thrived to versatile and sophisticated embedded solutions.

Today we develop software stacks and hardware IP, especially for serial buses like USB or Ethernet, provide development services, consultation, concept development, implementation services and support.
