Overview

The CETITEC is the leading Company in the Market for Automotive Gateway-Solutions (Firmware and Tooling) between various Field Bus-Systems (e.g. CAN ®, MOST ®, Flex-Ray®, Ethernet) and Automotive Framework products including Application Generators for MOST ®.

The construction of a new vehicle begins from different Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEMs) such as for example Porsche, GM, Honda, Daimler, Audi. Tier one companies are the second most important member of a chain, supplying components directly to the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) that set up the chain.

The complexity of modern electronic control units (ECUs) and the required set of their mainly based on software features are constantly growing. At the same time however, the number of car models along with its’ complexities have increased while development time to market has been greatly reduced. This trend has led to tier-one suppliers being forced into the role of being a 3rd party software integrator and device manufacturer.

And this niche in close cooperation with an OEM takes Cetitec with its products. Sometimes Cetitec is acting as a tier one (for example by providing ABC, Automotive Bus Converter that supports an easy transformation of information between different automotive bus systems). Otherwise Cetitec is carrying on the supply for tier one companies ( ACS: Automotive Communication System, UGW: Universal Gateway, routes information between automotive devices between different Automotive Bus Systems in real-time, s. flyer.).

CETITEC is currently working with the most renowned car manufacturers to produce state of the art software solutions whenever the market demands. CETITEC’s software solutions have created a “brand” which provides an instant return of investments immediately after the beta release. In combination with complex field bus networks of MOST, Ethernet, Universal Gateway (UGW) or Automotive Communication System (ACS), CETITEC’s products offer capabilities that are unique to the market. CETITEC’s Gateway-Test-System (GTS), an automated testing of gateway functionality, is also a product that has not been reproduced by any known competitors.

CETITEC USA Inc. was established in 2016 in USA as an independent Corporation to support our growing number of clients inside the United States It was founded from the embedded software business, as well as the consulting and support businesses of Cetitec GmbH.
