Who we are



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.

Allowing associates freedom to solve technical problems on their own while giving them every opportunity to succeed is the most rewarding aspect of my profession.

My professional interests include C++ and embedded systems. My hobbies are traveling, Sci-Fi books and computer games.



I write compact code with too many comments in C, C++, and Java. I like to change, customize, and break both hardware and software.



I am fond of solving interesting problems with interesting consequences. Coding, reading, cooking, or painting in my free time.



I like to create practical applications for people using Python in my free time. Enjoy spending weekends exploring the Columbus Short North.
