Core business

EmTroniX is a dynamic Luxemburgish company providing technological expertise, engineering design, prototyping and production services in advanced electronics and embedded software to customers involved in the most demanding technological fields such as Space, Aeronautics and Automotive. EmTroniX engineers gather an extensive and exclusive experience in the latest and most advanced technologies. Using only state-of-the-art development tools, they are able to offer the most objective and cost-effective solutions to all customer technological needs.

EmTroniX offers the significant advantage of having in-house all the skills, tools and experience required to handle all the different technical aspects of engineering development projects.

We are very proud of having been active participants in the development of the first Luxembourgish S-AIS receiver embarked on both LEO satellites and the ISS. EmTroniX is currently developing a high-performance FPGA-based combined ADS-B / AIS receiver for terrestrial and space applications and a Proximity-1 SDR autonomous receiver.
