Peer Technologies owns more than 25 years of experience with the design and use of electronic circuit simulators, both analog and digital, like Spice3, PSpice or Cadence PSD. CAD/CAE in multi-domain physics environments, e.g. with the ANSYS and Ansoft simulator suites, has been a steady enabler of virtual engineering in the field of structural mechanics, thermal conduction, Computational Fluid Dynamics, fluid/structure interaction, rigid body systems, electromagnetics, system simulation and microwave applications. And most of these methods have contributed greatly to the introduction of multiprocessor based solutions in industrial and medical electronics.

Mile stones in this field have been:

  • Respiratory Control Computer for Intensive Care (Drägerwerk, 1975)
  • Portable computer-controlled Personal Protection in hazardous environments  (Drägerwerk, 1976)
  • Motorola 6800 Personal Computer (1976)
  • Motorola ECL 10000 Programmable DRAM Tester (Hewlett Packard 1977)
  • IEEE 754 Floating Point Hardware (1978)
  • Motorola 68020 Unix System VR3 Workstation (1983)
  • Port of the Berkeley Spice3 Circuit Simulator to Cray-2 (1985)
  • World's First 8-Port Ethernet Switch (Hirschmann, 1988)
  • The Road to InfiniBand: Serial Extension of the ANSI X3T9.3 HIPPI Standard
  • High Performance Storage System (HPSS) for Solaris (IBM, 2000)
  • Portable Control Computer for Minimally Invasive Surgery (Karl Storz, 2002)
  • Eberle Shaver System C2 (Eberle, 2004)
  • Agilent Switched Reluctance Motor automated Test Facility (AMZ, 2008)
  • Linear Current Differential Displacement Sensor Principle (2010)
  • Synthesis of Carbon Fiber Mineral Composites with ANSYS (TechnoCarbon, 2012)
