Product & Application Design

Our holistic design and engineering philosophy helps our customers achieve low costs, high quality, and speed to market.

To help our customers accomplish more, we provide design and product engineering services for hardware and software with superior skills in handling the combination of electronics manufacturing services, comprising mechanics, cable assemblies and electronics.

Design & Engineering

GPV employs around 150 specialists, engineers and technicians who provide customers with technical information, consulting, and training. Due to our vast experience in design and product engineering services within EMS, GPV can provide support for existing products as well as system design of new product introductions and developments. A network of external development partners and proximity to universities keeps GPV on top of the newest technological advances within the EMS industry.

Development Disciplines

Our interdisciplinary team exploits group synergies and is particularly distinguished in the following fields.

High-frequency, radio, and communication technology
Embedded-Software in C for 8 to 32-bit microcontrollers, from microchip PIC to ARM A8
Power electronics in the low watt to one kilowatt range
Implementing of sensor technologies
For applications with increased environmental requirements such as automotive production, defense technology or potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX)


GPV’s engineering teams work hand in hand with our production structures and know the interfaces to sales, purchasing, logistics and production like the back of their hands. This experience gained over decades allows us to create optimum designs.

Production requirements taken into consideration during development
Inclusion of production interfaces during the concept phase of a development project
Orientation on customer interfaces during industrialisation
Realisation of supplementary subtasks (e.g. certification)
Consideration of strategic suppliers during component selection
Realisation of inspections and conducting of analyses for specific quality requirements

Design-for-Excellence (DFX)

Early involvement in a spirit of partnership ensures optimum costs coupled with the highest quality and quickest availability.

Design for Manufacturing (DFM): Layout testing / material testing / EMC
Design for Testability (DFT): Checking of testability / test concept
Design for Cost (Optimisation) (DFC): Optimum sourcing strategy / 2nd source / Obsolescence management
Design for Security (DFS): Risk management / Physical security / Traceability
Design for Logistic (DFL): Optimising of throughput and delivery times / supply security
