LabVIEW on custom hardware and in series products. From microcontrollers to SOM baseboards. For 24/7 embedded-systems with low-power, small size, low-cost, fast boot (1s)

Schmid Elektronik (Swiss Electronic-Design-Speciality Alliance Member) provides development/production/test services and credit card, stamp sized or fullcustom hardware powered by LabVIEW. Its added value ranges from industrial electronics production and graphically programmable microcontrollers to low-level hardware and software services. Schmids business model enables customers to leverage LabVIEW on hardware that can be mW-low-power (battery operation), small in size (postage stamp), low-cost (below 100$), fast boot (<1 second) and still featuring real-time and robust 24/7 operation. Dozens of customers with many applications proof that graphical programming is compatible with these hard requirements. Apart from the C-Code-Generator, Schmid offers individual SOM solutions, specialized RT-Linux components and fully customized cRIO-Modules. The applications range from embedded-systems, measurement networks and green engineering to IIOT/Cloud and cyber-physical-systems.

Case Studies

  • Design of series products with embedded-hardware
    Learn how three different embedded hardware classes and six typical requirements have been used in a high voltage monitoring system and a highly efficient solar plant. A table helps to choose the right embedded-hardware.
  • Long term monitoring 1000m below the waves
    In norways largest ever industrial project, gas pipelines required a long-term (6 months) monitoring system. The application called for a low-power, full custom hardware to which LabVIEW was deployed using the C-Generator.
  • Small and battery operated medical handheld
    A mobile monitoring device captures breathing disturbance of patients. 4 microphones are sampled simultaneously with 10kHz for 10 hours. This required full battery support and the size of a cigarette box.
  • Wheel rotation sensors in the size of a matchbox
    A mobile measurement network tests car tyres for extreme race conditions. 4 LabVIEW stamps transfer the measurements wirelessly to a SBRIO data concentrator to log, visualize and sent to a tower with telemetry.


  • A customisable Cyber-Physical-Systems Platform based on the SOM
    This platform has been used in a rugged 24/7 outdoor application. It enabled the sunflower solar plant to achieve an efficiency of 80% from solar.
