Supercomputing Systems AG


As a development services provider, we bring 25 years of experience in the areas of electronics, software and system design into your projects. Our work is based on reliable technical expertise, well-founded methodological competence as well as significant experience in project management. The team, consisting of over 120 proven experts, covers a broad spectrum of technologies: software development, cloud solutions, IOT systems, AI /VR / AR solutions; hardware, FPGA- and GPU systems, fast communication systems, embedded system software. Our algorithm specialists find even the finest of signals in enormous data volumes and develop effective decision-making tools to optimize complex procedures. Thanks to the experience we have gained from more than 2000 projects for over 300 customers, we succeed time and again in subdividing complex challenges into manageable projects and implementing these with a high degree of planning security. That is why many of our customers reduce the complexity and the risk relating to their projects by delegating the responsibility for dates and deliverables to us as part of fixed-price projects. We realize innovative solutions and maintain them during their entire life cycle. In doing so, we align ourselves 100% to the requirements of our customers’ projects and fund ourselves entirely from this income. We see ourselves as an open and interested partner for our customers and join forces with them to achieve success.

A retrofit is a modernization of a system, which consists in replacing or adding some of its components while keeping others. The main advantage of a retrofit is the saving of resources. Instead of purchasing a new system as a whole, it is possible to integrate new functions into an existing system, e.g. via new software or targeted components, while retaining the majority of hardware components. Paired with this ecological advantage (resources and limited construction effort) the economic aspect plays an important role (continuity, integration, implementation time). Zurich-based Supercomputing Systems AG (SCS), founded in 1993 by Professor Anton Gunzinger of ETH Zurich, has long observed the waste of resources in industry. For electronic systems, from simple radiators to locomotives, new equipment must be purchased regularly due to partial obsolescence. While this seems to stimulate the economy, much of the country's wealth and resources are wasted. In 2009, a first project was implemented by SCS to counter a partial obsolescence with a retrofit and thus modernize an IT solution without having to acquire a new global solution. Instead of buying new ticket machines for public transport in the canton of Zug, SCS made a retrofit. This pioneering project paved the way for many other projects (dynamic passenger information displays, parking guidance systems, relay interlocking systems) in which an SCS department has now specialised. Coupled with the openness of the system and its interfaces, our retrofit experience has proven to be a disruptive business model. The original captive lock-in model is replaced by a customer-oriented model. Subsequent developments and a corresponding roadmap can be planned according to requirements and implemented more cost-effectively. Traffic lights, luggage lockers, airport infrastructure, rail technology, etc. All these facilities and many more can be renovated and prepared for the future. SCS is committed to modernizing all of them.
