We will gladly develop your imaging-, video-, signal- or tracking- detector.
-And we enjoy every second of it! We help you to develop your detector smarter!

On behalf of our customers, we are developing advanced electronics in embedded systems, especially detectors for image, video, signaling and tracking features. Our commitment to your needs and our knowledge in advanced microelectronics enables us to design your optimum solution. We are happy to say that our customers are coming back to us and that many highly qualified Electronics Engineers choose to work at BitSim.

BitSim history – a very good start to an even better continuation

Thanks to the fact that some of Sweden’s most experienced consultants in electronics engineering founded BitSim AB in summer 2000, we now, as a design house, offer market-leading expertise in the area smart electronics development.

Our customers have benefited from our expertise since the very beginning and we quickly became one of the largest providers of competence in design of ASIC & FPGA.

Now history

NOW has been in business since 1985 and our premises are situated in Kista north of Stockholm, Sweden. We have a very qualified and experienced staff and a well-equipped electronics lab. With structured development methods, modern tools for software development and a self-developed quality system, NOW develops products and systems that fulfills customer demands.

NOW has extensive knowledge of what is technically and economically feasible, and can in cooperation with the customer decide a suitable further development of an idea or a project with the latest technology. We are used to handle demanding development projects with a short time span, and often accomplish tasks in our own premises at a fixed price. A close cooperation with subcontractors allows mass productions of products in industry, military and medicine.

We also deliver consulting services concerning design and programming tasks for projects that are performed at our customers’ premises.

NOW is also hired for investigations, design inspections and system work.
