Who is our interview partner?
After graduating from the Technical University of Rosenheim, Michael Lege started his career as a development engineer at SPINNER. He has now been employed there for 16 years and is currently Head of Product Development Electronics Line, responsible for electronics development together with his team.

Who is our customer?
For almost 75 years, the SPINNER Group has been setting standards in high-frequency technology with its products, making the information age even more vibrant. Our own claim is clearly defined: HIGH FREQUENCY PERFORMANCE WORLDWIDE

What is the application?
SPINNER offers a system for detecting faults and weak points in the broadcasting infrastructure of broadcast networks. The system can be used to detect the occurrence of arcs or the ingress of water and to prevent serious consequential damage such as fire in good time. Especially in the case of unmanned antenna stations, which are now stationed ever closer to residential areas, the consequences would be fatal. To enable uninterrupted data transmission between the control center and the transmitter station, a system-on-module including carrier board from DH electronics is used.

What was the initial situation?
Prior to working with DH eletronics, SPINNER had already been in contact with two large embedded suppliers to implement the application described. However, both times the expectations for a professional cooperation were not met. In the first case, the supplier was unable to deliver the initially promised long-term availability, and in the second case, the technical support was unsatisfactory. Particularly in the case of a security-relevant application, this was of course unacceptable, and so SPINNER once again went in search of a partner in the field of embedded systems.

What distinguishes the cooperation?
Through the recommendation of a satisfied customer of DH electronics, Michael Lege then became aware of the supplier of embedded systems in nearby Bergen. The customer remembered that he had already been advised in detail and competently by the Digital Heroes team in an earlier project. Michael Lege then sought a meeting with our DHSOM product manager and explained his requirements and previous problems. SPINNER needed a reliable module including a carrier board with two Ethernet ports within a very short time. With the DH PICOITX2 development and carrier board in combination with an i.MX6 System on Module, DH electronics was able to provide a prototype for the application in just a few days. After the first tests were successful, the further series modules were delivered within a few days. Since then, DH electronics' components have been successfully deployed at SPINNER in the system for detecting faults and vulnerabilities in the broadcast infrastructure of broadcast networks. In addition, SPINNER is currently conducting initial tests with the DHCOM STM32MP1 to evaluate its use in other applications.

What does SPINNER particularly appreciate about DH electronics?

  • Detailed and competent consulting by our product manager
  • Open and honest corporate culture, where promises are kept
  • Trusting cooperation, where problems are addressed openly
  • Experts in technical support who answer inquiries quickly and competently
  • High-quality products that are fully functional and ready for use right away
  • Extremely fast implementation and short time-to-market

We are pleased that we were able to help our customer in such a short time and look forward to further cooperation. Of course, we will continue to rely on a trusting cooperation in the future under the motto "open and honest".
