Founded in 1971 as Karlheinz Hartmann Electronic in Stuttgart, Germany, the company’s initial efforts focused on telecommunication installation services. Shortly thereafter, the company expanded to include printed circuit board production and layout services. By 1979, recognizing the growing market requirement for backplanes, Hartmann introduced design services and manufacturing of backplanes and became one of the first companies to use press-fit technology in backplane production.
With more customers requiring complete microcomputer systems customized to their unique requirements, Hartmann sought out a partner with system engineering expertise. Hartmann found such a partner and today is a member of the Phoenix Mecano Group, a $500 million organization.
With about 50 years experience in high-speed backplane design and manufacturing, we offer a wide range of standard backplanes and system platform products.
We offer highly sophisticated products corresponding with all common architectures, such as CompactPCI/2.16, PXIe, VME/64x, VPX, VXS, VXI, VXIe, CompactPCIe and beyond. From COTS products to fully custom solutions that guarantee the highest performance in signal velocity and performance, Hartmann Electronic is a trusted partner of customers spanning a variety of industries around the world.
