Testimonials

ALFApumpTM – Implantable Fluid Pump

“Art of Technology understood our needs and critical requirements right from our very first meeting. I was impressed with their broad know-how of electronics technologies, system design and specifically for our application, their expertise with the design of medical products. They shared our sense of urgency and were able to meet our aggressive timeline with a product redesign that exceeded our expectations.”

Noel L. Johnson, Ph.DPresident & CEO, Sequana Medical AG

Alarm and Medical Monitor «AMON»

The «AMON» consotium was awarded the European IST-Prize 2004 for the design, implementation and testing of a wrist-worn device, communication link and comprehensive medical centre software package and for “… excellence in converting results from information society technologies research to innovative products for the market place.”

DBS-Antenna Switch

“Art of Technology demonstrated to us the application of HDP/MCM technologies with a prototype. HDP/MCM enables the construction of a new multi-switch without the need for a new ASIC redesign. This means a major time and cost saving, which is very important in these times of high competition. We were also very impressed with Art of Technology’s proven problem solving abilities. Their people are highly motivated and successfully achieved their planned objectives, which was done outstandingly.”

Wolfgang WendelLaboratory Head, HF Network Components Hirschmann Electronics GmbH Co. KG

Emergency Monitoring & Prevention «EMERGE»

“The project «EMERGE» is one of the first AAL projects to be launched. It has reached its aim of providing a ‘proof of concept’ of non-obtrusive sensoring in the home environment and model based ‘intelligence’ as the method of adding information and knowledge-value to raw data. The innovative concepts, technical solutions, knowledge base built in activity monitoring, evaluation-methodology employed and the AAL-laboratory have all shown the great potential of solutions that could reach the – at the moment – non existing market of AAL-ICT-based products and services within a time period shorter than the typical 6-8 years of FP projects. The EMERGE project is a major contribution to the aim of developing AAL-technology for the benefit of the citizen, the European competitiveness, and for addressing needs of the ‘ageing society’. The project is therefore given the overall rating of: Good to excellent progress (the project has fully achieved its objectives and technical goals for the period and has even exceeded expectations).”

Final Project Review Report (Extract)

EUROPRACTICE – MCM (European FP4 Project)

“The EUROPRACTICE – MCM Module has shown the advantages of HDP/MCM technologies in a highly impressive way. The size of the Pentium® MCM could be reduced by factor 4 without reducing the interface. Awarded with the «Technologiestandort Schweiz» prize, the module was used as a reference within the EU Project EUROPRACTICE – MCM and served as the basis for DigitalLogic’s design of the world’s smallest and most silent industrial computer. This project was the foundation stone for the founding of Art of Technology with its founders working intensively on this project.”

Prof. Dr. TroesterHead of Electronics Laboratory & Wearable Computing Group Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH-IfE, Zurich)

NETLANDER: Space Technology Study

“Art of Technology was able, with a feasibility study, to demonstrate the use of HDP/MCM technologies for an aerospace project. Detailed analysis showed that HDP/MCM enables drastic reduction of the construction volume of the necessary electronics, and a drop in power input to one third. Art of Technology also proved themselves highly qualified in dealing with subjects like the harsh environmental conditions, and presented outstanding solution proposals. We are very impressed with Art of Technology’s proven ability to resolve problems. They were highly motivated and reached all the set objectives. We hope, in further development phases, once again to make use of Art of Technology’s know-how.”

Mr. SchneiderProject Leader R+D, Contraves Space AG

Neurologger

“Art of Technology demonstrated competence and efficiency in adapting and expanding the functionality of the prototype logger. I appreciated very much the communication and the co-operation style characterising this company, and I am looking forward to realise other projects.”

Prof. Hans-Peter LippMember of the Board, NewBehavior AG

PermaSense – Sensor Network in the Swiss Alps

“Working together with Art of Technology has been a success and true pleasure.
