Shiratech Solutions, Fast Forward Product Development

By eeNews Europe

Where is the heart of your company? What is the place where new and innovative products first see the light? Talking with Ishay Kokavka (CEO), it is clear that Shiratech is exactly at the heart of developments. As part of the AY Electronics group, Shiratec takes care of new product development for all the different departments and clients of the group. With development teams in Russia, Israel and India and strong partnerships with companies like Analog, STMicroelectronics and NXP, Shiratech is in a good position to do rapid development. The company gained their experience with the development of Smarc (Smart Mobility ARChitecture) and designing boards for the 96Board communities.

“Very fast development is our big advantage”, explains Ishay Kokavka, “With the teams we have in the different countries we can do developments in 3 to 4 months’ time, we have all the expertise in house.”

Shiratech is showing three new products at the Embedded World 2019 edition in Nuremberg. The first one is the BODYCAM project, which has a camera and other sensors inside that allow security people to record and communicate data in case of emergencies. It offers live streaming and analytics, and because it is an open platform it allows you to develop your own specific applications or analytics. The device can communicate through WiFi, Bluetooth and 4G and provides continuous live streaming to a control centre.

The second product Shiratech developed, together with Analog and Arrow, will allow companies to do preventive maintenance on their installations. The product, iCoMox, has four sensors (temperature, acceleration, magnetic and acoustic) that can create a profile of the machine or motor in operation. These profile data can be monitored and compared with previous collected data or data received from identical machines. The profile will tell you if the system needs repairs or is ready for maintenance. This product can be connected with, for example, a motor and keep a close eye on its performance. With this solution you can reduce costs of maintenance and create an industrial environment with a guaranteed high uptime.

The third product, IOT Cube is a full home automation solution that will help you keep your house and the people living in it safe. Inside the box the electronics use the same format as the 98board and uses a mezzanine to add new functionalities. The systems uses sensors and microphones to monitor the house or premises. The integrated microphones can be programmed to communicate, for example with elders in case of an emergency. You can use it as a baby monitor, or any other application that requires vocal contact between a control centre and the home.

“The most important message is that we developed these products in three months and that we can be trusted as a production partner. Other companies trust us and they know they can expect new products within a very short timeframe”, explains Ishay Kokavka. “The next step is to find new partners that can open up new markets and do the actual sales of the product.”

The interview was recorded at the Embedded World 2019. More information can be found at the website of Shiratech,
