History

1984

Micro Systems Founded

Microprocessor technology established itself in the 1980s. Indeed, the market for industrial automation systems offered enormous potential in this period, allowing the flexibility and power of this new technology to really make its mark. This is the scenario in which Micro Systems was founded by Paolo Melegoni, Giancarlo Scianna and Fausto Tosi. The common goal of the founders was to work in a professional manner and put their personal experience to good use.

 

1987

Micro Systems moves to Novi di Modena

to the same headquarters the company occupies today. Thanks to the reliability of its electronics solutions, Micro Systems’ customers and business soon multiply. This allows the company to expand and take on its first employees.

1996

ISO:9001 Certification Awarded

Thanks to the company’s impressive results, Micro Systems’ headquarters triples in size. The European directive on electromagnetic compatibility for electronic equipment comes into force. Micro Systems is one of the first companies in Italy to invest in machinery for electromagnetic compatibility testing and to obtain ISO:9001 certification.

1998

Implementation of Management Control

Corporate organization is strengthened thanks to the introduction of management control and new computerized warehouse functionality.

2002

Embedded Operating Systems and Colour LCDs

Micro Systems chooses to strengthen its investment in research and development and its design department by taking on new engineers. The goal is to develop new solutions with innovative technologies based on embedded OSs and colour LCD screens.

2005

First Windows CE-based devices

The first generation of devices based on Windows CE .net 4.2 is born. The next year, further hardware implementations give life to the second generation, Windows CE .net 5.0.

2010

Multimedia Systems

The third generation, Windows CE .net 6.0, is ready: this is a system with advanced multimedia functionality, able to support very high operating speeds. Micro Systems reviews its entire corporate organisational structure, adopting a managerial system.

2015

Internet of Things

The new machine to machine (M2M) communication modules go into production: integrated in boards, these allow the machines to connect to the Internet wirelessly and communicate data, faults and their position. Access to the machines occurs in real time thanks to custom software which guarantees secure multi-level access.

2017

Linux and QT

Micro Systems has choosen to move over to the Linux operating system for user interfaces based on Microprocessor IMX6 of NXP. The potential of the QT language is adopted for programming complex user interfaces and new projects are developed with qlm and C ++ languages.
