About us

HighTec EDV Systeme is a privately owned company since establishment in 1982 and the world's largest commercial open source compiler vendor. HighTec has offices in Germany (headquarter), Czech Republic, The Netherlands, Hungary and China.

HighTec ensures independence for the future and the most reliable and secure tools for embedded software development. The HighTec C/C++ compiler is portable and always available for the latest chip revisions for our supported architectures ahead of general release.

PXROS-HR is HighTec's ISO26262 ASIL-D / IEC61508 SIL-3 certified multi-core real-time operating system (RTOS) provides the highest level of data protection, functional safety and robustness.

HighTec offers complete development, training and consulting services in the areas of performance optimization, functional safety, porting from single-core to multicore systems and to the AUTOSAR environment.

Our innovative team is highly skilled and dedicated to quality. We are passionate about what we do and support our customers to both sustain and advance their market position.

Hightec has been assigned as Preferred Design House by Infineon and Preferred compiler partner by STMicroelectronics. Cooperation agreements in place with the semiconductor vendors, secure the long term availability of HighTec's development toolsets and guarantee automotive-grade support (incl. frozen version support, bug scanning compilers, etc.).
