We support complex processes in microelectronic development and microelectronic management, starting from the idea, moving to the strategy and following through to its implementation. This includes selecting suitable suppliers (sourcing) and business models as well as sustainable and economical cost controlling (total cost of ownership). Using feasibility studies, we analyze possible solutions for our customers´ projects regarding their operability. After completing feasibility studies and selecting suitable suppliers, we support our customers with the drafting of contractual arrangements between both parties.

B-Horizon: Efficient Microelectronic Consulting
Our customers include companies out of the automotive and industrial sectors as well as semiconductor manufacturers. For our automotive and industrial customers, we begin by working together to prepare an individual Business-Case with a detailed statement of costs, a precise time plan, as well as an exact description of all relevant specifications of the system. Subsequently, we support our customers with the selection of a suitable semiconductor manufacturer. Through a multi-layered sourcing process, we help the purchasing manager identify the best possible partner. In doing so, we work using the Total Cost of Ownership approach. As part of our customer service in microelectronic development, we then offer to take over either a part or all of the management during the development phase of customer-specific semiconductors (ASIC, ASSP).
Semiconductor manufacturers engage B-Horizon, for example, to support their collaborations with their customers. As an external consultant, we take on the role of moderator and manager, being well acquainted with the development and decision-making processes, especially within the automotive sector. B-Horizon optimizes project activities as well as project controlling with the objective of reducing development time frames and optimizing time-to-market, from the idea to series production. We bring the wishes and requirements of our customers in line with those of their partners. In this way, B-Horizon leads the cooperation to a successful conclusion, to a market-ready and innovative product.
