Who we are

Swabian Instruments is a research-driven company based in Stuttgart, Germany. We develop novel instrumentation for generating and acquiring digital signals, with applications in timing & synchronization, life sciences, and quantum technology. Two key components are contributing to our success: combining high-performance hardware and an intuitive yet powerful software engine that streamlines data processing and analysis in real-time. Ultimately, this makes it possible for our customers, e.g., MIT, Harvard University, Cambridge University, and NASA, to solve their measurement and analysis challenges efficiently. In 2019, our team was a finalist in Germany’s most prestigious entrepreneur award, the Deutscher Gründerpreis, and won second place at the Stuttgarter Innovation Award in 2021.
