About us

For over 40 years, Hitex has been a leading supplier of innovative and reliable tools for embedded engineers. In addition, Hitex supports customers on a consulting basis in all phases of their development projects, from concept to system realization. The portfolio comprises optimized packages for all budget needs, from tools to services through to professional consulting. Whether selecting a new microcontroller, training, contract engineering or production services – Hitex is both an expert consultant and business partner at the same time.

Hitex was established in 1976 as a systems house that achieved considerable success in providing in-circuit emulators. In 1997 we acquired Kontron Elektronik’s development tools division, which made us the leading supplier of debug tools. Since the beginning of 2003, Hitex is part of Infineon Technologies AG. This connection guarantees Hitex a solid and secure future and yet allows the maintenance and extension its existing partnerships with other semiconductor manufacturers, as an independent company.

Headquartered in Karlsruhe in southern Germany, Hitex’s international subsidiaries and distribution offices can be found in more than 30 other countries.

Hitex also works closely with leading semiconductor and compiler manufacturers in order to support latest product and software releases, as well as industry standards.
