History of XOn Software GmbH

 [2005]  [2004]  [2003]  [2002]  [2001]  [1999]  [1998]  [1997]  [1996]  [1995]  [1994]  [1993]  [1992]  [1991]  [1988]

2005 Certified Competence

XOn is strengthened by new employees and is one of two companies in Germany to employ a Certified LabVIEW Architect.
This is the year of LabVIEW FPGA. Our portfolio ist expanded by our new LIN Development Suite, a system for testing LIN control units. In the smiconductor industry we are using FPGA boards for chip testing and increase test speed significantly.

2004 A Painful Loss

The year is overshadowed by the death of one of our managing directors, Josef Trauner.

2003 XOn Grows Sky High

Our employees need space to work, so we quickly rent out an extra floor at Luisenstraße.

2002 The Discovery of Marketing

In the current unfriendly economic climate, XOn behaves noncyclically. For the first time, serious marketing measures are undertaken in order to better respond to our clients. Awaiting larger successes, we simultaneously increase our capacity through an additional engineer.

2001 XOn International

XOn's test standards are now used outside of Germany. Large projects are benchmarks for rear axle transmissions at Visteon/Swansea/Wales and mechanical testing of a motor at MWM/Sao Paulo/Brasilen. The team similarly becomes more international. Riccardo (Bosis) comes straight out of the University of Milan to XOn.

1999 Large Orders

The size of projects similarly grows. A highlight in 1999 was the test facility EPCOS with 100 complete testing bays. Infineon gets in touch with XOn as well and commissions us to develop testing and programming places for semi-conductor sensors. The team is strengthened through Peter (Prinzen) who voluntarily uses his spare time to hone this debut on the internet.

1998 www.xon.de, DAO Toolkit is sold worldwide, Rafting

The importance of the internet grows in Europe as well. XOn improves its debut on the Web with the new concise address and attracts a worldwide clientele through it. The DAO Toolkit is sold in Australia, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland and the USA in 1998. Together with ABB, the first motor mechanical testing test standards for Mercedes emerges in Berlin while the machines for Bosch's unit-injector fuel-injection systems go into production. XOn celebrates its 10th year anniversary with a damp and festive rafting expedition on the Isar. To this day, customers still gladly recount tales of the occasion.

1997 Carrera Railway

At the MessComp, visitors could prove their deftness at the Carrera racetrack.The computer with LabVIEW and IMAQ Vision is nearly unbeatable, but customers struggle until the night watchman switches off the power.

1996 Move to Luisenstraße

With much more place and new employees, work continued further in the fall at Luisenstraße. 137 m² appeared to be unlimited space for new ideas. Martin Müller brings new competencies to XOn as an electrical engineer. Soldering mathematicians have since then only come up in funny anecdotes.

1995 Registered Brand X1®

Our first product X1 honorobaly enters the scene. Design and logo are copyrighted as brands.

1994 Employees Are Recruited in Sachsen

Torsten (Levin) finds his way out of Annaberg-Buchholz to XOn and with LabVIEW implements test standards for Papst Motors. This development influences current software design from which new systems arose in 2002. At the MessComp in Wiesbaden, XOn is represented as National Instruments' partner.

1993 Framework Contract with BMW

After many successful projects, XOn receives a framework contract from BMW AG with which systems were to be quickly and flexibly delivered without burocratic costs.

1992 Alliance with National Instruments

Beginning in 1992, we became attracted to the sun in the new offices at Sonnenstraße, directly in the center of Munich. National Instruments had just established a German branch whose then three-man-strong team started an alliance with XOn, its first German partner. At this point in time, LabWindows for DOS was above all being employed. LabVIEW first became prominent with its 2.5 edition which operated on on Intel Processor systems.

1991 Höhenkirchen

In 1991, XOn moved together with Rd Electronics to newer, bigger and more beautiful rooms in the S-Bahn area outside of Munich. Josef Trauner, a long-time employee since 1990, still has a valid work contract which contains such interesting clauses as, "the employee has his own complete company workforce at his disposal." Apparently, we tried to wear out our work-study students in a complex project for Linde AG. Klaus Riedl stayed the course and is one of the managing directors today.

1988 Foundation by A. Zimmer and J. Döring

XOn sees the light of day. In the Commercial Registry Department B, our purpose as a company, "production and distribution of all types of software as well as engineering services in the area of system technology," is entered under number 86611. XOn mainly creates operations software and applications with the data loggers of RD Electronics. Our first office was located at Gmunder Straße with a dimension of 30,6 m²- it clearly offered more comfort than the classic basement office.The first big client of our early days was BMW.
