RAFI uses its own standard ECUs in customer-specific touchscreens and control panels. This has allowed us to quickly realize a large number of projects for industry, agricultural and construction machinery, or medical technology to date, while saving resources. RAFI develops and produces the ECUs and touchscreens including sensors in-house, enabling it to ensure continuous long-term availability and quality of the systems.

RAFI covers a wide range of applications with its ECU program. The RAFI control unit in the “ECO-ECU” series with ARM Cortex-A5 or M3M4 processor was developed for simple, cost-sensitive operating and display tasks, with max. 800 x 600 pixel resolution. Control units in the “BALANCE-ECU” model range with a single ARM Cortex-A9 processor cater for higher operating requirements and resolutions of up to 1920 x 1080 pixels. The even more powerful “POWER-ECUs” with ARM Cortex-A9 in Dual or Quad design are used for touch user interfaces with animated graphics and resolutions of up to 1920 x 1200 pixels.

With the newest “ULTIMATE-ECU” series, RAFI is raising its range of Embedded Control Units to the next performance level. The “ULTIMATE-ECU” is designed for touchscreen applications with high quality 3D visualization, multi-touch inputs, and Full-HD screen resolutions on up to 24"' display diagonals. Its centerpiece is an ARM Cortex-A35, i.MX8QuadXPlus processor from NXP with Yocto-based embedded Linux core and a clock frequency of 900 MHz. As standard, the “ULTIMATE ECU” offers two Gigabit-Ethernet interfaces, a USB 3.0 interface and three CAN-Bus interfaces. The new ECU generation has already been proving its worth as a central computer for mobile processing machines in several projects.
