About us

Our company

Adeas is an independent design house developing customer specific electronic modules, IP cores, products, and embedded systems. We offer design services involving hardware-, firmware-, and software design to create optimal tailor made solutions. Our creativity, knowledge, and experience enable us to turn ideas into solutions realizing the specific wishes of our client and meet challenging requirements.

Adeas is specialized in FPGA and SoC based electronics designs up to high complexity. We combine technology and domain knowledge to support companies active in professional and industrial markets including broadcast, video & imaging, semiconductor as well as test & measurement and high-tech machinery.

Adeas is based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands and serves customers across three continents.

A short history

Adeas was founded in 2005 by Antoine Wijlaars and Antoine Hermans. Both of them already had extensive experience working in electronics design service companies in design and managerial positions. From the first year of our existence, several large high-tech Dutch Corporations and SME’s put their trust in them outsourcing advanced electronic design work to Adeas.

Using FPGA’s in our designs, has been a logical choice from the very start and this we developed into a speciality. In 2012 Adeas was the first Benelux company welcomed into the Design Service Network of Altera (now Intel) as well as becoming the first certified member of the Xilinx Alliance Program. While steadily growing, Adeas expanded its offices twice in the early years until in 2013 further expansion resulted in moving to our current address. In recent years our customer base has grown more and more international especially serving a customer base in Broadcast and Professional Audio/Video.

Our drive

At Adeas there are two important factors that drive us to give it our best every single day. Firstly we have a passion for technology and strive to develop smart solutions for challenging cases involving (embedded) IP, module, product or system design. Developing and implementing solutions where others struggle, is what makes us proud. Secondly, we love to make our customers happy, ultimately by presenting them with state of the art competitive solutions that check all their requirement boxes. But also with the smaller things we encounter on daily basis like answering questions, explaining and advising or delivering on a promise. We enjoy working in close collaboration with our customers to get the best results. Our goal is to be our customers’ design house of choice delivering smart solutions that help them in achieving their goals with excellent quality and outstanding service.

Key Values

There exist a number of values we hold very dear at Adeas and we consider key values:

  • Reliability. In our opinion, an important virtue of a company is reliability, which translates in doing what you are saying and saying what you are doing. And of course, we take responsibility for our work.

  • Trustworthy. All our business partners can trust us with all kinds of information and depend on us keeping our word. We have a track record that proves that they can!

  • Creativity. Without creativity no truly innovative solutions can be found and realized.

  • Professional ability. No matter how elaborate the processes and stringent the procedures, rubbish in means rubbish out. Our people need to be good at their profession and it’s our responsibility to ensure that they are.

  • Proactivity. A quality Adeas teams have often been complimented on.

  • Hospitality. Is what we choose to be because it helps everybody feel good and welcome.
