Founded in Munich in 1981, rd electronic GmbH develops electronic data measuring systems and data management solutions for customers worldwide. In 1991, the company expanded its services and established a production plant, located in Dresden, and is a leading supplier of data acquisition measurement and electronic control units for the automotive industry. Additionally, rd electronic GmbH opened a further subsidiary to develop software projects for its automotive customers, in the fields of development and production testing.
In 1998 rd electronic GmbH was instrumental in founding the Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems (ASAM). It's affiliate company rd electronic llc, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, was formed in 2004, and the two companies have been providing solutions, based upon the ASAM-ODS Standard, to major automotive companies in North America, Europe, and Asia.
In 2012 rd electronic llc became rde data solutions llc, to emphasize the extended range of test data management solutions offered to its clients.

Our mission is ...

  • ... to provide our clients with consistent and robust test data management systems, realizing optimum safety and reliability for the end product.
  • ... to provide high-end electronic car devices, guaranteeing complete customer satisfaction.


Our international team has had the opportunity to support many customers worldwide, and has worked for the last thirty years with leading car manufacturers in Germany and North America to provide intelligent test data management solutions for test stands in their production plants. We are also currently working with clients on data management projects for renewable energy.
