Imperix Ltd

Imperix Ltd


Imperix is a Swiss company developing high-end control equipment and prototyping hardware for power electronics, drives, smart grids and related topics. Its products are designed to enable cutting-edge innovation in corporate and academic environments. They are especially valued for their ability to accelerate the implementation of laboratory-scale power converters and facilitate the derivation of high quality experimental results.


The company also offers various levels of integration services, intended to assist its customers in their prototyping activities. As such, its offering ranges from the delivery of plug-and-play hardware and software, to that of fully customized systems involving specialized control software algorithms.


BoomBox, a Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) platform tailored for power electronics, is a high-performance controller, dedicated to power electronics. It enables researchers to accelerate their developments by going early to the lab and challenging their control in a real-world environment, and helps R&D engineers to speed up their control developments, while guaranteeing a safe and sound control implementation.


When it come to the rapid prototyping of power electronics, one of the simplest ways to start working is to rely on pre-manufactured and pre-tested power modules provided by Imperix. Independently from the desired topology, such power modules can be assembled to form a working power converter system in a blink of an eye.


Imperix is essentially a manufacturer of cutting-edge laboratory equipment, tailored for engineers active in the field of power electronics and smart grids. Since the first sales in 2015, more than of dozen customers have already trusted imperix in order to accelerate their own product and software developments – and more generally their R&D activities – thanks to simplified prototyping procedures. Whether in the academic or the industrial sectors, imperix’s products are already supporting numerous control developments in Switzerland and worldwide, with applications in photovoltaics, energy storage and smart power converters.


Imperix ltd. is established in Sion, Switzerland. Its name is derived from the Latin verb imperare, which stands for controlling – or ruling – and refers to the company’s core business: the control of power electronic systems. It is a spin-off of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL).
