About us

Introducing Our Team
Manuel Melic
Managing Director BU Embedded Wizard

Manuel studied computer sciences and first became acquainted with the Embedded Wizard technology more than 13 years ago, when he wrote his diploma thesis about IoT protocols in combination with a UI application. Ever since this time, Manuel has had a thorough insight into the challenges an embedded software engineer has to tackle on a daily basis. This firm grounding in computer software engineering allows Manuel, also in his role as Embedded Wizard’s Product Manager, to identify and to understand the customers’ requirements in order to find the best possible solution in the creation of fast-responsive Graphical User Interfaces – with a focus on embedded systems.

Rudolf Leberfinger

Paul Banach
Embedded Wizard Architect / Partner

Without any doubt, when talking about Embedded Wizard, we have to mention Paul Banach. As the original creator of the Embedded Wizard technology, Paul has crucially determined the concepts and the technology behind it. With the inception of the programming language Chora and the concept of the Embedded Wizard Platform Package, he has managed to create a highly platform-independent, and at the same time highly efficient, GUI development and prototyping solution. Paul is responsible for the technological advancement of Embedded Wizard Studio and he is the go-to person when it comes to core aspects of the tool.

Alexander Wass
Managing Director of TARA Systems

Alexander initiated the Embedded Wizard project together with Manfred and Paul, laid the financial basis and found the first customers. Alex is still involved in all strategic decisions and supports Embedded Wizard wherever it is possible. Due to his background in consumer electronics he knows and understands the customers’ requirements – especially of those who are active in the domain of industrial, medical, and home appliances: Today, customers have to deal with cost effective microcontrollers and displays which extend or even replace classical control elements. He strongly believes that our professional GUI Services together with Embedded Wizard will generate a great User Experience, further reduce time to market and save development costs.
