Currently SHF employs 57 people at its headquarter in Berlin (Germany) and in its subsidiaries in Tokyo (SHF Japan Corporation) and Baltimore (SHF North America Inc.).

The products are mainly used in R&D centers to optimize the customer’s products or services in order to raise the data transmission capacity.

SHF has a special know-how in high frequency electronics and is recognized as one of the worldwide leading suppliers of components and measurement instruments for this industry.
The development and production of bit pattern generators and error analyzers dates back to the year 1996. Since then, SHF has always been the first company introducing the next high speed category (e.g. 20 Gbps in 1996, 40 Gbps in 1998 and 60 Gbps in 2014).
